I like the products
by Albertus Wolfkamp from Lenoir City TN USA 

Pros: The yoke and rudder are functioning
Cons: Do not know the functions of all the switches and buttons on the yoke
Review: The products, the yoke and rudder function.
However I miss instruction sheets. Especially for the Yoke. Would like to have received descriptions for all the functions of the buttons and switches on the yoke.
If available I would like to receive the document mailed to my address. This would make me very happy and satisfied and would raise the rating to 5

New pilot with the flight controls and simulator program.
by Chris Mosconi from Gillett WI USA 

Pros: Comes real close to actual flying.
Cons: Not set-up for the "beginner" pilot.
Review: I would have liked to have seen more concise set-up, and description of the units purchased. More information as to what can be attached to the Yoke Assembly. How to calibrate the Yoke and the Joy Stick to the Simulator program. Once I get the feel of the system I hope to enjoy hours of flight, I wish I had more experience. I know it will take time and paitence.

Great package for prospective pilots !
by TopOfTheBottom from Phoenix AZ USA 

Pros: Good package for the money
Cons: Software wouldn't install without MS .NET Framwork 2.0 first being installed on the computer. (Windows XP)
Review: I'm taking PP ground school at a local community college and wanted to get the "feel" for some of the concepts I am learning before actual flight training.

Everyone says that a simulator is "no substitute" for taking actual flight training and with that, I agree.

That said, once you get some of the concepts of flying an airplane in your head, this simulator package is a good way to visualize and practice some of the concepts you are learning BEFORE you climb into the left seat !

Hey... I understand some "drone" pilots have never been in a real airplane, but yet they are still able to fly an actual aircraft!

The Saitek control yoke, throttle & rudders are a great compliment to the MS Flight Simulator software...adding realism which can't be experienced using a mouse/keyboard.

Excellent Product...Allows me to feel current in fixed wing while flying helos
by Chris from Egg Harbor City NJ USA 

Pros: Hardware is very realistic and the system lets you ingrain positive habit patterns.
Cons: Slight control input lags
Review: Very life like controls allow you to picture yourself in the cockpit of whatever plane you're in. There are some "sim-isms" with slight control input delays, but it isn't bad and it's expected with video game graphics.

I fly helicopters, but this system allows me to keep my comfort level up in a cessna because I can "chair-fly" in a much more realistic fashion making weekend flights in the actual cessna much smoother.

Not what I expected
by A Customer from Gatineau QC Canada 

Pros: Quality material
Cons: Command too stiff, hard to settled, poor manuals
Review: Although the product is well build and function properly it is actually more difficult to fly a plane with this simulator than the real thing. Needed to consult various websites to complete settings and installation as the instructions provided very few information.

Product is quality, but having some lag issues
by Larry from Picayune MS USA 

Pros: Quality hardware and software seems realistic
Cons: lag/latency with controllers.
Review: So far this simulator has been helpful. However, there seems to be some significant lag with the yoke. This does make it difficult to maneuver. I have a brand new computer with windows 8 so it shouldn't be the computer. I'm going to try to increase the memory allocation to the graphics card and see if this helps. Even with the graphics turned to low, the latency is problematic. If I can fix this issue, I will be a very happy camper, or should I say pilot:))
Any advice would be great!!

Instructive and fun product
by A Customer from London ON Canada 

Pros: Very good instructions
Cons: None at this point
Review: I purchased this product as a gift for my 13yr old grandson who has an interest in aviation. I myself am a retired Air Force navigator. He has had hours of fun and has taken advantage of all the instrucuional sections. This is an excellent product and has performed very well. We have a 3 screen setup and an enhanced video card. This makes quite a difference in the realism.

