Right off the bat I had a bit of a abnormal request for purchasing and the customer service rep, Luke was fantastic and quick too respond. Once I finally received the item, it has elevated my flying experience thanks to how smooth and customisable it is. Yes the pro has a plastic feel but after the initial consideration, it has not bothered me in the slightest. The in the box manual could be a little more descriptive but there's enough media online and on 5he vkb YouTube channel to figure everything out. Overall I love this stick and highly recommend VKB.
Thank you very much for your positive comments.
The Gunfighter MCG Pro is a great stick as it provides all the high-tech features of the Gunfighter base.

I ordered a VKB Ultimate Edition MK III. Customer service was excellent. You're engaging with someone in Australia so communications is efficient. I actually ordered the wrong stick and VKB Australia were obliging and courteous to modify my order and replace the stick with the one I wanted. Luke in customer was good to deal with. I had a lot of questions, all answered in detail before I made the purchase. The Stick is smooth to use and exactly what I thought it was going to be. Switches are good quality and the feel of the stick is excellent, especially as you can change the cam profiles and spring rates. Thanks

Coming from the Warthog, the preinstalled springs (I'm guessing #20A) are way too light - they give about 1/4 of the resistance of the unmodified Warthog which means that in a dogfight the stick offers virtually no noticeable feedback on how hard you're pulling. Takes a while to figure out the right springs that offer a discernible feel.
My particular base also has a slight problem with re-centering from a deflection to the left, but from all the other directions it re-centers itself every single time. I really love how sensitive the base is around the centre which is great for formation flying and AAR.
Although I'm not liking the plastic feel of the grip itself I love all the extra buttons/axes the grip has over the Warthog. Kinda wish the MCG Ultimate grip is sold separately on the AU store.
Works great with the 10cm extension and provide precision control for both plane and helicopters in DCS. Youtube videos are intuitive. You don't have to use the software if you are lazy like me, I just added some more springs, adjust the damp and plug it in. Everything works perfectly.
Thanks very much for your positive feedback, Mingqian.
You have indeed chosen a super setup!

Good products. The software UI is very comprehensive and quite complicated but there are plenty of YT videos available to help out if you get stuck.
Thanks very much for the 5 star rating, Nick.
The sheer multitude of options can be a bit overwhelming but we are more than happy to help any customers who need assistance during setup.
