F14 flight stick

F14 flight stick DEFAULT

It’s been a while since we’ve heard much from VKB-Sim but today they and Heatblur jointly announced a new joystick grip named simply the ‘F14 Tomcat Grip’ which will be compatible with that company’s Gunfighter joystick base. Here’s what we know!

Millimeter accurate

An update on the VKB forums reports that they worked with Heatblur and specifically with Heatblur’s 3D scans of an F-14 cockpit to build an authentic grip. They tell us that the design of the grip is accurate to the millimeter. That’s impressive!

Though the grip itself is authentic to the shape and size of the F-14’s stick, the internal components are tried and tested VKB-Sim parts though there are some unique features that they revealed.

F14 Tomcat Grip features:

  • Rubber inserts for a no slip firm and handy grip
  • Metal ammo switch, hat, and emergency autopilot disable trigger
  • Long travel soft click buttons
  • Modular hat design (fully dismantleable, all buttons user replaceable)
  • Ammo switch design based on contactless sensor
  • DLC maneuver wheel design based on contactless sensor
  • Two-step trigger design based on cam mechanism – similar to that used in real life war planes
  • Lockable contactless sensor twist mechanism
  • 32-bit APM controller as the brain of the grip

In particular, the two-step trigger using a cam mechanism sounds fascinating. A lockable contactless twist mechanism also ensures that people without rudder pedals can fully enjoy this system (and if you do – you can lock it out).

Pre-orders and discounts

If you’re a Heatblur DCS: F-14 owner you are apparently eligible for a 10% discount on the grip. In reverse, if you buy the grip and want to get the F-14 you can get a $10 discount on the DCS: F-14. Interesting!

Pre-orders should begin in November and the MSRP is set at $189 USD (not including the Gunfighter base or the DCS: F-14 discount) and you can find out more information from a couple of sources:

Replacing cams and springs, adjusting the dry clutch, installing a grip on a Gunfighter base:

NOTE: The clutch dampers may be tightened at the factory to prevent them from loosening during shipping; before you connect your Gunfighter to your PC, you will need to loosen the dampers for both pitch and roll axes to achieve correct return-to-center axes movements after calibration.

F-14 Combat Grip (Stand-Alone)

We decided to offer an opportunity to get the grip in very first batch which will be shipped to EU store via air. Air shipping is considerably more expensive therefore the price is a little bit higher.

Existing Heatblur F-14 customers, who purchased their DCS F-14 modules from either Eagle Dynamics or Heatblur stores respectively, will receive 10% off of the grip’s retail price; this rebate option will be implemented to the webshop accordingly once the grip is ready for ordering. 

Coupon codes need be entered in the following format: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (including hyphens; spaces are not allowed).

Meant for VKB customers who already own a compatible joystick and wish to use it with a VKB F-14 Combat Grip. (Scroll down for product descriptions & relevant downloads)

Flight stick f14

The man had seduced Regina all evening. He was hilarious, telling various stories related to his tennis career. He completed it about 10 years ago and then went to the association.

Grumman F-14 Tomcat tour and aerial demonstration

In my mind, this image immediately began to dominate, and any demonstration of my mother's sexuality was received with delight. In addition, I hoped that she would not miss the opportunity to have a resort romance, and I could watch her again. Going to the sea, we forgot one important detail: finding accommodation in the high season is no easier than winning the lottery. In all decent guesthouses, rooms were booked several weeks in advance.

Having mentally resigned ourselves to the lack of air conditioning and TV, we began to consider advertisements for renting rooms from local residents.

Not a bad idea. As soon as I typed "psychologist Moscow" into the search, the first transparent droplet fell on the phone screen. I put my smart aside and put my head on my hands on the steering wheel. Shoulders shook. I've never felt so lonely.
