Is well worth the hassle of getting it configured

  • By robb13 from Australia on Tuesday, October 14, 2014
  • Pros: Lot more control over the aircraft
  • Cons: Needed FSUIPC to get it configured to work correctly
  • Review: Finally got round to buying the second quadrant. Should have done it long ago. Makes flying twin engines seem a lot more realistic and steering on ground is much easier. Only issue is getting it configured. Supplied documentation is near useless. Get FSUIPC (paid version). Its not expensive and the momey spent on it will be worth it however there is not much documentation for that either but it is fairly intuitive and I figured it out so cant be too hard. I also find it works ok via the USB port in the saitek yoke whereas other panels with illuminated displays dont work as they draw too much power.

  • By Jack Bogan from Vancouver, WA on Wednesday, November 06, 2013
  • Pros: Best on the market
  • Cons: Small spring tension
  • Review: My only issue is when you buy throttle levers to replace the silly ones that come with it, the tension on a small spring inside is not strong enough to hold with heavier new throttle levers!

A versatile, modular quadrant

  • By Robert from Lake Stevens WA USA on Tuesday, November 17, 2009
  • Review: I now own 3 of these quadrants: one came with my Saitek ProFlight yoke and the two others were bought new, separately. The affordability is the big attractor: not only do you get the quadrant, but screws, knobs, more than you'd initially expect; when combined with another quadrant, the modular aspect shines through. Furthering the versatility factor is the amount of programmable rocker switches on the face (3 each). All these are the pros. There's only one con: the resistance values of the trimpots inside change with time and usage, faster than appreciated. On receiving my 2nd quadrant, it was startling to notice that in spite of common setting of knobs between the two quadrants, the values on the Sim program were noticeably different. I ordered the third one and paired it with the second one for twin engine operation; the original quadrant does duty for singles. Saitek should really use better, more durable trimpots.

Would Buy Again if needed.

  • By R Bruce from Cadiz KY USA on Tuesday, March 27, 2012
  • Review: Has a problem of losing the pad and the end on the end of the mounting tightening screw. Otherwise works fine. This is my second one ganged up to make a twin-engined aircraft quadrant.

Good product, buttttt.

  • By Nathaniel H. Saunders III from Warner Robins GA USA on Thursday, April 26, 2018
  • Pros: Reacts good, and I like being able to switch knobs.
  • Cons: Weak stems
  • Review: I like the product, but the stems of the leavers are too fragile. Have broken one already.
