I ordered the Fragfx Fragchuck (PC/MAC).
I will let you know if it works, not sure if its much different than that model.

The dongle It comes with has a switch that says PS3/PC.

I ordered the PC model also. Comes from China, so who knows when it will get here.

I see the little "F" button as a shoulder button on the top of the controller at the front - is that button mappable through the XIM?

Will let you know when mine arrives. It's saying it is in US Customs right now. I think i remember reading on here that some people had issues with one of the top buttons mapping correctly.

I looked at the picture and description and i didnt see anything that says ps3 on it. I do see a controller/keyboard switch though.

Been using the Fragchuck Fx with the APEX for almost 2 years, works seamlessly.

burnttoast,

Do you know if it will work native on PS4 in keyboard mode? I am wanting to try out on warzone?

May you very kindly answer this question I posted above  8)

I see the little "F" button as a shoulder button on the top of the controller at the front - is that button mappable through the XIM?

So it finally arrived yesterday. Just so you guys know...i got the PC version. I normally use the NAV controller with a G502.

1.) Native on PS4 in keyboard mode.
     Recognized the chuck.
     There was an input delay. (at least a 1/2 second delay) unplayable!
     One of the top trigger buttons did not work..
     I did not try in controller mode but im sure it will not work.
     So, basically a no go on this model.

2.) Paired with the XIM.
     Worked great except the same trigger button doesnt work.
     
Im going to try on PC this weekend and im sure all buttons will work as intended. In my opinion, it is not as comfortable as the NAV. It may be because I'm comfortable with the NAV. The only advantage on PC is having that extra button on top. Also, no extra software on PC from what i understand.

Thanks! That's a shame about the extra trigger button not functioning. That's pretty much the sole reason I was considering buying it, that extra button being accessible while still being able to keep my thumb on the analog stick would have been really handy.

I'm surprised there hasn't been an official XIM controller optimised to be used alongside minimalist mice. The Nav is awesome but using it alongside a G305, I've had to make a lot of work-arounds to cover all bases and I'd still love to have more accessible buttons (I'd love it if the X and O buttons on it were on the back and vertically aligned so they could both be pressed with the index or middle finger easily).

I got mine today, It works on PC and PS4.

I just don't like the shape, or the buttons.  Not being able to map that extra button sucks.
It feels cheap, and the company is dodgy.  The trigger buttons are mushy, the analog stick is too long.
I think if you have big hands or something this may be a good alternative.  Can't understand why there isn't a high end one handed controller that is worth the $$$.

I regret getting it, I'll probably stick to the NAV for COD, may use the the chuck for PC games.  I hope Sony releases a updated Nav soon.

I'm amazed there hasn't been an reputable XIM controller  automatic optimised for use alongside minimalist mice. The Nav shop  is remarkable but using it alongside a G305, I've needed to make a variety of work-arounds to cover all bases and I'd nevertheless love to have greater available buttons

Begone spambot.
