It seems all they do in NL is weighting and processing in the sorting center. :D
There werent any updates besides repeating departures, weighting and processing.
After that the shipment just arrived and went to delivered.

Yes but after package is being shipped from postNL it takes different delivery timeframe to destination, and Croatia seems worst on the list 5-8 days after package leave sorting center in NL, for example UK and other EU countries delivery timeframe is 2-3 days.
Waiting, i hate waiting! :D :lol:

So you didn't get any further notice in track and trace about delivery after package leaved NL?

Not really. All it said it was in transit. It kept changing the timestamp now and then until the day it was delivered when it changed the status to in delivery.
It isnt like with DHL in Germany where it says in which town the sorting center actually is.

GF arrived almost in the same time as spitfire is being released in the il2-box.....perfect timing (spitfire came 25min after gunfighter).....oh boy!
Quality is awesome, btw i give up from modding kg12 grip since it's beautiful trigger has ergonomic design for right hand, at least while it's new i won't mod it....
Converting for left hand is possible, two things to do;
1. Handrest holder needs modification (more than i expected) and it needs to be careful since it will need to carry heavy load (hand weight)
2. Hat relocation to the right side (also needed more attention) so it can be tighten well, it is not just screws it needs some kind of plug to give resistance and strenght on horizontal axis.
When i get second grip i will give it a try, for now no way!
Thank you Eduard, Natalija and VKB team!

alright :D
In the meanwhile, could you tell me how the metal trigger on the mgc pro will work? What's the difference with the contactless sensor on the pro compared to the normal MCG? Could this trigger be used as a single analog axis with the pro?
And will the lefty version also get a Pro option or just a normal one?

Beginning from the end, bad news is that the lefty version is not an @honest lefty version@, i.e., it is not "the same" grip just mirrored to the left. Yes the lefties will be able to configure their systems so they will feel more comfy working with both hands, but please understand, there are no mirror flip versions.
OK, now to the contactless thing. The point is reliability and longevity. Contactless sensors don't stick, and live longer.
Trigger on the pro will be dual user-programmable switch/axis. You will be able to make it a binary switch, or configure it into an axis, or configure this axis into several switches by setting limits (A to B range is switch 1, B to C - switch 2, C to D - switch 3, etc).
That's about as much as I can tell now.
Sorry it is probably less than you wanted to know ;) but there will be more input coming very soon.
Stay tuned :)
Best Regards,
AeroGator

Similar here, I'm definitely up for a Gunfighter when the twist and MCG arrive ... though given the sparse availability of the GF so far it might be best to bag one first and worry about the grip and twist later.

Though I'm a lefty I'm happy to fly stick right handed. Far less hassle obtaining a stick in the first place and I can mouse left handed at the same time.
