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

Re: Preferred Cam/Springs for Space sims

Don't know if it's something people commonly do, it was just what felt good to me. If it's too soft I have trouble with fine movements overshooting near zero point on axis (such as what's needed for non-gimble space combat) I actually further increased the Y axis to 20+30 because it was a little eas...

Re: Preferred Cam/Springs for Space sims

I think I've finished setting up my GF to my liking. Last night I was finally able to stay on target and pop some pirates in Star Citizen (after a year of hardly being able to dogfight with my X-55). I changed back to #10 cams on both Axes because the detent on #30 was throwing off accuracy. Also ha...

Ah! I see. Never mind then, sounds like it's already been covered... and I did see the disassembly guide today, which means they've been working on the issue.

Had to open MCG to tighten loose screws

Hey VKB, be aware that I noticed the clamp on my MCG Pro (GF Mk1) at the bottom of the grip was wobbly. I felt a rattling as I was reassembling my GF this evening from changing cams. I looked at the picture you have in Announcements with the grip Open and saw what was the issue. The two screws secur...
