Arrow Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick

This is a continuation of the previous VPC discussion thread - Here




Introducing VPC – About Us
VPC (VirPil Controls) is a team comprised of designers, engineers, software developers and virtual pilots with the goal of bringing in a new class of high-end, high precision flight controllers to the consumer market.

28th December 2016 // Announcement No. 01
► VPC MongoosT-50 Flight Controller —The dream of every virtual pilot.

Even yesterday this was just a dream, but soon, you could be one of the first virtual pilots to take to the skies with our brand new flight controller based on the fifth-generation of Russian fighter jets.



Today, VIRPIL.COM are proud to announce our debut flight controller; the VPC MongoosT-50, which consists of a flight stick, dual lever throttle unit and singe-axis rudder pedals. All of which are built with our very own high precision, fully adjustable and all-metal mechanisms.



Using a combination of unique engineering solutions, high-tech equipment and materials, alongside the fastest and most precise electronics available, VIRPIL.COM can help virtual pilots realize the true potential of their aircraft.

To compliment our flight controllers, our revolutionary VPC desk mount can transform your computer desk into a full blown simulator cockpit—the VPCockpit, in just a matter of minutes. Allowing ergonomic placement of the flight controls, you will minimize the need to use the keyboard, allowing you to concentrate on the action!



VPC products will be available in the official web store from February 2017.

Stay tuned for further announcements at the www.virpil.com website.

30th December 2016 // Announcement No. 02
► MongoosT-50 Stick Grip - When design becomes art.

For a very long time it has been the grip that many virtual pilots have dreamed of. Some have tried to create it, but none have succeeded; it eventually became legend.

And now, that long awaited moment is finally here, we present to you the VPC MongoosT-50 Russian fighter jet grip!



Like a sculptor chipping away at marble, we have skillfully worked on our design to create a masterpiece; A true work of engineering art.

Featuring a wide array of controls, including:

• Dual-stage Trigger
• Folding Trigger
• 5 Buttons
• Two 4-way Hats
• Two 2-position Switches
• Analog Brake Lever


The ergonomic design also includes an adjustable wrist rest catering for a wide range of hand sizes, allowing long play sessions without experiencing discomfort.

After enduring extensive testing by experienced virtual pilots across the most popular simulators, we are confident in our design.

The VPC MongoosT-50 stick grip will be released February 2017 at a price of €159,00 which includes the TMWH adapter.

Stay tuned for further announcements at the www.virpil.com website.

I would also like to invite all to follow us on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/VirPilControls/

7th January 2017 // Announcement No. 03
► VPC MongoosT-50 Mechanics - innovative, adjustable, precise

The mechanics/gimbal are often the most criticized component of any joystick. Even with many different designs and approaches, it has been impossible to please everyone. However, with our design we believe we are closer than ever.



Our engineers have designed a compact and elegant solution that allows virtual pilots to control their aircraft with unmatched levels of precision. Both the X/Y axes operate on their own independent cams, with co-axially mounted springs which provide completely separated loading forces. Made from aircraft-grade duralumin, the mechanism is both lightweight and durable.

Our mechanism provides a huge range of adjustability. Each axes spring tension is adjusted via hex socket bolts, which can even be adjusted on-the-fly through the access ports on the top plate, negating the need to disassemble the joystick or replace any springs.



Included are 2 different cams; hard-center and soft-center, which can be combined to create your desired stick feel.

The maximum stick deflection is 15º+15º on both axes which provides a sufficient travel range for high levels of accuracy without compromising practicality.



Complete instructions on how to adjust the stick perfectly for your needs will be available on VIRPIL.COM.

The joystick can be used in a number of configurations: on the desktop with the VPC base plate, center mounted/side mounted with the VPC desk mount, or floor mounted which will require DIY fitting to your own setup.

The VPC MongoosT-50 flight stick (base and grip) will be available from March 2017 for €289,00.

Stay tuned for further announcements at the www.virpil.com website.

► Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50 Black Edition Grip

Due to popular demand we have created a new evolution on the VPC MongoosT-50 Grip. The VPC MongoosT-50 Black Edition Grip.




Featuring all black buttons, flip trigger, hats and palm rest, while retaining the primary red trigger and button, the VPC MongoosT-50 B.E Grip is sleeker and more aggressive than the standard VPC MongoosT-50 Grip. The VPC MongoosT-50 B.E Grip also includes a customisable name plate to really make it yours!



The VPC MongoosT-50 B.E Grip will begin shipping from 16.05.2017. Available now at the official www.virpil.by webstore.


► VPC MongoosT-50 LH Grip - Now Available!

The VPC MongoosT-50 LH (Left Hand) Grip is now available for pre-order!

