        T-Rudder pedals
        Paul Nguyen
        Love it

        The all metal build feels nice. Coming from a plastic Logitech, its night and day how good this feels, and I would say these pedals beat most out there. So for the price, they become top tier.

        The question about not having toe brakes is a non issue, but I guess that depends on what you fly most. I personally dont think no toe brakes handicaps me at all, i use the brakes trigger on the Gunfighter joystick. The only thing I wish was possible, is to increase the throw. These pedals are very compact with a short throw, so it can feel sensitive at first, but you get used to it quickly. I've heard people say you should use shoes with these pedals, not barefoot. I'm not sure what they are basing that one, but I use it barefoot/socks with no problem. Highly recommend, I dont think I will need another set for a very long time

        Excellent upgrade

        I finally upgraded from my very very old X52. I'm so glad I did and especially going for the Gladiator, the difference is night and day. The build quality is excellent, the grips are comfortable and it's so much more precise, I couldn't have asked for a better upgrade, I'm just sad I didn't do this earlier. If you're sitting on the fence, don't, excellent sticks and quality.

        Very impressed

        The premium feel of the all metal build is outstanding. It has such a good weighty feel, that I can imagine a real fighter jet controls might feel. Triggers have a satisfying action, which are also metal. the buttons and hats have a satisfying click to it - no plasticky feel, again feels premium. I'm extremely happy with my purchase

        Smooth

        Smooth and precise. Not a lot of buttons on this version, but with the VKB Throttle, no problem.

        Taking "Entry-Level" Flight Sticks to a Whole New Level, and then some...

        Speaking as someone who's just upgraded (and wow, SUCH an upgrade!) from a Logitech X52 Pro this stick is sublime. The feel, the heft and the configurability of this stick leaves everything else at a comparable price point dead in the water. Where the X52 felt loose and downright janky, even after 3rd party, after-market accessories to make the spring in the (floppy and limp) stick have a little more resistance to it were added, this stick glides and flows through every roll, pitch, and yaw as to make the Logitech offering downright anemic in comparison.

        Hell, even the base of the Gladiator leaves Logitech in a distant 3rd place (with daylight in the middle) given how the flight stick barely budges on my desk despite how hard I thrash at the contols - The X52 Pro, on the other hand, readily leans into whatever maneouvre you're engaging in as the base lifts from the table (again) DESPITE those sticky feet trying to help keep things on an even keel. Chuck a fit and rage all you want when some mum's basement-dwelling ganker uses you as their favourite, new chew-toy outside Deciat, the Gladiator is going nowhere.

        The calibration and configuration software (VKBDevCfg-C.exe) has an even more steeper learning curve than Elite: Dangerous (which can be accurately described as a "learning cliff-face"), so if all you want to do is just plug your stick in, set it up with whatever auto-calibration works out of the box and then go get blasted by Thargoids, then maybe the Wizzo configuration software will be more your speed; it certainly was for me.

        In closing, if this is VKB's defintion of "Entry Level" then I'm kinda intimidated by what their idea of "Professional" could be...

        T-Rudder pedals
        Thomas Rolles
        First-timer's 'Real' Flight Sim Gear

        After barely getting into flight sim with the old Saitek X52 way back in 2015 (I know, nearly 10 years now) and debating on buying a Thrustmaster Warthog for for years and years, I pulled the trigger and I went with a WinWing Orion 2 HOTAS for that 'better than Warthog' experience. Now to get good quality pedals, or a twist Z Axis? Clearly this review should tell you what to buy, the VKB T-Rudder pedals are fantastic, built solid and have enough options to satisfy people who like configuring their kit (plus easy replacement of parts, they're all the same nuts, and some different bolts. Not to mention, you can easily put in your own detent/damper plate to change the pedal feel). Easy to adjust, assemble, and best of all relatively affordable higher end kit compared to other products. A lack of a toe-brake isn't an issue if you only use it once in a blue moon anyway, or are deep into space-sim with Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous. They are configurable with 2 spring tensions settings (by physically moving the anchor where the spring connects to) and 2 clutch/detent options, one with and without a detent for a smoother feeling. I moved mine to the hard tension and kept it on the default detent/clutch position (which can just be removed and turned around if you want something without a noticable detent in the pedal movement).

        Overall, worth the money, fast shipping and built to last. The software could really use a few hours of work with user-friendliness tweaks with the GUI as a blatant form of telling the user what to at certain steps do as there isn't any clear indication on what to do, e.g when calibrating the pedals, as some other flight sim products have a specific way to calibrate them (e.g, WinWing Orion 2 joystick), the documentation does not suffice I am afraid but once calibrated it will more or less never need to be touched unless there are firmware updates.

        Gunfighter space combat L/H

        Absolutely love this joystick. Upgrading from nxt premium was a good decision for me and my budget. The fine tuning of the gunfighter base is amazing. Docking a ship has never been so smooth and using the gunfighter bases precision allows easy movements of those big ships in star citizen.Would love to see a L/H version of the gunfighter mk.III modern combat ultimate with twist for us space enthusiasts.

