VPC MongoosT-50 Base
Our engineers have designed the next generation of flightstick bases, allowing virtual pilots to control their aircraft with unmatched levels of precision.
Both the X/Y axes operate on their own independent cams, with co-axially mounted compression springs to provide completely separated loading forces no matter how the stick is moved. Made from aircraft-grade duralumin, the VPC MongoosT-50 Base gimbal is built to last. Due to our gimbal's unique design, it is particularly well suited for providing uncompromised stick feel, even when using long flightstick extensions.
Offering completely adjustable axes, 3 spring types are included:
★ 2 x Aerobatic (Light Tension)
★ 2 x Standard (Medium Tension)
★ 2 x Hardcore (Heavy Tension)
Also included are 3 cam profiles:
★ 2 x Hard Center
★ 2 x Soft Center
★ 2 x No Center
The cam profiles are designed to provide a progressive tension response further away from the center - this can help mimic atmospheric effects and help the pilot fly their aircraft right on the edge. For space sim pilots who desire a linear tension response, the VPC MT-50 CosmoSim Cams are available separately.
The stick response can be further adjusted via the spring pre-tensioners. Accessed via the top plate of the base, these can be adjusted without disassembling the base - after choosing your desired springs and cams, you can dial in the response exactly to your liking with the pre-tensioners.
The maximum stick deflection is 15º+15º on both axes which provides a range suited for high levels of accuracy without compromising practicality.
High levels of accuracy are provided by the onboard VPC Controller and VPC Contactless Digital Proximity Sensors. Offering a total of 5,000 steps across the stick's travel, movements as small as 0.006º are detected.
Aimed at the professional virtual pilot, it is recommended to combine the VPC MongoosT-50 Base with VPC Flighstick Extensions (sold separately) and mount with the VPC Desk Mount (sold separately) for the best home cockpit experience.
Note: The VPC MongoosT-50 Base requires mounting and is not suitable for desktop use.
Note: The cam screws are held in place with threadlocker from the factory. First time cam change (especially after transit) can be greatly eased by warming up the cam screws (e.g hairdryer or soldering iron) for a few minutes.
The VPC MongoosT-50 Base is compatible with the following grips:
★ VPC MongoosT-50 Grip
★ VPC Constellation Delta Grip
★ VPC WarBRD Grip
★ TM Warthog Grip
