Add F-16 grip as pre-order option?

Post by Blackdog »

Is there any chance of adding the F-16 grip option to the throttle pre-order? (even if the F-16 orders take longer)

I suspect there may be much stronger consumer-side interest in the F-16C grip since many sim pilots put their time/energy/money towards 'accurately' replicating a particular aircraft. There is no high-fidelity consumer F-35 sim (and will not be soon since information needed for an 'accurate' sim is classified), but DCS has the F-16C module that is inching towards completion, and their are many dedicated home F-16 pilots who have been dedicated to the F-16 for 20+ years since Falcon 4.0 (or earlier), and already have other 'realistic' cockpit components in place... but there has been no consumer F-16 since the Cougar, and no consumer-facing premium options for a F-16 throttle. I can attest that the sim F-16 community is HUNGRY for a premium-quality F-16 throttle.

I would immediately pre-order the throttle w/ an F-16 grip, but I am hesitant to pre-order with the F-35 grip, as I have no interest in simulating F-35 hardware, and would not even use it w/o an F-16 grip.

Thanks!

Hi and happy 2022

In our side, even when we really prefer the F35 grip, we must admit than after test the F16 version, is really cool. but please take in mind that we have modified the F35 grip to have all the F16 features the real one dont hve, so our RS-35 have all the F16 features.

Any way, if many of you really prefer the RS-16 grip instead the RS-35 grip we will discuss it in the company.

But at this moment the most important WE WISH YOU 2022

Thanks Dragon! Thanks for the reply.

At least speaking for myself, I could only real justify the splurge for a more authentic Viper experience (as I did with the FSSB base and stick). I already have a high-end consumer throttle that 'does the job' just fine (and in fact has MORE functions than the actual F-16 throttle), but it isn't a 'Viper' throttle. If I flew a high-fidelity F-35 sim it would be a different story, but the Viper is my bird.

Please keep us posted on any updates.

Thanks, and Happy New Year!

As far as the F16 grip look like more desired than the 35, will be mandatory move from the 35 to the 16.

So the preorder for the version with the F16 grip has been started.

Thanks Dragon, my pre-order is in! I hope I'm not wrong about Viper throttle demand.
