Summary: A must-have item for realistic simulation of aircraft contols. At absolute minimum, you want to have throttle, vertical trim, and flaps lever (in addition to yoke and pedals of course). This device is reasonably reliable, too - it worked for me almost 4 years before it broke.
Summary: This Saitek controller is only one of the many that this company manufactures. I have a number of other controllers and panels. The quadrant has throttle, prop and mixture levers, which can be programmed to do other actions.
Summary: bought this as an addition to an original three lever control to make multi-engine controls. Works great with xplane 10. The only issue is that the computer (windows 7) locks up when it goes to sleep if I keep both throttles plugged into the usb.

Summary: Yet another well made product from Saitek, arrived early, well packaged and well made. My flight simulator would not be the same without this product, exactly matches the one that comes with the yoke and give added realism when flying planes in your game with more than one engine.
Summary: The Pro Throttle Quadrant is really a nice unit. Easy to install driver into Windows 8.1. All controls have a very smooth movement to them. Easy to program. There is a small light that lights up to show it is ready to use in FSX. That sums it up. I have no complaints with this unit.
Summary: Overall, its a good buy if you need precise control of the throttle(or collective in the case of helicopters).
Pros: I got this mainly to use with helicopter simulators for DCS, like MI-8 and UH-1H Huey. The Throttle Quadrant will offer you more precision than the throttle slider that comes on a standard control stick itself. Which is very important for helicopters, not so much with airplanes. But if you really...
Cons: It's quite pricey, and it can't really fit onto my desk. Though my desk is not very well shaped to accommodate it. The area of the Quadrant that clamps onto the desk is about 3 inches in length, and 2.5 inches in width. make sure your desk has the space to accommodate it. 3 by 2.5 inches is just ...
