It’s been a while since I did my last hardware review but I have a few reviews that I’d like to do starting off with VIRPIL’s latest throttle – the VPC MongoosT-50CM3 throttle. A review unit just arrived at Stormbirds HQ and here’s a little teaser of what I’m going to be thoroughly testing.
If you follow Stormbirds on Twitter, you’ll already know that I shared a teaser back on Sunday on the Stormbirds Twitter account with a tease of the new hardware.
The VPC MongoosT-50CM3 Throttle by VIRPIL is the companies latest throttle for flight and space sim fans. This is the fourth iteration of the throttle and was announced at the end of last year. I previously purchased and reviewed the first generation of the throttle and now I’m checking out the latest model to see what’s changed, what’s improved, how it stacks up and how it fits into the modern flight simmers toolkit.
I’m calling my hardware review series “Battle tested” because I will be taking it into a wide variety of sims and simulation situations. From rainstorms in Microsoft Flight Simulator to the hectic combat situations of DCS World and IL-2: Great Battles.
More on this to come!
