Hello VIRPILs!

The "What Grip Should VIRPIL Make Next?" giveaway poll is now closed. We've had 899 entries in total and lots of great comments and discussions!

It is great to hear directly from the community what you want to see - the overall poll winner was the "Upgraded Constellation Space Sim Grip" with the "Modern Western Fighter Grip" coming in at a close second! Don't worry if your dream grip didn't win the poll - we're very excited to build a complete lineup of interchangeable grips to suit every user.

We've compiled a list of everyone who has voted on the poll and we will be using https://www.randompicker.com/ to conduct the draw on the 4th January at 6PM GMT

Three VIRPIL forum users who voted on the poll will be chosen sequentially, at random:

  • • 1st Winner - VPC WarBRD Grip
  • • 2nd Winner - Unannounced VPC Grip
  • • 3rd Winner - Unannounced VPC Grip

 

We will contact the winners over our forums to collect the required information. The VPC WarBRD Grip winner will be sent their prize at the end of January, the other two winners will have their prize confirmed along with a date when these unannounced grips have been revealed during Q1 2019! 

Thank you everyone for your support, comments and suggestions!

Hello VIRPILs!

We hope everyone has had a fantastic Christmas, getting all the flightsim gear they wanted!

Today marks the 2nd anniversary of our very first public announcement detailing the MongoosT-50 project. In just two short years we've had many exciting developments including the opening of our own dedicated production factory in Belarus and appointing Baur of BRD fame as VIRPIL Control's Chief Designer!

We've expanded our catalogue to include a new next-generation desktop base - the VPC WarBRD, built to continue on the excellent design work of the proven BRD-DS Base. 2018 also marked the release of our VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle and the creation of the space-sim focused VPC Constellation Series.

We have no intentions of slowing down though! Our production factory is being ramped up to cope with the amazing demand we've been experiencing. We've been scheduling frequent restocks roughly every 2 weeks since 1st October - now we're working to bring the production numbers up even further.

A lot of work has been going into our factory, including new equipment and new staff. We've taken some photos around the new VIRPIL Controls factory to show to show everyone what's going on behind the scenes!

Our product development team are also working around the clock on many exciting new projects. The next product we'd like to reveal today is our third unique grip design to our catalogue - the VPC WarBRD Grip!

It's the perfect addition to our VPC WarBRD base, based on a very successful grip design found in many different types of aircraft over the years. Featuring a versatile selection of controls including:

  • ★ Dual Stage Trigger
  • ★ 1 x 8-way POV Hat (+ Push)
  • ★ 2 x Momentary Push Buttons
  • ★ 4-Way (+ Push) Thumb Hat
  • ★ All Metal Twist Axis with VPC Contactless Sensor
  • ★ Configurable Mode LED


The VPC WarBRD Grip will be available for sale on our webstore on the 23rd January 2019 for 109.95 EUR.

We're continuing to work on other projects behind the scenes which we hope to announce within the 1st half of 2019 so stay tuned for more news on those!

We've received a fantastic response to our forum thread asking the community what grip they want to see from us in the future with a modern western fighter grip currently leading the vote - this doesn't mean the other options won't happen, it just helps us to know what you guys want next! The poll closes on December 31st so be sure to get your vote in for a chance to win one of our next grips to be released in the first quarter of 2019. There will be three winners chosen at random from everyone who has voted. The prizes are:

  • ★ 1st Winner - VPC WarBRD Grip
  • ★ 2nd Winner - Unannounced VPC Grip
  • ★ 3rd Winner - Unannounced VPC Grip


As always we must thank you, the community - without you none of this would even be possible! Here's to an exciting 2019 VIRPILs!

Have a fantastic New Year!

Regards,
VIRPIL Controls Team

Merry Christmas VIRPILs!

Hello VIRPILs!

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about when our worldwide store will be restocked after the 1st October opening day rush. We’re now pleased to confirm that new stock will be available to purchase from 19th October!

This will mark the first step of our new production plan utilizing our factory to keep our webstore frequently restocked with our products. We will not be sending over small parcels of just 10’s of products - this first restock will include close to 1,000 units of combined stock. We will continue to keep the webstore stocked to keep up with the demand to try and ensure that no one has to wait to get an order in!

All items will be restocked including the VPC WarBRD Base, VPC MongoosT-50 Throttle and VPC Constellation Delta Grip as well as all our accessories. Further news on the VPC MongoosT-50 Base will be coming in the near future.

Everyone who has signed up for a stock alert notification should receive those emails when the stock has been activated on the store. For everyone else feel free to check out our new worldwide webstore at:

Hello VIRPILs!

After the successful launch of our new worldwide webstore, we were overwhelmed to see such monumental demand for our VPC MongoosT-50 base.

Due to receiving messages from many users that they missed the opportunity to purchase this base yesterday, we will be doing a final production run before discontinuation which will be available for purchase by the end of November!

As we are moving away from taking pre-orders, instead we request that anyone who still wishes to purchase an MT-50 base to simply sign up for the stock alert email on our webstore so that you are alerted when they are available.

If anyone has any questions - 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!
