Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50


Recommended Posts

3rd August 2017 // Announcement No. 19

►VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick & Base Pre-orders Shipping Now!

 

After much anticipation, and tireless around-the-clock work from every member of the VPC team, we are pleased to announce that the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick and Base pre-orders are shipping as of today!

 

To recap, the delays were caused after some tolerance issues had been discovered by our QA team after the first batch of pre-orders were dispatched a number of weeks ago. While the VPC MongoosT-50 was still a great Flighstick in this state, we ultimately decided to recall these units to ensure that our pre-order customers receive nothing else except the latest and greatest revision of the VPC MongoosT-50.

 

The last couple of weeks our designers and QA team have worked very closely with our partner factories to resolve these issues. The hard word has paid off as we now have in our hands, a version of the VPC MongoosT-50 Base which is even better than originally designed!

 

As mentioned in our previous announcements, we are offering a number of perks to our pre-order customers for the delays. All orders for the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick and VPC MongoosT-50 Base placed before July 21st 2017 will be counted as a pre-order. The perks offered will include:

 

  • Free VPC Dust Cover
  • 10% Coupon Code for http://www.virpil.by
  • Special Pricing on the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle and VPC Stealth Rudders

 

We will be dispatching orders at a rate that will see the huge amount of pre-orders fulfilled within 5-8 working days. Shipping notifications will be emailed at the end of the day which will including an EMS Express shipping number. Please keep an eye on your spam folder just in case!

 

Thank you everyone for your patience, the supportive messages from many of you have been great! We have learnt a lot from everyone’s input on how we can better handle our future product releases.

 

See you all in the skies soon! :pilotfly:

Hi insanedruid, we actually have a huge number of pre-orders to fulfil.

 

3 batches have gone out so far, with some more shipping notifications going out this morning. As mentioned in the announcement it will take us 5-8 working days to catch up with the current backlog.

In preparation of people receiving their VPC MongoosT-50 Flightsticks, I've made up some button map templates so everyone can get started on their profiles! :thumbup:

Let me ask something.

 

The brake lever is working like a real lever? I mean, its possible to make it work like an axis and use it like a real brake?

 

For example, the more you push the stronger the brake effect, or is like a button with two positions 0%-100% brake?

Yes that's absolutely possible! On the VPC MongoosT-50 Base it works as both an axis 0-100% and/or a button press.

 

However, on the TM Warthog Base it works as a button press.

Very nice, so we are going to be able to bind and use the brake button and axis at the same time?

 

Any news on the software?

 

That's correct :)

 

It's close, probably looking at the second half of August!

As mentioned in our last announcement regarding the pre-order shipments (posted on 03.08.2017), all pre-orders will be dispatched within the following 5-8 working days. We are now on the 3rd working day from that announcement and we are still on track with our target to fulfil all pre-orders within that time frame.

 

No one is being left out, we are following a strict shipment plan. Your order will be dispatched within the time frame promised in the announcement! :thumbup:

I ordered on the 13th and no notification yet. It's just a few days, it's so close now there is no need to stress about it. It'll come when it comes.

a short question concerning the standalone grip. Is there anyway to connect hte grip directly to the pc without the Virpil base or Warthog base? I've got the t.16000m and therefor have a lack of buttons and switches. The stick-base combo is more what i can spend atm and getting the grip only would be a good start provided you can hook it up directly to the pc somehow. Any idea on that?

uh? Even if it was possible - and I think it could probably be achieved due to the nature of the connector - you would lack the X and Y axis. The grip only for its buttons? Well. Original thought.

 

Grats Bandit. Still waiting...:)
