Looking forward to the T-50.
This was not a Kickstarter project...

BTW welcome to the forums!

Thanks

I guess I meant to say that getting new products manufactured always ends up taking longer than anyone expects/hopes.

Thankyou!

Well as previously mentioned, there were some minor changes to the gimbal which required some retooling at the factory. And then after that, there was a large state order placed with the factory that unfortunately took priority.

btw i have a question, about the virpil base, what kind of spring should i use for the warthog grip?
Thanks, I won't lie, I am very exhausted

Really any of them work quite well, I'm using a fairly light spring on my prototype base with the Warthog grip and it works very nicely in use with some slight tipping forward due to the Warthog grip's weight. Bumping up the tension slightly will solve that, but I like the stick nice and light!

Long story short, it's completely user preference

Thanks Cyph3r, welcome back, and hopefully a lesson learnt.

I hope there weren't too many panicked bail-outs, as I truly want you guys to succeed. The more people we have making good quality products, the better for all.

Looking forward to having the Mongoos in my filthy paws.

Cyph3r,

Thank you for the information you shared here yesterday, it is appreciated. I like most here look forward to receiving the products here in a couple of weeks or so and hopefully this will be all behind us.

I am a little curious still however. I notice there have been no posts or updates on the official Virpil forums since the silent period began around the 1st of June, nor any update on the Virpil website. The last update was on May 31, and no posts responding to questions since around June 2, both Russian and English forums. In fact if one were relying on the Virpil website and forums alone for their communication and support, things would still be silent for them. I don't see where any of the active Virpil team members on the official forum have even logged on for quite some time?

Hi dburne. It's purely a matter of time, I'm still catching up on emails and direct messages even today. I hope to get around to the few remaining forums, including our own, as well as a website announcement very soon

Fair enough, thanks for the reply.
