I ordered on the 13th and no notification yet. It's just a few days, it's so close now there is no need to stress about it. It'll come when it comes.

a short question concerning the standalone grip. Is there anyway to connect hte grip directly to the pc without the Virpil base or Warthog base? I've got the t.16000m and therefor have a lack of buttons and switches. The stick-base combo is more what i can spend atm and getting the grip only would be a good start provided you can hook it up directly to the pc somehow. Any idea on that?

uh? Even if it was possible - and I think it could probably be achieved due to the nature of the connector - you would lack the X and Y axis. The grip only for its buttons? Well. Original thought.

Grats Bandit. Still waiting...

I reckon you can 'fiddle' the grip on the t.16000 base and have two devices show up in dcs. Or maybe one can really hook up the grip connector to the t.16000 base electronics...Virpil guys sure know whether its possible.

Well, with enough work I'm sure sure anything would be possible! But seriously, the VPC MongoosT-50 grip isn't compatible with the T.16000 electronics, it is compatible with:
  • VPC-Controller
  • TM Warthog-Controller
  • MMJoy2

Hi Cyph3r,

Bringing discussion back to the base - set includes 3 sets of different cams and springs. Can you, if possible, post instructions on how to swap them.

Thanks!

With the MMJoy2 firmware, correct. But this isn't something I've seen, can help with, nor recommend sorry!

Of course! I'm currently working on a detailed manual for the VPC MongoosT-50 Base which I hope to get out the door very soon. I can already confirm though the process is very simple
