https://virpil.com/en/shop/grips/vpc-co ... vina-tabIn development or something, aimed for space games.

Their other stick has the same pin and threading as the warthog base so you can pop it on.
Or buy their significantly better base...

Might need something though since it's got more axis than the regular warthog, extra ministick and optional twist.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

been drooling over those sticks for awhile.

pricy though.

At least if you include the gimbal mechanism, but is hailed as more precise and generally better than the warthog.
But with all parts machined from hardened aluminum it should be fairly robust.

Be careful there. :roll:

Are you sure the switch is dead and it's not a wiring problem?
It's time to give this another go.

Yep.......

Because if you wiggle the switch from side to side when in the down position it intermittently registers......

Plus the plug was in the PCB correctly and all other axis register.......

I have not looked at the connection to the switch itself tough as that would mean a full disassemble.......

Which I'm trying to avoid until I hear what Thrustmaster come back with.......

Yeah that has been tempting me as well.
Especially for games that has a direct force feedback api it can use that instead of just the sound channel feed. Like project cars, but not elite. for elite it will just use sound signals.
Less hassle than bolting transducers to your desk chair.

If I did that to mine I'm sure it would have been shaken apart in a matter of days.

Funny enough just read that a moment ago......

Even downloaded the T-50 manual and printed out the button assignment page for a look at.....LOL

Well.....

1 x T-50
2 x Desk Mounts
2 x TMW Adapter Plates
+ Delivery
= £262

If they took PayPal they would be on their way now.........

We'll see what Thrustmaster come up with......

Then I might have to break my piggy bank open.......

:D

That can't include the gimbal, just the mongoose+gimbal and the extension kit is twice that.
Well, after taxes.
