Evac -if they did that i would buy it but virtue doesnt think like that.
Reclus the whatever- tadao has dropped the ball this was their chance to outshine virtue in something and they dropped the ball they should have stepped up as soon as the luxe came out.
uranjack has the right idea. amean if you put it on the outside you got another case like the macdev gun. they just dont last. literally if its insde the grips people complain bc they strip if its on the outside its oh i got shot in the charging port.

IT WILL NEVER BE PERFECT SO JUST ACCEPT WHAT THEY BRING TO THE TABLE.

it sucks but thats just how it goes man. the luxe is a proven design. although and easier charging port would be nice i dont see a bettter place logically.

And as far as virtue and tadao if one of them would have came out with one back in 08 when the luxes first came out they would have been making some jack, but instead they are 2 years late. they both screwed up and should have been making them from the start. I woudl only buy one if they had the speaker and the oled board which they dont have so sorry virtue no $180 for you lol

Add in a nice software program with being able to load different voices/settings/profiles into it and it would be perfect (to me).

The stock board is great, but my board can't change settings other than firing mode since my joystick can't move in one direction, so I wouldn't mind being able to adjust settings with my trigger...

They could easily make a charging port with a plug like the older angels.

then people would lose the plug or screw it up. i do like the idea of changing it thro trigger pull. Honestly i love how the luxes has alot of options and for the price it should. Like you can run it with macroline or no macro it comes down to personal prefrence and i think thats hwo this luxe should be. You should get 2 triggers, 2 ways to run air through the luxe, and 2 ways to change modes on it. See imo the ultimate would be an oled board that you can go through with the trigger or the buttons (like pe) but still have the voice. maybe a smaller speaker idk how that works but just saying

Actually it would be a great replacement for the stock charger for a usb charger on the board. That will make life a hell of a lot easier. The grips are going to look like any ordinary grip from virtue with the cutout window. Based on virtues past designs though i think you will still have to open the grips to charge it.

Tadao has made oled boards for the luxe. The main reason they weren't put into production was the cost to have the mold made for the grips. With the luxe still being in such small numbers compared to other guns, the return just wasn't there.

Also when having a gun that has all the modes you "Need" people wouldn't have to get a new board. Now if the luxe came with a horrible no PSP board then that would be a different thing. I think if they had a USB port standing straight up so when you opened the grips you would be able to plug it in without having to take the grips completely off or wrap them around the trigger guard. There is a little room in the frame to be able to move it by the speaker.

Got an e-mail from Virtue today. You will have to remove the grips to charge the battery and they will come with phillips head screws instead of hex head.

Well, I'm sure you could use your own screws since they can't make the threads a different size...

What's the point of USB again? Aside from updates which hardly ever happen.