Nice all in one package deal
by Don from Missouri USA 

Pros: Easy setup with computer. USB was recognized without problems.
Cons: Rudder pedals tend to slip on carpet.
Review: Very nice product as I've used it for about 2 months. The setup was very simple. At first I thought something was screwed up with the rudders as they would try and control the ailerons. After checking on line I found with just a little tweaking on the settings in FSX the rudders work great. Controls are smooth and easy to use. Customizing the switches is a snap. I use the setup on a room with carpeting and find I had to find a way to hold the rudder pedals in place. I tried velcro, thinking it would grab the carpet fibers but it didn't work. I ended up securing a small 1X1 board against the desk so now the pedal assembly rests against it and stops sliding.
Overall very happy with the full setup with yoke, rudder pedals and throttle assembly.

one serious quirk
by David from Hamilton IL USA 

Pros: smooth controls
Cons: toe brakes activate elevator
Review: While flying be carteful when using the rudder pedals. You must push with the heels of your feet ONLY. If you happen to use your toes at all the elevator is shot up or down and will cause you to crash. It took awhile for me to figure out what was causing this.

Fun and excellent training aid
by Marc Kenyon from Chattanooga, Tn 

Pros: Realistic aircraft detail, and topography, flys similar to real airplanes, large selection of aircraft and locations, excellent instructional materials, lots of fun to fly and a great learning tool
Cons: visibility needs constant adjustment for VFR flight,, roll sensativity and rudder travel could be improved
Review: I'm a private pilot but not current, so I bought this setup to do some "armchair flying". My first impression was being overwhelmed in the detail, instructional materials, and simplicity of the interface. I am using the system now to fly some planes that I will never have the chance to fly, and places I will never go in real life - and that has been a lot of fun.

I have never flown a glass cockpit before so I'm using the system to develop a scan and utilize the navigation capabilities of the GPS, as well as the other informational displays.

Only a couple of minor complaints. The roll sensitivity is too high IMO even at the lower settings and also the Yoke travel is too short. A longer yoke would do a better job of simulation. The biggest issue is lack of visibility. If you are used to flying real planes you might find the constant adjusting of the screen for VFR flight to be a big nuisance. The good news is the system supports multiple view screens so I plan on adding two addition monitors.

Lastly, my computer meets or exceeds all of the recommended technical specs but it crashed frequently (the computer not the plane). Apparently this in not an uncommon problem. The documentation says to cure this do a "clean reboot" but I found that to be a pain in the rear. However I discovered a .dll file online you can download that is suppose to cure this problem. I tried it and have flown the system 5 times since then including a one hour cross country and have had no further problems.

All things considered I really love this system and the price for everything was less than 3 hours of rental time in a 172. It has encouraged me to bone up on my skills and my knowledge, and maybe get current again.

Worth purchasing
by A Customer from Maine USA 

Pros: Visual concepts of real flying
Cons: descriptions on how to tune the yoke/pedals could be better. response to rudder and ailerons is not as good as i'd like but ok.
Review: Already a private pilot, I bought to help with the "little stuff" that always needed to keep learning. Control of rudder and ailerons slower than i hoped but get used to it. Topo accuracy is pretty good, especially bodies of water. always something new to learn so that's a great positive.

Proficiency vs Currency
by Sage from Idaho 

Pros: Cheaper than 3 hours of avgas and so many scenarios.
Cons: It took some time to get it installed properly.
Review: I got this to increase instrument proficiency when I have time to do it. Thanks for the great price on this package. It is not an FAA approved simulator but I wasn't expecting that, so for logging time and keeping currency it is worthless, but for keeping my head in the clouds and flying approaches it is very effective. Great variety of aircraft and equipment.

I have finally got my new sim going. I have a Dell 690 with 2 invina quadro with 4 monitor with
dual boot Windows XP and Windows 7.  I have been able to program and enjoy the yoke, foot peddles and throttle
and I have discovered that about 5 degrees angle up of the yoke makes it more comfortable.  Altogether
very smooth and accurate.

very fun package
by keith from athens PA USA 

Pros: flight controls
Cons: terrain accuracy
Review: This is a very good beginner setup with pretty good flight feel. However the terrain is not good at all. The mountains are OK but the rest is terrible. On that note it is very good for vor flying witch is all you can do with no reconisable terrain . The airports are not even close to the real thing. But as far as the setup and user friendly controls I think they did good. I must say I do not have a very good graphics card but don't think it would help. Overall a fun package.

