Saitek Pro Flight PZ44 Yoke System
5 April 2012
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.
