    Lol this I have not tackled yet .. maybe tonight. I do like the kg12 grip quite a bit but I wish that they were truly "quick swap" but it sounds like you have to flash the memory in the black box every time you were to switch grips, or am I reading that wrong? So far I am impressed though, my accuracy has definitely improved.

    As if I would insinuate........that a technical person of your magnitude would do that.

    I merely meant that, as the very first UK 'Lee Marvin' Gunfighter had now taken up residence at Seas Villas, there was cause for a celebration.

    I shall now 'rejoin the circuit'..........Bzzzzzzzzz!

    Looks like a good grip.

    Im using the Warthog grip, but i suspect a lighter grip woudl allow a lot more flexibility in springs and whatnot.

    Loving this stick. !

    If VKB allowed payment by paypal I would snap one of those Mongoose babies up. That way I can get one without the Obergruppenfhurer (Wife) knowing I have spent the deposit for our hols next year and I can put it back later however I would need to speak to someone on ts who has one first before I take my life in my hands and get one my testes and blunt knife are the option if caught

    Re: VKB Gunfighter

    I am intrigued by this grip, Virpil got same and it is Warthog compatible too.
    The base interest me too, the clutch thingy making it non centering was to me most interesting.
    Hope it got long live quality

    Their store in Aliexpress (VKBSim) will accept - but is not properly set for now, after all they have no production for sell.

    The grip in above picture - MCG PRO, is not compatible with Warthog bases - since has more buttons and axis that Warthog base can handle.

    The model compatible with Warthog bases is MCG-TM with the same number of buttons/axis than their F-16'ish grip.

    The clutches seem a bit misleading to me .. I was expecting something I could tighten all the way for a non return situation flying helicopters but tightening them to that point really makes the stick unpleasant to use, maybe I'm doing something wrong. It seems they are there just to minimize oscillation at best.

    Re: VKB Gunfighter

    The idea behind "damper" - through grease (Warthog, Gladiator "vanila") or clutch (Gunfighter) is minime spring oscillation effect, this aid in some way in aim, as stick don't tend move more (due spring effect) that you want. Anyway is subjective, some people will see benefits, other not.

    Ok That made it less interesting, I fly mainly DCS helicopters and WW2 airplanes. I have a hydraulic damped stick witch stay put where you leave it. And fine adjusting is done without moving the dampers. It require muzzle memory to get the stick centered when you fly airplane, but that come rather quick. Real airplanes stick center itself caused by airflow to the control surface when you are in speed, so for simmers flying exclusive airplanes , a self centering stick is a advantage and just as "realistic" if it is not sticky. Flying choppers a non centering stick is highly recommended , but not mandatory.

    I haven't bothered with the dampers at all. I have them fully released.

    To be honest not being able to adjust then without doismantling everything just sounds like more hassel than it's worth. I have the dismantle and rebuild down to a fine art now, what with all the cam and spring combinations ive tried... but even so... I could be there all month trying to get that "just right".

    I think it really needs an external adjuster to make it useful. Nice idea... glad its there, I'm not using it though.
