Realistic flying-Windows 8

Dennis Massie, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Three-Lever Throttle Control (PZ44) and the Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals about 3 months ago. These units replaced my Saitek Joystick. I have a Dell XPS 8500 w/Windows 8, a 460 watt power supply, i5 processor and a NVIDIA GeForce GT620 iGB DDR3 Graphic Card. I use Microsoft Flight Simulator X 2004 and the Saitek items worked as soon as I plugged them in.

Product defective

Danny, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the item in August 2013. The USB connection of the yoke would suddenly be disconnected, without any signs or warnings, 15-30 minutes into use in FSX. I suspected it was a computer and/or FSX issue, so I ignored the problem. The issue persisted for several months. I connected the yoke on a different computer with FSX. The same problem reappeared.

Not too bad.

Shawn, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: Very noisy inputs literally (about) 5 out of 6 times. Every 6th time (give or take) I plug it in, the inputs are perfectly silent. The play at the center of the joystick is too much. Rotation on any axis is not smooth unless in unusual positions. Transitioning from left to right yoke, and forward to reverse yoke is not smooth at all.

Saitek Pro flight yoke

biggjoe, Amazon
14 May 2013
  • Summary: This yoke does have some good features but also has issues as well. It is affordable and easy to set up. It does however have a problem with the pitch axis. It is sticky making precise movements difficult if not impossible. Roll axis also sticks when moving from center position. The throttle quadrant work very well and has not had any problems so far. I have not tried any other brands as of now, I plan to as I am disappointed in this yoke.

Essential for virtual flight training

  • Summary: I flew a real aircraft just days before I got the controller. The only major difference between it and reality is that you aren't actually moving.
  • Pros: Saitek

Excellent Product

Richard D., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: A really great addition to any flight sim, its a must have for the real enthusiast, much better control and feel over a joystick. Get the pedals too. They are great for turns and taxiing.
  • Pros: This Yoke system is great because it comes with the throttlle/prop/mixture controls as well. Its very easy to set up and really enhances your flight sim experience. Its somewhat durable and lasted many years - I had my first yoke for over 6 years!
  • Cons: As others have stated the throttle/prop/mix controls will start to go after a year or two. The yoke did eventually start to stick on me, but it was like 3-4 years down the road. DO NOT USE WD40.. I was reading in forums and you should not do this. Even after opening up and greasing the gears things only got worse, therefore I had to buy another. But after 6 years of heavy use I could not complain.
