May I ask how compares this base to the T-50 and the Warthog base in terms of stick precision / smoothness / durability?

Honestly for the little amount of time I spent flying with it, since I am having some issues with mine, it is 100% smoother, more precise, and just easier to fly with.

I have the hard springs on there and I still can make very small adjustments. You can basically fly the aircraft using your fingers, it does not take much force at all to make any manuevers. Making small adjustments is a lot easier.

And my point (based on your comment on Sajarov's picture, comment which I quoted above) is that, while you might think you are fully inserting the connector, in reality you might not fully insert it. If that is the case, then it does not stay in place because it is not fully inserted.

I understand, but I'm not sure why it won't fully insert. The warthog grip goes in fine. I've pressed as hard as I could while it's lined up and I'm in the socket but no idea why it won't stay.

I will unscrew the two small screws and try to lift the wire from the base and see if I can have my hand on it while I hold the base horizontal and try to connect that way.

I know it's not rocket science here but I've tried so many times already. I've never had any such trouble connecting any other type of wires or plugs and I've built several computer's, took a part a lot of electronics, put them back without issue. Something is off here either from the grip's cable or the base's connector.

I do appreciate all the help everyone here has been providing. I will wait and see when virpil replies to my ticket. Maybe they have some tricks I can try to get this right. Would really like to fly some more but for now I guess I can take a break .

Is this base compatible with the cougar stick?
And will it be compatible with the new hornet stick?

I'd assume because the warthog grip is compatible so should the new hornet grip...once it's released we'll know for sure....

From their site...

The VPC WarBRD Base is compatible with the following grips:

★ VPC MongoosT-50 Grip
★ VPC Constellation Delta Grip
★ VPC WarBRD Grip
★ TM Warthog Grip

That's why i'm asking, because the cougar is not mentioned.
But it's not mentioned also in the T-50 base, though it is compatible with it.

If the Virpil site doesn't state that the Cougar is compatible, then I assume it isn't. The cougar is pretty old so I guess no testing was carried out.

Technically since Cougar grips use the same "shift register" (CD4021) of Warthog grip, no reason for don't work in VPC bases since their firmware support this circuit - same used in T50/Delta grips, but in doubt wait someone test.

With CD4021 "shift register" even "Alien" grip work:
