ListVectorPlot[ ] absolute, definite vector length

Dear Group,
is it possible to plot vectors of definite length using ListVectorPlot ?
I am trying to plot vectors starting from specified (grid) points. I would like that the vectors would be drawn exact with their length's relative to the units of the given gridpoints.
To do so I use VectorPoints > All to get only the vectors in the data (no intermediate interpolated vectors) and VectorStyle > "LeftArrow" to start the vectortails from the grid points.
What is further neeeded is an absolut VectorScale (not relative to the plot).
The Example below draws Vectors with a length of about 0.41 I would like the length's to be eact 1.0 is this in general possible with ListVectorPlot?
ListVectorPlot[Table[{{x, y}, {1, 0}}, {x, 2, 2, 1}, {y, 2, 2, 1}], VectorPoints > All, VectorStyle > ("Left" <> "Arrow"), PlotRangePadding > 1]
Regards Robert
