Re: CAM #10 too tight, does exist a CAM #5?

If you find the resistance too tight than use a weaker spring strength. #10 is the lowest. If you are referring to the way the force is very light at the center and very strong at the ends, that is just the way they designed it (so you can make very light corrections in the center). I only know of 3...

Re: Using #50 springs with Gladiator Pro and MCG

ok, that's the information I was looking for. I'm more worried about the base than the stick as it's the base that has to deal with the highest forces. I've only taken the metal plate off twice (first cam change and to tape wires that were rubbing/vibrating) and one of the four screws holes is alrea...

Re: Using #50 springs with Gladiator Pro and MCG

Bump.

I'm assuming by the silence that there is no problem or risk using the #50 springs with the Gladiator Pro. I guess I'll find out eventually.

Re: Future of "vintage" products

They were supposed to have more with the new MCG but they said the factory wasn't going to be able to meet the original date for manufacturing. I don't know how many they plan to produce, but I think they are trying to build up sufficient stock so that people can just order stuff normally without pr...

Using #50 springs with Gladiator Pro and MCG

I am currently using #20 spring on the roll axis and #40 on pitch with the KG12 grip. I find the pitch just perfect as it is. I have ordered an MCG and noticed that it will be a little taller, probably holding it one or two inches higher up. I'm thinking that this will result in the #40 spring feeli...

Re: Gladiator twist axis not recognized in World of Warplanes

Was just breaking in my stick on an 80 player server, so I guess it's still going. There was no hud and complex engine controls were forced on though. I was playing Stalingrad.

Re: Gladiator MKII mode button not working.

It looks like the A1 through C3 buttons weren't assigned alternate values for the different modes. I'm not sure why loading a different profile did fix this though.. maybe because some of the registry blocks were set to No Function and the other profiles couldn't update them? :?: I have the Pro and...

Re: C-Clip cut loose? Where does it go ? (Gladiator MkII)

I wouldn't really know but judging by the pictures it might be on the wrong side. Looks to me like it is supposed to be against the plastic towards the center, your arrow suggests it is installed against the outside. Maybe I'm just not seeing it right.

Re: Gladiator twist axis not recognized in World of Warplanes

Glad it is not a problem with the stick. For WWII sims you can try Warthunder. Personally I'm not a huge fan but maybe you'd like it. Multiplayer seems to be mostly the arcade mode and is dominated by mouse users which makes it really hard with a joystick since they can shoot anywhere instantly. Als...

Re: Gladiator twist axis not recognized in World of Warplanes

I'm sorry but I don't exactly understand. Do you mean you used Windows calibration? You're not supposed to do that, I don't know what the consequences are. And you see the problem in the Wizzo program, but did you do the calibration (in Wizzo) first?

Re: Gladiator twist axis not recognized in World of Warplanes

Can't help you much with your problem, but this is the general discussion section. Technical support would be in said section.

Does the axis read properly in Wizzo? Have you done the calibration? Does it show 0 to 65whatever00000 when moving left and right?

Re: Gladiator Mk2 (not pro) and MCG

I'm 80% sure the Gladiator pro will be compatible with the twist adapter. The Gunfighter base is mostly intended to be used with an extension (hence no buttons on base), more commonly used in home cockpits and with a center stick position. I'm sure the majority of space simmers (the group the twist ...

Re: Three Axis Throttle ***Concept***

I've seen that grip before and while it's an amazing achievement, to me it looks horrible to use. 1) All the axes are tied together. Terrible accuracy is the result. 2) You cannot rest your hand on it at all without causing unwanted input. 3) You would have to constantly hold a precise position to m...

Re: Three Axis Throttle ***Concept***

You've got some mad DIY skills man! But at the end of the day, what you had was still a normal HOSAS only that you rotated your hand. 1) You mentioned for one that you had difficulty keeping lateral trust centered when adjusting throttle position due to the axes being connected, which would not be a...

Three Axis Throttle ***Concept***

I know there is an intention to develop a modular throttle, hopefully including a space sim variant. I was brainstorming how you could design a throttle grip that would be suitable for what's involved in the control of 3 axes of movement (plus 3 of rotation for 6 total) and wanted to share a concept...
