F14 - RESERVATIONS OPEN GLOBALLY

This.
F-14. The Grip.
Not a rendered image.
Real physical thing.
---
Reservations open now.
In order to produce sufficient units we need to estimate the demand first, so we are inviting you to use Get Notified function on our regional dealer's web pages. Please visit your store and reserve your device! There's no need to pre-pay for it, only to sign up.
First to get the new F-14 grip will be the pilots who already have a GunFighter base, so the first batch released to the market will be "grip only". The full joystick setup (grip and base) will follow.
---
Remember: if you had already bought a Heatblur F-14 module from Heatblur or DCS web stores, you will have a 10% discount at checkout when it comes to actually paying for the grip. If you are buying the grip first, you will get $10 off at Heatblur's own shop.
Attention EU Pilots knowing unavoidable delays due to sea freight vs air mail, our EU dealer offers a premium extra option: 10 euro on the top of the price will bring you the grip by air. No delay, you will get the grip immediately as soon as it is out. Please note, this is merely the cost of express delivery; the grip still costs the same.
---
VKB is proudly presenting their latest master piece: the F-14 grip, the most complex grip from our line and the most technologically advanced.
We are happy to fly together and share the satisfaction!

I'm interested in both the grip and base. Do I need to let the European dealer know now for the complete setup or at a later date?

Talking to a dealer will never hurt.
Still, pretty soon the next batches will follow with base as option.

Hi

1) How does the "DLC (Direct Lift Control) maneuver wheel" work ? Is it a self centering axis ( goes back to zero after being released ) ?
2) About the "Long travel, soft-click buttons" does this mean they will have a more "thrustmaster warthog" ( long travel AND some force actually needed to acuate a button ) feel instead of the immediate click the MCG and SCG buttons have ?

I could not find where to do this. Can you (or anyone?) provide a link? I really really don't want to miss out on this.

I would be ordering from the US.

What if I am interested in the F-14 grip and the Gunfighter Mk.III base? (ie: the Gunfighter Mk.III 'F-14 Combat Edition'? I can't see a 'get notified' button there.

Thanks! I hope that still counts as showing interest in the product for anticipated numbers :-)
