Just got back home from a dig.

Looks like the guys have answered the questions.

If I ever sell the Deus all I do is remove the 2 small screws and replace the XP shaft controller slide fixing.

My first case has served me well and I will replace it soon.

My controller is still unblemished when I remove it for charging. ;) Jerry.

Excellent idea I ordered a black Wii lanyard and it arrived today 89p

I have the clip on control box but this will give me more peace of mind.

Thanks Grimhunt

I bought a tether to see what its like. It fits with two nylon screws into the recessed screw hole cavity to fasten the tether to the remote.

Q. If you are paying a thousand quids of your hard earned spondolicks why aren't the lanyards included? and why does one have to put up with awkward recharging facilities...
What I'd like to see from XP is either an audible alert when the various bits are fully charged, or alternatively a trickle charger that could be left on overnight. We're warned not to charge for more than 3hrs, but it would be easy to forget and leave them on for longer. I haven't done so yet (I usually set a reminder on my phone) but a smart charger would make things so much easier.

Nice idea on the lanyard ::g I'd imagine quite a few went AWOL with the old magnetic attachment, but even the clip system gets a bit loose after a while.

I have just fitted a lanyard and a protective cover to my controller its a lot of money to loose or damage a controller ::g
As long as it is not a Silicone cover.. Guess it will "Kill" the controle unit from inside..

I guess its a good thing having a lanyard or any method so that the controller is not lost when its mounted on the stem,but as i use it solely as a audio machine i always carry mine in a zipped pocket.

A simple lanyard is a good insurance policy for a £600+ controller.

If you are using the Deep or Hot settings you need to watching the controller visual X-Y screen readout while mounted on the stem all the time.

So the safety lanyard that I started this thread with some long time ago is more important than ever. ::g

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.
