Summary: Just got this to replace an older Ch that I picked up cheap to get everything up and going. WOW what a difference!!! I did what many feedbacks said and went straight to Saitek's downloads page and downloaded the latest and greatest drivers instead of installing the discs......
Summary: Worth the investment. I use it to brushen up before a flight or checkride. Helped me get back in the swing of things without having to dish out on plane rental. Flight instructors can tell when you practice!!!!
Summary: 1. This is the best controller ever made for flight simulator(any simulation game) 2. Most realistic I have ever used in my lifetime 3. Smoothest and strongest Design EVER! 4. I DEFIANTLY RECOMMEND THIS ANYONE THINKING OR WANTING TO GET THIS 5. I congratulate the seller as well (Nice Job) 6.
Summary: A really great addition to any flight sim, its a must have for the real enthusiast, much better control and feel over a joystick. Get the pedals too. They are great for turns and taxiing.
Pros: This Yoke system is great because it comes with the throttlle/prop/mixture controls as well. Its very easy to set up and really enhances your flight sim experience. Its somewhat durable and lasted many years - I had my first yoke for over 6 years!
Cons: As others have stated the throttle/prop/mix controls will start to go after a year or two. The yoke did eventually start to stick on me, but it was like 3-4 years down the road. DO NOT USE WD40.. I was reading in forums and you should not do this. Even after opening up and greasing the gears thin...
Summary: My son loves this setup. He combined it with Microsoft Flight Simulator Gold Edition and now we can't get him out of his room! A pilot friend of mine said it would be a good investment for an aspiring pilot. We'll see!
