Saitek Pro flight yoke
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.
Summary: This is a pretty full-featured yoke, with the side controls. It's not as well-built as I'd like...everything is plastic, except for the shaft. The plastic flexes when you attach it to the desk. Not likely to be a big deal, but it's not as durable as I'd like.
Good product but large "null zone" in "X" and "Y" axis.

Summary: I bought this yoke to use it in my Flight Simulator Software in my Mac (X-plane). The quality is quite good although it came with a very wide "null zone" which means there is a very large neutral area where the X and Y axis do not move at all (pitch and roll in an airplane).
Summary: For the cost I am not overly impressed. It runs off of USB. You have to purchase the additional power adapter if you plan on having attachments added onto it. It serves its purpose if you are just begining but for what you pay for this, you should have a full blown power adapter added to it.
Summary: I suppose it's the best available for the price. Besides the much lauded metal shaft with bearings, I was surprised at how cheaply constructed this product is. It feels very fragile, like you could crack the thin plastic with little force.
Summary: I bought this Yoke/throttle for essentially one reason -- sharpening my instrument flying skills at home. Specifically, I was looking for a yoke that actually feels like a real small plane. What do I mean by this?
