T-Rudder Mk.IV, Gladiator and Gladiator Pro Pre-Order Launch

VKB Industries and Stratojet Flight Controllers have opened up pre-orders for its new T-Rudder Mk.IV pedals, Gladiator and Gladiator Pro joysticks.

T-Rudder Mk.IV
VKB has refined the T-Rudder pedals, introducing a new design which offers a heel pad to make adjustment easier and provide a more stable platform. ‘Virtual’ toe brakes will also be available via software, allowing users maximum functionality. Pre-Orders are now available through Stratojet (www.gostratojet.com) for $249.99 (£173 approx) in the US. They will soon be available from FSC VKB Europe (www.flightsimcontrols.com).

Gladiator Joystick
The Gladiator is built with heavy-duty internals for precise handling. The Gladiator Pro is the same form factor as the Gladiator, but will include an all-metal next-generation gimbal with changeable cams, and it doesn’t include the twist function. The Gladiator Pro joystick is also available for pre-order from Stratojet (www.gostratojet.com) in the US for $99.99 ()£62 approx.

Both the Gladiator and Gladiator Pro have inputs for VKB rudder pedals allowing the stick and pedals to be seen as a single device by your computer.

A statement from the company explained: “This announcement ends the first phase of expansion of VKB Industries. However, it signals the beginning of an even greater [growth] of VKB’s product line and operations on a global scale. It will take some time, but VKB Industries and its partners are committed to bringing flight-simmers and gamers the best controllers for their favourite titles.”
