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.

Looks can be deceiving.

A. Petropolis, Amazon
12 September 2010
  • Summary: As an instrument rated private pilot, I have used all versions of Microsoft FS to "practice" instrument flying, including the most current FSX. I have use a joystick for years, but was looking to add a little more realism to my sim experience. What a mistake I made buying the Saitek yoke. It has been a very frustrating several weeks. First of all, looks can be deceiving.

The SAD TEK Flight Yoke- should have Known better

J. rudy "Mole Man", Amazon
16 November 2007
  • Summary: I have 3 words for this yoke, or I mean 3 letters...RMA. I don't know where to begin. First of all is 4:00 am and I have been screwing around with this thing for over 14 hours... urrrg. Yes you guessed it-phantom buttons. After all the warnings from you guys on here, I had to buy it anyway. But you see I thought I was getting a "new fixed" one. But guess what people, the are not. I am a real pilot and I have used CH yoke for years.

Two Units with phantom button pushes

George Stevens, Amazon
2 November 2007
  • Summary: First unit exhibited phantom button selections and was unusable. The Saitek web site was not helpful, and I was told to return unit for replacement by thier tech rep. Return and replacement by Amazon went very smoothly. Good job there. Second Unit had similar problems as well as x and y axis signal spikes that made control impossible. Have returned second unit for refund.

Horrible

Firepac, Amazon
29 October 2007
  • Summary: Very horrible product. Recently purchased this yoke and was experiencing phantom key presses like many who have already stated. Exchanged it for a new one and still experiencing the same problem. Apparently Saitek has no intentions on fixing the problem.

Does not work

Craig S "Kerosene31", Amazon
25 October 2007
  • Summary: I do not recommend this product. Many people are having problems with random button presses. This makes the product unusable. I would be flying in MS Flightsim and all of a sudden, my landing gear could drop without warning, flaps move, etc. I sent the product back after being told to do so by Saitek support. As soon as I unplugged this product and went back to my old stick, the problem went away.
