Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

thanks for the heads up, typical of my luck it went live for preorders a day or two after I ordered from the global store. Considered cancelling but price is technically cheaper and doesn't come to much more if I get fees on top and I get it earlier by around a month so no big deal, plus DHL deliver...

Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

any info on the preorder status? I saw the previous update but presume tests didn't go as planned because few days later there is no option that I can see. I know stuff happens that is out of folks control but ask because I'm having to check the forum & store obsessively and if preordering can't...

Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

Thanks for the reply it is appreciated, genuinely so. Like I say not having a go at you and miscommunications or changes at all point of the chain will happen so I get you can't give concrete dates but as a company it seems EU market lags behind a lot, perhaps we are significantly smaller than Asia,...

Re: Gunfighter MCG is on the way to EU

No offence but this is goal post moving. I originally mentioned I was considering USA order only to be told with confidence to wait for Jan '18 so I did, then that gets delayed but hey these thigns happen. Wish I'd ordered parts or whole stick via USA now and sadly my confidence in EU store is not p...

Re: Anyway to replace GF mk1 with mk2

Same here, especially with the availability on regular stock items and Euro delays, it'd be much much easier being able to order none specialist items in future and just get the regular run item. Even without a ready made adapter I'd be willing to DIY the change myself just for the future proof and ...

Re: Gunfighter and MCG - More EU Stock?

as well as stock info I wouldn't mind knowing if there is any info on parts to turn rev.A to rev.B with regard to the connector, not worried about dry clutch access change or any other differences aside from connection. I don't mind soldering and modding and have workshop access, I just need the con...

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...
