UIV, VKB owner and chief engineer, has dropped a little sneak peek on another forum, and since it's out in the open now, here's a couple of teaser images of the VKB Kosmosima SCG (Space Combat Grip). Of course, it's also very much usable in DCS. Please be aware that this is not an announcement, but a little something to see for those that have been waiting for the Kosmosima design to be revealed: A few key points of info I was given so far: - Comes in both left- and right-handed versions (SCG-L and SCG-R) - Both have a contactless twist adapter built-in by default (can be hard-locked via screw) - Compatible with Gunfighter and Gladiator Pro bases - Both have two LED indicators; one single-color, the second RGB (operation of the LED indicators can be customized via software) - Both have dual-stage triggers - All hat switches on both grips have push functionality, and one can toggle between analog/digital mode via long push - Both come with a detachable palm rest - Planned retail price is less than $99 (per grip) Please be aware that I don't have any further info and details at this time (and no ETA). Once I get more updates down the line, I will try and keep everyone informed. Source: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=3539012#post3539012
After a long time of research and configuring what I believe to be the best set up for Star Citizen and general gaming and purpose, it's almost ready to start the process. I was always intrigued by the idea of a simpit but never liked the ergonomics until I came across this post and the set up going on: https://imgur.com/a/GMG9E I believe this is the set up I'm going after. Just wanted to know if there was anything I should add to this list besides the Volair Simpit, large center display and two alternate displays: VKB Space Sim Joysticks https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/50174/thread/vkb-space-combat-grip-joystick VKB Throttle https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=199002 Corsair Dark Core RGB SE w/ Amazon Qi Charger https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Gaming-Mice/DARK-CORE-RGB-SE-Performance-Wired-Wireless-Gaming-Mouse-with-Qi®-Wireless-Charging/p/CH-9315311-NA https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CVWTDM5/ref=emc_b_5_t Is there anything else I should be looking at? Eventually there will be a VR headset and I will most likely be picking up the FOIP camera for SC.
Boildown posted a topic in HardwareSo some of us have heard of a another hard-to-get joystick option from a company known as VKB Industries. They made a hand-crafted joystick called the Black Mamba that is widely regarded higher than the HOTAS Warthog, and also have some highly-regarded rudder pedals. Months ago they said they announced a new line of upcoming products and an upcoming US-based distributor. Read more about that here: http://www.vkb-sim.pro/viewtopic.php?t=1947 The reason for this post is: Their online-ordering for the new products is finally live, and you can buy their new rudder pedals and joysticks: http://www.gostratojet.com/index.html Opinion: This is pretty exciting stuff, I already have a Warthog but I look forward to reading some reviews. I'm not above selling my Warthog HOTAS and getting something better. The price of their entry-level stick seems primed to put CH out of the gaming business... I have no idea why you'd buy an 8-bit Fighterstick over one of these, unless the build quality of these are far worse than their previous products.
I have a bnib Cobra M5 and a used one along with a Pro Throttle if anyone is interested. Not sure what I want for them, so shoot me some offers. You can email me at email@example.com. Also you check jncrymal on ebay for seller feedback. Not using Ebay anymore. I can no longer use a joystick due to an injury so these are collecting dust and I'm stuck with a mouse and keyboard. I'm located in Columbia, SC if anyone is close and wants to take a look. Accepting only Paypal.
