Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

Here's another tidbit shared originally in the Russian IL-2 forums; still 3D printed for research and development, but a nice look at the envisioned detent solution and palm-release-plates to lift the throttle grips over these detents (yes, I say detents as there can be more than one detent installe...

Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

Some of you might have seen this on the Russian IL-2 forums, but here it is as well for you to see in our VKB forum thread here: a very rough first 'ergonomics test' of the 3D printed TECS throttle handle (printed in one chunk for testing; the real deal will of course be the split throttle setup). A...

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 re...

Poll over on the DCS forum

Hi guys, Eagle Dynamics, maker of DCS (Digital Combat Simulator), are inquiring about the popularity of the different controller brands use in DCS to hopefully support the more popular ones with DCS default profiles, so make you voice heard. VKB is represented via the MCG and KG12 grips. Would be ni...

UIV, VKB owner and chief engineer, has dropped a little sneak peek on another forum, and since it's out in the open now, here's a couple of teaser images of the VKB Kosmosima SCG (Space Combat Grip). Of course, it's also very much usable in DCS or IL-2 or other sims. Please be aware that this is not...

Re: Disable Blackbox when no Stick Connected

You should be able to disable all axes within VKBdevCfg and save that as a profile then. I've done something very similar when using my old Mamba Mk.III base for its rotaries, without a grip attached. Maybe that would work for you?

Re: Non-compatible profile

Whenever you change out a grip, you need to flash the Gunfighter's BlackBox to support that grip, else the software "thinks" the swapped out grip is still installed. However, have you tried to reset the BlackBox to default? From the Tools tab click "Default", and the BlackBox wil...

Re: Twist Adapter ETA?

The twist adapter should be available for both the MCG and MCG PRO, as both are "twist ready".

The twist adapter will be sold as a stand-alone accessory, so you can always install the twist adapter later, regardless of what Gunfighter you're going with.
