Description

Gunfighter Mk.III ‘F-14 Combat Edition’

Adjustable dampers allow the user to adjust the friction of the stick, which results in a heavier throw with less oscillation. The all-metal gimbal supports up to two springs per axis (up to 2x #40 spring strength), which allows for a stiffer overall feel during stick movement, especially when using an extension or a heavy grip.
