    ***Virpil Has a TomCat Grip Pre-Order Up***

    Hello VIRPILs!
    We’re extremely excited to announce the upcoming pre-order availability of our VPC WarBRD and ACE Rudder Pedals, as well as the VPC V.F.X Grip! In this 3-part announcement we would like to introduce you to these new items as well as provide information on the pre-ordering process.
    VPC V.F.X Grip
    The VPC V.F.X Grip is our latest addition to our expanding lineup of interchangeable grips and our first Western fighter grip! This grip is based on controls found in the aircraft developed for the Naval Fighter Experimental program.

    The VPC V.F.X Grip features a number of unique features:

    • Dual-stage trigger
    • 4-way weapon select w/ push
    • DLC thumbwheel axis - spring loaded return to the center (Contactless digital sensor)
    • Paddle lever axis w/ physical push button at 100% (Contactless digital sensor)
    • 8-way ungated POV hat w/ push
    • 3 x momentary push buttons
    • All metal twist axis (Contactless digital sensor)
    • Twist axis lockout
    • Compatible with all VPC bases
    • Compatible with TMW base (Twist axis, Paddle lever and DLC thumbwheel will respond as buttons)

    During the development of the V.F.X Grip, we’ve built on past feedback we’ve received from the community to provide the best grip experience to date! This includes using digital contactless sensors for all grip input axis, providing unparalleled input accuracy.
    We also wanted to satisfy as many VIRPILs as possible regarding twist axis input - after discussing with members from the community we know that a twist axis can be quite a divisive addition! The VPC V.F.X Grip includes our all metal twist axis mechanism (with VPC contactless digital sensor) for those without pedals, however we have now implemented a twist lockout for those who wish to block this axis entirely.
    We’re also aware that many VIRPILs use our grips on their existing TMW base units, because of this we’ve done our best to ensure that the grip will operate on the TMW base with the caveat being that all grip axis (twist axis, DLC thumbwheel and paddle lever) will respond as button inputs instead due to limitations with the TM base units. For full grip functionality it will be necessary to use a VPC base!
    Product pages and pricing information will be posted on 21st June!

    That looks pretty awesome, and it even fits the Warthog base, which is great. It does look a bit too plastic to me (not sure if it actually is) and it is not cheap for just a baseless stick. If I was going to get another grip, which I am not seriously considering, I would go for the Hornet grip over this one.

    I couldn't help myself....I pre-ordered both this and The Hornet Stick....I do spend most of my DCS time in these two and The Harrier...Trying to justify my DCS Impulse buying

    Good stuf Patrick. Let us know what you think of them both when you get them. I am getting more and more tempted to get the Hornet stick, as I have finally started spending some hours in the Hornet in VR over the past few weeks, and I am absolutely loving it. I love all the missions that have been created for it, they are really in depth and immersive. I haven't done much in the F-14 yet apart from startups and carrier takeoffs, so looking forward to spending more hours in the F-14 too. I have so much to do in DCS World. I have never flown half the campaigns I have purchased for multiple aircraft. And now I'm thinking about getting the Harrier during the Summer sale......

    I will let you know what I think about the 2 grips,The Hornet grip should be out next month....while The V.F.X Grip could be as much as 3 months...maybe longer since a member of The DCS Community caught a mistake on the weapons selector.

    BTW...The Harrier is Amazing!!! and at 50% off is a steal!!

    Sounds great Rick. I don't do much multiplayer flight simming, or any really. Up until a few months ago I had only played a few hours in Eve Valkyrie which I got free with the Oculus Rift, and that is pretty much all multiplayer. Last September (? roughly) I bought Battlefield 1 after a workmate convinced me and now I play multiplayer in that about 2-3 hours every single night, and more on the weekends. I have never played any game so much as I have played multiplayer in BF1. I must give MP a go in DCS World one day, but I need to build up my single player hours first.

    Sounds great Patrick. I am envious

    I think you have convinced me regarding the Harrier. Trouble is it will probably be another 12 months before I jump in it. I still have several campaigns I want to do for the A-10C, Mirage, F-5E, Viggen, and I have LOTS of flying yet to do in the Hornet and Tomcat. I need to spend less time in Battlefield 1 and more in DCS World!
