Not everyone is ready to pay about $1,000 for this.

In regards to the winwing setup - Between the horrible ergonomics, bad design, and lack of features, the parts actually look reasonable quality but yeah …. there is no way I'd spend almost 1k on this and get no pedals to boot. For me right now I am awaiting the VKB throttle because I would be settling to go with anything else. The virpil route has been tempting a couple times as the wait grew long but I know in the long run I would be sorely missing the features of the TECS over whatever I had settled on.

I assume that full setup of TECS will be easly 500€ and adding 410€ for Gunfighter MCG pro (I went for full option) so after adding those together will be ca.1000€.

BTW could we have a render with ENG switch descriptions so non russian speaking future customers know what we will be able to assign?

If VKB give a date and it's wrong due to unforseen dependanices, you will all be angry and then this is what VKB do not want to do.
it's sometimes better not to provide a time until it's time to provide one :)
please don't assume that every company operates or markets the same, the Amazon era has confused many of you into believing this is what every company should do.

let's all agree that when VKB are ready to release a date, it's a date worth looking forward to.
let's also have fun discussing cool things of what may or may not make it in the final design, as this is always fun to talk about.
let's not coerce (is the practice of forcing another party to act in an involuntary manner by use of threats or force) VKB with words like this:
"I will start to think that I will be bound to look to other company"
or
"customers tend to buy from competitors"
as VKB do not demand you to do anything you don't want to do.

Pretty sure they gave an estimated(ish) price in the OP but you assume away big guy.

Estimated price was about $200, IIRC. But that is for the Throttle alone. If you add the button and switch boxes, I am sure it adds up. Cool thing though is the modular design of the TECS. Everyone can buy exactly what he/she wants and needs.

From the first page :

We estimate the price range for the main TECS base somewhere about US$ 200, and the extension panels – about 40 galactic credits.


Now the real question is what is the exchange rate for galactic credit :?:

Joke aside, I am very happy with my GF+MCG. I love how the throttle looks and want to wait for it. I already have so much other things I want to buy. Just upgraded almost everything in my PC, wanna buy a valve index,.. . I can keep busy with other stuff as long as it takes :D

Hopefully there will be some news before the end of the year. At least a year / quarter when to expect it.
Unlike sticks, throttle units tend to last much longer, or at least that was my experience. My current unit is slowly dying, and I would really want to buy VKB throttle. Hope TECS comes before my unit is completely dead, otherwise I will have to get something else :( And that something else will probably last for another 5+ years.

Definitely be nice if they put one out sooner than later.

x56 throttle failed on me last night. On my second one now.
