A great product!
by Paul from Phoenix AZ USA 

Pros: Excellent quality for the money! Operates just as it is supposed to.
Cons: Nothing I didn't mention above
Review: Product works as advertised. I'm very happy with the smoothness of the yoke; it doesn't bind. It does stick every once in awhile, however if I were to put some lubricant on I I'm sure it would stop.

I purchased another throttle quadrant at the same time as the yoke so that I could set up for twin engine operation. Throttles work excellent together. I would like to see a knob to adjust the friction, however.

Having Issues with the Throttle Quadrant
by Jason from Saint Charles MO USA 

Cons: Throttle Quadrant does NOT connect with the Yoke
Review: To be honest, I am unsatisified with this purchase. The connector on the throttle quadrant was delivered in a "broken condition", and I'm unable to connect it to the yoke. I even had 2 friends of mine who are extremely computer saavy take a look, and they said they could not repair it. I would NOT recommend purchasing this.

by Edward from Milford CT USA 
Review: I have seven grandchildren ranging from seven to 16. After taking them to the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, CT, they were excited about trying the simulators equipped with Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and rudder pedals.

I ordered the yoke and throttle system to use on my computer at home with Flight Simulator X. The yoke and throttle system were easy to set up and offers the children to opportunity to fly Flight Simulator using other than our joystick. All the children have used this system and are going the the lessons associated with Flight Simulator X.

I hope that your system has raised their level of awareness to aviation and associated careers.

by Arturo from Carolina PR USA 

Pros: User friendly. Fast set-up

I would like to purchase more options but need to work with what I purchased first.
by Dennis from Novi MI USA 

Pros: Realistic look and feel.
Cons: Response to impute needs to be reviewed.
Review: First the yoke does not rotate 180 degrees. Maybe it is my set up but the impute does not respond quickly effort or too quickly other times. On the ground after landing the rudder toggle does not respond to my impute all the time. Maybe I need some more time using the system. I would like to invest in the rest of the options (rudder pedals, radios, full panel) but I want to make sure these work as advertised first. I would like to view in person the other parts of the system but do not know where to go to see them. I have not piloted a real aircraft in some time so maybe I am a little rusty.

Not the best yoke feel
by Michael from Ruskin FL USA 

Pros: Many switches, timer/clock
Cons: Unrealistic and rough motion for elevator control
Review: I love everything about this product except for the way it feels. Up elevator/down elevator motions are rough and unrealistic. For the price, I would expect a more realistic (or at least smooth!) motion. I've never used CH Products' line, but wonder if they suffer the same problem.

Beatiful look and feel !
by Richard E. from Clackamas OR USA 

Pros: Look and smooth precise function are top notch !
Cons: None
Review: Saitek products have an outstanding reputation and these exceed my expectations. To be installed in a sim cockpit I am in the process of building so they have not been tested operationally yet. The Yoke is beautiful and the multi-function timer is a nice addition. The action is smooth and precise feeling and the polished stainless shaft has a much better feel than the CH Products plastic shaft on my previous yoke. The Throttle Quadrant is equal in quality and feel. I am eager to place the Yoke and Quadrant in service.

Excellent!!
by AirplaneBoy999 from Chicago IL USA 

Pros: easy and fast
Cons: kind of heavy
Review: If you have microsoft flight simulator but you don't know the controls or think it's too hard then this is the perfect machine for the job. It makes all the flying much easier and faster. When you are putting the peices together it is really simple. If I were you I would really like this product.

by Michael from Davis CA USA 
Pros: Easy set-up. Very realistic.
Cons: Would like to see instrctionswritten for a novice -- and not for a computer programmer.
Review: We found this system to be very challenging. The set-up was very easy and it went together quickly. I would have liked to see a better,more descriptive illustration of the controls. Being almost totally without experience in this field, though, did present some issues -- which we solved by a more careful reading of each element. The issue we are having at this moment concerns the wheel -- it must be turned far left (at least 30 degrees) to get any reaction from the aircraft. The slightest nudge of a right turn results in a quick reaction of the craft. This can be frustrating. I am sure there must be some setting somewhere that can solve this issue. All in all, I can see where those with some piloting experience would jump right into this thing, but starting from scratch and without piloting experience, brings a challenge. But we are having fun with it.

