Saitek Pro flight yoke

biggjoe, Amazon
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: If you're looking to pursue this as a hobby or possibly train with a simulator, it really is something that you must have. I would definitely buy it.
  • Pros: Puts the pilot's mind at ease. Great product for ultimate simulation.
  • Cons: Little big and hard to set up if you plan to take it back down.

Ok...could be a bit more durable.

J. Hughes, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • 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.

  • Summary: As a pro pilot the feel of the yoke is a bit stiff and not as responsive as the real one. It tends to stick at times as you push or pull.

I really liked the throttle controls

Patrick O'Mara, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • Summary: I really liked the throttle controls, but yoke was sluggish, even trying different setting I was over correcting all the time. Feels more like an analog controller then digital.

Good product but large "null zone" in "X" and "Y" axis.

SR FL, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • 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.

Better than keyboard or joystick

James C., Newegg
29 January 2011
  • Summary: I assumed that this yoke would be an upgrade from my current CH USB yoke but I was wrong. It does have more features but a professional yoke it is not.
  • Pros: Built in timer and good mount for desktop. Comes with a seperate throttle quadrant. USB Drivers installed automatically on Windows 7.
  • Cons: Cheaply made. Even though the yoke shaft has a metal sleeve the pitch action is not smooth throughout it's range. Roll is OK. Timer buttons are not marked very well.

Does the job.

Questionable Edict, Amazon
4 February 2010
  • 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.

Does NOT feel real, but otherwise good

Justine E. Haupt, Amazon
20 December 2009
  • 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?
