I would buy this product again
by Fred from White GA USA 

Review: It has everything that I wanted. I have been using a joy stick for years. But this is so much better. the only thing I would change is the buttons.  Someone needs to come up with a yoke that has button with labels so I can remember which is which.

Mac-compatible??
by RH from London UK 

Pros: Unable to comment at the moment
Cons: Doesn't work at all!
Review: Impossible to review it because it simply doesn't work at all on my new Macbook Pro. Mac doesn't even register its connection in either USB port. Inputsprocket 1.7 is now obsolete, so that can't be the problem. Unless anyone out there has a brainwave, should I conclude that the yoke is faulty?

Like flying the old Cessna 150
by Buck from Stone Mountain GA USA 

Pros: feels like the real thing
Review: Love the "Flight Sim Yoke". It it's much better than the joy sticks I've used in the past. The more I use it, the more I find I can do with it. Next, I'll add the pedals.

Small inequities
by Tom from Kingsport TN USA 

Pros: Easy to use, can leave one hand free. I like the controls as they do what you expect of them.
Cons: Pushing and pulling leaves a bit to be desired. When using normally, the shaft seems to drag at the bottom of the input hole making some nose up, nose down moves a bit erratic. If I lift up on the yoke and get rid of the drag, it works much better. But you can't constantly do that because it can throw off the left right motion. I was thinking of vaseline but I'm sure that would gum up the works.
Review: Overall the product worked as I expected. It's a little harder to get used to than a joystick, but once you do it's pretty easy.

Ch flight sim yoke
by Steve from Trinidad West Indies 

Pros: good toy for children under 10 years.
Cons: sticks, does not center. not worth the money
Review: The Ch flight sim yoke is a joke, compared with the model before this one. The model before (an off white colour) was of much better quality, and had no sticking and centering problems. I am a commercial pilot instructor and can say that the present yoke will give student pilots many bad habits.  There is a fix on youtube to replace the springs with rubber bands to help the situation. LOL Why should we have to do this mod ?

Good to Go
by Jimmy from APO AE USA 

Pros: Affordable, realistic feel
Cons: You may have to use some tape and velcro to keep it steady
Review: I bought this one because CH is a popular company and cause it was more affordable than most models. It seems to do everything I want it to do so far. If your using a table/desk without the proper edge for the hooks, roll up some corrigated cardboard and some duck-tape to create a holding area for the yoke hooks. Mine wanted to tilt back and forth, so I also put some velcro on the desk and the bottom of the yoke to keep it still and firm. From what I understand, this is also a common problem on much more expensive models, so I'm glad I didn't go that route. Works great.

Yoke Expectations
by Chicago Flyer 75 from Bloomindale, IL 

Pros: Smooth control of flight surfaces. Good trim and speed control. An asset for Instrument approaches.
Cons: Throttle and mixture handles can be difficult to use, being on the top of the case. A seperate throttle quadrant lends itself to solving some of this, however, there seems to be a conflict between the two systems.
Review: After unpacking the yoke, I found the setup quick and simple. Really, "PLUG-and-PLAY". I have been a Flight Sim enthusiast since early 1993, and had not used a yoke until now. Having used a variety of "sticks", the experience of flying with a yoke definitely enhances realism in the simulation.
As a student pilot, I found using the yoke makes worlds of difference in "how you fly". It gives a clearer understanding of real world flight.
The control inputs are sensitive enough to imitate real airplane actions, and "heavy" enough that you can expect what the plane will do given the relative movement of the controls. Initially, there were sensitivity issues, but they were overcome by changing the settings in FSX. I feel this product was a good investment.

Very Dissapointing
by student pilot from Florida 

Pros: None that I noticed.
Cons: As above.
Review: The central control shaft is very sensitive to dirt, moisture etc. It quickly became stiff and difficult to move. When it does move its oversensitive and produces too much change, so it needs constant correcting. NOT recommended.

Be Careful!!!
by Victor A. Santiago from San Juan, PR 

Pros: Kids will love it
Cons: Mattel feel and look
Review: If you just want to play around and have no serious thoughs of becoming a pilot or staying current, this is a nice pick. But if you are a pilot or a potential student pilot, looking for practice, this should definitely not be your pick. Have you heard the term "Mattel Feel and Look". This product is Cheaply made entirely of plastic with an intolerably High static friction movement that makes small movements almost impossible. It should be sold in a Toy store, not in an aviation product store.

Looks Great in the Box!
by Patrick from alvin TX USA 

Pros: Built very well, great looking, Would always purchase from mypilotstore.com friendly people to deal with!
Cons: Programing issues for controls
Review: Very hard to program, still unable to use the yoke due to programing issues. Still working on it, having problems programing the brakes and throttle controls. Built very well, very strong and secures to any desk, love the yoke just wish more instructions were involued to use the yoke quicker.

