Holy Cow

I have been waiting to get a new throttle and wanted to wait for the STECS to see if it was any good. I’m so glad I did. This thing is so good it’s insane. Every button and switch is right where it needs to be. Smooth, programmable and adaptable to any aircraft you fly. I fly DCS and it’s so easy to set up for every aircraft I fly. So glad I waited.

Hi Snap,
Thank you very much for the positive feedback and we are sure you will enjoy the STECS for a very long time.

Throttle Me Good

Quality of product and customer service that VKB have nailed, beware competitors time to pick your game up. After my existing entry level Throttle decided to break 2 months after its warranty period finished and the manufacturer would even look at assisting with a replacement or replacement parts I went on the hunt for a new toy. Thank you VKB for providing that new "Toy" at a great price (for being in Australia) that shows quality parts and engineering. Looking forward to completing my complete pit in VKB.

Thanks very much for this awesome review, Spooky.

It's great to hear that you love the STECS, like so many other simmers!
We trust the STECS will serve you well for a long time.
And thanks to our local support team you can always count on us with any questions or issues.

Great product

When I got the early bird release email about this unit I was very surprised and excited. VKB has done a top job with this. Maybe there is a cyclic control adaption or controller in the near future?? That would just seal the deal with my DCS game. Good job VKB. Keep up the good work. My VKB products are great. From the desk mounts to the peripherals.

The customisable detent system is a game changer.

As usual, an excellent unit from the VKB team with all the functionality of it's direct competitors and much, much more. Especially the game changing, totally configurable, hot swappable detent system. Not to mention the physically customisable buttons. Amazing!
In the future I'd like to see a righthand or neutral versions to expand the versatility beyond the warbird trope. Or just add this detent system to a new improved version of the already versatile THQ units....

Thanks very much for this awesome review, David.

It's great to hear that you love the STECS, like so many other simmers!
