 The more who respond the more likely this will happen and maybe we could even get a 'special' price for beta testing equipment. That's pure speculation on my part.

FYI: I used to be a TM beta tester, they would send me free sticks...why CH will not do that is beyond me.

 I never thought of that. You're right though, I didn't think that one through seeing how much I am (was) looking forward to the USB gear.

I did beta testing for TM too.  I used to have controllers laying all over the place.  All I really have left are driving wheels.

You ever test out that fragmaster they were distributing?  Perhaps the worst concept for a stick (triangle?) I've ever seen.  I gave it back to them after 5 minutes of testing saying... "who was the braniac that came up with this one?"

Hehehehe

Deja, I tested up til the F22, I have one F22 stick from beta, after that I didn't beta test, however, I was responsible for one design modification to the springs in the older sticks, they used to have the springs ride on a bare thread, I sent them a 3D-CAD drawing showing them how using a solid casting or bushing would lessen the chances of springs breaking due to the surface it rode on...months later they went to a cast-type whereas the spring rode on a smooth surface.

Animal: your offer explains to me why she comes running to me all the time.

If she can't get what she wants at home...
