Re: Gladiator MKII total confusion

Re: Gladiator MKII total confusion

Hello , I got this flight system today Just curious - what prompted you to install firmware on a new product that ships with a working, good firmware version from the factory? There's usually no need to flash a brand new device that's working out of the box as it should. Firmware should only be upd...

Re: Y axis dampening

Generally it looks like the dry clutch is still holding the Y axis cam somehow, but I double and triple checked - the nut is completely unscrewed; it's head is sticking almost above the plate. You have to likely loosen additional screws as well; give it a go: https://i.imgur.com/pWp1ekz.png Source-...

Re: Unveiling the VKB TECS Throttle Control System

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...
