Komodo Cyclic Base Unit Guide

Here is a quick start guide for the Komodo Cyclic range of controls for Helicopter Flight Simulators.

What’s included:

In the box you will receive a Komodo Multi-Grip base unit, a 2m USB lead and x4 stick on feet.  Simply stick the feet onto the base unit in the 4 corners to help protect the surface that the unit is mounted on. 

Attaching the grips:

To connect a Komodo Cyclic shaft to the base unit, carefully locate the alignment notch on the cyclic with the corresponding part on the base unit. When these are lined up push the cyclic into place and tightly screw the connectors together. Ensure there is no play in the connection. To remove simply unscrew and carefully pull the cyclic shaft out.

Switching between grips:

When you have connected the shaft, plug the USB lead into the base unit first and then plug the other end into the computer. The Komodo Cyclic will then install itself. When switching cyclic grips you will need to unplug the USB lead, change the grip and then plug the USB lead back in. If you do not do this the computer will not recognise the change in grip and some of the buttons may not work.


The control limits will be set prior to shipping, but you will have to calibrate them in your game or helicopter simulator as with any other joystick. You will also have to assign the axis to the correct control in the software.
