Re: VKB Kosmosima Space Combat Grip Sneak Peek

Indeed. They're great as an extra set of axes (in my case vertical movement). It's neat to see the SCG but I will still be holding my breath for a left handed MCG. There appears to be more features on the MCG than on the SCG and for HOSAS that's what counts from my perspective. The SCG would make mo...

Sorry mate, forgot to check back to see what you responded. When I was playing E:D I was using X-55

Groovy, thanks for sharing the news. When I get back into flying again, I'll see about looking you up

Re: Left Hand Grip

Although on the contrary other companies like Thrustmaster doesn't even announce their products at all. Yes, this exactly. Different business model. They're taking ages to develop new products as well (most likely anyway) but the consumer doesn't know until they've got a production ready model. Whe...

Re: Elite Dangerous

I haven't played E:D since getting my Gunfighter last year but I have put 800+ hours into the game, the majority of which was using a HOTAS. One thing that finally turned me off of E:D was the nerf to yaw and my setup as it is now, works with pitch and yaw being mostly equal (Star Citizen) When I wa...

Re: T Rudder output at axis extreme

I'm no expert, but I am a Star Citizen pilot. What you're experiencing sounds like a limitation inside the game. If you download and open VKBJoytester, you'll see that the pedals are constantly sending information to the computer depending on what location it's at (centered vs stepped on) so it's li...

Re: MCG loose base

I used locktite on mine because I have no intention of installing twist adapter on my right grip. The locktite, while holding the threads tight, may make it... very difficult to remove again

Re: Twist Adapter ETA?

what does that mean ? how about a yes or no, instead of some random sentiment. They gave us a definite ETA on the MCG last year, and it was actually released 2 or 3 months after that. From my perspective, it appears they find it more prudent to give us a time range estimate than an exact date that ...

Re: Changing LVLNG button to black color

I was just about to ask about this myself. I'm not able to tell how to access this button after I've opened the grip. Are there more screws that need to take out before the front panel comes off... or is it just slid into place? I'm also paranoid about pulling wires or damaging green chips, so a bri...

Re: Had to open MCG to tighten loose screws

I'm actually not planning on putting twist in my grip, so I put a small speck of locktite on the threads of the two screws holding the mounting point into the grip. I've had no loosening issues since and have used it a fair amount by this point.

Re: Rudder Pedals.

I can tell, with my cheap TM pedals that use whole leg movement, the T-Rudder pedals will be much more ergonomic when I can afford to get a set. At the moment, after flying for an hour or two with my current pedals, my knees ache because the setup isn't ideal.

Nice! I like how clean it is. How is that seat for sitting several hours? I would need a back rest
