Re: Throttle Design Considerations

Oh man, that front render gives me so much hope. That POV hat looks like it might actually be an analog input. Also, those paddles are definitely not a palm rest, which I was thinking the rear pads might have been. It looks like the pads on the front and back of the grip may be connected as one tilt...

Re: Throttle Design Considerations

Also, I keep hearing people talk about the modularity of the TECS but I think the message may be getting confused. I keep hearing rumors about how the grips on the TECS throttle may be modular, but I haven't seen any official statements that support that. But the throttle is designed for modularity ...

Re: Throttle Design Considerations

Someone posted an older render of the front side of the TECS throttle grip that showed the right half of the throttle having one button and one hat . (But the side had one less button than the new render, so that's no guarantee.) But if it is still there, and if that one hat was analog-capable, wou...

Re: MCG Pro (Standalone)

According to rrhode, my order is still in "Processing" because it hasn't shipped yet. The next batch is expected to ship Jan 3-4, so I guess I'll see more then.

Re: Throttle Design Considerations

I respect the design is intended for flight sims first. I would only suggest, as you pointed out, functional improvements that might facilitate both space simmers and flight sims together. The MCG Pro grip is like a dream come true in this regard. Dual analog sticks on top, one with a Master Mode wi...

Re: MCG Pro (Standalone)

My payment processed on the 26th for a Gunfighter Pro extension bundle, but I haven't seen any shipment emails yet either. I'm hoping it comes in tomorrow though, or I'll start bugging customer support to give me tracking info. But my order on the NA vkbcontrollers website still says "Processin...

Re: Throttle Design Considerations

I hope so. I'm going to lobby hard for some kind of paddle-axis for forward/reverse thrust in addition to the thumbstick on the grip. Cant really see much of the front of the TECS grip, but it looks like a analog "wheel" or maybe a mousewheel is up there. That would be useful for some thin...

Re: Throttle Design Considerations

I woke up this morning and had to smirk at it myself. As usual, my timing is perfectly irrelevant.

Re: Throttle Design Considerations

I currently use a CH Pro Throttle, which I think is generally great except for: - It has a very basic, boring styling. All black plastic over simple forms and grey buttons. Functional, but not exactly sexy. - All three axis (z-throttle, x/y thumbstick) are based on pots and there is a LOT of jitter,...
