Very interesting. I still want to wait until Virpil finishes their stuff, and also both of you produce your "final" throttle designs.

This looks very nice

So I have the FBM Mk III with an extension which I think is great

Am I correct in thinking if I ordered the stick and 3 pin to 5 pin convertor it would work with my existing set up including the analog axis on the hat/hats

A second question can both hats function as axes or is it one or the other?

Aegis, at the bottom of Rrohde's post are several links...

It's not available for purchase, yet.

I know it's not available yet, but i'm actually wondering about buying some pedals right now. Unfortunately, the only link that works for me, so far( it could be my internet..) is the flighsimcontrols link. That one says using another site, but this 3rd site says they no longer sell VKB's stuff.

Try this, is rrohde site, notice the "North America" at side of VKB logo (and check their signature in forum postage).

http://vkbcontrollers.com/?product=vkb-t-rudders-mk-iv

The address is OK checked now, if don't open is something with your ISP.

T. Okona,

Schienenwolf the topic a bit.

I guess no, in the past VKB withdrawn from the market their Njoy32 for DIY due difficulties with average users don't READ manuals and so don't use the board properly and consequent forum complains.

Now see in their forum and there the difficulties for some to install VKB adapter inside TmW grip.

This what you ask will require far more skill from buyers (that will be few) and a possible technical support (add the language barrier there) that they want avoid.

Due this for me will be not surprise if in the future they even withdrawn the adapter for TmW, specially now that they offer alternative for "few buttons" grip issue.

EDIT - But at same time this will be very easy to add, see what Alex_Oz (VKB electronics guru) say there:

Any word on pre-purchase, or actual purchase dates?

VKBcontrollers.com (please note that the MCG is not yet open for pre-ordering; I will make an email blast via newsletter as soon as I find out when).

Yes, the MCG will work with your Mamba (and mine, for that matter) via adapter that VKB will provide in due time.

From what I gather, both hats are analog (or can be made digital - via VKBdevCfg toggle), and both also include a push button. Gotta be awesome for slewing and selecting targets!