Good product for the money
by Tasso1 from Beaufort SC USA 

Pros: Easy set-up and low price
Cons: A little less responsive than I'd like, but it works OK.
Review: This is a good product but leaves a little to be desired in sensitivity (i.e. responsiveness of controls). I use it with ASA's IP trainer to learn procedure flying - it works but not as smoothly as my own airplane's controls. However, considering my plane and instructor cost me about $100 / hr vs flying procedures as much as I want from my desk, I can live with it! Precision simulation is a little challenging but adequate.

Pros: all plus

could be better
by Andy D. Gall from Faribault MN USA 

Pros: very life like
Cons: trim tabs wonder off course.... lack of instructions for setting up buttons.. very hard to attach to desk.
Review: Mounting it on a desk becomes a interesting project.. The clamps work when pushing down on the yoke, but will not hold when pulling up.. To over come this problem I mounted it on a large board and I clamp the board to the desk. The lack of setup instuctions delayed my use of this product till I figured it out by trial & error.. Once I was setup and using it and trimmed out for level flight I noticed the trim keeps moving off course and needs resetting offen..

Check your desk shape
by FDX183 from Henderson NV USA 

Pros: stated above
Cons: stated above
Review: I am very pleased with the product for it's intended purpose...The device makes flying more enjoyable. Also, you can control the airplane much better... CON's: check and make sure the edge of your deck is flat without a thicker edge...In my situation it's a little difficult to get a very tight fit, which you really need. I have to place a spacer like a tape cassette between the top of the desk and the bottom of the device in the back so when I clamp down there is a tighter fit...I would suggest they make the clamps and holding device a little stronger perhaps out of metal instead of plastic...I am not sure how long this product will last..

Review: A big help practicing IFR at home. I got the yoke w/o the foot pedals and it works fine for my purposes. The only problem I've found is the elevator control is alittle "pitchy" compared to the real thing...setting it to the lowest sensitivity helped alot.

Now I am Really Fying!
by Noel Robbins from Austin TX USA 

Pros: Solid construction, easy hook up, customization and use
Cons: None that I have found
Review: When I first looked into purchasing a yoke and pedals for flight simulator it was disappointing to find out that there was no product available with force feedback. In fact, the CH Products Flight Sim Yoke and Pedals were pretty much the only I could find, which gave me pause, because I thought without competition maybe the quality wouldn't be very good. This fear was proven unsubstantiated when I received the items in the mail. Immediately I knew from the weight of the box that they couldn't possibly be flimsy, and after opening the packaging (which was excellent as well) I examined solidly constructed, heavy-weight devices to my pleasure. I simply plugged them into the computer and started flying. By changing a few of the control commands in flight simulator I easily customized the yoke to the types of aircraft I fly. The attitude dial on the face of the yoke helped to tweek it in as I calibrated it, and there has been no need for re-calibration or adjustment since. The fact that there is no force feedback has not come to mind since I received this product because it does not need it. The spring action of the yoke does the trick, and while it does not feel exactly like flying a real airplane, your mind is so taken up with all the other aspects of flying that it doesn't matter. It feels real enough for solid practice. I have a friend who learned how to fly back in the 1980's who tried it, and he said he would have given anything to have this set-up when he went through flight school. In particular, it is in performing slips and cross-wind landings that the yoke and pedals show their practical value, he said, but personally having already made numerous virtual flights around my region with the aid of real aeronautical charts and an airport/facility directory, the only thing missing from the feeling of actually flying in my opinion is air turbulence. I love this product!

Like night & day compared to my previous joystick
by Allen from Cressona PA USA 

Pros: Made flying a lot more enjoyable & more realistic.
Review: My only problem was that the prop control once pulled back from the 100% position would only return to about 70% when pushed fully forward again. I compensated by switching the prop & mixture control.Calibrating didn't help. Little bit of spring noise. Not that botherson.

by Paul from Spring Grove IL USA 

Pros: Well made, plug it in and it's ready. Program settings are a breeze
Cons: Desk top clamp mount takes some getting used to.
Review: A real cockpit cannot be duplicated by a private pilot, but CH Products Flight Sim Yoke gets very close. I have used joysticks and other yokes before, but this is the best. THE BEST. If you are serious about simulator training or realistic learning, get this yoke. You will not regret it.

Consider before Purchasing
by Jon from Fort Lee NJ USA 

Pros: Inexpensive, great step up from mouse or joystick
Cons: Difficult to precisely control the vertical axis
Review: Consider that the Y axis (elevator) on the yoke sticks at center. It takes significant polishing and lubricating to get smoother movement. Its much harder to keep the aircraft stable laterally, and makes training difficult. However it’s a great improvement over using a joystick or mouse, esp. with the levers and switches. Considering its only $115 compared to well over $1000 for others, I think it’s a good value.

