Hello VIRPILs!

The VIRPIL Controls team has been working non-stop preparing our latest products for dispatch - the VPC V.F.X Grip and the VPC WarBRD, ACE-1 and ACE-2 Rudder Pedals.

We’re pleased to confirm that these items are in production at the VIRPIL Controls factory and we’re incredibly excited to get them out into everyone’s hands. The remaining pre-orders are scheduled to dispatch out on 15th October - keep an eye out for your shipping notification!

We would also like to announce some new additions to the VIRPIL Controls lineup!

Introducing the VPC MongoosT-50CM2 Throttle

This is the latest revision of our popular VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle which includes an all new design with a number of changes based on the feedback we’ve received from the community:

  • - The overall dimensions of the throttle have been reduced and now match the form factor of our upcoming control panels.
  • - The throttle lever arc angle has been increased by 20 degrees to allow for more physical position precision of the throttle levers.
  • - The throttle no longer has a base plate, but instead has removable support legs with rubber feet for desktop use.
  • - The detachable USB and AUX connections from our MongoosT-50CM2 Base Unit have been carried over to the throttle.
  • - The metal toggle switches have been changed to larger toggle switches to offer a more “realistic” response.
  • - The RGB backlighting has been removed and we are using new customisable push buttons which feature direct RGB lighting. The buttons feature a removable transparent cap, so you can insert your own inlays. 
  • - The toggle switch on the left side throttle handle has been changed to a large encoder dial.

More information can be found on our webstore:

We have also added an adapter plate that allows the VPC MongoosT-50CM2 Throttle to be attached to mounts designed for the TMW Throttle.

VPC 200mm Curved Flightstick Extension

After much demand from the community and extensive testing, we’re now pleased to add the VPC 200mm Flightstick Extension to our catalogue.

This extension features a s-curve and a slight forward tilt on the grip which makes it excellent for center mount setups with our VPC MongoosT-50CM Base Unit!

The new 200mm extension can also be combined with our existing 50mm/75mm/100mm extensions to create the perfect size for your setup.

Accepting Pre-orders Now!

With the unveiling of these new items, we’re once again opening the possibility for pre-orders. We had originally started opening infrequent and time pre-order windows based on community demand, but unfortunately due to restrictions with our payment gateways we’ve been forced to use bank transfer payments for these orders.

We’re very happy to announce that we are now able to accept pre-order payments using credit/debit cards directly on our webstore! We hope that this will greatly increase the convenience of the pre-ordering process and allow more people to get the items that they want to complete their VIRPIL setups!

Pre-orders will be opening on 27th September at 6pm GMT and will remain open for 2 weeks until the 11th October.
