FSSB-R3 Lighting

490,00

The FSSB R3 Lighting is the evolution of the FSSB R3 Warthog, with the same high quality force sensors but with an improved electronic system to include the customer feedbacks there where the software cannot afford.

As in the FSSB R3W, the design of the sensors board gives a tact, smoothness and accuracy flight control which makes the flying experience can not be compared to anything experienced before; high-precision maneuvers that are impossible without hundreds of training hours are now made easily, thanks to the smoothness of control in areas close to the neutral position.

It is very difficult to express with words the feelings of control that the new R3 sensor transmits, but after testing it … you cannot fly without it.

  • Independent force sensors for each axis.
  • Acoustic and RGB light advices.
  • Functional with Cougar or Warthog sticks and compatibles.
  • Independent and hot adjust of axes sensibility.

Now you can enjoy a lot of new features when use the FSSB-R3L with the new Realsimulator’s grips, as the F16SGRH or the F18CGRH. The new firmware developed for this purpose allows to have 8 memory slots, 64 different buttons, a keyboard to send programmable keystrokes and a mouse.

Availability: in stock.

Description

The FSSB R3 Lighting is the evolution of the FSSB R3 Warthog, with the same high quality force sensors we have improved the electronic system to include the customer feedback there where the software cannot afford. It has a new and improved electronic board, with state of the art MCU that allows us to improve the features of the Lighting to make sure it will be the best of the market in the next years.

Force base FSSB-R3 Lighting and F16SGRH grip

The FSSB-R3 Lighting puts the new levels of quality, sensitivity and precision in hard to reach values even for expensive professional equipment.

The design of the sensors board gives a tact, smoothness and accuracy flight control which makes the flying experience cannot be compared to anything experienced before. High-precision maneuvers that are impossible without hundreds of training hours are now made easily thanks to the smoothness of control in areas close to the neutral position.

Although small, we have provided in the sensor system a small deflection which allows a slight angular movement in the stick. This helps to facilitate adaptation to a force control which is appreciated in the first flights. It is very difficult to express with words the feelings of control that the R3 sensor transmits, but after testing it … you cannot fly without it.

During the quality control process which is done manually to each unit manufactured, the FSSB-R3 Lighting is calibrated and adjusted but it has also included an electronic calibration that allows the user to perform this operation as many times as necessary.

Now you can enjoy a lot of new features when use the FSSB-R3L with the Realsimulator’s grips, as the F16SGRH or the F18CGRH. The new firmware developed for this purpose allows to have 8 memory slots, 64 different buttons, a keyboard to send programmable keystrokes and a digital mouse.


Produt installation, configuration and support

The installation of FSSB-R3 Lighting is very easy since it is a plug and play device with no drivers and we provide you with the necessary tools to configure and upgrade it. So, we give you a GUI application (RS_HID_DEV_TOOL) to configure it and a firmware update tool (DCC) to install new versions of firmware.

After connecting the FSSB-R3 Lighting to your computer via the mini USB connection, it will be recognized as an HID device with the name “FSSB R3 XXXXX”, where XXXX will be the name of the firmware installed.

Programs, firmwares and product user guide can be found in our DOWNLOAD page, where always you will find the latest version of them. All of them are distributed grouped in an installer named RS_TOOLS.

Double possibility of use: Standalone or Upgrade for HOTAS

The FSSB-R3 has a proprietary electronic system that include both, the analog and the digital processing. This allows it to work as a full functional standalone base that only need a grip and a plate for desktop usage.

As grip, we suggest you to use any of our grips (F16SGRH or F18CGRH) with the extended features that they add or any of TM compatible grips. And as plate, we offer you the FSSB-R3 Plate as product to buy, although given its simplicity, surely you can make it yourself or use one that you already have.

We offer the video FSSB-R3 Warthog Alone to show you how to easy is the installation.

In addition to the advantages offered by the use of the FSSB-R3 standalone, this has connectors that allow to send data from FSSB-R3 to HOTAS electronic board. In this way, you replace the HOTAS base with the FSSB-R3 base, benefiting from the high quality of X and Y axes data. For installation using video FSSB-R3 Warthog HOTAS Upgrade.

When use with HOTAS electronics, you can connect both USB cables to the same computer and choose in your simulation program which joystick use. Obviously, the user can configure the simulation program using both, the HOTAS variables and buttons as well as native FSSB R3 variables and buttons, being limited only through the options of the software you are using.

Déjà connu  pour ses 2 mods pour le Cougar de Thrustmaster, la société espagnole Realsimulator récidive avec un nouveau produit, mais cette fois, pour le Warthog. Contrairement a ses prédécesseurs et concurrent, le FSSB R3 apporte des fonctionnalités qui vont bien au delà du simple mod.

Qu’est ce qu’un FSSB R3 :
Il s’agit d’une base mécanique remplaçant la base du joystick du Warthog de Thrustmaster, le manche venant tout simplement se visser dessus. La principale différence se situe avant tout au niveau du débattement du manche : il n’y en a pas, du moins a peine quelques degrés. Vous avez bien lu, la ou la base d’origine du joystick du Warthog vous offre un contrôle des axe X et Y sur prêt de 60°, ici, le manche est fixe. Cette base utilise une technologie dite à « jauges de contrainte » pour mesurer les forces exercés sur le manche et transforme ces informations en  ordre pour le simulateur.

RealSimulator, enterprise specialized in high quality air simulation products, has recently developed a new mod for the HOTAS Warthog: the FSSB R3 Warthog, which I had the privilege to test during last weeks, and I can say it’s a marvel of the technique. A modification for the HOTAS Warthog that is really worth, if what we are looking for is absolute precision controlling the aircraft and of course mainly, for F-16 Falcon enthusiasts, though not only for them, not at all, as we’ll see later.

RealSimulator, fiel a su pasión por la simulación aérea de alta calidad, acaba de desarrollar un nuevo mod para el mando HOTAS Warthog: el FSSB R3 Warthog, el cual he tenido el privilegio de probar durante las últimas semanas, y puedo decir con satisfacción que es una auténtica maravilla de la técnica. Una modificación para el HOTAS Warthog que merece realmente la pena, si lo que se busca es precisión absoluta en el control de la aeronave y por supuesto sobre todo, para los amantes del F-16 Falcon, aunque no exclusivamente, ni mucho menos, como veremos.
