That's correct. Currently as the MongoosT-50 base is not available until March, we are offering our grip with a large pre-order discount and bundling it with an adapter to use it with the TM Warthog base!

People who pre-order the MongoosT-50 grip will also be first in line for the MongoosT-50 base and receive preferential pricing!




It is free to be added onto the pre-order list. We will be contacting all pre-order customers in the near future to confirm all details.

The prices are excluding customs and local taxes. In the future we will be opening additional distribution centers, the first of which will be in the EU and prices will be adjusted accordingly.

At first we will be shipping from Belarus via EMS. I'll be able to confirm the weights/shipping info etc etc in the near future so this will all become clear before payment is taken!
Does it use a pot with a rotary momentary switch built into it or is this something that is processed on the pcb? Having looked at the drawing again I see it was the lower spring catch I thought was a microswitch is really just part of the grip body.

So, the grip + TMW adapter allows you to use the grip on the warthog base? Would this then also work on the BRD-N with WH adapter which the WH grip directly attaches to and works with?

Regarding the VPC Mongoos T-50 Base & Mechanics, from the Virpil website: "The maximum stick deflection is 15º+15º on both axes which provides a sufficient travel range for high levels of accuracy without compromising practicality".

Now this seems perfect for center mounted use with an extension, but does this seem enough deflection to use this base/gimbal with a side mounted stick/no extended handle?

Hello Cypher,

is there MongoosT-50 grip without Warthog adapter and electronics to buy?

I want to build the with a Leo Bodnar, or similar controller, to a Microsoft SideWinder FFB2.

What are additional costs (taxes, shipping costs) when the handle is delivered to germany?

Micha

Nope no switch, it's processed by the PCB. There's quite a bit of clever electrical wizardry going on thanks to mega_mozg!

I can't say for sure as I don't have a BRD base to test with. I've passed this on to our engineers who should be able to provide a solid answer soon!

As the VPC MongoosT-50 is designed to be a high-end, professional flightstick, you've correctly stated that it is perfect for center mounting with an extension!

However, I don't feel as though the stick is hindered in anyway when used as a sidestick or without the extension. Of course there is an element of subjectivity and personal preference with these things!

Unfortunately the VPC MongoosT-50 grip will not be sold without the electronics.

I will PM you some estimates on the shipping to prevent this thread getting flooded with shipping estimates to different countries!

More solid figures on shipping etc will be confirmed with all our pre-order customers in the near future.

Is this the only TM Warthog adapter that is planned? Or will there be an adaptor to go the other way, i.e. use the TM Warthog handle on the Mongoos base?

Apologies if this has already been answered, I haven't been through the whole thread yet.
