Gladiator non-PRO is now compatible with MCG/MCGPRO

Postby AeroGator » Fri Mar 02, 2018 13:51

We had announced (and reiterated) that the new Modern Combat Grips are only compatible with the PRO version of the Gladiator joystick.
Moreover, Gladiator itself, a robust and versatile budget device, is going to be discontinued.
We leaked some of our plans to launch a new line of budget joysticks...

HOWEVER, we keep receiving letters from Gladiator owners who are asking for ways to fit the MCG on the Gladiator base.

Here is a tiny device that would help Gladiator non-PRO owners to use their base with the newest grips.
The shaft itself, a connecting cable, two pre-installed bearings, and a lock bar.
It will take minutes to replace a plastic shaft with this metal one, reconnect the cable, and voila, you can continue using your Gladiator with a new grip.

WARNING: Please see the picture. MCG is taller than KG12, and if you opt to use it with a twist adapter, it will be yet even taller.
This might change the ergonomics of the joystick considerably, so please bear it in mind.

This is a one time offer; we will once produce a limited number of adapters, and that will be it.
How many will be made depends on how many people contact our dealers.
There will be no pre-orders, rather sort of 'wish list'.
These upgrade kits will be available around mid-April, and will retail for US$ 21 (unshipped).

It will be on sale while the stock lasts. We will not make more sets in future.

OK, so at the moment I have a non-pro basic MkII Gladiator with a KG12 grip.

There is no chance for me to upgrade it and buy a Modern Combat Grip for that base?

Why, there is a chance, sure. We're preparing an adapter that would allow for such modernization/modification. There are some more urgent calls we need to answer first but when we're done with those we will take care of it.
