Hello VIRPILs!

We’re extremely excited to announce the upcoming pre-order availability of our VPC WarBRD and ACE Rudder Pedals, as well as the VPC V.F.X Grip! In this announcement we would like to introduce you to these new items as well as provide information on the pre-ordering process.

VPC V.F.X Grip
The VPC V.F.X Grip is our latest addition to our expanding lineup of interchangeable grips and our first Western fighter grip! This grip is based on controls found in the aircraft developed for the Naval Fighter Experimental program. The VPC V.F.X Grip features a number of unique features and developments:


  • ★ Dual-stage trigger
  • ★ 4-way weapon select w/ push
  • ★ DLC thumbwheel axis - spring loaded return to the center (Contactless digital sensor)
  • ★ Paddle lever axis w/ physical push button at 100% (Contactless digital sensor)
  • ★ 8-way ungated POV hat w/ push
  • ★ 3 x momentary push buttons
  • ★ All metal twist axis (Contactless digital sensor)
  • ★ Twist axis lockout
  • ★ Compatible with all VPC bases
  • ★ Compatible with TMW base (Twist axis, Paddle lever and DLC thumbwheel will respond as buttons)


During the development of the V.F.X Grip, we’ve built on past feedback we’ve received from the community to provide the best grip experience to date! This includes using digital contactless sensors for all grip input axis, providing unparalleled input accuracy.

We also wanted to satisfy as many VIRPILs as possible regarding twist axis input - after discussing with members from the community we know that a twist axis can be quite a divisive addition! The VPC V.F.X Grip includes our all metal twist axis mechanism (with VPC contactless digital sensor) for those without pedals, however we have now implemented a twist lockout for those who wish to block this axis entirely.

We’re also aware that many VIRPILs use our grips on their existing TMW base units, because of this we’ve done our best to ensure that the grip will operate on the TMW base with the caveat being that all grip axis (twist axis, DLC thumbwheel and paddle lever) will respond as button inputs instead due to limitations with the TM base units. For full grip functionality it will be necessary to use a VPC base!

Product pages and pricing information will be posted on 21st June!

VPC Rudder Pedals
We’re pleased to confirm that our long awaited VPC Rudder Pedals lineup will also be available to pre-order!

Our rudder pedal line up will include the VPC WarBRD Rudder Pedals and the VPC ACE Rudder Pedals. These pedals are developed from the highly successful rudder pedal platform designed by our Chief Designer Roman Dorokhov (Baur) - creator of BRD devices.

Featuring all metal construction, cam centering mechanism and cast aluminium footplates with large solid rubber feet, the VPC Rudder Pedals provide an incredibly solid and enjoyable rudder input experience!

Each VPC Rudder Pedal set will have hard-center cams and soft springs installed as standard but will also include soft-center cams and heavy springs for extra adjustability, allowing you change the pedals response to your preference.

By utilising the latest VPC electronics, including our high precision contactless digital sensors with input accuracy of 0.006 degrees, the VPC Rudder Pedals offer a new level of rudder input precision.

The line up is as follows:

VPC WarBRD Rudder Pedals
The VPC WarBRD Pedals are the entry level 1-axis pedal set. Perfect for looking for a simpler pedal set or helicopter pilots!

VPC ACE-1 Rudder Pedals
The VPC ACE-1 Pedals are a 3-axis pedal set which includes an adjustable full foot pedal platform with toe brakes.

VPC ACE-2 Rudder Pedals
The VPC ACE-2 Pedals are a 3-axis pedal set which includes a pedal accessory to convert the ACE-1 full foot pedal into combat-style pedal platform with toe brakes.

Product pages and pricing information will be posted on 21st June!

Pre-Order Information
Pre-orders for the new VPC Rudder Pedals and VPC V.F.X Grip will open on 21st June at 6pm GMT on our worldwide webstore! It will also be possible to pre-order any other VPC product to form a complete order.

Pre-orders will be both time and quantity limited. Pre-orders are currently scheduled to run for 2 weeks and close on 5th July at 6pm GMT.

We’ve listened to feedback from the community regarding pre-orders, and made changes to our logistics processes to handle future pre-orders. Pre-orders will be now ran with the following rules:

  • ★ Any VPC product can be pre-ordered.
  • ★ Pre-orders will be fulfilled within estimated 90 days of the pre-order close date. Any changes to this schedule will be confirmed in an announcement.
  • ★ Pre-orders will be dispatched when all items within the order are in stock.
  • ★ Pre-orders will have stock prioritisation.
  • ★ If your order includes any pre-order items, the order must be paid for using bank/wire transfer and any transfer fees must be covered to ensure that the correct amount is received. Based on previous feedback, we would recommend using to avoid any high fees, delays or transfer errors.
  • ★ Payment must be sent in EUR.
  • ★ Pre-orders can be cancelled at any time before dispatch. Refunds will be processed within 28 days of request.


Pre-orders including the VPC Rudder Pedals and VPC V.F.X Grip will be dispatched in approximately 90 days from the closing of the pre-order period. Pre-orders for already released VPC products will be dispatched as they come in.

To clarify the stock prioritisation of pre-orders - a pre-order will only be dispatched when all items are available at our distribution center. If there is any item within the pre-order out of stock, other items within your order may be actively sold on our store while awaiting full order item availability. In the case where all items within the pre-order are available, pre-orders will be prioritised before stock is added to the webstore.

