F-16 Side Grips

360,00650,00

F-16 grips are manufactured in two lines, Professional and Home. All of them are replica with the true F-16 shape and manufactured in high density resin in an one-piece body construction (unlike other manufacturers) and with a high-grade fixation system. Its lightweight construction allows to use with VR goggles in standup position or disconnected from the base.

Home line is available in two versions, the F16SGRH with a matte finish and slight grainy feel and the F16SGRH Collector’s Edition with a hand made finishing with painting.

They have a rotary switch installed under the TRIM hat switch cap, to easily hot swap between 8 configurable memory slots, 5-way switches in all the hat switches (CMS, TMS, DMS and TRIM), 5-way switches where in real life there is only 1 (WR, NWS and PINKY), a realistic Trigger, a independent Bluetooth LE communications, three status LEDs used for BLE information and slot number in use and three analog axes for Roll, Pitch and Yaw.

Now, you also have available the F-16 Left Hand version grips.

Availability:

  • F16SGRH in STOCK.
  • F16SGRH-CE in Pre-Order (shipping for Xmas, on December 21, 2020; orders deadline November 15).

Description

The F16SGRH as well as the RS grips family come in two lines, Professional and Home.

Professional range uses its own software and real military switches as well as custom socket and connector, under client specification.

Home range comes in two versions, the F16SGRH and a special version named Collector’s Edition (F16SGRH-CE).

The F16SGRH is made on black nylon plastic with a matte finish and a slightly grainy feel and it is focused to use with the FSSB-R3L adding it a lot of extra features.

The F16SGRH-CE is also manufactured in nylon plastic but it features a handmade finish with 2K painting. This grip includes all extra features for the R3L plus a BLE module that allows its use as standalone device. In this way, you can use it with the R3L or a gimnbal base with sensors or not, just as the F16SGRH-CE includes XYZ sensors or even directly in your hands.

Both versions have the same dimensions and shape of the real grip, the same high-grade fixation system manufactured in aeronautic aluminum and the same high density resin in an one-piece body construction with the following features:

  • An upgradeable electronic module.
  • True F-16 shape (so, the R3 Adapter should not be used with the FSSB-R3).
  • Add extra features to the FSSB-R3 Lighting when is connected to the R3L base.
  • A rotary switch, installed under the TRIM hat switch cap, to easily hot swap between 8 configurable memory slots. With a single thumb movement, you can reconfigure the whole system in a fraction of a second.
  • 5-way switches in all the hat switches (CMS, TMS, DMS and TRIM), with the possibility to disable the center position. It offers up to 62 different buttons.
  • 5-way switches where in real life there is only 1 (WR, NWS and PINKY), with the possibility to disable the additional directions.
  • Three status LEDs used for BLE information and Slot number in use.
  • Realistic Trigger.
  • More features only availables in the F16SGRH-CE through the BLE module:
    • Independent Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communications, so you can use it alone or with an X/Y base.
    • Three analog axes in the standard configuration for Roll, Pitch and Yaw. These axes are independent of the standard axes in the X/Y base.
    • Lightweight construction to allow use with VR goggles in standup position or disconnected from the base.
    • Firmware upgradeable through BLE, so you could need a 4.0 or higher BLE dongle if your PC doesn’t have BLE included.
    • Configurable audio and video overlay in games and VR goggles.

The F16SGRH-CE is a wireless device.

The F16SGRH-CE, besides being a standard grip with connection to FSSB-R3L or gimbal base with extra features is also a wireless device connected by Bluetooth (BLE). This functionality is complementary and independent of standard use of grip, so for example, you will be able to use the F16SGRH-CE powered through a standard USB wire.

To use this functionality the only requirement is a BLE connection in the computer, integrated in the motherboard or through a dongle and run Windows 8.1 or higher because windows 7 and 8.0 do not support BLE devices. We suggest using Windows 10, we have fully tested the device functionality and software tools supplied in this OS.

The F16SGRH family are standard grips. 

They have communications with the base through a 5-pin mini-Din connector, just like all Thrustmaster compatible grips. The information the user can obtain from the F16SGRH  through this connector only depends on the base connected. That means that if the F16SGRH is used with a TM Cougar base, the features will be identical to that of a Cougar stick, but if it is used with a FSSB-R3 or FSSB-R3L, you will be able to enjoy all the new features included in the new firmware created for the R3 and R3L: 8 different configurable slots, 62 buttons to send keystrokes (only in the R3L), a digital mouse (only in the R3L), etc.

Additionally, as we said above,  the F16SGRH-CE can also work independently since it has a BLE communications module. So if the F16SGRH-CE is connected to a FSSB-R3 or R3L, you’ll enjoy the new features from the FSSB or directly from the F16SGRH-CE. And if you connect it to a TM compatible base or use it in standalone mode, you’ll enjoy the features directly from the F16SGRH.

Improve the FSSB-R3L with new features.

When the F16SGRH family are connected to a FSSB-R3L base, the latter offers the following additional features: slot number goes from 4 to 8, no SMM system just as you have 8 different configurations with hot swap (fast change), and 62 buttons to achieve the center position and center + up, down, right, left, and additional keyboard functions.

Tools available to update and configure it.

The F16SGRH-CE is supplied with a firmware update tool (DCC) that can be used to install new versions of the firmware and a GUI application (RS_HID_DEV_TOOL) used to configure the device. Both tools can be extracted from the same file available on the download page of our website.

Fully user configurable

The F16SGRH-CE is fully configurable with the RS_HID_DEV_TOOL, it let you adjust all parameters and functionalities per each memory slot, so the analog control of each axis can be used to independently adjust roll, pitch and yaw to anyone´s liking for each memory slot.

In every slot you can configure the next analog features:

  • Full Scale Control
  • Roll Sensitivity
  • Pitch Sensitivity
  • Yaw Sensitivity
  • Roll Control Assistance
  • BFA Roll level
  • BFA Pitch level
  • Precision mode

Other additional features are:

  • HAT as POV or TRIM
  • Keystrokes ON/OFF
  • DX Buttons ON/OFF
  • DX Center Buttons in four modes: native (ON), basic (COMP), center removed (OFF) and double click (DClick).
  • Test window called Output
  • 62 DX buttons can be enabled or disabled for every slot.
  • 62 keystrokes can be enabled or disabled for every slot and of course can be different in every slot
  • DX events and Keystrokes generation by pulses, additional slot change thanks to the Shifter and Toggle functions, and Digital Mouse.
  • SWLed function to enable/disable showing switches activation in status LEDs when pressed.
  • Adjustable LEDs lighting level.
  • Slot name over the desired application with the Overlay function.

Left Hand versions available.

Finally, left hand versions are available for home use: F16SGLH and F16SGLH-CE, with the same manufacturing and functional characteristics as the right hand versions.
