Build quality is not good and very difficault to recalibrate to the center.

Barry Chung, Amazon
19 August 2015
  • Summary: Not very accurate and centered. I have tried every method to reset and recalibrate to the center both from the driver and the X-Plane 10. It is horrible and I have to use both aileron and elevator trims to cancel it out.

big null zone problem

moqs, Amazon
1 August 2015
  • Summary: After reading several of the conflicting reviews, thought I would give this a try after using a joystick exclusively since buying fsx. Having owned a couple real aircraft and flown a variety of others I realize that a yoke costing a hundred dollars or so is not going to feel like the real thing, but...

The quality level wasn't as good as I hoped

Tracy L. Duke, Amazon
26 May 2015
  • Summary: The quality level wasn't as good as I hoped. The yoke wobbled quite a bit and movement wasn't recognized equally when turning left to right (it took more distance to recognize movement to the left than it did to the right after being calibrated).

I've had the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke + Pedals and the CH Flight Sim Yoke + Pedals + Quadrant. This is what you need to know.

Christopher Eastridge, Amazon

  • Summary: Alright people, listen up. This is the review you want. If you are like a normal person and can't afford the $600-$1000 yoke from PFC without getting divorced then you are undoubtedly comparing this yoke (or the CH Eclipse, same thing really) to the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke.

Poor Response for Flight Sim

Matt, Amazon
7 September 2012
  • Summary: The yoke itself has a significant mechanical dead band for both pitch and roll. This makes it difficult to perform fine control over your aircraft. The pitch range of motion is also significantly less than the roll range. It's just not that realistic for flight sims.

Good product except for the stupid dead zone

Andy Goldstein, Amazon
13 August 2012
  • Summary: Mechanically, this is a nicer product than the CH Products yoke, what with the stainless steel shaft and the separate throttle quadrant, and the extra throttles and all the other devices you can stack up with it.

Beware of the aileron one-sided dead zone

Alan Rivière "Maggie's Dad", Amazon
16 July 2012
  • Summary: The aileron control wheel of my Saitek yoke has a large dead zone to the left, about 10 degrees. In other words, the airplane would not bank left until I took up the 10-degree slack. There is no dead zone to the right. Dead zone is not bad if it is uniformly distributed throughout the control.

Not really nice

alexandre fabro, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • Summary: I did have it for 1 year only. I was a high user in flight simulation but actually the potentiometers did broke so the overall yoke was broken. It did some fast move around the center so the calibration was just impossible.

Unusable due to dead zones

P. C., Amazon
17 May 2010
  • Summary: Two star, and that is without the phantom key issue... Coming from CH product, I was hoping the metal axle with "ball bearing" some reviewers mentioned would be a nice upgrade. However, there is no ball bearing, just the axle rubbing against two teflon/plastic rings, preventing smooth motions.

Beware of dead zone in Saitek yoke. CH Products yoke is better.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 April 2010
  • Summary: I've been a flight simulator enthusiast for years. When I first started this hobby years ago, CH Products was the only affordable yoke around, and it worked great. Recently I decided to try the Saitek yoke, figuring that the ball bearings and metal shaft would be superior to the CH Products yoke.
