Hi all,

A looooong while back some genius posted a piccy of a modification he/she had done to enable a hand held trackball mouse like this...

...to be mounted on his Force Feedback 2 and be used to control the view.
It had an alumnium bracket mouted onto the base of the stick that bent upwards and held the trackball to the left enabling your thumb access the trackball with a deft move to the left. The two buttons could act as the gunsight and normal view switches too, though its a shame there isn't a third one.

I cannot find the thread via the search feature unfortunately- are you out there oh DIY genius? Or does anyone know of this mod mentioned anywhere else?
