  1. Announcing Project VPC MongoosT-50

    Yes - please contact support@virpil.com for your owners discounts! We do apologise for the delay! As mentioned in one of our previous announcements, this delay was due to working on our new factory, webstores etc etc. We will have all orders placed in March dispatched within the next 7 days

    ► VIRPIL Controls Webstores Update 17/04/2018 After launching our new webstores yesterday, unfortunately we experienced some issues both on the EU and Belarusian sides of our stores. First, we would like to clarify the new stores and what they are intended for: www.virpil.by - This is our Belarusian webstore intended to serve our EuAsEC customers only (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia). The prices shown here include Belarusian VAT (20%). www.virpil-controls.eu - This is our new EU webstore and warehouse based in Lithuania. This store can only dispatch to EU customers. These prices also include EU VAT, and orders will be delivered directly to your door rather than requiring customs clearance. www.virpil-controls.by - This is our main webstore, again based in Belarus. However it is intended to serve all other customers around the world not previously covered by the previous two stores. The prices shown here are listed without any VAT to ensure our international customers get the best price possible. Any orders (as was previously) will pass through your country’s local customs office and may be subject to additional local taxes. Secondly we’d like to update the status of our new webstores: Unfortunately, we encountered some issues with our payment gateways on all webstores. Our www.virpil.by and www.virpil-controls.by webstores were using our existing ASSIST payment gateway integration as we’ve done previously. Unfortunately they have encountered to system issues which they are working to resolve ASAP. These issues are: There are difficulties accepting payments from certain countries as reported by our customers. The exact list of countries affected is being clarified and we hope to have resolved with ASSIST within 72 hours. ASSIST’s Mastercard 3D-Secure validation is currently being worked on - as such they cannot process these cards for the time being. We will be updated with news regarding this ASAP. There was also a bug where attempting to register on www.virpil-controls.by redirected to www.virpil.by instead, causing some confusion. This has now been fixed. Our EU store also encountered a hiccup with our integration regarding the ease of order placements. The EU store is running an entirely new platform which we’re working hard to resolve as quickly as possible. We would also like to request patience from our customers regarding support tickets - due to the issues stated we have been overwhelmed with messages which we are working very hard to catch up with, on top of getting our sites back up and running 100%! Thank you all for your patience, VIRPIL Controls Team ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ VIRPIL Controls EU is back online with PayPal payments to help ease the process!

    ► VIRPIL Controls Q2 2018 - Project Update In our previous announcement, we revealed our new official VIRPIL Controls production factory - over the previous 2 weeks, we have completed the design for the internal factory layout and have started to purchase the equipment necessary for production including; CNC machines, workstations, shelving systems for warehouse storage, plastic injection molding machines and other tools and accessories. We have also started the hiring and training of qualified experts to operate the VIRPIL Controls factory. The team is now about 80% completed. The most important upcoming date in Q2 2018 is 30th April - the opening of the assembly and electronics installation facilities. Despite devoting a large portion of our effort and time opening the factory, we have not forgotten about the release of our upcoming products: VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle VPC Constellation Delta Grip VPC WarBRD Grip and Base The assembly of these devices will be implemented in our new factory. The next date of interest is the 20th May - the long awaited release of these new VPC devices! Finally - as previously announced, we have been working on opening our official VIRPIL Controls EU webstore. All orders placed with our EU webstore will be dispatched from Lithuania, with VAT and customs already included. DPD will handle the shipment of all orders, and we expect the overall service will be cheaper and faster for our EU customers. Payment will also be possible via PayPal and all standard online payment cards via a secure Payment gateway. We also expect to open up our distribution network to include Amazon US in the Summer of 2018 to better serve US VIRPILs!