Perfectly mirroring the standard VPC MongoosT-50 Grip, you won’t miss out on the perfectly crafted ergonomics or extensive feature set with the VPC MongoosT-50 LH Grip.

The VPC MongoosT-50 LH Grip will begin shipping at the 31.05.2017. Available for pre-order now at the official www.virpil.by webstore.

25th May 2017 // Announcement No. 12
► VPC MongoosT-50 Electronics

The components used in the VPC MongoosT-50 control systems are of a proprietary design courtesy of the VirPil Controls design team.

The system consists of:
• VPC-Controller
• VPC 360° 16-bit Digital Sensors (iGMR-Based Angular Sensor)



At the heart of the control system you will find our VPC-Controller. This is based around a modern RISC AVR processor provided by Atmel. Capable of 16 million instructions per second. Data updates for axes positions and button presses are processed at 500 times per second.

Supporting up to 8 axes and 128 buttons, the VPC MongoosT-50 electronics will be able to support any future VPC grips.



The controller is compatible with both Windows and MacOS PCs, connecting via USB 2.0. The controller is automatically recognized without requiring any prior driver or software installations.



The VPC sensors use contactless iGMR (magnetic field) technology, based on the latest ADC chips offering 16-bit precision. The sensor chip controls the DSP processor at a speed of 8 million instructions per second and connects to the controller via a 4wire proprietary comms protocol. The resulting accuracy is a huge 32,000 readings per 360 degrees in 1 count steps (0.01° / count). The resulting accuracy across the joystick’s travel means movements as small as 0.006° are detected!

Our VPC-Config software meets the needs of every player, transforming the VPCockpit controls into a fully configurable professional flight tool. More information on this in our next announcement!

Stay tuned for further announcements at the VIRPIL.COM website.

► VPC MongoosT-50 Base & Flightstick Shipping Update

In our efforts to remain as honest and transparent as possible with our customers, the VPC Team unfortunately reports the postponement of the previously announced delivery dates for pre-orders including the VPC MongoosT-50 Base and VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick.

Initially it was planned for all pre-orders before 5th May to be shipped at the end of May, and all pre-orders after 5th May will begin shipping 10th June.
However, the production of the mechanics have taken longer than initially planned. We were presented the choice to maintain our initial timing, or provide superior quality. We ultimately chose the latter.
We will confirm the new pre-order shipping dates in 2-3 days.

We deeply apologise for this delay, henceforth we will be much more restrained with our announced timings to ensure this doesn’t happen again. As compensation for the long wait, the VPC Team is preparing a gift for every pre-order customer.

Thankyou all for your patience and continued support!

► VPC Pre-Orders Shipping Update

In the last week, the VPC Team had met together at the VPC HQ in Belarus to discuss the status of the current pre-orders including the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick & Base production.

As per our previous announcement, there had been a delay on our initial shipping estimate due to some minor improvements being made to the MongoosT-50 gimbal which required some retooling at the production factory. The production factory was then required to fulfil a large state order before moving on to ours. We apologise for this delay and appreciate everyone’s understanding during the wait.

However, we are now pleased to announce that the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick and Base orders will begin shipping on July 1st, with orders being dispatched on a first come, first serve basis.

We also have good news for users who have pre-ordered our VPC MongoosT-50 LH Grip and PC MongoosT-50 LH Flightstick. Production has already begun and these orders will also be shipping on July 1st!

12th July 2017 // Announcement No. 16
► VPC MongoosT-50 Shipping Update & Unboxing

VPC are pleased to announce that the VPC MongoosT-50 Base/Flightstick shipping is now in full swing. After an initial small batch last week, we are dispatching a much larger batch Monday 17th July which should just about cover all existing remaining orders!

To give everyone a sneak-peek, we’ve got an extensive set of unboxing photos to help with the final few days wait!




As a special gift for the lengthy delay, we are including a high-quality, embroidered dust cover for the VPC MongoosT-50!

► VirPil Controls at MAKS 2017

July 18-23 2017, the International Aviation and Space Exhibition MAKS 2017 will take place at the Russian Central Test Base airport (Mikhail Gromov Flight Research Institute). About 800 companies from more than 30 countries of the world are going to participate in this event.

In addition to the demonstrations of aircraft and helicopters from the event participants, eight teams are also expected to participate in a series of aerobatic displays. Undoubtedly, the attention of all aviation specialists and media will be riveted to the town of Zhukovsky over these next few days.

Of course, there will be also something interesting to see for virtual pilots as well.

In Pavilion D9 at the Constanta Design Company Stand #14, where their product lineup (software solutions in the field of image generation for next-generation imaging systems) will be shown, all spectators can try to fly at one of the two experimental setups "Aviadarts VR" which are simulators of the Su-27SM2 ​​fighter.

