Some new controller products - enter your finds here

Recommended Posts

A friend tipped me off to VirPil.com, producer/sellers of some joysticks and throttle accessories -- the sticks are both for left and right handed use

catalogue: https://virpil.com/en/shop



The sticks require a separate base to work, which VirPil also sells. They also have desk mounts, stick extensions, mounting plates and dust cover.

Here's the thing - they are NOT cheap

The fact that most wives would rip the testes off their husband if he dared to build a Simpit with these joysticks does’t Help either. You really need a dedicated desk/simchair onto which the 2 joysticks/joystick and throttle are mounted in a fixed way. You would most likely also need some kind of swiveling plateau for your keyboard and mouse. All this stuff has looks which aren’t very wife friendly;)

Submitting for consideration, though something I've never used, or anything like it:

Video of first review I've found here, time marked to the Elite Dangerous section:

Edit for transparency: I've just backed this. I'm definitely interested.

      Just saw this bad boy show up, its ambidextrous so would make for a great HOSAS item, too.

      I don't have any peripherals beyond a keyboard/mouse yet, so with the scroll wheel and analog stick on the stick it could work as a 1 unit solution. Has anyone tried a joystick and mouse for gimball aiming in SC?

      Hey all,
      So I've got a T.Flight Hotas X and I was curious if anyone else uses this setup that could give me an idea of their profile/keymapping? What other tools do you use for functionality in SC with your setup, if any?
      I feel like the stick itself is too stiff or too loose no matter what I do, and I feel like I have deadzones as well. Trying to figure out what I can do to fix that besides getting a new stick+throttle combo.

      It took some time to get my x52 pro working and relearning how to program it. As I was looking into star citizen there are a few command that I do not understand what it does or how/when to use it .
      STAR CITIZEN Tech Support - players helping players   MadWolfie@MadWolfie Discussion Control command and what does it do?
        1) IFCS safeties. 
      2) Gforce safeties
      3) command level stability
      4) ESP
      5) Reticle Focus 
      6) Reticle mode
      7) i heard people talking about decup. How does that work? 
      What do those command do for your ship and best way/time to use them? 
      Pm me if you can answer some of these command, bit do not want to reply here.

      So I've been rocking an okay joystick for a while, a Logitech Extreme 3D. It works well enough in Freespace 2, but in SC it's not precise enough and I can't aim well at all. I've moved to a mouse and keyboard setup since, and have drastically improved my combat aim. My question is if a better joystick might yield better results? I see people mentioning HOTAS controllers and dual stick controllers as options and was looking for feedback from the community.
