Small customizations. The black flat top switch cap is an optical fibre terminal (idk its real name). Sits very tight and in VR it gives a distinct feel under your thumb.

5 buttons/switch positions are still unused. I'm assigning more controls next.


How did you print those labels?

Some good mounting ideas here. Mine is mounted to a small offside table. I couldn't get it to mount to my chair in a reasonable position for use, it's a Secretlab chair so a little bulky and the room I have to move in is quite limited. Also I prefer it fixed rather than it move with chair movement if you get what I mean. A little scruffy but does the job.

Access to the collective adjustment knob is limited but the stick is so well made it hasn't moved a jot after very intensive use for the past two weeks. 

I have to say it's brilliant for my helicopter flying and it has improved my helo ops massively. I also used some printing tape for my knob labelling too in my case a Brother printer did the job.

Crap, I just got a Secret Labs Omega chair and was hoping it'll work. Guess now I know I need to make a bracket to fix it to the chair.

Nice, I ordered on March 15th so I'll be getting a notification any day now hopefully.

Sweet, so only about another month+ for me as well (April 13th, during a rush as well). Excitement is rising, I also managed to get a friend into flying helis in DCS. 😃

I think you maybe ok. I initially took the left arm off the chair to get it to fit and it seemed ok I just didn't have the swing room and the stick was a little to far forward for my liking, with the supplied bracket. Hence the rethink.

 

Though as I remember the supplied bracket fixing slots didn't line up with the bracket for the SecretLab arm rest holes 😞

Tell me about it. Before, I could  barely take off in a Huey without breaking something.

 

But last night, armed with my new K-51, I made a controlled approach and landed like a feather - on a hill top - in the f****** dark! 🚁 🌚

Great! I have yet to master the Huey, still on the Mi-8 which is going quite well and now the Ka-50 which is terrific. Making up streamdeck buttons is now taking my time to complement my flying. Luckily having been made redundant It keeps me busy!

Hi Mikhail - sent you a PM to request to be added to the wait list please. 🙂

 

Wondering how long it is now... Longer than a thing with very long arms probably 🙂 

 

Cheers

Glyn

I answered you in PM.
As it was written above, this is 2 months, taking into account the sequence. But electronics constantly hold me back.

Hello, I reserved a k 51 a month ago but I'm worried about customs fees because from July 1 in Europe we will be systematically taxed unless VAT paid to the dealer, what is the country of shipment ?
