Would it be possible, in one of your future videos, to show a demonstration of the 15º stick deflection? Someone's hand moving the stick through a full forward and back, then side to side travel would be great.

So this grip can be used "PnP" in Warthog base, and in other way Warthog grip can be used "PnP" in BRD bases.

This theoretically make T-50 (that is Warthog base compatible) compatible with BRD base.

Baur option (notice that he not test in practice): "If it (T-50 grip) will work with the joystick Warthog, then their joysticks BRD too."

What can complicated is use T-50 in VKB base due their digital protocol and 3 pin connector, but maybe TWM (electronic) adapter do the trick in T-50 grip. Let's see someone test.

Will be a smart move from VirPil if they make this T-50 grip compatible with many bases = sell more grips.

Testing T-50 in real (virpilot) world conditions:



BTW - The throttle at left is custom made - I guess DviK (or GVL224) mechanics with X-65F grips.

VirPIL throttle:

Regarding the throttle, it would be cool if the raising/lowering the red cover would also flip some switch as the safety switches in DCS modules are usually covered which is a prerequisite to operating the actual switch.

Otherwise, it just looks cool, but can't be used for its most apparent purpose.
