Hi Cyph3r,

Wonder if you can help with a couple more questions please?

I have just received the T-50 flight base and grip - they are great - really pleased with both.

With regard to the throttle can you provide pictures of the mechanics of how the levers operate at all? Wondering if they are as engineered as the flight base is.

I purchased the base flightstick from the Virpil site prior to the Amazon shop being available. Will i have to order the throttle from the same site in order to qualify for the % discount or can that be done through the Amazon site?

Also will there be a cover for the throttle similar to the flight stick cover?

Thanks - and keep up the great work!

Si

Is there a chance that the throttle grips will be modular?

No thanks.

If there are problems / issues with the product its very easy to return the item in Amazon USA.

The only way I buy most big ticket items these days.

The only thing that seems to be missing is some kind of 3-way mode switch (e.g. like on Saitek or TM HOTAS) which can be quite handy to modify some assignments on the stick and throttle depending on the active mode.
