Really needs to be metal as the tensions can be great.
Go to VKB website and check out their offerings/accessories. It is shown there. Quite a substantial product.

What I would like to see is a modification that is the TM screw ring adapted to the VKB mount. That would open up many doors for sales for VKB (IMHO).

That way, I could keep the standard TM ring mount as provided by TM and screw it onto a ring adapter from VKB.

Many people do not want to open a new Joystick and nullify their warranty to install the current VKB adapter.

Surely this could be achievable by VKB? or . . . . our brilliant third party enthusiasts?

I think even a Nylon SLS part should be strong enough, but you could print in metal as well. If someone could give me the dimensions I would try.

Ive been using a purely SLS 3D printed Thrustmaster connector for two years on my BRD DS gimbal. I either use it with my Cougar grip or CH grip with a 3D printed tailpiece. Here have a look at the pictures.

Edit: It seems there is a proprietary 3 wire to 5 wire SPI board included. Would need to analyze it as well of youre not only using TM grips.

Old base, new stickers. At least that's what it looks like.

And they sell a new F-16C/A-10 addon grip for 179,99 euro.
Bought the same addon grip directly form Thrustmaster few months ago for 100 euro + 17 euro shipping.

What they should do is a Hornet throttle, as the one by Winwing, apart from being prohibitively expensive, is only sold with their stick making everything ridiculously expensive.

Hi Sokol1,
What I mean is a male nut adapter/converter for the Gunfighter base to allow a TM Stick to mount on the VKB base and with the electronic adapter.

I have my F-18 stick mounted and also want to mount my WH stick but would prefer not to have to buy another adapter like they have now. One male adapter with electronic adapter on a small extention on the VKB base would be great.
