Hello VIRPILs!

We would like to introduce our brand new community forum platform:

https://forum.virpil.com

We realised that our old forum wasn't allowing us to connect with the community as much as we'd like. So by popular demand, we've launched this new forum to better serve as a central platform for all VIRPIL Controls news, discussions, tech support and more.

While the vast majority of forum users have been carried over to the new platform, there may be some that were missed. If your account is not available you can simply create a new account. If your account is missing the VPC Founder's Club status, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We would love to hear from everyone on any suggestions on how we can further improve the VPC community!

Regards,

VIRPIL Controls Team

Hello VIRPILs,

We are very pleased to announce the launch of our new merged webstore combining our EU and Rest of World webstores - www.virpil-controls.eu.

This will bring the benefits of PayPal, Braintree card payments and courier delivery options provided via TNT/FedEx to our rest of world customers!

All prices will now be shown excluding VAT in Euros. Customers within the EU will have VAT added during the checkout automatically whereas our rest of world customers will pay the ex VAT price.

We will continue work to expand the VPC distribution network to offer the best ordering experience possible for all of our customers.

Our complete flightstick controllers product pages have also changed - you can now use a drop down menu on the product page of each base to add a compatible grip. Flightstick bundles (grip + base) are offered with a 10% discount that is automatically calculated on checkout. This offer applies to any order that includes at least 1 x VPC base and 1 x VPC grip!

Finally, we must announce some big news regarding our VPC MongoosT-50 base; this was released as our first high-end base in mid 2017, we are incredibly proud that so many users are enjoying their MT-50 flightsticks and we have received fantastic feedback from the community since it’s release.

We feel it is now time to move on and we will be launching the FINAL VPC MongoosT-50 base sale! Our remaining stock of VPC MongoosT-50 bases will be available with a 10% discount - so be quick, as this will be the last opportunity to purchase this base!

There is still a small number of orders from our old rest of world webstore that are pending dispatch, these orders are currently in the process of being prepped and will be sent out out ASAP over the next couple of weeks. Existing orders are our priority and our webstore will only be restocked after these orders are completed.

Hello VIRPILs!

To further improve the ordering experience for our worldwide customers we have decided to move our worldwide store from our Belarus HQ www.virpil-controls.by to our distribution center in the EU. 

Benefits to our worldwide customers will be:

  • Better payment method options via PayPal and Braintree. 
  • Faster shipping via TNT/FedEx. 
  • Unified ordering experience with our EU customers. 

 

This change will also allow VPC HQ to focus entirely on production leading to more stock being available and orders being fulfilled faster!

From today (17th September 2018), our worldwide store will no longer accept new orders and it will re-open again on 1st October at www.virpil-controls.eu.

All outstanding orders on our current worldwide store will be completed before 1st October!

Regards,

VIRPIL Controls Team

Hello VIRPILs!

The VPC team have been working tirelessly to catch up with the existing backlog of pre-orders.

We have been carefully reviewing the production process at our new factory and we can now calculate a timeframe for the remaining open orders.

After a number of very large batches have gone out, we have now fulfilled ALL original pre-orders to our EU store (up to July 9th). A final batch will be required to catch up with the back-orders placed after this date (July 9th to August 31st) which we will aim to dispatch to our EU store by mid-October.

Before that however, we are now focused entirely on our worldwide store which currently has about 30% of original pre-orders fulfilled (mostly mid-late April). We are aiming to have all worldwide store orders up until July 9th, dispatched by mid to late September.

Due to the delays, the VPC WarBRD orders have continued to receive the free WarBRD Cosmosim cams past the original pre-order date, however as of 1st September the VPC WarBRD Cosmosim cams will become a separately purchasable accessory on our webstores.

As always, we are truly thankful for everyone’s patience and support we’ve received over these past few months. It has been an intense learning experience for us logistically with our new factory and fulfilment locations, and we will certainly be able to improve the experience for the future based on this!

Hello VIRPILs!

We would like to issue a new update regarding the status of the pre-order dispatches. Anyone who has requested an update via email/ticket will already know - but we would like to confirm via announcement also!

We’ve been working through the pre-order queue which opened in mid-April, from the start. There was a very large number of day one pre-orders, so progress through the queue has been slower than we would have liked up till this point.

As some of you have already noticed, the VPC MongoosT-50 Base has recently been marked out of stock on both webstores - this is due to our entire team, production efforts included, being shifted entirely to focus on catching up with the pre-order dispatches ASAP.

We are very pleased to confirm that a large batch of pre-order stock has been prepared and scheduled for dispatch next week. After this batch the total number of pre-order dispatches completed to date will be around the following:

  • - VPC WarBRD Base: 70-80%
  • - VPC Constellation Delta Grip: 70-80%
  • - VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle: 40-50%


The remaining pre-orders will be sent within the following 2-3 weeks (to mid-August).

Thank you to everyone who has been patient with us as we've caught up! As always, for anyone who has any questions or concerns please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thank you for your continued support,

Once again we would like to confirm the current pre-order production status with the community.

As stated in our last announcement - we had tentatively scheduled the dispatch of our new pre-order products on the 9th July.

While we are happy to confirm that production has already been in full swing and we are now right on the cusp of sending orders out for dispatch. While we unfortunately won’t be able to start dispatches tomorrow, packaging and final preparations have begun. VPC WarBRD and Constellation Delta pre-orders should be in the courier’s hands by the next week (starting 16th), with MT-50 Throttle pre-orders following shortly afterwards.

Now - we understand the frustration with a delay of any scale. So with this extra time, we’ve actually been working on an additional gift on top of the previously offered dust cover/discount code.

We’re pleased to confirm that due to many requests from our pre-order customers, we’ll be including a set of specially designed cosmosim cams for all VPC WarBRD pre-orders, completely free! The WarBRD cosmosim cams will be available for future orders as a separately available accessory.

As we are now at the end of the pre-order period, this is the last opportunity to take advantage of our 10% discount pre-order sale! This sale event will close on the midnight of 9th July (GMT +3).

As always, for anyone who has any questions, concerns, or simply wishes to cancel their pre-order (no questions asked!) please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
