Re: VKB Gladiator pro MKI - grip keeps twisting

On all pro Gladiators the lock mechanisam is metal. Like I said Im not the only one with this problem. What is irritating is that vkb stuff arent responding. Once you buy their product, specially if out of warranty, they just dont care...

VKB Gladiator pro MKI - grip keeps twisting

Hi, I would like to know if someone had this problem with his Gladiator pro. Since I migrated from twist stick to Gladiator pro MKI and rudder pedals, sometimes in fearce dogfight I unwittingly twist a grip a bit (I would say I didnt used much force). The grip then twists to the left considerably. I...

Re: Rudder pedals MK IV spring question

AFAIK there is only one avilable from VKB (the default one). But you can always take this one to some local hardware store or toolshop and I think you will find the stiffer one there. There are stores with good stock of the different springs.

Re: Gladiator mk1 conversion

I need the same for my Gladiator pro MK1 but I think there is no 3 to 5 pin adapter and there is no Kosmosima or MCG grips with 5 pin connectors. We are stuck with KG12 grip forever.

Re: Gladiator Pro 5 Pin to 3

There is no 5 to 3 pin adapter. I think VKB gave up on this idea so we are stuck with KG12 grip forever.

Re: When the Twist adapter releases for EU question

Why on earth would anyone want twist adaptor for pro joystick with metal gimbal mechanism and custom grip. "Serious" simmer would buy pedals for rudder and Gunfighter. Otherwise just use regular Gladiator and twist and be happy. Some people don't have full use of their legs. Some people p...

Re: VKB Kosmosima Space Combat Grip Sneak Peek

Ahh, I wont sell my great stick. But my opinion is that those first purchases funded them to make new products later on.

Re: VKB Kosmosima Space Combat Grip Sneak Peek

Gladiator Pro MK1 users are left behind as there is no way we can mount Kosmosima on our base. Im thinking why is that?

Re: Kosmosima Discussion

Kosmosima is a great grip choice for midsized/smallsized fist users as it is consideraly smaller than MCG/pro grip. Something like KG12 but it has more buttons and is "space sim grip".

Re: When the Twist adapter releases for EU question

I finally got my answer. And this could be said in the first post without feeling insulted. There wasnt an intention of any kind to inslut anyone.

Re: News on HOTAS setup??

AFAIK the price would be around 200$ (without VAT (EU) and shipping). Last info is from late summer 2018 (back then they tested the ergonomics). I dont know in which phase the development is now. The throttle will have more than one detent, could be installed by the user, in different positions alon...
