Gladiator Space Combat Edition
As you may notice, Gladiator Space Combat (Kosmosima) variant is out of stock at the moment. The good news is that new big batch is arriving via ocean in about two weeks from now. So, in the third week of August we expect to re-stock all Space Combat Gladiator flightsitcks again.
Long-awaiting Gunfighter is also arriving in the same batch. All variants will be available for purchase. We are going to offer combo variants (a base + a grip) and a stand-alone Mk.IV base with a grip conversion kit. The kit will allow to replace rev.A or rev.B socket of the VKB grip to the newest rev.C socket.
Gunfighter Mk.IV size and look is the same as Mk.III. So, UCM S-GF and UCM L-GF are fully compatible with Mk.IV base.
Here is the summary “what’s new” of Mk.IV:
- New generation clutch. No stiction soft start, and extra smooth movement.
- Spring pre-tighteners. Before, the load was determined by the spring you had to install; now you have a lot more wide, yet precise control over it.
- Blackbox Mk3. This is a new version of our powerful external controller. Increased frequency and on-board firmware algorithms drastically boosted productivity. The controller became truly intelligent.
Unlike before, when different external devices required flashing the Blackbox with different firmware, now it automatically detects connected devices and configures them.
- New type of the connector (Rev. C) between the base and the grip. Its round shape allows rotation of the grip without the risk of damaging the contacts. Gold-plated contacts provide extended longevity.
Currently we are expecting to start offering STECS by the end of September. All details of the STECS variants you can see in the official announcement