Works Well With OS X
by Donald from Knoxville TN USA 

Pros: Compatible with OS X, nice resistance to control input, good detents for neutral positions
Cons: None, after 3 months of daily use.
Review: The flight yoke and throttle quadrant are well constructed, and the yoke's resistance to changes in pitch is pretty good too. Although it is hard for me to remember what the Cessna 150 yoke felt like years ago when I was taking flight lessons.

The only other flight sim yokes, and throttle quadrants, that are of higher quality that the Saitek products, are professional grade equipment, and cost 10 x the $$ (at least).

Excellent performance!
by Mike T. from West Chicago IL USA 

Pros: Smooth operation, conviently placed buttons, secure mounting
Cons: NONE!!!
Review: This yoke is great! I have always used a joystick for years and the difference is amazing. Much better control and the buttons are in great positions for easy activation. The action is very smooth in, out, left and right. The throttle quadrant is nice to have making throttle adjustments more precise and using the other levers for flaps and depending on the aircraft either prop pitch or spoilers. The mount is very secure and well designed, there is no movement in the unit at all. The top has a nice surface that I use for my lighted keyboard. All in all, this is a great product and I would recommend it.

Dead stick
by shakey pilot from  

Cons: I used it only onceand the yoke and throttle quadrant were a dead stick. It cost me more than $20.00 to ship it back to the manufacture.
Review: I'm disappointed how it performed. It worked once then was a dead stick. I also found it difficult to load the drivers and software on my computer with windoes t home premium. I 'd like to able to give it a good work out. I had a Mirosoft sidwinder. It finaly pooped out. I felt that the Satiek flight control were the best system out there. maybe I just got a bad one. But it took me twice to have my warranty ticket processed. The frist rep. made promised he could keep and did not complete my ticket. I set him three e-mails. No response. I had to talk to another tech rep to have my warranty ticket processed. I have a seizure disorder so the flight sim program and contyrol is the closest thing I'll eveer get to piloting a plane. That's why I use the sim insteaqd of my xbox games.

I would highly recomend this product
by Bill Wenzel from Pensacola Florida 

Pros: Ease of set-up and programing. Very smooth in all flight modes as is the throttle quadrant. NO sticking or bad spots anywhere. I love the crono in the yoke also.
Cons: I fly FS-X and I wish i had this sooner. NO CONS
Review: This unit is very realistic. It works as a cessna 182 or a Moony Bravo so well, it's unreal. It works great with other aircraft in the stable as well. It lacks nothing! Can't wait to get my rudder pedals.

Good product if you buy rudder controls
by A Customer from North Miami FL USA 

Pros: good price ,great to have a yoke and not a stick , controls on yoke a plus , throttle has reverse on it cool .
Cons: soft ware very hard to use for a computer novice like me ( I use Fsx settings )
Review: Was sad that I could not control the rudder with the throttles that well, otherwise a good product for the price just need to get rudder controls now . did sense some instability in the centering on the yoke but it may be dude to my slow computer

This is the real deal!
by Duncan from Colorado Springs CO USA 

Pros: very realistic, well made, easy to install
Cons: can't think of any - would buy it again, in fact I have!
Review: I rate this product a 5 because it is so realistic! I am a pilot of a Mooney and this yoke and throttle make me feel like I am in my own cockpit. The yoke is made of a heavy duty plastic and metal so it feels good in the hands and not like a toy. The throttle is true to the set up in my plane, including range of levers and feel of the knobs. It's also nice to have the clock in the yoke for timing IFR approaches.

Useful but hard to program
by A Customer from hillsboro OR USA 

Pros: Good for learning muscle memory items and realistic power settings
Cons: Hard..if not impossible to program. Saitek should get rid of the flip switches and replace them with flap and gear controls.
Review: For basic simming the yoke is nice and the throttle quadrant adds some realism. I'm a helicopter pilot and working to get my instrument/comm CFI ratings in airplanes so the throttle quad helps with muscle memory and allows fairly precise power, prop, and mixture settings. The flip switches on the throttle quadrant are, frankly, useless unless you have time to figure out how to program them...which I don't.

Excellent for keeping flying skills active
by GW from Medina OH USA 

Pros: Feel and function
Cons: No force feedback
Review: I work in the flight simulator industry and the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle Quadrant combined with a good PC-based flight simulator provides an excellent and cost effective way to keep your flying skills up to date when you do not have much cockpit time due to weather or life circumstances. Will ultimately save you money when you get back in the cockpit.

