Shrink Sleeve on Trigger Spring

Postby ddrake1984 » Thu Sep 19, 2019 12:52

Hi VKB

I saw a good design to help improve the twangs/noises on compression springs would be to add a piece of heatshrink over the spring.

would you consider this for your next version grips primary/secondary fire trigger springs?

You mean that 1/2 or 1/3 of the spring is covered with the heat sleeve and then heated to effectively "split" the spring to two?

I have seen those same designs, and planned first to do that to mine, but the flip trigger doesn't generate such a noise or feel when flying in VR that it would matter really. It is only a "problem" for some who fly with TrackIR and has their head near the trigger or just test the trigger in noiseless room and start to get annoyed about small negligent details.

I hate the sound of the primary trigger and avoid using it wherever possible. I’m also not so keen on the feel of it.

The flip up trigger is perfect.

Could you clarify what kind of grip we are talking about? Or about everyone?

They mean MCG Pro, obviously.

On SCG, I managed to almost completely remove the sound of pressing the main trigger.
And significantly reduce the sound of the red button.
I have not tried it with MCG yet, but I think it should work out the same way.
