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. 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.
Summary: The throttle quadrant is perect I love the rocker switches and the detents noticible when bringing into reverse feather or activating thrust revesers. The yoke is unnecessarly bulky and has a poor range of motion. The yoke moves 4 inches in and out and only 45 degrees left or right, compared to a real yoke which offers upwards of a foot of movement in and out and 90 degrees left or right.
Great .. BUT ... Recent model still has phantom behavior

Summary: I have a newer model, which I confirmed with Saitek support. Curiously, I still have the "phantom key" issue but just for the hat switch views. Support said it could not be the older "hardware related" phantom issue, but was likely a loose or crushed wire inside the yoke. I'm sorry but this is still unacceptable. These are basic quality issues. It amazes me that they can invest so much time into designing such a wonderful and realistic yoke ...
Summary: The yoke and throttle quadrant are well designed and very sturdy. They attach easily (no instructions on assembly) and hold tight. The description of the throttle states that it comes with extra knobs (different colors) and every review I've read states the same. Mine did not however. In addition, the throttle quadrant stopped working after 2 days. The light shows it's on, but there is no response.