Pros: Its pretty. The clock is very useful.
Review: This yoke has dumb faults, it seems the quality control is not good. For example, there are conection problems.

Improves flying verses Joy stick.
by Robert from Montgomery TX USA 

Pros: Take off and landings (plus with autopilot off) flying the plane is much better with the controls right in front of me. Not having to work with joy stick and keyboard has made a world of difference.
Cons: Only problem I had at first was assigning the throttles, and learning how to have the red and blue handle throttles in a reverse position (at the top of the quadrant) and the black handle throttle is at the bottom.
Review: After using a joy stick for some 10 years, flying FS2000 and recently upgrading to FSX, (Windows 7) the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle Quadrant System has improved my flying 100%. Trim is easier with controls on the yoke, especially at takeoff, I do not have to look at the keyboard. I like to fly commercial from 737 to 777's and find this system is by far more authentic than with a joy sitck for these planes. This system is responsive to the planes and having the throttle quadrant system, I can control the plane better.   It did take a while to plan what button or lever would work which aspect of the plane, i.e automatic pilot on-off; ATC message-instructions; panel lights on-off; wheels up-down; etc.. I use the red handle throttle for flaps, the blue handle for spoilers, and black for engine throttle. When slowing down, I can raise the spoilers very slightly. Using the sopt view (rear) you can see how high the spoilers are.   Using the mouse with my old system was unreliable. I am very happy with the system, and would not hesitate to recommend the system and MyPilotStore. com to anyone.

Good choice
by Richard S. from California City CA USA 

Pros: Solid construction... you'd have to go out of your way to break this. It doesn't look like a toy. Buttons, toggles, and switches are also solid.
Cons: None
Review: The yoke and throttle quadrant surpassed my expectations. I am very pleased with the quality of construction. I also bought the peddles and an extra throttle quadrant. They are also well made. In hind-sight, I should have purchased the throttle, prop, mixture axis instead of the extra quadrant. I am a student pilot and purchased it primarily to help me with flight training. The time I've spent in simulation has helped me with all aspects of the real thing. I use Flight Simulator X deluxe and the set-up was fairly easy.

Review: I find that the product has a distinct area where you move the yoke and nothing happens so smooth operations are a bit bothersome otherwise the product is stil fun to use.

Review: Very Realistic action on all aircraft in MS Flight Sim 10. Smooth movement through the yoke and handy switches for Landing Gear, Flaps, Brakes, etc. Throttle Quad gives realistic operation to your "engines" with lots of programability. Worth the price for the experience.

It's OK, but not great
by Brian from Brandon, MS  

Review: I'm training for my instrument and wanted something realistic to practice with at home. Having the yoke and throttle is nice, but not great. Despite turning the sensitivity down as far as it will go, the yoke is still way to touchy in pitch. Roll is better. Its almost impossible to get it trimmed properly.

The buttons and all are great, and the whole system is built well. Just wish it was a bit more like the real thing. If you fly real airplanes regularly, this isn't quite the ticket to putting the airplane in your office, unfortuantely.

Solid yoke, sticky throttles
by A Customer from Maryland, USA 

Pros: Decently realistic setup for the price
Cons: Sort of bulky yoke unit, sticky throttles
Review: The yoke unit feels very solid and has a decent feel with spring resistance. (Note though you need a desktop with a minimum of about 2 inches of overhang so the bottom clamp can firmly grasp it). I was used to using a joystick for so long, that it took awhile to get used to, but that would be true for any yoke I think.

The plastic throttle unit was a little disappointing at first, because there is supposed to be an "idle detent" (notch) at the zero point, with reverse thrust behind that. My unit though was sticky, and it took a lot of wiggling to get it out of that idle notch. Not good when you're at idle and need thrust quickly! I spent some time "wearing" out the notch by moving it back and forth until it no longer stuck, and then it was fine. Otherwise, it's a nice unit.

