I got it together, it is pretty easy. The grip rotation ability is quite unique, I don't think I've ever seen another joystick with this ability.

That grip rotation should be listed as a feature!
I couldn't find any other flight stick allowing such a configuration either.
I really like the russian center stick ergonomics and I think the BM MkIII is a great tool to experience how those aircraft controls were designed.

Now that is cool. Will that feature be available on the gimbal upgrade?

Here is a video demonstrating how to remove and change the springs and the cams. Please watch and familiarize yourself with the process before you start. Once you see the parts up close after watching the video it becomes quite clear what to do.

BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO LOSE ANY SCREWS OR WASHERS. SOME ARE SMALL AND EASILY LOST.

Good to see that VKB finally has a dedicated channel.

Regarding the screws/washers. Will it be possible to purchase replacements? Or even better can you compile a list of the size/types of the screws and washers involved so that we can source our own replacements if needs be?

I was wondering if anyone knew how many spare springs usually come in the plastic bag?

1) Small force. The diameter of the wire 0,8mm - 3 pcs
2) Medium force. The diameter of the wire 1,00 mm (11 turns) - 1 pcs. Two pieces are already installed in gimbal.
3) Big force. The diameter of the wire 1,00 mm (10 turns) - 3 pcs.
Included in the one spring more - it is a spare part.

Bonus points for anyone that can tell me what parts to use with the warthog grip :D
I assume the 30 cams by process of elimination. Its pretty floppy with that heavy stick I guess ill need the heaviest springs too?

Edit: Or ya know... the cam with a W on it :oops:
I am assuming its for the front to back centering.

The cam with the W is for the front to back centering, yes. I am using the 10 cam for the other axis right now and it works fine with the Mamba and a heavy spring. The 10 cams I believe are the ones which do not give a strong center feeling while the 30 cams do. I like the feel of the 10 but will try the 30 tonight for comparison.

I am going to try the R/L 10 Cam with the F/B W Cam for my Warthog grip.
Will try changing to the darker springs for a little extra resistance.

So, can someone help a brother out with the Front/Back Cam screw/washer lockout order rofl.... I dropped it and forgot how they went ><
I have it bolthead->Cam->washer->locknut->innermounting-ballbearing->nut

I'm looking for a little clarification on the springs that came with the Gladiator Pro.

UIV posted earlier about 3 sets, which I assume are white, yellow, and blue, in that order from least to most resistance. I'm not sure about the green set. Based on Azurith's comment, is it between yellow and blue?
