A few weeks ago, VIRPIL released a new product which is clearly aimed at the helicopter pilots, even if the design is a bit… Odd. Intrigued? So was I. Fortunately, I got my hands on a unit to tell you all about it.
After the release of their own design, the small manufacturer is now making available a couple of other models.
The pedals are based on an old design, and it allows for adjustments that should make it easier to control.
How do you improve something that’s already pretty darn good? Can you even do it? Can you turn a 10 into 11? Spoiler alert: yes, you can.
Another small company is bringing one of the controls helicopter pilots are always on the lookout for.
The kit allows you to control the force required to move the pedal, which can reduce stress on your legs if you use the spring, or to provide some force in case you remove it, for helicopters.
The mount will allow you to add a Control Panel right next to your collective, saving room on your desk.
Do you want to get a collective with or without a throttle? The TCS Plus Base gives you that extra feature, which is handy!
If you were waiting for this grip, you will be happy to know that VIRPIL is not only selling it already, but they also have it in stock [UPDATE: seems like it's in back-order now].
The company is having a 10%-off sale on their panels with the possibility to double that amount.
