I bought the Vkb Gladiator Premium 2 weeks ago.
Before that, I had a Logitech G Extreme 3D Pro for years which is completely sufficient for beginners and is also a good all-rounder.
When the Logitech was slowly worn out, I bought a Titanwolf Vulture plus the extra Throttle.
The Vulture was a waste of money, cheaply processed, too light springs and the worst: it lags with the inputs, if I move it it takes up to half a second until you can see the effects in the sim. And then they sell this thing for 80 € ^^
Precise flying is of course not possible.
The Titanwolf Throttle is ok for the 40 € it has enough buttons etc. and can be easily combined with an existing joystick.
Then I got the Logitech X52 Pro which was a significant difference to the two before in all respects.
The joystick is just a little big and doesn’t sit well in the hand, the springs are a little too soft for me, but the throttle is great.
When the X52Pro got older, I looked for a replacement and then bought the Gladiator.
And they are 2 different worlds.
The Gladiator is much more precise and has hall sensors even on the rudder axis.
Lies 1000 times better in the hand and has better quality buttons and switches. The feeling using this thing is another level compared to the other before.
So I really recommend the VKB Gladiator, whether standard or premium everyone has to know for themselves.
The part is definitely worth the money and feels 5 times more valuable than the others described.
So now i use the VKB Gladiator plus the Titanwolf Throttle and im fully good with it.