Good Product!
by Pushntin from APO AP USA 

Pros: "mypilotstore" didn't waste any time getting me my order. Thank you for your prompt service!
Cons: No cons for mypilotstore. The saitek company on the other hand needs to do a better quality check before sending products out the door.
Review: The Saitek Pro Flight Yoke/throttle quad combo arrived within a week! Everything worked, except I couldn't get the yoke to calibrate. It was off by a degree or two and would cause the acft to roll. I had to open the flight yoke case, and noticed the yoke gears were not alligned properly. My guess is the QA inspector didn't look close enough or he/she would've seen the misallignment. No sweat. The yoke works perfect now! For other potential customers, beware before opening the case. Not only are you getting into something that might be more than you can handle, but I'm pretty sure that I've voided my waranty (a risk I was willing to take). I didn't want to go through the shipping/handling, be it that I'm in Korea, for a 5 minute fix.

stout but sloppy
by Jim from ROA 

Pros: Fairly well built. Not terribly expensive
Cons: sloppy, inaccurate response.
Review: Being a pilot with over 1000 hours (Private, multi, instrument) but having not flown in several years, I purchased this to freshen my procedures and also allow my wife to become familiar with the basics. Sadly, the yoke has lots play in both axis, and makes flying X-plane much harder than flying the real thing. Trim is virtually impossible to use accurately. Im going to disassemble the unit and see if there is any way to eliminate the slop. If not it is headed for E-bay if I can find a better unit...

Maybe this time
by Richard from Tucson AZ USA 

Pros: convenient layout, solid construction (for this price level).
Cons: quadrant not usable without yoke.
Review: I had an identical yoke and after a couple years of intermittent use, it too became intermittent. First the stopwatch display started going on and off and then later the yoke axes seemed to behave in unexpected ways. But I do like the arrangement of switches and buttons and so I bought another. So far, it's working just fine. I cannot use the supplied mounting mechanisms because they protrude below the table where my keyboard tray is. But I mounted the yoke and the yoke and quadrant on a piece of 1/4 inch plywood and now have a portable unit that I can move away when I need the desk for buying toys and paying bills. The quadrant is good, but has a special connector that means it must be plugged into the yoke. Too bad it's not a USB connector since then I could use the quadrant from my old set as well.

GLAD I CHOSE THIS
by Richard from Houston TX USA 

Pros: Ball bearing, stainless steel shaft. 4 additional USB inputs. 3 lever, 12 button throttle quadrant. Great controller manager software (SST). All expandandable
Cons: Throttle quaf only comes with 3 levers instead of 6, (but a 2nd Saitek throttle quad canbe added for little cost!).
Review: The Saitek yoke and throttle combo is one of those "no brainer" deals. If you've researched the options that you have out there when it comes to yokes for flight Sims as detailed as I have, you would have found that there 2 choices in flight sim yokes that fall in the $150.-$200. bracket. Then the next choice goes right into the $500.00 level. OK, so that said, the 2 choices at the "under $200.00 level" are Saitek and CH Products. The Saitek has it hands down in this arena because it not only had a stainless steel, ball bearing shaft, but it also comes with a 3 lever, 12 button throttle quadrant. Both items were easy to setup and I almost forgot to mention the fact that the yoke has 4 additional USB ports located in a very convenient spot for additional items. It has a great feel and the throttle quad is really very nice. That has a nice long set of 3 levers that have a hydraulic oil pressured resistance as you slide them forward and back with a good detent feel when in the zero position. Now don't make the mistake I did in thinking that I needed to by the CH Product's throttle quadrant if I wanted to control multi engine planes. It was only after I purchased the CH throttle quad that I found out that I could have easily bought a second Saitek 3 lever throttle, (for half the money I paid for the CH), and placed it side by side to the other Saitek throttle that came with the yoke! That is exactly what I plan to do in a few days. Even though I bought the CH Products 6 lever Throttle quadrant and presently have that hooked up, I feel that the hydraulic oil filled Saitek control is more like what I want the throttles to feel like as I move the levers. All in all Saitek has a great Yoke/throttle combo and the easiest to configure control manager software called SST of any of the other controller managers out there! But even if you don't want to have to program your Saitek controller before hooking it up, NO PROBLEM. SST is not necessary to use or even download in order to use the Saitek yoke and throttle. You can't go wrong here.

Pros: anyone can use this,, i can.
Cons: apart from one or two controls which won't work properly when programmed, otherwise i'm very pleased.
Review: I love the product, and being a novice myself I found the instructions that came with it made the programming very easy.  With the different modes you can select, it gives you many options to programme.  The only problem I have is when I programme a keyboard command to do, for example one side of an switch to move a view "up" and the other side of the switch to view "down" only one part works. so is it the controller, or the software of the flight sim which is'nt working?  By the way, the flight sim I am using is microsoft gold edition.

