The throttle and all its modules will come with their own mounting plates for the UCM system.

Let me rephrase that: the moment when the throttle and its modules will show up in stores their mounting plates would show up in stores too. Better now? :)
But nevertheless, you could get the UCM now and order the plate separately.

YUP! This formulation is better :wink: But buying separately is probably a little more expensive, so I prefer to wait :wink:

But in relation to this, it would not be entirely unimportant for me to know how long we have to wait for the TECS. Of course you cannot or are not allowed to give an exact date here. I am very well aware of that. However, it would be extremely helpful to know if I could get the MCG Ultimate first because it will take several months anyway. Or is it worth waiting for the TECS after all, because it won't be long? To understand: I have saved up total x to be prepared. However, for me it means "either or" because I cannot afford both at once. So ... what makes the most sense in my case? Is it worth waiting a little longer, or is it better to buy the MCG Ultimate as soon as it becomes available?

I don't even have an answer to the 'when' question, but I could only tell you what I would do, I would get whatever I can first because life is short :). And shaking off all my biasness, putting the civil clothes on and becoming the child looking through the store window, I can promise you won't be disappointed for getting the Ultimate, even if that would mean waiting a bit more for the TECS, because it feels so good!

It is so mean to say that...
What about all us peasants who have to make due with a "plastic" MCG pro..... :wink:

By absolutely no means I'm mocking anyone or try to push them to spend more. MCG is still a great grip; the Ultimate is just a more expensive upgrade and it's normal to p̶e̶r̶f̶o̶r̶m̶ feel better.

I'm so excited about the Ultimate edition :twisted: At the moment I use the Ultimate MCG grip and it is a beautiful gadget, I hope TECS ultimate will be great too, I'm waiting, waiting, waiting... 8)

No preorder, but there will be plenty of product on shelves.

Unfortunately, my question has not yet been answered. Will the TECS be available to order everywhere at the same time?

Given the balls up UPS have made of UK orders recently, I reckon you might be welcoming of a little delay to allow them to reload from tape the tracking software on their ZX Spectrums UPS are obviously using! :lol:

Seriously though, I wonder if Eduard will put the China express option back up on the site for TECS? Otherwise it'll be the slow boat from China and you know that can take some time. :wink:

I think preorder management is a lot of work for a small company, so I can understand you not running one. I hope you have a lot of very big shelves as the interest appears to be huge. I'm seeing posts about the TECS on many flight sim forums where VKB would rarely rate a mention. I wonder if VKB should run a poll, shared on the popular forums to measure the number of interested buyers in each TEWS version. I'm committed to buying the ARC PREMIUM as long as I can get my hands on it. Nothing else interests me so I will continue to "suffer" with my trusty X52 throttle. I wish you well in the TEWS to market.

Ok let s hope you have the same meaning of PLENTY like me :-) worst case would be . TECS available, but hu hu.. only for SOME. A list with all INTERESTED people would already help ? Excel Excel ;-) no need for prepay, but Maybe a better handling of wishes than AMD and nvidia is showing ? ;-) So let s wait and hope the best
