Showing 1-10 of 51
I've had the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke + Pedals and the CH Flight Sim Yoke + Pedals + Quadrant. This is what you need to know.

Summary: Alright people, listen up. This is the review you want. If you are like a normal person and can't afford the $600-$1000 yoke from PFC without getting divorced then you are undoubtedly comparing this yoke (or the CH Eclipse, same thing really) to the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke.
Summary: I've had this for several years now for use with my X-plane sim on Mac and overall I've been happy with it. The hat switch on the right side of the yoke no longer works when you push it up, but down and right and left still work, so this is a minor irritation but I don't regret buying it.
Summary: I am giving this product an average review - not because it doesn't work as advertised, but because it is true that the stability of the product degrades over time and that it will need to be replaced every 2 years or so, and that's with fairly infrequent use.
Summary: I don't have anything other than the real thing (airplane) to compare this to, so maybe this is as good as it gets -- but I was disappointed in this yoke at the start and it gets worse as time goes by.
Summary: The pitch sticks so bad that it's nearly impossible to maintain level flight. I sent it back and it was returned saying it was fixed! Yea right! All they did was spray some kind of silicone lube on the shaft and called it fixed! The pitch SHOULD work as smoothly as the roll.
Summary: Great product! I use it on a Mac machine and am quite happy with it. Takes a bit to get used to it if you've used only a joy stick before but now I wouldn't trade it back. The only little chink is that the clamps are very tight to open. No big deal. All in all, a good item!
Summary: OK, I'm an old private pilot who has also flown Microsoft Flight Simulator before Microsoft owned the product but with this yoke, you really really add to the realism far beyond my expectations.
If you're going to get a flight sim at all, get this too!

Summary: The whole point of getting a flight simulator is to enjoy flying a plane. A keyboard is NOT the way to enjoy anything and a joystick isn't much better. The only downside is poor documentation.