        VKB Gladiator EVO Premium

        Recently purchased the EVO Premium and my observations so far are:
        - Found the software and calibration a bit confusing and clunky but got there in the end and saw that the joystick was working properly.
        - The stick allows for adjustments to the different axis before securing the base plate which was simple and a great touch. I love the way the dampening affect works and really makes it feel high end.
        - Tried it out in Microsoft Flight Sim 2020 and it went haywire. After a bit of google searching found that I had set the bindings incorrectly in the game, adjusted it and got it working perfectly.
        A really great experience so far with this controller and love the way it is built and all the options such as the various buttons and hat switches within easy reach. Highly recommended.

        Well using to keep your stick working like new

        I bought this grease as my NXT stick was no longer centering properly (especially with the lightest springs). Followed the VKB video for re-greasing and it’s back to new! There’s definitely enough in the small container to do a few applications. Be aware that it is VERY sticky. Almost like toffee that hasn’t quite set. Gloves are recommended and it takes a bit of wiping with isopropyl alcohol to get the old stuff off.

        Taking "Entry-Level" Flight Sticks to a Whole New Level, and then some...

        First off though, the fly in the ointment when buying this stick; Australia Post. Dunno how (or why) but when I requested my delivery be redirected to my local Parcel Locker (about 1.6km from my home address, line of sight) through their app, Australia Post took it upon themselves to add the distance of a return journey from Melbourne to Perth (and an extra 2 days) to that redirection. Not blaming Luke in this, his service is/was top-notch.

        On to the flight stick itself - Speaking as someone who's just upgraded (and wow, SUCH an upgrade!) from a Logitech X52 Pro this stick is sublime. The feel, the heft and the configurability of this stick leaves everything else at a comparable price point dead in the water. Where the X52 felt loose and downright janky, even after 3rd party, after-market accessories to make the spring in the (floppy and limp) stick have a little more resistance to it were added, this stick glides and flows through every roll, pitch, and yaw as to make the Logitech offering downright anemic in comparison.

        Hell, even the base of the Gladiator leaves Logitech in a distant 3rd place (with daylight in the middle) given how the flight stick barely budges on my desk despite how hard I thrash at the contols - The X52 Pro, on the other hand, readily leans into whatever maneouvre you're engaging in as the base lifts from the table (again) DESPITE those sticky feet trying to help keep things on an even keel. Chuck a fit and rage all you want when some mum's basement-dwelling ganker uses you as their favourite, new chew-toy outside Deciat, the Gladiator is going nowhere.

        The Best

        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.

        Hi Anthony,

        We thank you for the great review of the T-Rudder.
        With its all-metal construction and precise movement we are confident they will last you for a very long time.

        Thank you for supporting VKB!

        Fantastic stick, next level for DCS

        So many hat switches is a game changer compared the my old stick. The quality of the whole build is great for the price.

        Thank you very much for the positive review, James.

        The Gladiator EVO is by far our most popular controller given the value for price. We are glad you like it too.

        Gladiator EVO 'Space Combat Edition' Premium

        Hi Jakub,

        Thank you very much for the 5 star rating for the Gladiator EVO.

        Regards, VKB Support team

        beautiful.

        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...

        Thank you for the 5 star rating, Don.

        Yes, we hear this often from customers that upgrading to VKB made a big difference in their sim playing.

        Regards, VKB Support team

        It realy is top tier

        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.
        Its awesome.

        Hi roger,

        We thank you very much for the positive review and comments.
        You have chosen an awesome controller and we trust it will serve you well for a very long time.

        Happy flying!

        GNX WWII Throttle

        Perfect calibration

        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.

        Thank you Bruce for the positive feedback.

        Yes, the WWII Throttle combo is very popular with simmers and we are confident you will like the setup with the Gladiator EVO WWII controller.

        Cheers, VKB Support team

        Endless Flexibility, exceptional quality

        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.

        Hi Carter,

        Wow, what a great review! Thank you so much.
        This is incredibly useful information for other simmers as well, especially the ones who may not have used VKB previously.

        Happy flying and thank you for your support for VKB!

        GLADIATOR EVO Throttle OTA for DCS

        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

        Hi Rob,

        We thank you for the great review and are very happy that you like the EVO Omni Throttle.
        Please let us know if you make a video as we would like to have a look at it too. Maybe we can even post it on our website?

        Gladiator NXT & Omni throttle

        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.

        Thank you very much, Russ, for your positive review.

        We are very pleased you like the EVO Omni Throttle.
        Please do not hesitate to reach out to the VKB community and VKB techs at the official VKB Discord forum: https://discord.gg/UJAdpdHpYm
        This is a great place to connect with like-minded simmers.

        GLADIATOR EVO Throttle

        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.

        Hi Rob,

        Thank you very much for the 5 star rating and we are very happy you like the EVO Omni Throttle.
        Yes, many simmers use it for space and flight sims.

        Upgraded from X52 Pro

        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.

        Thanks very much for the great review, Gary.

        We are very pleased you like the Gladiator EVO.
