I recently purchased new Virpil WarBRD joysticks and was hoping to sell my used Thrustmaster TWCS throttle and T16000M (FCS HOTAS Set), CH Pro Pedals, and my VKB Gladiator Mk. II Joystick.
They all worked great, I was just hoping to upgrade / change my setup. They are still like new in the boxes. The T16000M has both left and right grip adapters.
CH Pro Pedals - $80
FCS HOTAS - $90
VKB Gladiator Mk. II - $80 SOLD
Virpil recently posted their 2 years in review where they also announced they'll be releasing their new WarBRD grip on 23rd January 2019.
This is their current lineup of products where you see:
WarBRD Base with a Constellation Delta Grip Desk Mount MT-50 Throttle MT-50 base(now discontinued) with a MT-50CM Grip
Pictures of the new WarBRD grip:
Its specs are:
Dual Stage Trigger 1 x 8-way POV Hat (+ Push) 2 x Momentary Push Buttons 4-Way (+ Push) Thumb Hat All Metal Twist Axis with VPC Contactless Sensor Configurable Mode LED So it basically has 2 hats with push, 2 buttons, dual stage trigger and a twist axis with contactless sensor. It looks like a good space sim grip for me even it lacks in the button/hat department a bit. I plan to pick it up when I can in combination with a WarBRD base and recently released cosmosim no center cams for WarBRD base. VPC products tend to be out of stock yet they restock every 2-3 weeks and sell out in hours. If you're interested in picking one, you might need to set an alarm to their restocking schedule. Their next restock will be on 7th January 2019, 6 AM - 9 AM GMT.
I've been looking on Craigslist for a good gaming pc so I can buy into SC.
I found the following for $350, can anyone tell me if they think this would be good enough to run the game, even if it has to be on low graphics settings that's ok. Thanks for any advice.
Windows 10 Pro
Corsair TX650 PSU
Geforce GTX 650 TI
Samsung 840 EVO 128GB SSD
2 Western Digital 640GB HDDs
ASUS PBP67 Motherboard
Intel i5-2500k Quad Core CPU
Steel Series Wired headset
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.

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
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
