A classic that still delivers.

Summary: I have had CH stuff at various times through the years and they have always been good but industrial feeling not flashy which I like. They are actually by trade an industrial controller manufacturer for factory equipment and heavy machines. They make trainer sim controls for military and drone craft. CH gets a bad wrap sometimes because they are 'complex' but easy to understand with a little reading.
Summary: Right now I am pairing this with a Thrustmaster T.16000M joysticks to create a "HOTAS" set up and I am very pleased. War Thunder Detected it and the thrustmaster and let me map a lot of buttons in game. It creates a far more accurate pairing than the T.Flight X HOTAS I was using. I have to say I was never a fan of the rolling action of CH Joysticks, but a Fighterstick + pedals now are a very tempting proposition.
Summary: Solid construction. Basically the same as my flight stick from the 90's well made will probably never fail ever. . Would be nice if it had a center detent. The only reason for 4 stars is the software is in dire need of an update. That said have been able to get it work with every game I wanted to play.
Summary: Everything about this throttle feels great, but I found myself having difficulty getting used to the linear motion. The throttle slides directly forward/backwards rather than tilting through an arc, as my last throttle did. That made it a bit more difficult to feel the position of the throttle without glancing at it or using in-game feedback about the throttle position. Everything about this throttle is top-notch though!
Summary: Worked well out of the box. Easy to configure. Smooth control and has many buttons that compliment my joystick. The throttle helps with a more complete immersion into the game I play. The only downside I experienced was with the upper and lower end sensitivity of the throttle. A couple of weeks into using the throttle, I noticed I could not hit full speed or full reverse speeds as the operating system did not recognize the full range.
CH Pro Throttle-I purchased one, and you should too.

Summary: I'm familiar with CH Products; my first CH Pro Throttle, from around 2000, finally gave up the ghost, well not completely. It did still work, just not the way it was supposed to. I'm into Aces High II, an on line flight simulation game that calls for a throttle, keyboard, joy stick and foot pedals. The throttle, joystick, and foot pedals are all CH Products. I thought 12 plus years was pretty good and of course was still disappointed that it didn't last forever.
Summary: I love the layout and the function of the throttle, my only hangup is the software, that's why only 4 stars. I've had CH before, and it's the only flight sim equipment for me. But the software while better than the old stuff, is still pretty wonky, not very intuitive. I've had the equipment a month and am still learning the software. I use it for IL-2 Strumovik CoD and it's the only way to be able to have the myriad of functions you need to access without a keyboard.
Summary: This throttle is just what I was looking for to round out my flight system. Plenty of buttons with positive action, and the throttle slide is smooth and light. Made in the USA. If it had a dial or two it would be perfect, but I knew it didn't prior to the purchase, so I'll still give it 5 stars.
