Will it be possible to buy just the throttle unit with no desk mount system and no stick?

Will the throttle have a metal motion system? I would like something with a finer level of sensitivity than the Warthog throttle, which the deficiencies of become apparent on air refueling.

Yes it will be possible! All of our products will be available for purchase separately.

More information on our throttle will be revealed in a future announcement. Watch this space.

Yes the grip can be rotated 0-20 degrees for better ergonomics when center mounted!

I'll have some more photos of the grip to show in a future announcement

He means can the grip be turned permanently to the left say 15 degrees from the forward position of the base or extension to make your wrist more comfortable when flying for longer periods like some of the real aircraft.

I think he meant if it is possible to rotate the grip for a 10-15 degree offset for a more ergonomic hand position when centre mounted.

Hi, This look very promising, I hope you the best.
Can you tell us more about your programming capabilities with these devices ?
If you develop your own programming system, do you plan to manage other USB devices in it ? Like the TM MFDs for example ?

We will showcase the capabilities of our configuration software in a future announcement!

7th January 2017 // Announcement No. 03
► VPC MongoosT-50 Mechanics - innovative, adjustable, precise

The mechanics/gimbal are often the most criticized component of any joystick. Even with many different designs and approaches, it has been impossible to please everyone. However, with our design we believe we are closer than ever.



Our engineers have designed a compact and elegant solution that allows virtual pilots to control their aircraft with unmatched levels of precision. Both the X/Y axes operate on their own independent cams, with co-axially mounted springs which provide completely separated loading forces. Made from aircraft-grade duralumin, the mechanism is both lightweight and durable.

Our mechanism provides a huge range of adjustability. Each axes spring tension is adjusted via hex socket bolts, which can even be adjusted on-the-fly through the access ports on the top plate, negating the need to disassemble the joystick or replace any springs.



Included are 2 different cams; hard-center and soft-center, which can be combined to create your desired stick feel.

The maximum stick deflection is 15º+15º on both axes which provides a sufficient travel range for high levels of accuracy without compromising practicality.



Complete instructions on how to adjust the stick perfectly for your needs will be available on VIRPIL.COM.

The joystick can be used in a number of configurations: on the desktop with the VPC base plate, center mounted/side mounted with the VPC desk mount, or floor mounted which will require DIY fitting to your own setup.

The VPC MongoosT-50 flight stick (base and grip) will be available from March 2017 for €289,00.

Stay tuned for further announcements at the www.virpil.com website.

I would also like to invite all to follow us on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/VirPilControls/
And also on Twitter @ https://twitter.com/VirPilControls