    ► VIRPIL Controls Developments 2018 As many of you have noted over the past few weeks, the VPC team have been rather quiet compared to usual - however, this is not due to us taking a break! We have been working on some very exciting developments ahead of the release of our upcoming product releases. Introducing the Official VIRPIL Controls Production Factory Say hello to the brand new VIRPIL Controls production factory! In our endeavour to create the best flightsim controls available, we have been working behind the scenes to open our own production factory in Belarus. We will be able to control every aspect of prototyping and production including metalworking, plastic casting, electronics installation, mechanical assembly, testing and ordering. This will ensure that we can maintain the highest production quality and speeds than previously possible! Our factory is scheduled to open April 2018. Introducing the VIRPIL Controls EU Official Webstore! Another new development that we’ve been working on behind the scenes is our much demanded, new VIRPIL Controls EU webstore. Orders to our VPC EU webstore will be dispatched from our Lithuanian warehouse, with VAT and customs duty already included and will feature cheaper, and faster delivery to EU destinations via DPD. We will also be accepting payment through PayPal and the usual online card methods through a secure online payment gateway. We will announce the official opening date of the VPC EU Webstore in the near future! What does this mean for our upcoming products? Our VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle, VPC Constellation Delta Grip and VPC WarBRD are very close to official release - however, our main efforts have been devoted to the opening of our factory and EU webstore. We want to usher in a new era of VPC with these developments to ensure that we can provide the best experience possible for our customers! Stay tuned for further news, VPC Team

    Designed initially with atmospheric flight sims in mind, the VPC MongoosT-50 cams exhibited an increasing non-linear tension towards the outer edges of the sticks deflection. This behaviour allows for greater control of of the aircraft as you can feel when you are coming up to 100% deflection easily, granting the pilot the ability to fly right on the limits based on muscle memory alone. The VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick has also become popular with many space-sim pilots as well - pilots that prefer different control nuances for absolute accuracy. As standard atmospheric flight physics do not apply in space, we've been requested to create a new set of cams to account for this. VPC are very pleased to announce, that in our continued efforts to supply the community with what they really want, we have successfully designed a new set of CosmoSim cams for the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick! These results were created with the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick, 125mm (50mm + 75mm) extensions with the medium springs, and pre-tensioners loaded 1/2 of max. Different extensions and springs will change the total force required of each cam, but the response curves should remain relatively consistent. Our new CosmoSim cams exhibit less of a center detent than both the 1-Dot (40% less) and 2-Dot (25% less) cams and the force required at the outer edges of deflection is also significantly less than both the 2-Dot (40% less) and 3-Dot (55% less) cams. The force required at max deflection is slightly increased over the 1-Dot cams (12.5% higher) to aid in the overall centering and performance of the cam due to the lack of a center detent. These cams will be available for purchase from our www.virpil.by webstore!

    The difference between the VPC MongoosT-50 and the VPC WarBRD is the target user: The VPC MongoosT-50 is our high-end flightstick targeted at pro-sim pilots, designed to be mounted in a cockpit style setup (center mount with the VPC Desk Mounts) and used with extensions. The VPC WarBRD is our more mainstream flightstick, which is more compact and is designed to be used on desktops without any extensions. For using the TM Warthog grip, with extensions and heavy spring resistance - the VPC MongoosT-50 would be the better choice for you! It is necessary to mount the VPC MongoosT-50 Base via the included u-bracket. This bracket connects directly to the gimbal and provides the mounting strength required for heavy springs and extensions! VPC WarBRD is scheduled for release by the end of Q1 2018 - more news soon!
  14. Announcing Project VPC MongoosT-50

    ► Su-35 First Flight 10th Anniversary Sale It's no secret that when we created a product named the VPC MongoosT-50®, VIRPIL CONTROLS designers took inspiration from the controls of a real Russian fighter jet. At the first announcement of the project a little over a year ago, many immediately guessed which aircraft was the subject matter. On February 19th 2018, it will be 10 years since the first test flight of Su-35 - a promising multifunctional, generation 4++ fighter jet. The flight duration was 50 minutes and the flight program was successfully completed in full. The Sukhoi Design Bureau test pilot, Sergey Bogdan, who is currently working on the T-50 test program (now designated Su-57), piloted the aircraft. Until now, the cockpit and all systems were classified as Top Secret, but despite this, one of the variants of the flightstick and throttle set was shown at MAKS-2015. It was captured in a number of photographs that were made available in forums. Only 2 years later, at MAKS-2017, the VPC MongoosT-50® flightstick and prototype throttle was available for all to test for themselves in an Su-27CM simulator. For the 10th anniversary of the first flight of the Su-35, and by popular demand, the VIRPIL CONTROLS team announces fantastic discounts in the official store www.virpil.by for all products of the VPC MongoosT-50® family! Now is a great time to purchase a professional flight sim setup with a discount of 20%! The sale event will last from 18/02/2018 to 28/02/2018, while stocks last. For those who already have their VPC MongoosT-50®, the VIRPIL CONTROLS team have a lot of exciting news about the project and developments on future projects following just after the Spring - not long to wait now! Thanks, VIRPIL CONTROLS