Product pages and pricing information will be posted on 21st June!

We would like to update everyone on the current status of VPC pre-orders:

The majority of pre-orders have now been dispatched! The remaining open pre-orders include either the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle and/or the upcoming VPC MongoosT-50CM Base.

As mentioned in one of our recent announcements, pre-orders for the VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle have been automatically upgraded to the new VPC MongoosT-50CM Throttle free of charge and will begin dispatching next week!

Pre-orders for the upcoming VPC MongoosT-50CM Base are currently being prepared and the VIRPIL production factory is working around the clock to produce the MongoosT-50CM Bases for dispatch! While we are striving to complete these pre-orders before the end of June, there may be a delay dispatching all pre-orders (est. mid July). We will keep everyone posted, and of course you can contact us directly for an update regarding your specific order.

We’re also very excited to confirm that we will be opening pre-orders for the highly anticipated VPC Rudder Pedals lineup on our webstore in the very near future!

Hello VIRPILs!

The VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle announced in October 2017 was VIRPIL’s first entry in the throttle controller category. With help from the community and testers, the initial design developed into the final version which was released in mid-2018.

We’re incredibly pleased that the MongoosT-50 Throttle has proven to be such a popular addition to many VIRPIL’s cockpits! Since it’s release we’ve been closely listening to feedback provided by the community and owners…

Based on that feedback, we’re excited to introduce the VPC MongoosT-50CM Throttle!

The grip handles on the VPC MongoosT-50CM Throttle have been completely redesigned to offer unparalleled functionality. The full feature list of the grip handles:

  • ★ 1 x 8-Way Hat + Push
  • ★ 3 x 4-Way Hat + Push
  • ★ 1 x 2-Way Hat + Push
  • ★ 1 x Encoder Dial
  • ★ 4 x Momentary Push Buttons
  • ★ 1 x Toggle Switch
  • ★ 1 x Slider Axis
  • ★ 1 x Analogue Ministick

The base design and feature list remains the same as the standard VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle:

  • ★ 9 x Buttons
  • ★ 6 x Toggle Switches (2 x Latched, 4 x Momentary)
  • ★ 1 x Mode Dial
  • ★ 2 x Axis Dials
  • ★ 3 x Encoder Dials (+ Push)
  • ★ 2 x Throttle Axes (VPC Contactless)
  • ★ 1 x Auxiliary Axis (VPC Contactless)

However, to simplify the mechanics the throttle axis detents have been removed.

Today, the VIRPIL Controls WorldWide webstore will be stocked with the final batch of the standard VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle and will be offered at a discounted price of 284,95 EUR.

The VPC MongoosT-50CM Throttle will be available in July 2019 for 349,95 EUR.

We would also like to confirm that everyone who has an open pre-order for the standard VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle has been contacted directly via email and will be upgraded to the new MongoosT-50CM Throttle!

Thank you to everyone who has provided us with feedback on our devices - as always this have proven to be invaluable to help us shape our product lineup!

Hello VIRPILs!

With the recent closure of our limited pre-order period, the VIRPIL Controls manufacturing team has been working around the clock on the production schedule to get all pre-orders fulfilled.

We’re incredibly happy overall that we’ve been able to offer this option for those who requested it and the support we’ve received has been fantastic - we’re confident that with this community we will be able to continue to expand and provide an exciting, fully-fledged, flightsim controller catalogue!

We’re pleased to confirm that pre-orders will start dispatching in May - ahead of the 90 day time frame, starting with pre-orders consisting of the following products:

  • ★ VPC WarBRD Base
  • ★ VPC WarBRD Grip
  • ★ VPC Constellation DELTA Grip
  • ★ VPC MongoosT-50CM2 Grip


Updates on the remaining pre-orders will be posted in the near future.

Pre-orders opened on the VIRPIL Controls WorldWide webstore as a limited run from 15th March to 27th March. Pre-orders were offered due to the huge number of requests we had received from the community asking us to do this, however we understand that not everyone wishes to pre-pay for an order, so this was only offered for a limited timeframe.

Pre-ordering allowed users to easily purchase any VIRPIL Controls product ensuring that a complete order could be placed without having to attend our webstore at a scheduled restock, having to place multiple split orders over different restocks or miss out entirely due to stock availability.

Everyone who has a completed pre-order with us will also receive a discount for our upcoming VPC Rudder Pedals! More information can be found here:

To further reward those who have chosen to pre-order, these users will be upgraded to VIRPIL Controls Founder’s Club members granting an additional 5% lifetime discount on all VPC products!

There are additional surprises in store for our pre-order customers which will be announced shortly!

During the pre-orders we received a number of messages from community members who were unable to pre-order items and were disheartened by the inability to purchase any items from our store. In an attempt to satisfy these users as well, we will now be running two separate production schedules - the main schedule focused on the completion of pre-orders, and another smaller schedule to maintain limited stock on our webstore (with the usual caveats of purchasing on a scheduled restock). These restocks may not include all VIRPIL Controls products potentially preventing a complete order. Only after all pre-orders have been fulfilled will full stock availability be directed towards our webstore.

Pre-orders can of course be cancelled no-questions-asked (more information on our site: and if anyone has any questions about their order, please contact us directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Once again we must thank everyone for their support!

Happy Flying!
