It's completely down to personal preference! We know a lot of users who have stuck with the hard center cams, but others who really dislike the feel of them and have moved to the soft/no center cams.

Got her all set up now. Hopefully not too much longer, should get to spend some quality time with it over the next three to four days... everything checking out great in windows, looking smooth!

You should definitely take the base apart and try different cams/springs - otherwise you do not know what you are missing on. Being able to adjust the feel of the joystick is IMO the biggest advantage of T50 over Warthog. It's fairly easy and straight forward, can't really mess it up. The only 'trouble' spot is putting new pitch cam in place, but it goes in with a bit of elbow grease.

Yeah I am going to be giving that a try, will probably opt for softer center feel cam , but going to wait on my replacement cams as the ones I got have the ridges in them, so don't want to try it with those. Will wait and do all of that tweaking at one time.

No drivers or software are required. It's completely plug and plug. However we will be offering a configuration utility in the near future.

Of course, the VPC MongoosT-50 is compatible with any sim that can use USB controllers.

Cyph3r, excuse me, but i don't understand exactly.
If i want, for example, to assign a button for " brake / gears " how am I going to to this ?
Lets's say, DCS - M2000C
I just open the M2000 control menu, and i assign a VPC MongoosT-50 button to brake or gear, and that's it ??
Thank you

When is this utility due to be available and what will it's capabilities be? Will it use a scripting language like the Cougar or Warthog?