Proficiency at it's best
by Jon from Greensboro NC USA 

Pros: Very realistic, especially with the add-on components.
Cons: Seems to be with all simulators, the pitch is always overly sensitive and hard to trim out. Have to engage the autopilot a lot. Not enough control surface feels that keep you from making drastic pitch changes.
Review: I have had this product for the last 3 years, in which I have built the entire stack. I am now recommending it for our Flying Club, and have found it to be such a tremendous tool for flying those tricky approaches. I usually will try the approach on the simulator before I actually have to fly it the next day....allows me to have a great idea of what's going on and what adjustments need to be made before it actually happens.

I would not buy these products again.
by Willard T Carter from Austin TX USA 

Pros: None I can think of.
Cons: This is as concise and informative as I can be: It sucks.
Review: I'm a pilot with many years of experience and a couple of thousand hours of flight time. I know how airplanes work, and I'm not technically stupid. I still can't manage to make even the most basic funtions work right. Perhaps after a huge number of hours of work I might be able to get it done, but I don't have the time for that. If I hadn't passed the time limit for returns, I would have returned it. I'll never buy another Saitek product after my experience with this clunky junk.

FSX is NOT for small engine aircraft
by Trevor from Fitchburg WI USA 

Pros: Saitek product is solid
Cons: FSX
Review: The Saitek products work great! The problem is that I need to use them with FSX that came with them... I wanted to use FSX to practice landings in a C152 as I go through my Private Pilot lessons. The 152 that came with it is not good at all, so I had a friend who is an FSX enthusiast direct me to the best ones on the market. I spent an additional $60 modifying FSX to work correctly... even that 152 doesn't behave right. Example: reduce power to 19,000 RPMs, carb on, first flaps extend and I drop at a rate of 2,500fpm. That's not a little off, that's like flying a rock. Flying the F-18 is fun, but the software isn't meeting my needs.

No power supply included
by A Customer from Statesboro, GA. 

Review: The bundle doesn't include a power supply. I didn't want to rate the product bad as this omission was by mypilotstore.com. Kind of stupid to sell a $300 bundle without the $14 power supply needed to make it all work.
[Reply from MyPilotStore:  Thank you for your feedback!  Most people find that they do not need or want the optional power supply.  Most people simply get the power for the hardware via the USB connection to your computer.  Because most people don't want the power supply, we did not want to include it in the bundle and increase the price for everyone.]

Very Good Product !
by Nishan from Battaramulla Colombo Sri Lanka 

Review: The yoke, rudders and throttle together with MS-FSX worked fantastically "out of the box". The adjustments to tension on rudder pedals is good and gives a realistic feeling when being used.

I am in Sri Lanka (the "tear drop" shaped island located at the southern tip of India) and MS-FSX has all 13 airports in Sri Lanka as well. I was able to fly out of my own airport in Ratmalana (VCCC). Although details of ground layouts can be much better, broad geographical features are well presented in the software.

by Donnie from Nashville TN USA 

Pros: I am very happy that I have controls that makes me feel like the good old days.
Cons: I really would like to see an updated software.
Review: As a Private Pilot who is no longer able to fly a real Aircraft. The Yoke,Throttle and Rudder contol(and the other additions panels ) gives me the felling that I am in control of many types of Aircraft Flying all over the World. It's a great Feeling and I would buy the Bundle again.

The hardware is great
by Philip from Franklin TN USA 

Pros: The controls are worth the money

I'm loving it
by Travis from Redmond WA USA 

Pros: Clock/stopwatch. Good button selection. Good feel and response.
Cons: PS2 connection, not USB, for throttle quadrant. Can't see how to gang them. Fear for durability of plastic pedals.
Review: I picked just the right bundle for me. I wanted to try flying a simulator using something better than the mouse and keyboard. I spent a couple hundred hours in Cessnas 30 years ago, and flying the 172 with this setup feels plenty realistic to me. I would have gone for Saitek's Cessna gear, but was hooked by the clock/stopwatch in the ProFlight yoke. Couldn't be happier with it. The one thing I really want is a trim wheel, which I plan to add and should be able to mount on the same base, below the throttle quadrant. I love the versatile mounting system for the throttles, to be on or in front of my desk. In the meantime, though, I use the prop speed lever to control elevator trim, which really helps me fly the higher performance planes.

