I am hoping to get my VKB in the next couple weeks. After all I have read about them I don't think you will be disappointed in it.

Going to wish you had done it sooner, how I feel about mine.

Welp, I waited over 2 weeks for it to arrive, and the day it's supposed to land I get notified there was a problem with shipping and they'll let me know when they have a new shipping date. Ugh.

I've given up on it now, so I ordered a VKB Gladiator from China. A leap of faith since I've never seen or touched anything from this brand, but we shall see. Hopefully better precision than my current X52 which is wonky as heck.

Where are you?

Prime can have an X56 to me in 2 days - 18 in stock

But for the rest of us I think you should switch to a mouse :)

I'm in Canada. You can still find the occasional one but they're way overpriced.

Got an updated shipping notification - January 6th :(

I got my VKB Gladiator yesterday, so I guess I have a couple of months to see if I like it. So far, so good.

how is it Simon?

I bought the NXT for my xmas present in a bid to move away from CH, already have the VKB T flight pedals. 

Just need a new throttle that has 2 sliders for twin props that doesnt cost the earth.

Hey Bruv, I actually really like it. It was a bit of an adjustment at first, but once I removed stick-scaling entirely it started to feel right.

It's comfortable, precise, and has a heavy metal base. It's also a relatively small footprint compared to my X52/X55/X56s that I've been using the last few years.

I use my old X52 throttle which isn't the most esthetically pleasing setup, but it works well and has plenty of buttons.

Here in the EU or Netherlands I've seen the 26th of January on 2 or 3 sites as regarding the ETA for x56 resupply. It's like waiting for an LVT.
Unfortunately for x52s it's unknown. I sense some new budget  to mid range flight gear coming
