  1. This is exactly how I fly. Love the combo. Z...
  2. Awesome mod, but geez, how hard is it to add this to the throttle in factory, considering it was mentioned right at introduction? Not sure I wan't to drop that sort of cash on a VPC throttle, only to hack at it... Z...
  3. I bought the BRD F3 a few years back, it’s a beautiful set of pedals, this looks like a nice update. We’re I looking for another set of pedals, I’d be getting these for sure! Z...
  4. I would like to see a metal replacement for that - the analog operation, coupled with the thin plastic makes it feel very vague for me. Otherwise, I think the new TM50 v2 hits the mark. Z...
  5. Yeah... I'm not seeing any issues there, it's pretty typical for high-end, hand made products of any type to be like this. It may not look like an iProduct internally, but, you can also DIY repair it easily if need be, unlike say, an iProduct... Z...
  6. Looks very nice! I'm super happy with my T-50, so won't be upgrading, but I think this is a worthwhile wait for those that did not get, but wanted the original T50. Now, about that throttle with analog thumb stick... Z...
  7. Sold! Warthog can finally be sold, (along with my old T50 grip). Z...
  8. I've got both the T-50 and the WarBRD. Both are a step above the Warthog - the Warthog is NOT all metal, only the grip is made of a (fairly low grade) metal. It still feels great, though, and I do think the Warthog grip has a better layout than the Virpil grip - primarily due to the 4 way + push hat switch at the thumb - it Virpil would only update the T50 grip with a 4way+press hat at the thumb, it would pretty easily beat out the Warthog, IMHO. The Warthog has a very old style gimbal, and it is plastic. The VPC bases are all metal, are adjustable with spring and cam changes, and general
  9. Kind of unfortunate - they are not exactly "old" hardware. Z...
  10. Software is by far the only weak link in the VPC system. Luckily, we probably won't have to spend more than 10-20 minutes performing that process over the lifetime of our VPC products, but it really is a disappointment, and there is very little documentation that truly covers what's going on. I hope this can, in time, be improved to be a little more intuitive. Otherwise, the hardware is magic, and I'll take the slight inconvenience of the software to have the privilege to use the great hardware :thumbup: Z...
  11. Seems most people on the VPC forum want another space grip... :joystick: Z...
  12. this. this this this this and this. Please. Z...
  13. I prefer the Warthog grip to the T-50 ergonomically. If there were a good quality plastic replica of the WH grip, I'd probably prefer it, but I'd still insist on a metal lever, the plastic one on the T-50, especially with the fact that it's an axis, lacks feel. The plastic flxes, and I have a tough time knowing when the button is actuated, and when it is fully at the end of the press. The metal level on the WH feels much more precise in that I know when it has pressed the button. I've been tempted to get someone to make a metal version of the T-50 lever more than once... Otherwise, if the
  14. This is why I have a PO Box. It's just frustrating as hell when people DON'T dleiver to a PO Box... Especially when the courier company delivering your goods is owned by the post office, and the dispatch center is also the exact location of your PO Box... Z...
