That's unfortunate, I was hoping it would be here before the harrier releases. My poor warthog is on its last legs. Thanks for the info though.

Yeah but will be so worth the wait.

Default adaptor for the moongoose base

I too thought of using the bottom plate as the only way to secure the base. I highly doubt it will stand up to years of abuse though.

A solution to the problem of centremounting the mongoose base could be this:

I ordered a 10 mm alu L-profile 200mmx100mm (width 110, same as the warthog base ) and cut it to shape.

It bolts to the warthog bottom plate(which is secure to my centremount), and the Mongoos base bolts firmly to the "adaptor" and does NOT move a millimeter now.

Now it just needs a paint job.

When i pitch or roll, the device get disconnected ( unplugged / plugged in , that's what i see ingame )
I tried some tests with the Virpil software, same story ( with and without the grip )
Is there something i could do ?
Thank you

Looks like the desk mounts are coming on Monday. Too bad they couldn’t quite make it today. Oh well, what’s a few more days, anyway? Total time from order to shipping: exactly one month. 20th October ordered, shipping on Monday 20th Nov.
Considering how small the company is, and how popular they seem to be, I’m not really surprised.
