extremely satisfied

I have found the specs very easy to use and reliable. I had a bit of trouble connecting to my pc but I sent an email to VKB about 7 pm and to my surprise within 15 minutes they contacted me and I was shown the way to do it with a couple of emails, this is by far the best follow up you could get.

It is good with a lot of buttons to be used. Loved the swappable detent frames along with the customisation for the encoders and different detents.

What an upgrade!

Coming from a x56 and playing DCS this has been a amazing upgrade. Functionality and build quality is excellent and the customization is the icing on the cake. If you are on the fence about upgrading and have the funds you will not be disappointed.

Thank you for your kind words and for choosing our STECS Throttle System! We are delighted to hear that it has been an amazing upgrade for you and that you are pleased with its functionality, build quality, and customization options. We truly appreciate your support and recommendation. Happy flying!

Major step up from X-56

I've used (two sets) of X-56 HOTAS over the past several years. I'll admit to being a bit nervous with respect to mixing different products to make up my HOTAS. However, when I bought a Gladiator EVO Joystick to replace the failed X-56 stick I knew after the first few moments of use that VKB was the way to go. My X-56 throttle was working OK (for a bit) and the new STECS from VKB was introduced so I decided to buy the STECS. I was a bit concerned that there may not be enough buttons for Elite Dangerous in my set up, but I need not have worried at all. The new STECS looks, feels and operates to a very high standard, the HOTAS set up is so good it's beyond what I expected.
I'm now considering Rudder Pedals as the next stage.
I should also note that the communication from VKB was absolutely first class, and Australia Post and New Zealand Post did a great job in delivering my STECS Standard Throttle to me (in the deep South of South Island) in just over a week.
