The VPC Team have been assembling, testing, packing and dispatching the VPC MongoosT-50 pre-orders daily since 03/08/2017, we are now close to fulfilling all pre-orders. Some virpils have already received their orders and we hope they are enjoying the VPC MongoosT-50!

 

This week, one user had brought to our attention a flaw with some of their axis cams. This defect resulted in the joystick feel not being completely smooth. Upon further investigation some of the cams received from the factory were not up the standard we expect. We have now removed these cams from the remaining assembled VPC MongoosT-50 Bases to get them replaced by the factory.

 

Earlier batches are not affected, however we urge anyone who has issues with their cams to contact us  at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will get them replaced ASAP.

 

This has put a slightly delay on the remaining pre-order batches. We will be restarting shipping today with the new cams and the remaining handful of batches will be dispatched this week!

After much anticipation, and tireless around-the-clock work from every member of the VPC team, we are pleased to announce that the VPC MongoosT-50 Flightstick and Base pre-orders are shipping as of today!
