  1. Best place to get answers to issues with VKB hardware and software, especially configuration issues or questions is on their Discord. https://discord.com/channels/438688364359581707/491396882111791133 If you post your question there you'll probably get an answer withing a few hours. Be prepared to include screenshots of your VKBConfig setup.
  2. Probably the best place to get an (almost) immediate answer is VKB's discord channel. https://discord.com/channels/438688364359581707/491396882111791133 There are 2-3 VKB reps that deal specifically with hardware/software setup and troubleshooting that monitor the channel.
  3. Have you tried the VKB Discord channel? Two of their reps are on there daily and are able to answer questions like that.
  4. I'm pretty sure you'll void your warranty if you do.
  5. Release date...unknown. Announcement...in the next day or two if UIV on the Russian forums is true to his word... "The Chinese are preparing for a long vacation, and companies around us are no longer operating at supersonic speed. And we are still trying to work this year. A madhouse, a mess and decay around me. In general, the announcement tomorrow. Or the day after tomorrow"
  6. Not commenting specifically on this particular stick, but on the B-1, the trigger has 2 detents. During terrain following ops, pulling to the first detent temporarily disengages the TF set from providing pitch inputs and allows the pilot-flying to maneuver the aircraft in pitch. Releasing the trigger resumes TF ops. Pulling the trigger to the second detent permanently disengages the TF set from providing pitch inputs. A different switch must be re-engaged to resume TF ops. In both cases, the TF set is still on and calculating a flight patch and playing climb/dive tones over the ICS. This
  7. Mine arrived in Cincinnati yesterday late evening. Scheduled for delivery (South Dakota) on Monday, but we shall see if it gets here Friday.
  8. Maybe it includes not only VAT, but also shipping via airlift instead of the normal slow boat shipping container? The description says "Modern Combat Grip Ultimate Edition (MCG U) via China Express Airlift"
  9. The metal body isn't a huge selling point for me, other than the fact UIV said (interpreted by crappy Google Translate) that the surface has a rough texture sprayed on the metal base, so while not "grippy" in the sense of grippy rubber, it won't be slick. The real selling point for me is the modular hats. I'd love to be able to change the top center mini-stick to a digital hat that clicks (I know you can set it to function as an 8-way, but it still feels like a stick.). Would also be nice to be able to change some of the 5-way switches to 3-way or single press buttons, but I haven't seen t
  10. I love my UCM...have one for my GF and one for my TWCS throttle. I gook the WH plate, located the mounting holes, and made a plate for the TWCS. Works great. One gripe...it would be nice if the extension extrusions you can buy that mount on the side had a plastic cap for the open end. They can be a bit sharp and I've scraped my leg and my chair arms by accident on occasion. I may end up fabricating a cap with 1/8" plywood, but a plastic cap would be nice...
  11. You asked that same question 18 hours ago on Reddit and VKB said "no". Why ask here again?
  12. I have a TWCS throttle I use with my Kosmos and MCG Pro. No issues at all. While I'm waiting for the VKB TECS throttle to come out, I'm frankly very happy with the TECS. After 2 years, the throttle is still smooth, and other than the crappy index finger mini-stick, all of the other buttons are still working perfectly. It's because the throttle is otherwise so nice that I'm not overly anxious for the TECS to be released.
  13. Not my video, but thought I'd post it here... Edit: it's a 4.5ish minute video detailing the parts, assembly, and mounting of the mount system. No voiceover, but really nice video editing.
