Quick Update on GNX Orders Shipping

Hi guys,

We here at VKBcontrollers.com appreciate your patience in waiting for your GNX order to ship.

The GNX launch was the biggest product launch since we’ve been running this webshop, so thank you for all your support and enthusiasm.

That said, GNX orders have been shipping since last Friday, and we have already received hundreds of tracking numbers to pass on to customers waiting for their orders to ship.

We’re now approaching the second week of GNX orders shipping, and VKB’s shipping dept requires several more business days to get all these orders shipped out to you!

Of course you will get notified by email once your order is completed and tracking info is available – but a little more patience is needed.

Until next time,

Quick GNX Order Status Update

Hi guys,

According to VKB HQ, GNX orders should start processing for shipping from Friday, Aug 28.

Due to the record amount of GNX orders received, order processing will have to be staggered and shipping will take place in batches over several business days before all GNX orders are shipped out.

This means that processing for shipping won’t be as swift as you might think until your order ships, and more patience is still needed.

As always, we will update your order page with tracking info as we receive them from VKB’s shipping dept; however, as to when exactly you will receive *your* tracking number is out of our control.

We here at VKBcontrollers.com wish to thank you for your ongoing support – and your patience – in getting the GNX joysticks into your hands.

Until next time,

VKB HQ on Stand-Alone Bases

Hi guys,

VKB HQ’s AeroGator shared this little statement on the official VKB forum (source http://forum.vkb-sim.pro/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=4400):

Hello Pilots, we’ve been receiving increasingly many questions on the topic.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST AND SUPPORT!

YES I double confirm we are going to sell the bases separately.
NO I double confirm I will not disclose the date we will do it.
WHY?? – indeed, a fully legitimate question.
BECAUSE there is still a solid chance of force majeure, and although we were lucky and wise making timely provisions at the very first signs of coming trouble in January, let’s not forget the virus is still at large, and supply chains can be interrupted any moment .
Sept 1, 2020 – As for right now, I believe it is safe to say we will roll standalone bases out before the kids go to school. If there is no major disturbance, maybe earlier. In case of trouble, maybe a bit (not a lot) later.

There will be no update on this release until the dealers have green light from us, and the standalone bases appear in their shops.

Please don’t nudge the cook: it won’t bring the steak earlier! We want to serve you the bases no less than you want to put your hands on them.

To make waiting less boring, let me tell you that there will be TM-optimized bases (adapter + pre-flashed FW) coming at the same time with “normal” ones. Also, there will be no “just base, without a blackbox” option: all bases will have blackboxes as part of the set.

Enjoy your time flying, and please stay tuned!

Until next time,
