I got the GF Pro, ordered Tabletop.

I would do the same as pretagonist said, as long as VKB sends me a label, I'll forward pro-parts anywhere they want...

Now, let's build this thing...

Contact Eduard and he will tell you what to do. If you didn't order the Warthog Adaptor then he'll probably ask you to keep the base, return the adaptor and he'll send you out a grip and an extension and any extra cams and springs if they're needed and anything else that comes in the Pro package.

So no need to panic, Eduard will sort this out for you.

I changed my mind and instead of sending my pro parts back I bought them from VKB instead. I might not really have use for the extension right now but having it on felt so good that I might have to investigate ways to actually use it.

I am planning on getting a pilot's license soonish so it might be nice to have a long stick like in the actual plane the school uses.

Got mail yesterday, delivery service picked it up this morning so i guess next week he's here, maybe at the same day spitfire will be released in il2 box.
I must say now i'm bit calmer and more patient, checking tracking every once in a while :D
Good thing about being sent late this week is we'll get correct order, it would be end of the world getting base without grip hehe.

I recieved my Gunfighter Pro yesterday. Oddly, there is a TM Adapter (which I didn't order) label on the box, but no adapter or W cam in the package. So I guess that's just a case of wrong packaging.

Much worse though, is that one of the 4 outer top Allen head screws is 'worn' from the factory, so the Allen wrench supplied just 'slips' around, not loosening the screw! So I'm stuck here, not able to get in and adjust the dry clutches or swap springs / cams. :(

PM me with an attached close up picture of the screw head. Please no huge files; 300x300 or 500 x 500 pixels would be plenty. We'll see what could be done.
Best Regards,
AeroGator

I just got a second shipping mail (order 1644). I dont need a third stick. :D

edit: I got the first shipment but it only contained the rudder and one Gunfighter although the shipping papers say 1 rudder and 2 Gunfighter.
I guess ill get the missing Gunfighter with the second package.

I've got mail in thursday, on friday morning they update status that package is in sorting process, later that day they update it again saying it is still in sorting process (i'm confused why they update it with same message twice) and still staying that way. It didn't leave NL.
It is national post service so i guess it will take time, if i'm lucky it will arrive next week in Croatia, maybe in other EU countries takes less time.
Update: just leaved Netherland!

Hey guys,

One question....how come all of you waited so long for the GF to be shipped?
I just ordered the Gladiator MKII, on July 1st. The confirmation mail said that the order will be processed immediately.
Now I am worried that I will have to wait like redribbon or something :/

Thanks for the feedback :)
