Nice! Last time I saw those they only had ww2 sticks.

Are you building the rest of the cockpit to go with it?

This is way too cool! Will be waiting to see how it performs.

You are a very Baaaaaad person Stache, showing me this thing...which I must now possess. taz

Seems like a heck of deal for $120 US.

I notice it's compatible with most of the grip systems out there. Which do you have?

I repeat. Baaaaaad man.

Just ordered one, which will no doubt slow the accumulation of new books prompted by my recent entry into the DID campaign.
VKB base just for the record.

Couple years old picture - have made a few more tweaks since then.

Wow! And it's portable too.

I love the curved wood finish on the outside. It looks like a fuselage.

I actually just decided to purchase this myself. Look forward to seeing what your take is on it when it arrives

Notice.

I received this stick on Friday.

While WOFFKeys sees the stick and can bind the buttons, when CFS3 starts the buttons do not work.
This "grip" does not have any Axis - only buttons.
I saw one reference where CFS3 does not recognize a device unless it has an X and Y Axis - no idea if that is a fact.

In the meantime I have been using a button mapper (Joystick Gremlin) to have the buttons simulate normal WOFF keyboard commands.

I do like the manfacture of the "grip".
I have been trying to figure out how to use it - one handed or two handed.
At first I was not using the Blip Button for Blip, But I am now and generally use the Grip two handed during combat and one handed at other times.
Some Pictures are coming.

I'm really glad that you posted that. Interesting that you need to use a button mapper
