Hello guys,

1.Just got the vkb gladiator for Christmas and I was wondering if there will be an upgrade pack to change the plastic gimbal with a metal one.

2. Where can you get a metal trigger for the grip? Does it only come with the rudders?

3. Is there a throttle quadrant in development for it?

Regards and merry Christmas!

1., is the VKB grip adaptor for Gladiator Pro (for compatibility with TM Warthog grip), that's up for sale right now at FSC, also compatible with the upcoming Gunfighter (Pro), or will the latter need it's own adaptor?

2., i plan to order a gunfighter pro, once it's available for preorder. Will i be able to remove the extension, and just turn the pro into a standard gunfighter? Can you elaborate on what's the difference between the two version other than the extension and the base-plate?

3., will it be possible to order a table-top base plate separately, in order to turn the pro into a standard gunfighter, if needed?


thx

Think this Gunfighter base picture answer the question:

Notice the 3 pin connector in pole, different from PS2 connector used in Warthog base.

Hello

I am new to the forum. I own a Defender Cobra M5 and now I learned about VKB.
I like Russian modern type of grip, but like the Gladiator better gimbal.

I heard about new Gunfigter coming with new modern grip "Kosmo" based on heli design.

Will this be available at release? When is it release?
Will new grip be sold separately with Gldiator Pro base?

Hi petrvs,

the new grips will not be available at the initial release of the Gunfighter; the Gunfighter will be first sold with the KG-12 WWII-style grip (plastic) as the Gladiator/Gladiator Pro. Later, the new VKB grips will be sold separately, and you most likely would need an adapter to fit them onto the Gunfighter base. Sadly, no ETA at this time...

Yes, it should - with the correct adapter (I assume). :)

Thanks.


On the Gladiator pro, will it be possible to mount a Combra M5 stick?

Considering that too, as I like the buttons on Base. Although I see them these are out of stock in the EU :(


Is there any US stock? I have a US address too

US stock of what exactly? The Cobra/Mamba grip is no longer sold by VKB. Any adapters to mount the Cobra/Mamba grip to the Gunfighter are not (yet) made by VKB if as far as I know.

but doesn't the VKB grip adaptor fix that very thing for the gladiator pro as well, i.e. electrical compatability?
would that adaptor also work with the upcoming gunfighter (pro)?

Elecsys

I should say that Gunfighter base connector is different from actual Gladiator PRO base connector, not PS2 (they looks similar):

Will the space-sim grip for the Gunfighter have a pinkie shift? Like the Cobra M5, or the normal grip for the Gunfighter? Because the Gunfighter gimbal seems like everything I want, but if the space-sim grip is missing what is for me a key feature, I might have to think about it. Also, will the Gunfighter Space grip have an easily-accessible mode switch, like the Mamba/Cobra did? Because that's been very useful in ED and SC for me, and I'd love if I could keep it when upgrading to the Gunfighter.
