First post was from Official VKB and reply was "This year" for the query that when the VKB throttle will be available.

Little down the thread the Official VKB as well states that the VKB throttle TECS starting price is $199 (that is the throttle part, you can buy all the rest control boxes to rear, forward and front of it separately to get a far more extended controls if you so like).

 

The original 2017 mockup for the whole TECS.

And one of the alternative throttle section mockups.

If someone would ask from me, I would take the throttle section such way that it has full length for the throttle sliders, so maximizing the throttle movement range linearly.

And then have good radio panel etc boxes that you can buy separately as wanted that you can stack to rear/front of it and place some to up as you please.

 

As for VR purposes I don't need any extra buttons but I would like to have longest possible movement for throttle for accuracy and having nice good mechanically adjustable detents for idle and afterburner with those finger lifts (and possibly "push through" feature for afterburner).

Alternative design looks sweet. I'd definitely want to have the same amount of "on-throttle" controls as on my Warthog. And then more around it !

I feel you. Bought a new PC and monitor in February, have planned purchases of two throttles (this and a Honeycomb Beta), mounts for the TECS and my Kosmosima, and I just bought a Stream Deck. Lastly, if it comes out this year, I want a 3080ti.

I’ll see you on skid row.

Personally, I'd be happier if Winwing did their throttle without their grip and base. As I fly VR the buttons are less interesting to me: a long throw mechanical throttle with metal parts is better from my and a button packed, small form factor plastic throttle.

 

But I understand that everyone will have their own opinions, some who will agree and some who disagree. Happy for all the people looking forwards to this.
