Thread: Virpil WarBRD and Mongoos T50 Throttle are now up for pre-order.

  1. #91
    DCS is quite intense, I find the CH Pro throttle really is underwhelming for that purpose (though perfect for ED). The Warthog throttle is almost like a bare minimum requirement. I already own the Warthog and CH Pro, so holding out for the VPC throttle is not so bad, but the VPC will end up at one of my gaming rig locations, and the CH+Warthog at the other, so I can still play ED and DCS at both.

    The Warthog throttle, oddly, I find kind sucks for ED. Too many switches and ED doesn't allow "press and hold" assignment to as many functions as I'd like.

    Aye.
    I'm sort of having a bit of hard time thinking the warthog is any good for Elite.
    And similar with the virpil.

    I Just think spacey arcade games prefer a flat sliding throttle with hardly any resistance so the same would probably go for the virpil throttle as well.

    Other way around though..
    The travel on the ch is a bit short. And I have had to calibrate even shorter at both ends just to make sure I hit 0-100, and a lot of noisy jumping around.

    That's actually enough to kill you in a huey I think.
    But in ed it's no problem. I mostly just go full force in there anyway, and use my inverter button to slow down.

    I'm still considering another virpil delta stick for a dual stick setup as well

    Got the warthog today.
    Haven't set it up yet but so far I can tell this should be brilliant for DCS and aims.
    But quite terrible for ED.

    I'm keeping the ch pro throttle for Elite so no loss
    Talk about a luxury problem.
    Think I could use the warthog as a button box.
    Maybe set the two throttle axis as landing gear and cargo hold

    I have thought about dual sticks, but I've dropped a bomb on controllers of late, and I need to wins back. I've allowed for a VPC throttle once the analog version is out, but that's it for me for a while. Maybe a grip...


    The VPC throttle with the Analog stick may work, though, really, if CH made a Pro Throttle with magnetic sensors, and kept everything else as is, I'd buy it specifically for ED. The Current CH Pro just does such a nice job. It could do with a few small adjustments, but overall... Niice.


    Speaking of VPC, there are pics posted on the DCS forums, and Reddit, I believe, of a few hundred throttles ready to pack, or already boxed, ready to ship.

    Yeah made me REALLY want one.

    But yeah I really need to stop soon.
    I must have spent almost a full grand now... o.0

    And now I'm sort of getting heavier into dcs as well.
    And I want the gazelle, the f18, the av-8, the a10...
    And of course the extra maps...
    That's Like 300 right there.

    Currently buzzing around in a Huey, only got a few hours in but I think I'm doing ok.

    I'm not entirely sure.
    But perhaps someone has done a mod on the ch gear using the Leo Bodnar Hall effect sensor...

    Should not be impossible.

    Yup.