Required for IFR training
by David from Winchester VA USA 

Pros: Works with a Mac and XPlane
Cons: Does not secure to the desktop without some help
Review: This is a must have for anyone working on the instrument rating. I use it with XPlane and Mac OS X for flying the approaches before I do it for real. Great product. You also need to the pedals to make a perfect setup. Only complaint is that it requires a book or something between the yoke mounts and the desktop or table surface.

Decent Sim Yoke
by robert from enfield CT USA 

Pros: Works reasonably well
Cons: Seems overpriced for the quality.
Review: I purchased the yoke for Flight Simulator 2004 - it works very well. For the price, it seems like it could have been made better. I feel this yoke is similar in quality to a no-name brand you might buy from a computer fair for $29.95. The clamp is a screw design and requires a desktop thickness of about 1". Fortunately my desk is 1" and the yoke holds tight. I wish that the quality of the unit was better - especially for the price that it is listed for. Hopefully it will last. I'd recommend the unit, only because I don't know of a better unit to recommend.

Pros: very realistic.

Great product for pilots
by Harry from Poway CA USA 

Pros: realistic, easy set up, adequate functions, USB connection
Review: Gives me the feeling of actually being in the seat of the plane. Auto centering of the yoke gives the feeling of air force on the control surfaces. The numerous buttons and 5 sets of axis controls are more than I need. The hat switch allows me to instantly switch between cockpit views in 4 directions. Works great with 3 versions of microsoft flight simulator.

Pros: Comfortable design, smooth movement.

Review: "without a center detent allowing the ultimate in control". I don't understand why they use this as an advertising feature. Thats a downfall more than anything. Tough to trim properly due to this. The mounting system is not the greatest and the nuts and bolts strip easily. I've already replaced mine twice. If your desk isn't at least 1 1/2 inch thick, you need to put something between the legs and the desk to secure it. Other than those things, this yoke rocks!

Never back to sticks
by Heikki Sillman from Finland 

Review: CH YOKE is small and light but fits to big hands too. All levers and buttons are clear and easy to handle. But the wheel is very noisy, the springs are moaning all the time You pull or push the wheel.
One kind of handbook should be needed telling about adjusting the sensitiveness. First my Cessna was a moon rocket, then the B737 needed ten miles runway and now all planes are between rocket and plane. In the settings in FS 2004 the sensitiveness is near zero.

Review: I just have a little experience on the real one, this yoke gave me a fantastic delight on flying a real one.

CH yoke problem
by Dave from Australia 

Pros: Useable-Just
Cons: Flat spot - mechanical
Review: Works well in all aspects except for a dead spot - mechanical - around centre of yoke elevator movements, this dead spot has been worked on a number of times without success, and it makes landing the heavy stuff very very hard. It could also do with some more switches on it.

Very Realistic
by Dave Summerfield from Cumberland, MD 

Pros: very realistic, especially when shooting approaches
Cons: needs more sensitive trim and a better calibrated artificial horizion
Review: This yoke is much better than the control stick I used previously. It responds to control pressure and not control movement similiar to a real aircraft. I would like the trim to be more realistic and the artificial horizon does not seem to be calibrated exactly. I guess a lot depends upon the software you are using the yoke with.

Simulation Made More Realistic
by CenVA from Richmond, VA 

Review: This is an excellent product for the price and features. I use it with MS Flight Simulator X. There are issues with how the devices reacts with FSX, but I feel that is Microsoft's insistence on pushing your video/graphics card to the maximum. Otherwise, the device works fine.

Incredible product for the price
by Jack from Maine 

Pros: delight for the price and application
Review: This product brings flight simulator to the next level of realism. As a pilot, this is as good as it gets sitting at home. I'm totally impressed with this product, it's one of the few items one purchases that exceeds expectations. From my experience it was a plug and play item straight from the box - simple and effective.

Works as advertised!!!
by Ronald Mixon from Lamar, MO 

Pros: Self centering and smooth and looks really good.
Cons: Short back travil on the yoke
Review: The yoke is very programable and feels smooth and solid.

Don't confuse the wheel on the left side for an elevator trim wheel...it is not! It is a travil center selector.

I use the left rocker switch for elevator trim and that can be programed in FSX to be as aggressive as you want.

It could use more switches.

I think it could use more travel... in a real airplane the yoke has far more aft travel. I do realise there is a space problem so the back stroke on the yoke could have had a telescoping action to gain travil.

Review: The only problem you really should address is the clamping arrangement. My desk is just over ¾" thick and I have to insert spacers to enable the clamp fingers to bite. Do you make alternative fingers that would allow clamping to anything less than an inch thick?
Otherwise, the yoke works as I expected.

by A Customer from Seattle, Wa 
Review: I have been flying Flight Sim for years using a high quality joystick. In preparation for job interviews and check rides I have been using Flightsim a lot more and the CH yoke is as close to reality as I can get. It only cost a few dollars more than my joystick did five years ago and is well worth the price.