The proprietary software of Constanta Design (landscape, objects of the world, visualization system, aircraft module), virtual reality helmet (VR) and control system consisting of stick, throttles and tri-axial pedals F2 (Su-35) from BRD, which became already classics and well-known by virpils from all over the world.



We are proud to announce, that together with software and devices with such high-profile names, the VPC MongoosT-50 Grip and the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle (prototype) produced by VirPil Controls are installed in the simulators!

This is a very exciting moment for us: here, at MAKS, the first official take-off of VirPil Controls to the virtual sky will take place. We are sure that you will all feel how much time, effort and love was invested by the team to the project and we truly believe that VPC's quality products will take a worthy place in your home cockpits.

During the opening hours of the air show (10:00 - 18:00), VirPil Controls team members will work on the stand. Visitors will be able to get acquainted with VPC products, learn about future developments, ask questions and test the devices.

Welcome to MAKS 2017!

21 July 2017 // Announcement No. 18
► VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick & Base Shipping Status

This week marked the start of the much anticipated dispatching of the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightsticks and Bases. The VPC team has been working around the clock to ensure we can get all existing pre-orders shipped out in a timely manner.

Unfortunately we must announce that a small error, but an error nonetheless, with the VPC MongoosT-50 gimbal from the factory has been discovered shortly after the first batches early this week were dispatched.

The issue is regarding the compression spring channel, which due to an error with the factory CNC software, it is 2mm narrower than intended. This caused some unpleasant noises to be produced during movement. This tolerance error had also affected the cam fixing points, which caused some unwanted movement (~0.1 to 0.15mm).

After discussions with the team last night, we have decided to recall the batches from the courier that went out earlier this week as we did not like the idea of our earliest and most supportive customers receiving anything but the newest and best revision of the VPC MongoosT-50 gimbal right out of the gate.

The necessary changes have been made at the factory early this morning and these problems have now been resolved. It has been agreed that the factory will now produce from today and over the entire weekend. The revised batch we will receive on Monday 24th will be large enough to cover all existing pre-orders and the VPC team will again be working around the clock to assemble, test, package and despatch all orders next week.

We understand wholeheartedly the frustration and disappointment experienced by some of our customers due to these delays. All of us at VPC apologise that it has taken much longer overall than anticipated to get the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightsticks and bases into everyone’s hands.

On top of the previously announced VPC dust cover gift, we will also be issuing a 10% discount coupon for all users who have experienced a delay with their pre-order. For any users who are still unhappy with the situation, we will issue a no-hassle complete refund, for any customers who do wish to receive a refund, please contact sale@virpil.com with your order number.

Thank you all for your patience and support!

►VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick & Base Pre-orders Shipping Now!

After much anticipation, and tireless around-the-clock work from every member of the VPC team, we are pleased to announce that the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick and Base pre-orders are shipping as of today!

To recap, the delays were caused after some tolerance issues had been discovered by our QA team after the first batch of pre-orders were dispatched a number of weeks ago. While the VPC MongoosT-50 was still a great Flighstick in this state, we ultimately decided to recall these units to ensure that our pre-order customers receive nothing else except the latest and greatest revision of the VPC MongoosT-50.

The last couple of weeks our designers and QA team have worked very closely with our partner factories to resolve these issues. The hard word has paid off as we now have in our hands, a version of the VPC MongoosT-50 Base which is even better than originally designed!

As mentioned in our previous announcements, we are offering a number of perks to our pre-order customers for the delays. All orders for the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick and VPC MongoosT-50 Base placed before July 21st 2017 will be counted as a pre-order. The perks offered will include:
  • Free VPC Dust Cover
  • 10% Coupon Code for www.virpil.by
  • Special Pricing on the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle and VPC Stealth Rudders

We will be dispatching orders at a rate that will see the huge amount of pre-orders fulfilled within 5-8 working days. Shipping notifications will be emailed at the end of the day which will including an EMS Express shipping number. Please keep an eye on your spam folder just in case!

Thank you everyone for your patience, the supportive messages from many of you have been great! We have learnt a lot from everyone’s input on how we can better handle our future product releases.

See you all in the skies soon!

My question was not answered by any Virpil people in the other thread so I'll repost it here. Will you make an adapter for the warthog grip that would be usable on your base? So that we can have the best of both worlds.

Sorry I missed your question in the other thread! We're currently looking into an adapter for the TM Warthog grip, but of course for the best experience we'd recommend combining the MongoosT-50 grip with our base!

*EDIT*
The TM Warthog Grip is now a direct fit onto the VPC MongoosT-50 Base without any adapters or firmware changes!
