Oh man this is awesome news. My VKB Rudder Pedals just showed up and I can't wait to incorporate the Gunfighter into my setup.

Now to ready my wallet for the MCG preorders, haha.

Great news ... but I didn't see a mention of the TMW adapters...

Are the Thrustmaster Warthog adapters also ready for shipping at the same time or are those delayed?

:shock: same here I keep checking my email :lol: being patient is hard :D

edit* 4/30 VKB HQ started shipping Gunfighters on the 25th, and they have about 30% of the orders fulfilled so far; next week, VKB will bulk ship the remaining 70% of orders - so you will get your tracking number some time next week. :)

for those of us that are still waiting, I thought I would share this news that I received today. cheers ! :D

Got mine today. Only minor issue in setup is configuring the dry-clutch properly for a smooth throw. Not doing helis so I know I want it light but there still seems to be a lack of smoothness even when only finger-tightened, not even using the extension tool. Wondering if there is a break-in period for the clutches.

You also might want to loosen the screws at the side of each dry clutch (see red arrows), to reset the dry clutch's center. Loosen them, and then gently re-tighten them to your needs. Hope this helps a little.

Is it possible to get put on the May shipment as a pre-order like the initial batch? I had cancelled my order because I had the TM adapter separate and I was thinking that VKB was going to offer a Modern Grip packaged with a GF base, but it sounds like that's not going to be the case.

Any idea if we'll see the Left-hand grip this year? If so I might just buy two bases this May.

We plan start production of left hand grip after MCG.
