Re: Gunfighter 3 - Space Combat - Premium Grip

When it comes to joystick returning to center there are 4 factors to be considered: 1. Cams - there are soft cams and hard cams. For a precise return to center hard cams are recommended; 2. Springs - there are 5 sets of springs and each cam could load 2 springs; this means a lot of combinations. For...

Re: Kosmosima Gladiator K issues

It’s not a defect, just that the second grip is an upgraded version with some improvements over the previous models. Red LED flashing means most probably that there’s no contact between grip and base. Take the grip out and install it properly following this guide . Press down on the grip gently when...

Re: Question on default Profile (Gladiator K) Why buttons instead of hats?

So now you know :))) Thing is there are still lots of modern games that won't recognize more than 1 or 2 HATs or more than 32 buttons on a joystick.
The firmware is coming barebone by default so could fit in most games.

Re: Yaw not centering fully

As you can see the dust cover butts right up against the underside of the stick. Push the dust cover down the metal stem until it passes the fat part. You could have the dust cover bracing the fat part or underneath, with the lips facing up or down. Maybe lifting up Grip just a little? The Contacts...

Re: Gunfighter 3 - Space Combat - Premium Grip

Please check this guide to see how to change cams and springs, adjust dampers and install the grip properly. Don't worry about grease at this point, everything is good as it is at least until you'll get comfortable with your device. There are 4 sets of cams: Space-S(oft) and Space-H(ard), a more lin...

Re: Yaw not centering fully

Well, the dust cover is not supposed to touch the grip; obviously it'll put up some resistance.
Your reply shows that you haven't even watched the link I posted. I'm not sure what you're looking for.

Re: Yaw not centering fully

Should've mentioned what grip you have. In case you have a Kosmosima then release the tension in the locking mechanism screw. If you tighten that screw too much it might affect twisting.

Re: Gladiator K availability (USA)

Shipping is totally out of VKB's control unfortunately. The current courier has been selected for best price/speed ratio.
And no coupons :)

Re: Gladiator K availability (USA)

Shipping will be calculated at checkout and is usually fast, same as delivery time which should be in less than a week.
Any VKB joystick would be perfectly compatible with the MSFS.

Re: Gladiator K availability (USA)

That's right, VKBControllers is the authorized dealer for North America. About the restock... I can only ask to have some patience and come back here about a week before MSFS launches, you won't be disappointed :)

Re: Gladiator K tension adjustment

For GA and planes in general I strongly recommend Nyogel 767A, can't go any better than that. Also, you said your twisting is rough - are you sure the locking cylinders are all the way in? Because if they stick out a bit they grind against the outer cover. If they're in then try to release a bit the...

Re: Gladiator K calibration

LEDs are flashing if the calibration was unsuccessful. Make sure you'll include all the axis in the calibration: pitch, roll, twist, mini-throttle and the ministick (if you have the Premium version). Here's the guide about calibrating the device. The Mode button is programmed as a regular button on ...

Re: Gladiator K tension adjustment

Once I open the G/K up, I will investigate the spring. Guys, let's get clear - I though we're talking about the spring on the twisting module on the Kosmosima, not about the springs inside the Gladiator base - these springs could not get replaced with anything shorter or harder, otherwise the gimba...
