Re: Building a custom grip for a VKB, adding buttons

If you are speaking with the engineers anyway, please see if there is a feasible way to interface a custom axis in a custom grip as well.

Being able to make a RAF spade grip with analog brake would be nice.

Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

Same as above, can't find the tracking link on your site.
I did get an initial email from DHL that they had received info from you that you intended to send me a package, but after that nothing.


Edit: disregard, I came home to a slip from the local DHL agent saying I had a package ready for pickup!

Re: Two #50 Springs

For the Gunfighter Mk.II, the maximum is 2x #40 (or 1x #50 and 1x #30) spring per axis. I would not recommend anything different, especially not 2x #50 springs per axis. If you desire a little more resistance closer to the center, play with the dry clutches as well (the springs provide increasing r...

Re: Questions and Answers

Would there be any possibility of a DIY grip kit similar to the Warthog adapter, to be built into customer-built grips for more obscure aircraft? Basically the mechanical fastener coupled to a circuit board to which buttons, pots and/or hall sensors could be attached. Seems a terrible waste to have ...

Re: Anyway to replace GF mk1 with mk2

Let me discuss it internally. However, I do not see a reason to not produce rev.A version of the new grips. Rev A and B grips use the same components, they are electrically fully compatible. Any news on the status of either Rev A MCG (Pro) or standalone Rev B MCG (Pro) plus a connector conversion k...

Re: Anyway to replace GF mk1 with mk2

I already have a rev A pro extension.
I'd prefer to only buy the parts needed to convert this, or a small rigid adapter in a similar form factor as the twist adapter.

Re: Table top or gunfighter pro

But pro base, the one with extension does not have the big base-plate, right ? The big base-plate for some reason have been removed from the shops inventory. I got both base plates with my Rev A Gunfighter Pro/KG12. The product description on the new VKB Europe site indicates that this is still tru...

Re: Preferred Cam/Springs for Space sims

I'm using 2×#50 spring and the W cam, for metal Warthog grip on the Gunfighter Pro extension.

I sure would like to be able to get my hands on a revA-compatible MCG Pro to replace the hunk of metal... hopefully the June shipment to the EU store will last more than the 48h the April shipment did.

Re: Is there an extension made for the Gladiator Pro?

They recommend against using an extension with the Gladiator.
Gunfighter has a strengthened gimbal in order to cope with the increased forces of an extension.

So the container bound for North America is stuck in Chinese customs, will probably be released in mid march, arrive in US end march and begin shipping sticks to customers? What about the container bound for Europe? Same problem or is it stuck in EU customs? Any projected timeline as to when the MCG...

Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

TARGET will hide the devices from windows, acting as if they were disconnected.

I would suggest you use vJoy and JoystickGremlin, it does the same functions with devices from any/multiple manufacturers.

Re: Dual sticks + pedals concept advice

Having begun playing Star Citizen after playing Elite Dangerous, I would say that I'm no longer interested in twist on my right hand. With full motion pitch and yaw in Star Citizen, it makes the small range of motion you have with Z-Axis twist very difficult to control. I'm going to have MCG with n...

Re: Who wants an MCG for their Mamba or Gladiator Pro Mk.I?

So the compatibility issue is with the analog ministicks and paddle itself, not your choice of protocol/connector? Or did you still use your proprietary "digital protocol" with the Mamba and Gladiator Pro Mk.I, despite not having analogs on those grips? A Mamba/Gladiator Mk1 version of th...
