Hey I want to ask is the F-14 Grip also premium edition?
Thank you for the 5 star rating and with regards to your question, there is only one version of the F-14 grip.
We hope this helps.

I am enjoying my VKB Gladiator EVO F-14 combat edition. Assembly was extremely easygoing and the feel of the stick is fantastic. It moves smooth with no janky movements. I am interested in trying out other products in the future.
Thank you very much for the great review of the Gladiator EVO F-14.
This is a great option for any fighter pilots indeed!

awesome 10/10, feels great and is solid and easy to put together aswell as taking apart to interchange some parts. When i first got it i was a bit annoyed as i had to "put it together" (i thought i had to do alot more than what i had to) and once it was done i was absolutely estatic to try it out on DCS and fly the F-14B with the actual joystick :D would be awesome if you guys also made the throttle for the F-14, but i am happy with just the joystick Thanks!!
Thank you for the great review and the video, Keenan.
Unfortunately, a F-14 throttle is currently not available but you may want to consider the Gladiator EVO Omni Throttle. You can lock the x axis and remove the springs from the y axis so the controller behaves like a real-life throttle.
