Upgrade kit lite for Gladiator non pro

Postby DcTeddy » Tue Sep 10, 2019 3:35

I just purchased a Gladiator Mk2 stick and I've been really enjoying it. However I mainly play Star Citizen with it, so I've been wondering if I could upgrade the stick to a Kosmosima further down the line. From what I could gather, VKB has made an "Upgrade kit lite" for non-pro Gladiator bases, but the product doesn't exist on the european store. Any news on its availability (if at all)?

Neither "exist" in VKB USA or VKB Sim in Aliexpress - a small batch there (for Russian market only) sold out fast.

So :mrgreen:

These are available in the US store but not in the EU store. Why Not?
Why can't I buy from the US store. I don't mind paying the extra postage for such a small parcel.

Because US store have no stock afaik. US people use the US website but the good are shipped from the China? factory, while in the EU they have stock routed by boat and so it take a few weeks longer. IIRC they said they might do some routing by plane if the good are light enough.

To order directly from VKB I think you have to contact :
sales@vkb-sim.pro
VKBDevCfg-C_v0.89.93 / _BlackBox_GF_MCG_PRO_v1_96_A(3)

I went through the motions of ordering on the US store with no indication of being out of stock. I got all the way to putting my address in where the restrictions were US and Canada.
I do have a friend in Canada who is willing to buy for me and post to the UK but if they are not in stock it may be best to order by the direct route as you suggested.

Guys, the next production batch for Gladiator upgrade kits is also intended for EU customers. I don't have any ETA. However, as soon as the new production run is complete and the batch is available for EU, we will request it to be shipped via air so EU customer should not have much of delays compared to the rest of the world. Maybe just few days.

Hello IonSim123,
We are expecting the upgrade kit in stock soon. It is being currently prepared for shipping to EU store via air. I believe that it will be shipped this week and arrive to the store some time next week.
Also, the shipping will include the full range of VKB grips. We do not plan to open pre-ordering.
