VPC MongoosT-50CM3 Flightstick Base
Introducing the 3rd generation MongoosT-50 Flightstick Base!
The MongoosT-50CM3 Flightstick Base builds on the standard set by the previous MongoosT-50 Bases, with further refined build quality and the inclusion of independently adjustable clutch dampers which, just like the axis pretensioners, can be adjusted on-the-fly without dismantling the base.
These clutch dampers can be used to control the center return behaviour of both the X and Y axis independently. These high quality clutches can be adjusted to apply a light force on the axis allowing you to more easily apply steady and precise control to the flightstick, minimising the risk of unintended deviations. Smoothly lining up a target, or coming in for aerial refuelling has just become easier!
The clutches can be adjusted further to even hold the flightstick in position after being released. This allows for helicopter pilots to apply a lighter touch and easier control of rotary wing aircraft without fighting the return force of a typical flightstick. This feature also brings exciting possibilities for our space-sim pilots - in dual stick cockpits, the clutches can be independently adjusted to allow the flightstick to stay in position along the Y axis, perfect for engine control duty, while allowing the X axis to be adjusted for other inputs!
The VPC MongoosT-50CM3 Base has a smaller deflection angle from the center versus the VPC WarBRD Base, this allows it to maintain a practical and comfortable arc length even when using long extensions.
The base mechanism features a premium all-metal construction, using high quality, high strength D16T duralumin.
The VPC MongoosT-50CM3 has independently adjustable axes, with 3 spring weights and 5 cam profiles provided with every base.
★ Standard (Installed from factory)
★ AviaSim - Hard Center (Non-Linear)
★ AviaSim - Soft Center (Non-Linear) (Installed from factory)
★ AviaSim - No Center (Non-Linear)
★ CosmoSim - Soft Center (Linear)
★ CosmoSim - No Center (Linear)
The stick response can be further adjusted via the axes 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.
High levels of accuracy are provided by the onboard VPC Controller and VPC Contactless Digital Proximity Sensors. Movements as small as 0.006º are detected.
The VPC MongoosT-50CM3 Flightstick Base features the same grip connector featured on existing VPC bases. This ensures complete compatibility with VPC's previous and future grips without requiring any adapters or modifications.
Aimed at the professional virtual pilot, it is recommended to combine the VPC MongoosT-50CM3 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-50CM3 Base requires mounting and is not suitable for desktop use.
The VPC MongoosT-50CM3 Base is compatible with the following grips:
★ VPC MongoosT-50 Grip (All Variants)
★ VPC Constellation DELTA Grip
★ VPC Constellation ALPHA Grip
★ VPC WarBRD Grip
★ VPC V.F.X Grip
