ADJUSTABLE FINGER-LIFT DETENT SYSTEM

Utilising a real, physical finger-lift detent system, the MongoosT-50CM3 Throttle can be configured to require lifting to pass through a detent to prevent accidental crossover into the idle cutoff or afterburner range. Alternatively, push-through detent plates can be installed which provide tactile feedback when crossing the detent, without requiring the use of the finger-lifts. 

Included Detent Plates:

Classic - Lift to pass detents, push return.
Classic Plus - Lift to pass detents, push return but with an additional tactile bump immediately after lifting. 
Warthog-Type - Lift to pass and lift to return detents.
Aerobatic - Push through and push return detents.
CosmoSim - Push through central detent.

The detent plates can be adjusted forwards and backwards to position them where you need them within the axis range. The plates can also be mixed and matched between sets to provide a huge number of configuration possibilities.

DUAL THROTTLE CONTROL

The dual throttle control system allows for independant control of two engines. The throttle handles can be locked together to synchronise both engines, or they can be split using the quick-lock toggle for precise differential thrust control. 

PROGRAMMABLE RGB BACKLIGHT

While not found on it's realworld counterpart - the VPC Apache-64 Collective Grip features a robust programmable backlighting system with 8 inpedendant zones. Backlighting can be configured based on button/shift states, or simply to match the aesthetic of your cockpit! For those seeking ultimate realism, the backlighting can be disabled. 


COMPREHENSIVE CONFIGURATION SOFTWARE

The VPC Configuration Suite is a powerful collection of tools that offer a huge range of programmable and configurable options to take your setup even further. With the ability to configure axis-to-buttons, virtual axis, shift states, toggles and more - there's nothing you can't control with your VIRPIL Controls gear!

READY TO TAKE-OFF

The VPC Apache-64 Collective Grip is compatible with the VPC Rotor TCS Collectives, and recognised as a standard USB input device without requiring additional drivers, and as such is directly compatible with a huge array of USB controller compatible games and flight sims. Take your simulations to the next level with VIRPIL Controls equipment! 

VERSATILE MOUNTING CONFIGURATIONS

The VPC Apache-64 Collective Grip can be mounted to any VPC Rotor TCS Collective in your cockpit. By using our Chair Mount Collective Adapter you can attach your collective to a range of standard office-style chairs, or by using the included bracket you can custom mount to an existing DIY or 3rd party cockpit.