Review: The drivers loaded with no problem using Windows7 as an operating system. The yoke is extremely smooth with no tight spots like I've noticed in other manufacturer's. I also like how the throttle quadrant is seperate from the yoke assembly, it gives a little more realism during simulation.

Over Rated
by Steve Steinbrecher from Pollock Pines CA USA 

Cons: Hard to set up, incomplete or ambiguous instructions, lack of product support via the phone and website
Review: I spent a lot of time deciding to purchase this product. I have a DELL server, great graphics card, FS9 with all the updates and a nice flat screen monitor to fly with. When the product arrived, I followed the instructions carefully, and the results have been mixed at best. The "mixture" axis has NEVER worked since installed on the throttle quadrant, and the RPM lever will not allow me to increase to full propeller RPMs, which makes for a less than satisfying experience when flying twins (I fly the B-25 Mitchell, King Air and Baron in the twin class mainly). The software from Saitek is good, but full of conflicts with the FS9 functions to the point of where I finally just removed the SST programming, and it seems to work fine usually. I have fairly common "glitches" in which one of more of the functional buttons will quit working during mid-flight, which makes it really awkward to fly, trying to remember and use keyboard commands and the buttons at the same time. Finally, the control yoke is not real stable in terms of responding to up and down pitch, as one would expect a more "realistic" feel as experienced when flying a real airplane. Keeping the aircraft in trim is a real pain, especially at Vr and on final approach using the ILS. If I could find a buyer to get my original investment back I would sell these items. I have a Saitek Avi8tor One joystick I used before and it is MUCH better than the control yoke set-up.

You get what you pay for
by Conor from Albany NY USA 

Pros: Cheap, reliable, works with X-Plane
Cons: Plastic-feeling, light, springy, no damping on yoke, pedal slant not adjustable
Review: I'm going to continue using this throttle & yoke combo because I don't have money for a better system (i.e. one whose yoke doesn't bind up and whose pedals are adjustable). It's definitely usable, and provides excellent value for the price, but it's definitely not representative of the controls found in certified simulators. I didn't expect the yoke to be so light and springy; I expected something heavier that would provide either more, or adjustable, resistance. The pedals have adjustable resistance, but the angle on them isn't adjustable, which can lead to foot fatigue on long sim sessions. I'm happy to report that the signals generated by these controls are clean. They don't center perfectly (there's about a 2% dead zone in the center, wherein control outputs are ambiguous), but otherwise they report their positions reliably. They work well with X-Plane, and I use them under both Mac OS X and Windows.

Pros: Smooth, realistic feel, great looks, many buttons!
Cons: Throttle quadrant cannot be used separately
Review: I bought this as my first yoke system and am more than pleased with it. The yoke moves very smooth, and the throttle quadrant is absolutely great. I love using the built in timer for legs of IFR flights. The throttles have a zone for reverse thrust and it is extremely helpful when flying larger aircraft. My buddy has the CH Products yoke and after using my Saitek, he is now saving up to buy a Saitek as well. 5 stars!!!!

Pros: If you like realism this product will add immensely to it.

Review: Great product. Much more realism than a joystick controller. The analog clock in the yoke adds a sweet feature, if you use it, i.e. time checkpoints along your flight route, etc. If anything is negative about this product it would be the mounting attachment. This could probably be a little more sturdy.

Less Than 4 Month Mine Is Completely Dead...
by James from USA 

Pros: Nice feel, easy to hook up and set up buttons etc... and good solid feel, overall fit, form and function is really good for what you are paying.
Cons: Died after less than 4 months of light simming...
Review: When it was working it was a great yoke/throttle system, fit, form and function is nice. But at times the yoke display will display funny characters, if you cycle through the modes they go away. But mine just died after less than 4 months of light use, simming. No warnings whatsoever just dead. Display and LED lights will not come on, sim wont recognize inputs or calibration, nothing... Searching the internet forums it appears this is a common problem with the yoke, so I guess I now get to deal with Saitek and exchange it.

