VRC USB ADAPTOR OUT OF STOCK

03.01.2019   Category: Site news

As reported some time ago, we have encountered some very serious problems with the Chinese manufacturer of our VRC USB adaptor. After nearly 10 years of supplying this device to us, they rejected our last orders issued September of last year. Some essential components like the microprocessor are no longer available. This has caused us to immediately start searching for alternative sources based on a new design.

We have already slowed down the sales of the USB adaptor 2 months ago, and are now almost completely out of stock. We expect first deliveries of the new adaptor not before April of this year. Very likely the new adaptor will be at a completely different price point as well.

We are aware of the seriousness of this problem, the USB adaptor is essential to the realistic r/c experience we offer with the VRC sim, but we rely on third parties to supply this product to us.

For now we have stopped the sale of just the USB adaptor completely, the adaptor is only available in combination with the 3-months all-inclusive subscription, and only for as long as the stock lasts.

DO NOT PAY FOR PENDING ORDERS AS WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FILL AND SHIP YOUR ORDER. PAYMENTS WILL HAVE TO BE REFUNDED.


We have around 20 CP003 stick radio controllers still in stock, a good alternative for your own radio and USB adaptor.

The only other USB adaptor on the market today is from 9Turbo, this is a high-resolution 4-channel USB adaptor, check out the 9Turbo USB adaptortheir website.

The other best alternative is to use an Xbox gamepad which is very close to a stick radio. The Xbox controller functions can be easily mapped in the Controller options in the game.

I have your USB adapter but can't get it to work with my Futaba T3PV radio. Does anybody have some kind of instructions to Help.


Ken, try reversing your steering and throttle on the radio. Also try unplugging the JR plug from the receiver and replug in the opposite direction.
