Perfect for just the Joystick for a center "between the legs" position
Having a small plate that is not bigger that the joystick makes this suitable for a middle mount you don't have the extra size of the standard plate Makes for a much more comfortable setup. Just wish you could choose which poles and mounting plates you get with the Wheel Stand Pro so that you don't have to buy it separately and have extra unused mounting poles and plates in the closet.
Not much to mention beyond other reviews. Solid plate allowing more space for my leg after removing the old warthog base-plate which was hitting my leg low due after using an extension tube. I made a circular cover using a thin piece of plastic to cover electronics sandwiching the cover between the z-plate and the warthog stick. Later i thought that electrical tape would have been faster.
Z Joystick Adapter JS/Wheel Stand Pro Super Warthog Wheel stand
Through much trial and error (having gone through a variety of possible HOTAS mounting configurations and products) I fortunately found my way to the Wheel Stand Pro stand. As I have the TM Warthog HOTAS any support system was going to have to be substantial. With the weight of the HOTAS and ACM applications the challenge was real. Having been disappointed in earlier attempts to find a working solution I found the Wheel Stand Pro. With some apprehension I purchased the stand. I could see the logic behind its construction but tested with hands on would be the final answer. The product shipped promptly. Packaging was very good. All parts, plus extra. The stand went together in a quick, logical manner. All parts were machined to perfection, holes lined up, parts joined perfectly, etc. then, the test. Attaching the Warthog HOTAS. Easy and not the first sign of strain from the stand. To explain further, you set the HOTAS up how you like (ergonomic hands on considerations), and lock things in. After that, nothing budges. The HOTAS tamed, no shake, wobble, just smooth stick and throttle movements. Parts clamp and lock in place. I was suspect of that working at first but found once clamped, it’s locked in, as in, does not budge. This gives you peace of mind while remaining focused on your flight simulation. As for the ergonomics, long stressful flights in flight simulations can produced fatigue. The Wheel Stand Pro offers about every adjusted HOTAS positioning you can imagine. Further adjustments are simply a matter of loosening a clamp or nut. I also purchased the Z Joystick adaptor as the TM Warthog joystick comes with a large substantial base plate which in my case became cumbersome. The Z adaptor removes the need for that plate and opens up multiple new setup configurations for the joystick. My search for the perfect HOTAS support system ended having found the Wheel Stand Pro and Z adapter. I now fly in comfort and easy of mind that my focus remains heads up on on the screen, not worrying about what the support system is doing. The Wheel Pro Stand also is collapsible for storage purpose. If you’re looking for a rock solid support system for a hearty HOTAS rig, look no further. The Wheel Stand Pro provides the perfect solution.
Necessary for TM Warthog
I purchased this for my Warthog stick which I use with an stick extender kit. Certainly gives it a more realistic feel as I need to lower the stick to accommodate extending the shaft. Without it, you are stuck with entire warthog metal base taking up way too much room. The criticism that I have with the product is the square design that does not entirely cover the base of the stick allowing some of the electronics to be exposed. It’s really not a big deal and the advantages are to great to make this a deal-Buster. Also, I appreciate this coming with its own pole which allows me to switch this out quickly with a flight yoke. I mounted my yoke on the old mount, allowing for a much quicker switch-out. Overall, I’m very satisfied and would highly recommend.
Nice! Must have for center stick configuration
Only complaint I have is that it isn't round and doesn't completely cover the bottom of the stick. I do not anticipate this to be a problem.. Nice to have more space between the throttle and the center stick.
Best setup possible
Got the entire wheel stand pro and just got the adaptor. It is a game changer to get rid of the wide base on the joystick. Would recommend to anyone and very easy to install.
Ive had the wheelstand pro for the warthog setup for almost 2 years now and honestly prefer this over my older Obutto cockpit. This particular mount here fits my warthog stick perfectly; the only thing I dont really like about it is the fact the mount is square and not round like the base is. This leaves the board exposed to the elements and thats the only reason why I give it 4 stars. Now I can only wish they would make an adapter plate for other joysticks on the market as well; I had to fabricate my own mount for my Virpil T-50CM2 and warbrd base. I have both these joysticks attached to my setup as I write this and absolutely dont regret buying this.
Excellent option for center-stick mounting
This mount is perfect for a minimalist center-stick setup. If you plan to use an extension, you will likely need to cut some length off of the tube to allow the stick to sit low enough. Now what would be really cool is to use that same piece of tubing to actually build the extension itself... hmm...
As others mentioned, I do wish that the bottom plate was round because having the gimbal electronics exposed made me nervous. I ended up 3D printing a protective cover for the base of the gimbal so I didn't have to worry about anything getting bumped or shorted.
Warthog Joystick direct mount without base.
Excellent Fit and comfort. Ditch the factory base plate and mount the base directly to this part. Holes match up perfectly. This is a must have for mounting the stick between your legs. This is way more comfortable and adjustable without the factory base plate in the way.
Sweet upgrade to my flight rig!
I expanded a Warthog Pro system to a Warthog Super about a month ago...getting this adapter to move my Warthog Joystick to the middle position was the final step in creating s realistic setup for my flight rig. I use DCS almost exclusively now flying the F-18 Hornet and P-51 Mustang that both have the center joystick position...IT IS AWESOME. As expected, the build quality is top-notch and super solid just like the rest of the Wheel Stand Pro line. I can't recommend this product more highly!