Works OK
by Raymond from Alameda CA USA 

Pros: Seems like the basic controls reflect the reality of flying
Cons: It isn't flying. Adjustments to the controls to make the experience real are somewhat crude.
Review: I really have no other simulator to compare it to, but it does have the basic functions of an airplane. I am an old pilot getting back into flying and the controls are more or less realistic in the sense that it does what a real plane does--not necessarily in the same pace or extent. I think the whole process has limitations---the tweaking of the program to make the controls have real reactions is not necessarily intuitive and there is really no helpful booklet. But it does give you the general idea of flying and it is helpful. The instruction and lessons are very rudimentary. I am not sure how you could improve the experience--but the "hat" switch process of looking sideways and back (in vfr flight) is a pain in the butt.

I would by this again
by A Customer from Lincoln NE USA 

Pros: yoke and throttle work wonderful
Cons: rudder pedals need better traction on carpet to keep from sliding
Review: I have seen a lot of reviews about random button presses but i have had no such trouble. The yoke is very smooth and reacts better than i imagined it would. The throttle quad is very nice. The only issue I have is that the pedals slide on the floor very easily, there needs to be a spike strip on the bottom to keep it from sliding on carpet. with a strip of velcro on the bottom, it stays in place as long as you aren't rough with it and i don't think this is enough of a problem to warrant deducting points. overall I think this is a great product and i would buy it again in a second if i didn't already have it

Better Than a Joystick
by Joseph from Little Elm TX USA 

Pros: Realistic
Cons: Came with two pieces without instructions as to how to used them.
Review: I appreciate it handling like the simulator at the airport. I received this yoke and rudder as a graduation gift to replace the joystick I had been using for years. It took some use to get the feel of it, but after I buttoned the thrusters I felt good about the lessons I was taking all over again to get the feel of realism.
I also was given an initial Cessna training flight as a gift that week at the local airport. They had a simulator I had to use before going up that had a yoke and rudder. This made me feel good about mine as it was the same and also easy to use.

Excellent Training Aid
by John from Freeport FL USA 

Pros: Excellent value, much more than a game
Cons: Need smoother operation with yoke when leaving center position
Review: Great for learning the basics plus saves a load of money with refresher training. I was most impressed with just how close it was to real flight training. The only thing I would like to see improved is smoother operation on the yoke from center. It has just enough resistance to cause some over control when first moved forward or back.

by barnabas from amarillo TX USA 
Pros: I very much alike the layout of the buttons and controls on the yoke
Cons: I don't like the fact that it quits functioning for no apparent reason
Review: I was very pleased with the setup. I very much liked the yoke and where you placed the various a button controls. In what I did not like, is I could not get to function all the time. It would shut down in the middle of flight or as on one occasion and just as I was about to hit the runway it stopped working. I tried configuring it several times, and twice as I was trying to configure it, it stopped working. I have been using a saitek flight control system for some time and have had absolutely no trouble with it. I wanted to try the yoke and petals as some flight simulators recommend.

I like it, some feedback
by Patrick from Henderson NV USA 

Pros: work well, make FSX very realistic
Cons: Rudder pedals could be improved
Review: I like the controls. They actually make FSX quite realistic. Only comment is that the rudder pedals are slightly unrealistic in that it doesnt allow you to put your heels on the ground. Aside from that though, very simple to set up, easy to install the software, and I feel that it has added a ton to the simulation experience. Great buy for the price.

Review: Before I bought this product, I researched online for weeks. I did not have much extra money and I needed something dependable, from a reliable retailer. I read several reviews about how hard it was to set up and program etc.etc.etc. I deceided to go with mypilotsstore.com because they had several bundle deals and I had ordered several items from them in the past. My saitek bundle arrived on my porch in three days.

I had it out of the box and hooked up in about 15 minutes. Getting the proper control assignments and feels were hit and miss but I eventually figured things out. I did not have much time until the weekend to work on it and set it up. The first "flight" was really odd. Turned out the toe brakes somehow were programmed for roll and the rudders were set for pitch, of course opposite rudder to each motion. Left rudder (pitch down) right tow break (roll left but once I figured out what was going on the controls are fairly precise.

I am very happy with the product. It was a fair deal and the customer service is great. Also velcro works very well if you don't want to drill holes or put a clamp on your furniture or floor.

