New Virpil Throttle - VPC Mongoos T-50 CM

Recommended Posts

Nice improvements in throttle grips design.

 

Seems they figure that a 'flight game controller' should be adapted for game needs and not follow 99% of the design of that "badass 5th generation fighter". :)

I was a bit jealous until i read the part where it says they got rid of the detents. That is for me what takes the throttle to the next level. 

Im totally over it now.

And yes has an analogue mini-stick.

Available in July.

Now this one I will likely get.

 

Looks very interesting. Can´t wait for the first review, because it looks like a good addition to my Ravcore Javelin  https://www.ravcore.com/produkty/javelin/

If you end up getting this and want to sell the warthog throttle let me know.

Oh this kinda bugs me, I bought the T-50, the T-50CM looks a good bit better but not enough to justify buying it again. 

😕

Yeah kind of the way I feel about the new Mongoos base and stick.

The throttle as I don't have one yet, is tempting to finally replace the Warthog throttle.

I replaced my Warthog with it, massive improvement over an already great throttle.

I'm so glad you posted this.

 

I bit the bullet, and finally purchased one of the old throttles, literally the day that the new one was announced... If I didn't check this forum, I would have never known I just purchased an outdated version.

 

I cancelled my order, and now am waiting for the new release.

 

I'm really considering the new MongoosT-50 CM2 grip, with the WarBRD base. I like the VKB MCG Pro too, because it's not as high on the desk. But... The VKB wastes two potentially very valuable hats for damn analog sticks.... On the other hand, I love the way my Black Mamba Mk. III feels, it fits my hand perfectly, but I desire more buttons.

 

Errr. Decision, decisions.

Probable Kosmosima grip is the ideal "upgrade" for Mamba - when/if VKB make compatible connector version, 

has more HAT's and buttons, and is low profile, with ergonomics optimized for desktop use.

Only downside is that don't have the analog lever like in MCG's and VPC T50's, very convenient for planes with "differential brakes"(e.g.IL-2).

It's just a shame, because if VKB made a MCG Pro with hats replacing the analog sticks, it would be the most perfect flight stick ever created.

 

Do you know if the top POV stick can be used as a 4-way hat? I could probably live with that.

Yes.

I use the top POV as buttons, and then if I press and hold for 3 seconds I have it set to become relative axis.

What do you use the relative axis for?

Gunsight adjustments in the Spit.

Oh, nice idea!

 

I think I'm going with this stick. Maybe in the future VKB will release a modified MCG grip that replaces the other analog. One can only dream. :)

You can assign buttons to an axis.

See here for how to add a button to the brake lever axis.

Yes, not sure but think that in  MCG  PRO default profile mini-sick has two modes,  analog axes and HAT, switch between with mini-stick press button.

 

Anyway their VKB DevCfg software allow leave only the HAT mode (+ center push button)  if want.

 

The only thing that you miss is the "click" feel when using mini-stick as HAT.

 

Can set mini-stick axes as incremental (without return to center) and use as "Stabilizer Adjust" in IL-2:Bo'X, by press (up or down) and hold until trimmed.

New version of Virpil VPC Configuration Tool.

 

Now you can split the throttle in two devices, one with buttons up to # 32 buttons and the other in the buttons above #32.

So can map all button in game controls GUI without need use keyboard emulation using mode selector, what will surpass Il-2:Bo'X' 64 buttons support.
