A T50 half the price, take it!!
@thonnie : good luck with VKB. I've heard their software is top notch straightforward noob friendly, you should be home there. I'm eagerly awaiting your next message on VKB parts of the forum...

Discontinuation? Will WarBRD be the only base left or is an announcement for a new base on its way?

I took a look at vkb software and it looks more confusing than virpil's if you use the actual one the developers reccomend and not the simplified version thats made by someone else.

VKB software is not "confusing", just happens that their GUI is writen in... Nubiru language.

Perfect combination!



Another satisfied customer for your account, Virpil. This base is a masterpiece!

I totally agree! I use the T-50 base with the TM WH grip for almost all aircraft. Only when I fly the Spit or the Mig-21 I use the T.50 grip, because of the analogue brake lever.
The heavy TM WH grip tends to lean forward a little and that's a bonus when I fly the Bf-109 because I can trim it for level flight which is otherwise impossible.

Did you mounted it from the base? That's not good.

Also did you use heavy springs in the base for the warthog grip?

Been testing mine for a few weeks.
Pros:
+ Great feel, especially around the centre it's a huge improvement when compared to TMHW and this alone is worth the upgrade
+ Awesome precision
+ Customizability. Didn't have to replace cams or springs, but the ability to tweak each axis stiffness with a simple screw is a big plus.
+ Smaller deflection (15 degress) feels better with extension than TMHW (20 degrees)
+ Warthog grip compatibility out-of-the-box
+ analog brake axis
+ more buttons, less HATs than Warthog (for those who want more buttons)

Cons:
- less HATs, more buttons than Warthog (for those who want more HATs)
- T-50 CM build quality is mediocre. Mine has 1mm panel gap in front, I can feel the grip plastic halves move when force is applied, all HATs and trigger wobble more than 1mm to each side.
- T-50 ergonomics aren't as good as Warthog.
- The foldable trigger does not send the information if it's folded or not to the sim, so it's only a gimmick.
- My Warthog grip does not fit VPC stick extension very well. I'm using the older one from Sahaj.
- Joystick software seems limited. But I haven't tested it much.
