Advise on which springs and cams on the MKiii


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Recently bought a Gunfighter MKIII with the 10 cm extension. Really like the product. But i am a bit struggling which cams and spring combination to use. I personally like strong recentering but no click around the middle (smooth transition between the axis). I used the aviator and space cams with moderate strong springs but i always get the 'click'. On my previous TM Warthog is never had the 'click' and it is a bit hard to get used to.

Really the only way you will find what feels right to you, is to experiment. Pretty easy to change out springs and cams, just take notes and try different combinations to see what feels best to you.

Perhaps someone will come along that thinks they have theirs setup the way you are describing and can help. But really it does not take that long to change them out.

I would look at VKB's new space sim cams with no center that are close to linear (and not progressive) Witwas. I would then match them with two #40 springs on each cam, or you could even try two #50 cams on each cam. Officially, VKB will not warrantly a broken Mark II or III base when used with more than two #40 springs but the steel cams can support two #50 springs each which would give you a very stiff feel even with your extension. And like Don says, you're just gonna have to experiment.

One of the best ways to appreciate the beauty of the Multiverse is to learn the language in which it is written, ...... mathematics.

Thanks for the advice, tested a few configurations yesterday and ended up with the soft aviator cams and single #50's. The 'click' is gone but still a bit to soft around the center for me but already a huge difference.

I really love this stick. Winwing thought that after trying their stick, I would like it more than the VKB, but there is no comparison. While Winwing's stick is a big improvement over the Warthog and their take on the Hornet grip is also superior to TM Hornet grip, I still feel and hear the cams as I cross the center. The VKB is as smooth as butter and still centers almost perfectly even with a 20 cm extension and heavy metal TM grips.

I am with you there, been using my Mk III hard for 11 months now and it is smooth as can be.

If you do not mind what is the difference between the AVIA H and S It looks like more of a dip in the middle

Thanks

 

The Avia H (hard center) will have more of a solid center detent feeling than the Avia S (soft center) which feels smoother through the middle but without as strong a feel when you're centered on each axis.  I like the soft center cams myself.
