Summary: I've owned the CH Yoke for over 10 years (2003) and I'm still using it in 2013. I started using it with FS2002 and it's helped me earn my PPL...and it will help me with my instrument rating. This is an excellent product.
Summary: My computer desk has a 2 inch lip that made it difficult to mount. I had to buy longer bolts and do some carpentry to get it to stay on the desk. This probably wouldn't be a problem with most desks. It worked well once I got it mounted.
Works great, just plug in and fly, great value, windows 7 compat. Made in USA!

Summary: For any flight enthusiasts a yoke is a must. It's so much easier to fly and maneuver with a yoke as compared to a joystick, and don't even think of flying with the keyboard or mouse...that's criminal! The CH yoke was delivered fast, and I unpacked it and just plugged it in with usb and it was recognized by windows 7...and that was that. It works wonderfully and easily clamped on to my desk. It seems pretty strudy and stable too.
Summary: Bought this (from another seller) for my father who is a flight sim nut and to replace a joystick (sidewinder) that was huge but worked great for years. Apparently it worked ok for awhile and then kept responding erratically. Pulling to the left or right, diving, y and x axis completely off,etc. We tried everything including tweaking games settings, re installing files, drivers,etc and multiple "re-calibrations" with the same problem.
Summary: Google this product and read reviews from all the pilot stores,youll see this product has a poor rep.notice all negative comments are from actual pilots like myself,if you play games with this yoke you may feel its acceptible and dont really know how it supposed to function. I've owned my CH yoke for a few years and since day one its drove me crazy how poorly the yoke responds due to a flawed design.
Summary: I'm a pilot and I can honestly this is the closest yoke to the real thing I've ever seen. It is made completely made of plastic and a little light. But I have had it for a while and it has never broken. So I give it two thumbs up.
Summary: Wow this is a good flight yoke, I relocated and before I will get my bi-annual I need to get familiar with the area /frequencies/ etc and this is getting me to the next step without spending bocu bucks with a flight instructor.
Summary: This product does what it says, but it is very light weight, and made entirely of plastic. The yoke wobbles around inside the base and the clips used to mount the yoke aren't stable at all. Don't expect a lot out of the CH Products flight sim yoke.
A fantastic and durable product that will last for years.

Summary: I bought my first CH USB yoke nearly a decade ago, and only now, after a ridiculous amount of GA and commercial simming, do I feel I need a replacement. The old one was still in working order but the springs were feeling loose. You can bet that if you get one of these, it will satisfy your flying needs for a very long time.