Well constructed and sturdy
by Will from New Bern NC USA 

Pros: Construction
Cons: Documentation
Review: The products definitely met my expectations. Where they lacked, however, was in the documentation as regards the set-up of the equipment. I looked on the boxes and through trial and error was able to figure it all out. It would've been nice, though, to have a detailed diagram of how best to set up the yoke in particular.

Having said this, I have been very pleased in general with the performance of the Saitek flight simulator bundle. I plan to add on a HOTS combo in the not to distant future.

Pretty good, but had to do some work to get it right.
by Timbo from Lewisville TX USA 

Pros: Reasonably accurate flying experience
Cons: Quality control needs to be improved.
Review: The yoke gave me a lot of trouble at first as it kept pulling to the right. The windows configuration interface didn't show any problem and I couldn't figure out if it was something I didn't set up right or mis-set aileron trim (on a 172?) or what? Finally, I installed the configuration software that came with the yoke ( I had avoided this due to warnings about a phanton key issue ) and found that the yoke was, indeed, off-centered to the right. It was also quivering slightly on this axis. Not wanting to have to ship the whole mess back and wait for a return, I decided to check it out myself. Upon internal review, I found that the horizontal axis servo had a loose locking nut. Tighting this nut corrected the issue and it now works perfectly (at least as perfectly as a non-feedback game controller can work) but the quality control is obviously not what it should be. As to the final functionality; I am a pilot and I purchased this to practice instrument approaches as I work towards getting my instrument rating (much cheaper to fly this than an airplane and I can do it anytime). The system, as a whole, is very valuable for this purpose but the yoke does not feel like a real airplane. Springs just don't provide realistic feedback, especially in the yoke. Not a real big deal since I already know how to fly and just want to practice instruments. It's close enough that it would still be of value to the student pilot as well.

Real World 172 Pilot
by Michael from Taylorsville UT USA 

Pros: Good way to experience flight stress safely.
Cons: A few minor bugs between controls and software. Can work around though.
Review: There is a bug between the throttle quad and software with the Cessna 172 at take off. The first 400 ft climb is good then the rate of climb goes to 2000 ft per minute (or more) and you have to throttle back to idle before even turning crosswind in order to avoid climbing into (simulated) restricted class C airspace. This is irritating and not realistic if you fly out of a tightly controled urban airport. The yoke and pedal control sensitivity levels need to be set to about 3/8 to come close to real world feel and function. If you are not aware of real world control feel, it would be difficult to transfer experience from the sim to the airplane. MyPilotStore gets cudos on service and delivery. Everything got here on time and in good shape. A fun package that allows good practice, especially with nav skills using VOR and the Garmin 500 GPS. I found it to be a very realistic training experience, especially setting way points into the nav radios and getting the vor and gps going in flight. This is the "sensory overload" that most new pilots find most difficult to master, so it is good to able to practice driving the airplane with your feet while fighting charts and facility directories. I setup the Z axis of the throttle quad to trim the plane and the y axis as the flaps. This is nice.

very habit forming....lot of use out of it
by Dave from Wellsville NY USA 

Pros: very realistic if its set up properly..
Cons: not an x box type toy..u need to take time to set it up realistically and tweak the controls .expensive but worth every penny
Review: I live up north & because of the weather, flying is sporadic during these months.  It's great to keep pilot skills sharpened.  Best if you use a T-square and ruler and build a realistic cockpit panel.  I anchored and measured everything out.  If its all centered and anchored it is almost as good as being up for real..added gauges and control panels too. Don't get discouraged tweaking the system it takes many minor adjustments to optimize performance..a lot of fun..as a pilot.  I am well pleased with it..  I fly out of KELZ (Wellsville NY) the simulator matches the true terrain features and landmarks.. it's very realistic including towers etc...panels also add a lot (don't need the mouse).. gauges cost & are not necessary but if money is there, they are worth it.  I got 4 right now.

Perfect for practice
by Peter from Sydney, Australia 

Pros: Good quality and feel, very close to real thing
Cons: Tricky to set up, sensitive.
Review: Excellent training aid, I use this every day. It will and has saved me money on my actual pilot training as it gives you realsitic practice of scenarios. I will be looking to upgrade my flight sim cockpit in the near future with extra guages and switches.

