Announcing Project VPC MongoosT-50

Recommended Posts

That's worrying. I use the trigger only for changing bomb/rocket salvo's, but have always thought it looked a bit flimsy, and because I have to pack the stick away after flying the trigger is quite vulnerable. I wonder how hard it would be to fabricate one out of aluminium, which of course could cause its own issues with the surrounding plastic...
I would be tempted to order a few triggers as spares depending on price, I want this stick to last several years for the price.

Yeah I have not yet heard back from support - hope to soon, but think I will inquire on spares also.

 

Well going into game and see if I can figure out what best to assign cannons to now - ugh.

 

Edit: Nothing really works quite like that flip down trigger, having a second trigger is huge and one of the reasons I bought this stick.

Big time inconvenience Virpil.

Can't you put mg on 1st stage, cannon on stage2?  

 

This way don't allow fire Cannon only - outside of convergence range fire MG and Cannons is waste of ammo.

 

Baur (BRD) - now part of VPC team, make the trigger of their KG-13B grip in pot metal:

Maybe they can offer a metal option for T50 foldable trigger.

Yes I could but find that to be a big waste of ammo. Much more conservative and useful to have them separated out.

I can take care of bombers for the most part with MG as all we have to do is get them to drop their bombs, I try to save the cannon rounds for fighters.

Ugh not having much luck with cannons on another button, flew right into the trees during a soft target attack mission trying to use that way, only 2nd mission in the new career I had to start. Pilot was captured and is history. Little awkward trying to use that way. I needs my flip trigger.

Virpil had me send a pic of the broken trigger, they are going to get a replacement sent out. 

Hopefully soon as I am really missing having that extra trigger.

Very nice!!

 

Does that throttle still have the same mounting hole pattern as the Warthog throttle?

I already have a Monster Tech Mount I use with my Warthog throttle.

Awesome, thanks for the info. Glad to hear my pricey Monster Tech Mount can still be used with it.

Purchasing of VPC products will now be much easier, with faster, cheaper and more reliable delivery via DPD. Orders will no longer be required to pass through customs, and instead will be delivered directly to your door. View more delivery information here: https://virpil-controls.eu/delivery-info

 

Payments will be processed by Braintree payments (a PayPal company). Debit and Credit card payments can be processed directly on our site for convenience. VIRPIL Controls will not see nor store any payment information and it is handled directly by Braintree. We will accept VISA, Mastercard, AMEX and Maestro payment cards, with PayPal activating later this week.

  • www.virpil-controls.eu - European Union (Supported Countries)

  • www.virpil-controls.by - Rest of the World

 

www.virpil.by will initially continue to serve our customers worldwide, however from April 30th it will be changed to serving EurAsEC only.

 

In addition to the opening of the new EU webstore - on April 16, 2018 pre-orders for the long awaited VPC devices will open as scheduled:

These products can be pre-ordered with a discount of 10%. All existing VPC MongoosT-50 owners (grip, base or flightstick) will receive an additional 5% discount code for a total discount of 15%. Of course, as always, lucky members of the VPC FC will receive an additional 5% on top as well for a total potential discount of 20%!

 

All users will automatically receive the 10% pre-order discount. If you are an existing MT-50 owner, please send your order number and serial number to support@virpil.com to receive your additional 5% discount coupon. VPC FC discounts will be calculated automatically at the checkout.

 

VPCFC members will be required to sign up for a new account on the VIRPIL Controls EU webstore, and contact support@virpil.com to reassign the VPCFC status. Please ensure you use the same email address that you originally signed up to the VPCFC with.

Thanks for the update and the great news!

 

A few questions:

 

I had an account in the "old" shop already (when I bought the T50 stick and base), it doesn't work in the new EU shop so I created a new account. Now in the new account with the same details as before, it doesn't show any previous orders. How should I place my order and get the discount ? Just place the order now aor should i email supprot for a code ?

 

Also any idea on expected delivery dates yet ?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Doc

► 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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

Thanks for the update.

 

Should we place the order without waiting for the "current owner extra 5% discount" or should we wait to get a code to apply at check out ? Only reason I'm asking is because I have emailed support for this but (understandingly) haven't heard back and I'd hate it if while waiting for such a response I end up facing an "out of stock" or similar situation.

Throttle looks great, but since I have been waiting for the stick I paid for to ship since 3/3/2018, I won't be pre-ordering.

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 :)
