I've used a few peddles over the years and could never get decent performance. I have had my T Rudder for nearly two weeks and LOVE them.
So many hat switches is a game changer compared the my old stick. The quality of the whole build is great for the price.
upgraded from a t.flight t16000m and the difference is night and day. very precise. the detent in the center is a bit hard for my liking but otherwise I can't fault it. hope to upgrade to a gunfighter someday...
Solid, smooth, more buttons. MCG grip is pretty wow.
If they had mcg grip on nxt evo then wow.
So I went from a t1600m with twcs.
It was such a huge upgrade my brain found it hard to get used to the options and qualities, took me about a week of solid use to start to fully appreciate it. LED options, different button hat joy options.
Aside from the smoothness and genuine heavy duty feel of the Throttle, I am super impressed with the finely tuned calibration. it is possible to set both the RPM and Throttle Speed by 1 degree increments, which is really useful when flying multi engined bombers. Very happy and looking forward to matching it with the recently ordered WW11 Joystick.
I have bought the EVO Omni-throttle and the Premium EVO Space Combat stick, and am gobsmacked by the quality for the price. Up to this point in time I have been trying HOTAS from large conglomerates such as Thurstmaster and Logitech, Honeycomb, etc. There is no comparison in quality, these are streets ahead even those larger companies premium offerings, so if you are on the fence, VKB is the way to go.
To cover the stick and base in general first, everything feels solid, has excellent resistance, and the buttons feel perfect. Clicky, and not at all spongey. I have especially two Premium Space Combat sticks, and there are so many buttons I can cover everything I want to do in Space Sim games and mostly everything in Flight Sims. One of the best features of the package is the base, as it allows for so much customisability. For instance, in Space Sims, I want the throttle to have X,Y and Z axis and return to centre when I let go, but in Flight Sim, I only want the throttle to move up and down. With this kit in only a few minutes you can modify your throttle to do any of the above. You can remove all centring all together and make a helicopter stick! You can force no movement on certain axis'. What I love, is you can make this stick match and work for almost any game you are playing.
Regarding the Onmi Throttle itself, I honestly wish I had two of them. They are so comfy to hold, and no functionality is lost by using them. For me, it just feels like a more ergonomic Premium Space Combat EVO Gladiator. What is great about this system is it is completely modular, meaning I can just buy the Omni-Throttle attachment and make my flight stick an Omni-Throttle if I wanted. Additionally with the different Stick heads you can buy you can mix and match to your hearts content. I will definitely be buying the F14 stick to add to my collection!
I highly recommend the VKB EVO system. If you are on the fence about another HOTAS, I seriously cannot recommend this one enough. For the price, what you are getting here is night and day from the rest of the competition. The only vaguely negative thing I can think about is that because of their custom base they have a proprietary mounting system for their sticks, as opposed to the more 'universal' mounting system of other manufactures. Honestly though, once you try these bases and sticks it won't matter. You won't feel the need to use older sticks.
Mainly bought the left NXT Evo w/OTA for a throttle solution for DCS, and can6just say O..M..G it has exponentially improved my combat efficiency.
The dry clutch system is working flawlessly, the combination of key binds and axis is amazing. Even with the A-10C II i still have spare button binds available.
I have reccomended to all my friends. And even considering doing a YouTube review because I havent seen anyone use the Left OTA as a Throttle, more people need to know how good this it. 10/10
I could'nt ask for better service, VKB Au is has excelled, perhaps you could give Bunnings some pointers on customer service, they certainly need it.
After 3 years of trouble free use of the X56 it was starting to show signs of wear, I decided to go for the Gladiator NXT stick and Omni throttle,.
I am very satisfied with both and would'nt hesitate to recommend them for anyone that is looking to move up to a professional setup, or just spend the money and get a quality setup from the start.
I find the config software a bit hard to use as a beginner, VKB could do some more work on the manual rather than assuming the user has the background knowledge to use it.
All in all I would give VKB 10 out of 10 for the product.
Looking for a VKB throttle for DCS but love space sims too, or maybe you just love DCS?
Look no further, tighten that Y axis to your preferred level, remove the spring and you are ready to bind.
The Gladiator NXT EVO w/ OTA makes a great throttle. Smooth response and allows for so many options for airframes with the amount of buttons available.
Comfortable to grip and an easy reach.
I wanted to stay with VKB as I own a RH NXT premium and while waiting for TECS the EVO LH with OTA is a great addition.
10/10 would recommend, and have done to all my friends.
I recently purchased the Gladiator EVO 'Space Combat Edition' Premium stick to replace my aging Logitech X52 Pro. I thought the X52 was a good hotas, but the Gladiator EVO is just another level. It is so smooth and easy to use it's like night and day. I will be saving up for another EVO to replace the X52 throttle next.
Upgraded my left hand Gladiator NXT to the omni throttle, I love it as more intuitive when strafing up and down. Next is an upgrade to the evo base so I can remove the centering spring and have a true throttle experience. Great quality products, big fan of VKB's lineup.
Arrived quick, easy to set up, works perfectly. Very happy, 10/10
I absolutely love my Gladiator EVO’s! Great quality, reliable, feel good in hand and plenty of buttons and such for a complex game like star citizen. Could not be happier as I pirate my way across the ‘verse!
This stick is great. The quality of the stick is great and it has very practical configuration. I recommend this stick if any one looks for mid-range stick for any flight simulation games.
