New Gimbal and Fat Black Mamba Joystick Orders Update


Fat Black Mamba Joystick Mk.III Orders on Schedule

(Shenzhen, China / Riverside, CA USA) - January 6, 2016 - VKB Industries and Stratojet Flight Controllers are proud to give an update on Fat Black Mamba Mk.III Limited Edition orders and share pictures of their next-gen gimbal.

Fat Black Mamba Mk.III Order Update

Customers who ordered the Fat Black Mamba Mk.III Limited Edition joystick this fall will be happy to know that their orders are very close to being shipped, likely before the end of January. Production has begun and all units are on the assembly line. VKB and Stratojet have decided to deliver directly from the factory to shave four to five weeks off the wait time! The assembly team is taking great care to assemble each stick properly and they will all be tested to ensure they work before shipment.

Next-Gen Gimbal

VKB has released the first ever images of the finished all-metal gimbal that will be included in their latest joysticks. All parts are precisely machined and coated and ready for years of virtual flying and combat. No other joystick manufacturer engineers their gimbals like VKB. They are built to last and designed to be the best!

Special Cam for Warthog Adapter

Included in every Warthog Adapter kit will be a newly designed heavy-duty cam unit that properly balances the Warthog grip when installed. This will provide an even better response to user inputs for those customers that choose to combine the Warthog grip with the Mamba base.

Vintage Black Mamba Availability

The Vintage Black Mamba joystick is still available for pre-order, but available units are running low. If you are considering purchasing one of these amazing sticks - don’t delay. Quantities are very limited! And remember that the Vintage Black Mamba also comes with our new next-gen gimbal that sets a new standard for joystick design!

The Vintage Black Mamba joystick is available through our retail partners Stratojet and FSC VKB Europe.