Yoke, Quadrant and rudder
by David from New Milford NJ USA

Just like flying just a lot cheaper !! A student must ! You can even fly actual instrument approaches,has working VORS' and GPS. Incredible, got me how all that works but it does!!
by PETER from MURPHY NC USA 

Pros: Works great!!!
Cons: Takes a lot of computer to run it all and a little more power to run all the accessories.
Review: In 1978 I got my private pilot's license and flew 100 hours and quit.  I decided this year to come current and get back into it.  I purchased this product and added the radio panel and switch panel and auto pilot along with 6 instrument panels.  At first I thought the game had issues until I realized it was just a real rusty pilot at the controls.  I did everything I learned as a student probably for about 80 hours and brushed up on all the new rules on the FAA website.  I got a new plastic license, new medical, did 2 hours ground with a CFI for a review and 1 hour in the air in a cessna 172 which by the way I never flew before,  I trained in the 70's in piper low wing. MyPilotStore is great too!  Fast shipping and great prices.Your instructor will think you are taking lessons elsewhere.

Too sensitive for my liking
by Dennis from Maywood NJ USA 

Pros: Great deal for the money.
Cons: too sensitive for the beginner
Review: The producer seems to be well made and everything was as advertised. The sensitivity of the yoke and pedals is way over the top for a novice. I found the 800 number help to be very informative and stayed on the line with me until I was completely satisfied.

by John from Providence RI USA 
Pros: It looks good
Cons: controls are uncontrollable
Review: It is quickly becoming a paperweight. Control sensitivity is a huge issue. It is so slow and unpredictable that you are constantly over-controlling. Worst yet, there is no quick and easy way to make appropriate adjustments because instructions are either vague or non-existent. And online blogs are little help. So far I've had the unit over a month and have not yet had a satisfactory flight. I hold C-ASMEL-I certificates but have not flown in 35 years. I thought this might be a way to get a feeling for flying again. Wrong! It has been pretty much total frustration.

All the whiz, and all the bang!
by Shaun from Morton WA USA 

Pros: All the buttons most aircraft need, smooth control input while flying two-hands-on, and the throttle quad is as close to realistic as I think I will ever get.
Cons: Yoke is awesome for General aviation aircraft, but a bit harder to use smoothly for "stick-and-throttle" types. Throttle quad is not a USB input, so it cannot be used seperate from the yoke. This means if you are using a flight stick, you don't have access to all the extra buttons and controls of the quad.
Review: All in all, this is a remarkable setup, and the rudder pedals are an absolute neccessity while flying helicopters. It is a little challenging to get smooth control input while flying one-handed, as in a Mustang or fighter jet, but over-all I think I got my money's worth with this package. I would like to see a flight stick that will take the throttle quad plug and pedals as this yoke system does though. It would make terrain-masking and low level flight much easier and more realistic while flying the "stick and throttle" type aircraft and choppers. Also, I think it would be the cats' meow if Saitek came up with a cyclic and collective system for helos.

It's a superb practice and training system. I already had two copies of FSX, and plan to give this one to my son (who is also a pilot).
by James from Yucaipa CA USA 

Pros: Range of control capability is almost endless, and the system is very realistic.
Cons: Proper (location) mounting was extremely difficult for me. You should try to get this system (with rudder pedals) approved (by the FAA) for use in recording some training time in one's log-book.
Review: The most difficult thing for me was finding a way to mount the yoke (box) in the correct location and height. Being a "Private Pilot", I am very sensitive to achieving a proper mounting location. My computer desk has a "lip" in front, so I found it necessary to shape a "board" to lower the yoke assembly so the yoke tube did not touch the "lip". I also found the mounting "clip" to be useless for this set-up. I fashioned some "clips" by modifying some small carpenter's clamps that would fit into the mounting holes. The problem with them is they restrict the yoke motion in the "pitch down" direction (i.e. the yoke will hit the clamps when pushed forward more than about a half inch). At one point I did try to mount the yoke on top of the table/cabinet with the display on-top of that, but that made the center of the yoke much too high, and the display even higher. The yoke should always be mounted so the center of rotation is approximately in line with at one's navel. That is the most "realistic" position.

