Preparations for VRC PRO are in full swing and VRC is now starting to inform r/c manufacturers about the unique concept of VRC PRO and to give them insight in the rich features and communication opportunities the new platform has to offer to the r/c industry. Although there are many manufacturers who would like to join the VRC PRO partnership, VRC is restricting the partnerships to the 5 main manufacturers in each product category. We strongly believe it is in the interest of our partners and our racers to offer this level of brand exclusivity although this may also mean that some less popular brands will not be represented in VRC. Still, working with the top-5 in each category will ensure the major brands and their customers will be best served. Kyosho, XRay and Associated are among the most popular brands in most chassis categories.
QPM 2 Results
The results of the 2nd Quarterly Progress Monitor have been published a while back on the VRC website. The more QPM surveys we will have conducted the more comparative results will be produced as more and more members will have multiple QPM’s filed. The most important outcome of the 2nd QPM was that there is a steady increase of appreciation of VRC because users felt their r/c racing skills had increased as a result of using VRC. The community part of VRC received a little less appreciation this time. The VRC web team is therefore now focusing even more on the new VRC World community which will bring very significant improvements and will turn the VRC community into a modern and state-of-the-art social network for VRC and RC racing from all over the world.
VRC USB Controllers available from VRC E-Shop
VRC USB controllers have been sold only through distributors and dealers so far, but are now also available directly from the VRC e-shop. The pistol grip and double stick controllers give you the true radio transmitter feel with the ease of plugging it into the USB port of your computer just like a regular joystick. The VRC USB controllers are equipped with a special micro controller and special heavy-duty potentiometers which give you excellent 8-bit resolution on steering and throttle. Exponential steering and steering trim can be adjusted inside the game! The VRC USB controllers cost just $69.00 and this includes shipping through TNT World Pack with tracking service.
