Strange stiction on GF gimbal, busted bearings?

Hello, I have a GF (mk2) base that I haven't used in a while. I just received my new space cams and as I was switching cams i came upon a strange error. When moving the gimbal, without cams, springs or nylon dampeners it sticks in the middle of travel. There's a lot of stick on the Y-axis a very sma...

Re: Kosmosima Discussion

I really like how the kosmosima sits in my hand and most of the buttons are very good and easy to reach. The extra dual action trigger on the premium is a fantastic addition. I have two main issues with the comfort and that is that the pinky switch gets very hard to actuate when you have the largest...

Re: Kosmosima Discussion

I'm just going to chip in here regarding the 2D deadzone that ddrake and the firmware guy Alex have implemented. I hope it will get into the official firmware if it isn't already. Regular deadzones on axis separated sticks like VKBs are always fixed at a certain percentage around the center of that ...

Re: Twist Adapter ETA?

Could we please just get some info about what's going on with the twist? I mean ppl at VKB said "realistically... mid-May" and we are pretty far off from that estimate. Are they even in production? Did you cancel them or put them on the back-burner or something? These estimates are closing...

Re: VKB Kosmosima Space Combat Grip Sneak Peek

May be encoder? Similar to mouse scroll. Slider = linear potentiometer ->friction-> wear. I don't know if it's practically possible but there are contactless systems for sliders, either magnetic or optical. You could basically take a mouse sensor and just have a flat surface on the underside of the...

Re: Update on twist grip?

I used to have some miniscule amount of hope that we could possibly get some twists before summer but now I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get them until november or something. It really sucks since my current setup needs a twist to work and having to work around that is clunky and unintuitive fo...

But if there's, I would experiment with either a small trackpoint like we see on Lenovo keyboard or a small Track Ball.

I would rather have a slider for non-precision throttle control.

Re: Update on twist grip?

Last I heard the claim is that the twist is being held up due to patent registrations or similar paperwork. Although that seems a bit flimsy since there are several mitigations for this like "patent pending" and similar.

Re: Any updates on MCG Pro Z-Aaxis adapter OR the left handed variant of the stick?

So.

We're well past mid-may. Do we have any update? My gaming rig is screaming for a twist attachement more or less daily since I got my MCG.

Re: Brake Lever wobble

Doesn't seem normal to me. I just got my MCG Pro and there is no wobble.

Re: Pre-Order for MCG?

I use https://visualping.io to keep tabs on updated sites. I use the paid version as I have a list of about 10 different sites but both the free and the paid works really well.

Re: Twist compatibility and advice

Thank you for your response. I think I understand more about how to proceed now.

I guess the only thing left to do is wait for pre-orders to open here in Europe.

Twist compatibility and advice

I have a rev.A Gunfighter pro and my plan is to at some point have two gunfighters with MCG and a twist on the right stick. Now this is where it gets confusing. As far as I understand if i keep buying stuff as it's released ⋅ MCG rev A ⋅ twist (rev A?) ⋅ Gunfighter base...

Re: Gun fighter/VKB noob question!

These are enthusiast grade kits. You really can't expect it to be plug n play.

As far as I know you can connect both to the stick box or use the boxes separately. It depends if you want the devices to be shown as one or two devices in windows.
