Perhaps you confused it with Virpil's spacesim grip, the Constellation Delta?


Yes, you're probably right, that does have the scroll wheel. And on the SCG promo pics there's just a little shadow under the last mini-stick giving it a look of a wheel, but upon closer inspection, it's just a mold feature

ohhh yeahh, that's where the LEDs are. Yeah, they're probably used as mode switch indicators and not for decoration since they're that small. If they were just for looks they'd be big and all over. The description says programmable, so there's probably going to be a feature to turn on the LED when this button is pressed or that button, etc.

Also, can VKB upload an image of the Kosmosima with LED illuminated? I see they come with Red/RGB LED's and I'm wondering where the light is.

Whats the RED ONLY Led for?

Really liking the RGB Led. Looks cool and since others are mentioning it can be bound to some function, that's pretty sweet.

Frankly not a fan of the competition's implementation.

On example - "Power On" function. Or indicating mode (analog or digital) of ministick.

Hey VKB,

Firstly, congratulations on releasing the Kosmosima! First impressions it looks like an AWESOME product!!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do another batch of Gladiator Upgrade Kit Lites so that us Gladiator MK2 (non pro) owners can purchase this grip!!! For years I have been wanting a good-quality left-handed grip with twist axis and unfortunately the Gunfighter is not suitable because I have grown accustomed to the extra axis offered on the Gladiator MK2 base which I use for speed brakes on PMDG, FSLabs etc.

Also do we have the overall product dimensions? - just want to get an idea of how it compares size wise with the default Gladiator MK2 (non pro) grip.

Thanks very much :)

Very nice grip, the led is a good indicator for the mode (i miss it on my MCG pro).
I know your distributors are all individual companies put maybe can you help us a little over in europe, Flightsim (Eduard) sell only the grips w/o the base maybe you can hint him about that circumstance. Btw Happy new year and thanks for all the work

Hi

Where do you see that ? I only see kosmosima as grip in the shop and not as complete controller ( grip + base ) :?.

Right there with you on this, excitement, hopes, and all... though I don't know that they ever released the Gladiator Upgrade Kit Lite in the first place. I check regularly, and have never seen any available for order on VKB North America....
I hope they make the option to buy the Kosmosima with the Gladiator Upgrade Kit Lite as they were going to offer for the MCG....

There should be someway for these bases to support the new sticks.
Maybe an adapter of some sort.

In controller, where you order whole set. Choose kosmosima from same list where are kg12 and mcg.

@ Macross
Thank you, I realised that just after posting :oops:, but my first comment in this forum had to be validated by a moderator before actually appearing.
