[ACE] 71st_AH_MastiffHello VIRPILs!

Pre-orders on our webstore have now been running for a week and even in light of the restricted payment options, the reception has been fantastic! We’re happy to be able to make changes to our ordering system based on community requests and we appreciate all the support that we’ve received!

We will be releasing a video in the near future clarifying the simplicity of adjusting our new VPC MongoosT-50CM base in the same style as our VPC WarBRD base cam change video:

The quick and easy cam and spring change process on the VPC MongoosT-50CM base means that for the first time, sim pilots have the practical means to adjust their setup to suit individual games (swapping between atmospheric flight sims and space sims) and even between aircraft (quickly swapping to lighter springs for helicopter flight for example). This unprecedented level of adjustability means you get to fly exactly how you want!

We’ve also been listening to feedback from the community regarding the VPC MongoosT-50CM mounting requirements. We know that there are people who wish to this base but already have some custom mounts or simpit that means they cannot easily use our deskmounts or the included u-bracket.

To help these users, we’ve made some changes and designed a small footprint baseplate to allow easier mounting onto all setups. All customers who have pre-ordered the VPC MongoosT-50CM base will receive this mounting plate as a free gift! This mount will also be available as a separate accessory and can be used with the VPC WarBRD base and the original VPC MongoosT-50 base.

For those of you who have been with us from the start, you may recall our very first announcement ([link] showing our proposed VPCockpit setup. In just 2 years we’ve released all the components for this setup; flightstick bases, grips, throttle and mounts… except for the rudder pedals.

Today is that long awaited day!

The VIRPIL Controls team is proud to present our latest development - and something we know has been requested for some; introducing our new range of VIRPIL Controls Rudder Pedals that include 1 and 3 axis devices!

First in the line up are the VPC WarBRD Rudder Pedals! The VPC WarBRD Pedals are a single axis design developed as a continuation from the highly successful and sought after platform designed by our Chief Designer Roman Dorokhov (Baur) - creator of BRD devices. Featuring a sturdy all metal construction, cam centering mechanism and cast aluminium footplates.

For more advanced setups we have our VPC ACE Rudder Pedals, featuring the same WarBRD heritage but now features toe brakes for a total of 3 axis of control.

The VPC ACE-1 Rudder Pedals include full-foot cast aluminium pedals which can be adjusted for different foot sizes and pedal angles.

Finally - we have the VPC ACE-2 Rudder Pedals which include a footplate accessory addon to convert the full-foot pedals found on the VPC ACE-1 Rudder Pedals to a heel-less design more commonly found on modern fighter jets.

Both the VPC WarBRD Rudder Pedals and the VPC ACE Rudder Pedals include the latest VPC electronics, including our high precision contactless digital sensors for accuracy of 0.006 degrees!

For the first time, the full VPCockpit is now available using VIRPIL Control’s devices!

The VPC Rudder Pedals are scheduled to open for pre-orders in July 2019, pricing will be confirmed in the near future. To thank our amazing supporters, we’ll be issuing a 10% discount applicable to any VPC Rudder Pedal set to everyone who has pre-ordered with us since 17th March.

Due to the immense popularity of our current pre-orders, the pre-order period will be closing ahead of schedule now on 27th March 2019. Pre-order now to secure your VPC gear including our newly announced VPC MongoosT-50CM Flightstick base and 10% discount on our upcoming VPC Rudder Pedals!

[ACE] 71st_AH_XE90This is without a doubt my proudest moment in the history of wings of liberty, shooting down a p-40 in a head on with a HS129 Sorry gamecock!!! It was succulent, he was way outside my line of flight had to jam the rudder hard right to put all those cannon rounds directly into the windscreen!!


Wish I would have recorded it, I literally leaped for joy after that kill and was shortly taken down by his fellow pilots.

Lots of outdated hits I received on that sortie, not sure if it was the server or the 71st boys.
