    Announcing Project VPC MongoosT-50

    According to them, repairing itself should´ve taken no more than a week. Mine was there from about mid December until 2/1/19 when they announced it was fixed, but considering it was a long holiday season in between, longer time was expected and it was ok for me. After all I´m quite happy how this turned out and most propably will be bying the Virpil throttle in the near future, too.

    Finally got my base back from maintenance after 1,5 months. According to support, the entire gimbal assembly was replaced. Only critique would be the long time it took sending it back to me, but now that he stick works like charm, I really can´t complain 👍 Damn, it was good to be back flying, although my already mediocre SA and aiming have deteriorated during the break. Guess there´s only one way to get them back

    Yes I asked, too, and they were helpful, but I don´t remember receiving any pdf´s or anything, though. With this in mind, I wrote them if they could help me with the cam bolts as Seb71 suggested. Hopefully they receive the message - they got the base delivered yesterday.

    Did you manage to fix it yourself? I decided to play it safe and send the base to their support center last week, as warranty covers it. I was too afraid I break something if I open the base myself - I haven´t opened it at all yet. Downside is that I´m without a stick for the time being

    Hmmm, I was flying one of the Stukas with SG 2, and if my memory serves me right, we lost three Stukas and we shot down 2 of you. And didn´t 109´s downed at least some of the reds after they arrived in the scene ? Anyway very intense and fun fight to start the evening, you got us by suprise! Very enjoyable FNBF as usual (especially after we managed to flatten the language barrier ) , thanks everyone!

    Hm, interesting. I Got answer from Virpil Support saying the loose magnet is actually the reason, and I tighten it would help.

    Anyone else has similar problem: The T-50 Base loses its pitch (y-axis) calibration constantly. No matter how often I calibrate stick using virpil software, after a few moves the pitch calibration is usually somewhere between 51-68 %, or sometimes 49-41 % (50 % is the middle). The calibration changes constantly during the flight along the pitch axis. At the moment stick is quite unflyable, as stable flying and shooting accurately is very difficult (well, more than it is usually for me :)) I opened a ticket in Virpil Support Center a few days ago, but haven´t got any answer.

    27" 1440p Monitor with IL-2

    Pretty much same here: Just upgraded old 24'' 1080p lcd to 27'' 1440p Asus G-sync, with TN-Panel though (Tried the IPS version, too, but the notorious backlight bleed was way more that I could handle). And I´ve got GTX 970, too. With the old 24" i could run everything maxed out, but now for example in Kuban mad I have to make compromises, interested where you have cut corners? I already reduced drawing distance to 100 km and shadows to medium, but things could be smoother. But I have to say, spotting is now easier and movement is very lifelike and smooth, TBH i cannot tell the difference in colors between TN and IPS.

    Dedicated Bomber Squadron

    I could not agree more. Found it a couple of weeks ago, and great reading

    Northern part of Eastern front

    Having recently read a book about Hans Döbrich and JG5 stationed in Petsamo, I think the Arctic Sea front would definitely make an interesting campaign. Compact, yet exotic area of operations, lots of different planes on both sides and good variety of missions, especially attacking/defending the arctic supply convoys to Murmansk and Archangeli.
