Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

Graysson yeah I'm one of them so feel similar to you since I mainly fly modern stuff in DCS in VR so missing the extra controls on my hotas hurts a lot. I bought at the time when MCG was estimated for October iirc but I knew it wouldn't be a surprise if the date moved and that these things happen an...

Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

@Nyth apologies for the offensiveness, I read it wrong as I commonly do with text admittedly since so much is hard to read without face to face and I admit I come across much harsher than intend via text only comms a lot of the time (although in fairness I am pretty low in agreeableness which serves...

Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

I suspect the problem is they are small staff levels and many people do mixed roles. I get the impression some of the PR and community manager stuff is done by folks from the hardware side who are responsible for engineering and production as primary role. Also maybe some don't balance it so well so...

Re: Anyway to replace GF mk1 with mk2

There is a positive aspect in delays. Yes, VKB is a small company but agile. We produce in small batches but immediately implement any improvement in the assembly technics, materials, components etc to improve the new product. So, getting the product from the second or the third batch could be bene...

Re: Anyway to replace GF mk1 with mk2

Not necessarily inferior from a customer PoV. It could well be a production line thing where it is inferior in the manufacturing stage. For customers it is the same connector but reversed so it makes no difference. If the stick is seated right and you've tightened the bolts properly there will be no...

Re: Anyway to replace GF mk1 with mk2

Mine has never lost contact and I've always found the quality excellent. I don't mean it as throwing shade, just points to be brought up that are worth considering. The reason I am considering the swap is not because I don't think VKB will cater to that model (proven track record of doing the opposi...

Re: Anyway to replace GF mk1 with mk2

similar sentiment here, I'd even be up for a converter kit that required soldering on my part if it means I wait less and the connector type is finally standardised now (so will be future proof). Slight sour taste that such a big change that affects longevity and resale etc was made in same product ...

Re: Price of VKB Gunfighter MK II + MCG Pro in Europe

Personally I'd wait as we're nearly there but obviously it is your choice. I get it can be frustrating and I myself spent year or two waiting to get a new VKB stick; I found Europe has always been poorly served (original came via eastern Europe) and cobra upgrades never seemed available here wheneve...

Re: Pre-Order for MCG?

Do you have a link to ordering direct from China? I'm half sorry I didn't preorder from the NA site since fees wise the Euro store will have the same added on and don't mind dealing with fees myself since do that a lot anyway. Secondly I know of a few on other forums who feel the same way as you gra...

Re: Questions and answers

thanks Eduard for the heads up on the possibly moving to March. TBH I don't mind waiting as long as they come to Europe eventually I can wait as long as it takes and plan to preorder as soon as available regardless of shipping time. Sooner is better than later of course and prefered but is not a dea...

Re: Questions and answers

Hi thanks for the replies, guess we'll just have to wait longer but that is usually the way and prob worth it to save the hassle of import. I do order a lot of stuff (oft large heavy stuff) from the US and Canada on a regular basis and it usually goes smooth but it will only save me 4 weeks average ...

Re: Questions and answers

Is there any news on when Euro preorders for MCG pro will start? I emailed Eduard September 19th but still no reply thus asking here. I understand it is hard to know concrete dates but just a rough idea would be helpful as don't want to miss out. I tend to follow the news from the NA side as that se...

Re: Gun fighter/VKB noob question!

There is no out the box that is perfect as it depends on what you fly and your style too. What do you mainly play? The hard part is it is designed with stick adapts to your way rather than you adapt to the sticks way. With that flexibility comes effort and more thought of what you want rather than w...

Re: Thank you

I ordered around 23rd May (this was before shipping was due to initially start but I'd waited for GF to drop in Europe thus was waiting to order early as I missed out waiting on previous models the other year). I got notification on 27th June and recieved around 30th June. I don't recall having tran...
