Re: Gunfighter Mk.II with KG12 grip availability?

The end of Gladiator production (announced in flightsimcontrols.com) don't implicate that no more KG-12A grips will be available for Gunfighter?

Then your option is look at MFG, BRD or Slaw pedals. :)

In the past VKB make similar pedals, maybe in future make then again.

Re: Gunfighter Mk.I (premiere model) + MCG Pro + T-Rudder Mk.IV + Virtual Toe Brakes on one BlackBox

I think in DCS P-51 by default, the break lever will brake both wheels with the same pressure (no differential braeking). You are right, in DCSW this MCG brake lever if assigned for "Wheel Brakes" will work for Spitfire, La-39, Mi5-15/21... But for P-51, Bf 109, Fw 190 and others, the bra...

Re: Grip pinouts

I don't know nothing about codes - just that VKB use proprietary codes. :mrgreen: Look, for DIY (almost) nothing is impossible, but to make a VKB MCG grip work with other joys electronics or Arduino you will need replace their interior electronics and proprietary MaRS sensors. In the end you will us...
