The company is expanding and opened a branch dedicated to the US market.
The manufacturer is offering an extra discount on helicopter controls starting today and they have indicated prices will rise in August.
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.
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.
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.