Bottons Bottons Everywhere
by NWTech75 from Rosemount, MN 

Pros: Easy to use and set up. Multilple buttons make it easy to program a wide range of functions that you would otherwise need to use the key board for. Enables improved virtual cockpit management. Very smooth on the control inputs.
Cons: Sensativity with flt control defection has been a serioius challenge. The controls always reach full deflection before the yoke. The programing software could be a bit more user friendly, I've had a hard time figuring it out.
Review: The folks at Saitek did an outstanding job with this. The look and feel are close enough to fool the average user, and close enough to fool the mind of the student. The feel of the axis's is not what I expected, although I am not complaining. For all the hype that I had heard about the yoke I was expecting more. Never the less it still has met my expectations. As a student pilot I am constantly practicing. Having a yoke like this really makes a difference. I really enjoy the clock and stopwatch features. They really make a big difference when I am practicing a number of different procedures, like missed approach, holding patterns or calculating enroute fuel consumption. The yoke only has about 3 inches of travel in any direction which gives about a 3:1 ratio against the real thing. Don't let this fool you though, its really worth the money for the serious Sim Pilot or student Pilot. The included throttle quadrant allows for multiple set ups that can be configured in FSX Settings fairly easily in FSX.

This product was worth the short wait it took
by Jeanette from Haltom City TX USA 

Pros: easy to use, Just like inside an airplane
Review: I'm an aviator with 18+ years of experience. While nothing comes close to just 'cockpit' time, this really does. If I can teach myself how to open the file to simulate flying in IMC, I think I would be set. Thanks. R.M.

Fantastic and extra functional.
by Robert Emmer from Gainesville Fla 

Pros: Ease of use
Cons: No paper manual
Review: Out of the box great. I am in a professional pilot course and with the panel added makes my Cessna practice very realistic. I just finished flying several ILS approaches and an ADF approach and all was very smooth. Get the SST programming tool and have fun. We all have preferences and mine tend torwards the realistic. I went in and tweaked a little of the null zones and sensitivety and its like flying a real airplane. Saitek did a great job. I also used to 2 extra screws to mount my panel to the yoke. It doesnt budge. I hope Saitek can keep making cockpit add-ons. I'd buy them all. I bought the panel first but will get rudder pedals next. After that, I will start looking into a radio stack. Ummm Saitek:):)

Review: Its probably operator error but I haven't been able to get the outer two levers to work. Throttle works well and yoke has very realistic action. I have flown small planes and I was impressed.

works pretty good
by Ron from central NY 

Pros: feels more real than joystick
Cons: not much on software instuctions
Review: Flight yoke works very well. Took a little tweaking to get it to where was comfortable with it, all through FS. The only problem I had was the profile software has an issue with windows xp. Tried downloading it from saitek site and wasn't any better. Works ok without it. Have to go back to joystick for helocopters, uncontrollable with yoke. I have had a problem now and then with some controls on yoke. Unhooking the usb and reconnecting seems to fix it. Other than that I like it very much.

My sons biggest christmas surprise
by Pam from Laurys Station PA USA 

Pros: realistic equipment, non cumbersome and sturdy materials
Cons: none
Review: I purchased this for my 11 yr old son. He loves it. When he opened it up-the excitement was overwheming and he played all day on the computer not even wanting to go to his uncles for other presents that were coming his way. He enjoys the challenge of flight with each plane. I definitely recommend this to any one pre-teen thru adult who wants to experience the real art of flying.

LOVE IT!
by Big Lars from Central Florida 

Pros: Built nice, Looks great,peforms flawlessly!
Cons: The clock on the yoke doesn't work with my Mac
Review: I use this along with the rudder pedals with X-Plane. I use an iMac Core 2 Duo 2.5 ghz. This works right out of the box except for the clock on the yoke. I only get one mode and the timer only but I believe there is a fix for this somewhere out there.

by rbob from Hilo HI USA 
Pros: Well built and attractive
Review: See my review of Flight Sim X - I've put the yoke back in the box and am considering whether to buy a joystick instead, or just give it up. It's more the problem of the simulator than the yoke, but even so, I can't seem to set the yoke to give a smooth motion. Too much porpoising. And I'm a retired comm'l pilot and CFII, so it's not that I don't know how to fly.

Bells and whistles
by A Customer from Miami Florida USA 

Review: Very good. sturdy and installed on Vista very easily. The throttle quad is manageable and realistic enough. The flight yoke however, requires some advanced tuning to get that realistic displacement when changing pitch and bank. Once you get through that phase, it's sweet.
