    Upcoming hotas gear

    In case you didn't know, there are two eastern european companies making some really nice flight controllers. They are VKB and Virpil. Each one has a variety of sticks available now, and grips/throttles coming soon. The ones that interest me are:

    The new combat stick from VKB. Just look at it!

    Virpil have a nice stick, the MongoosT50 available now. Based on a russian design.

    And the Virpil combat throttle, which is announced to be in our hands by Christmas... hopefully! Not much info on it yet, but this thread has a prototype pictured. The consumer version will have unknown switches on the body also.

    Pre-ordered the new combat grip from VKB, with base plate and extension:

    It's pricey, but looks oh so sweet. An early xmas present to myself. Starts shipping Nov 1st. Can't wait!
    I'll put up a review if people are interested.

    Wow, now it seems VKB and Heatblur are doing an F-14 stick!

    So that's a new TM F18, VKB F14, Virpil T50, VKB Modern Combat Grip... and throttles being announced "soon". Spoiled for choice

    And VKB have said their throttles will be modular, so it could even be that they have grips for different aircraft on that in future.
