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.

Only drawback is the price, the base is another 300 USD. Dual stick users are looking at a 800 USD investment give or take a few dollars. That's a lot of money for an input device.

And for something predominantly plastic as well. Not to say that plastic is bad, but if I had to place bets on whether a metal or plastic stick is going to last longer being used day in and day out, my money is on the metal.

Personally I've been eyeballing the Virpil sticks. The base construction seems outstanding, but these are expensive as well. I'm going to hold off until there is more SC content before I make a decision on this.

Yeah, I like the Virpil Constellation, but it's missing too many things for me.  This one seems to fit the bill a little better. It's too bad about the plastic, but I've had durable plastic joysticks before.  Those CH Flighsticks are pretty indestructible.

      Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC.  Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making.  Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline.  Cant wait to see what you guys are running!  
      I've already posted this on my profile but I'll start anyway.