Good setup for someone learning to fly
by Garrison from Lexington SC USA 

Pros: quality construction, works right out of the box w/ no configuration, feels like the real thing
Cons: confusing programming software for customization, one weird bug
Review:

I've been flying in a Cessna 182 with a pilot friend a few times, and I have to say this setup does a great job of immersing me. I don't play the missions in the game, just do takeoff, flight, and landing practices at local airports (from the interface, it looks like every US airport and some intl ones are represented, even private subdivision airstrips). I've found myself looking left and right instead of using the POV hat to turn my head in the virtual plane. Like anything, it takes some getting used to, but like the real thing, it's not easy (which I take as a great sign that it's actually helping me learn). The game is really pretty, and the controls can be tuned to the sensitivity level you choose.

Two negatives (keep in mind, these don't keep me from using the simulator): - The provided control-programming software is confusing for me, and I've played video games for over a decade and program for a living - When I press the brakes after touching down, the rudder pedals send a buggy signal as if the yoke is doing a full right turn. This makes perfect landings hard, because I have to use the keyboard to apply brakes.

CONTROL VERY MUCH LIKE REAL WORLD
by JOE C from POLK CITY FL USA 

Pros: BUTTONS GALORE!! CENTERS ON RELEASE
Review: I AM A REAL WORLD PILOT, COMERCIAL,INST, SEL, MEL, WITH MORE THAN 5000 HOURS. THE SAITEK IS FAR SUPERIOR TO THE CH PRODUCT. I HAD MY OWN AEROSTAR 601, AND 601P FOR MORE THAN 15 YEARS SO FLYING IS NOT NEW TO ME. I DID NOT LIKE THE FSX AT ALL. AS A MATTER OF FACK, I DELETED IT AND RETURNED TO FS2004. MUCH FASTER !! I FIND THAT THE FLIGHT SIMULATER IS A REAL TOOL IN KEEPING UP FLYING SKILLS, AND SAVES A LOT OF AVGAS AND ROUTENE MAINTENANCE. MANY THANKS!!

Easy to use but need some improvement
by Byeong from Los Angeles CA USA 

Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Choppy control input
Review: It was easy to install and use it. A nice simulator and control for private pilot or student pilot, especially for IFR. But Microsoft Flight Simulator X did not support dual NAVAID in G-1000 mode. Also the control input was choppy, not so smooth as in real airplane.

Good Package Overall
by James from Fayetteville AR USA 

Pros: The yoke feels good in the hands and is quite responsive as is the throttle.
Cons: The pedals are awkward to use. It is difficult to get into a position where my feet rest comfortably on the pedals without placing tension on the pedals when I don't want to do so. Maybe it will just take some experimenting and getting used to them. I can control the aircraft though; it just seems that I have to hold my feet in the air as if I were doing some sort of stomach-tightening exercise. The passengers don't have to worry about the pilot falling asleep.
Review: I really enjoy the package overall, especially the yoke and throttle. I'm still learning to get comfortable with the pedals, and that's exactly what I mean. I'm using a straight-backed chair (kitchen chair), and the positioning seems somewhat awkward; however, it functions well with regard to controlling the simulator. The yoke and throttle are completely intuitive and make flying lots of fun.

Sim Bundle
by Joe from Henderson NV USA 

Pros: Has the feel of the real thing and the price is great
Cons: Erratic operation occasionally, but the best that I have seen for the price.
Review: I purchased controls to work with my Mac. After partitioning the drive, they work great. The rudder pedals are very touchy and the yoke can be "squirrly" at times. But everything works pretty good and I was happy to configure it so I could use it with my Mac.

On Monday, October 01, 2012 a customer asked:
Q:
Does your flight yoke and throttle quadrant system inlude any trim controls, elevator trim, rudder trim or aileron trim?
A:

The rocker switches located on the handles of the yoke can be set to operate your trim. In fact, most of the controls can be programmed to the function you prefer. If you are looking for a more realistic experience, you can add the Saitek Pro Flight Multi Panel which will feel more like the real thing.

On Wednesday, March 14, 2012 a customer asked:
Q:
I have a laptop with ZERO ps2 (serial) ports ... just USB ports. Will this bundle work on it? If so, does the bundle include all the necessary cables? Thanks
A: Yes, all of the connections for the Saitek hardware is via USB.  The Yoke even has a built in USB hub to connect with other USB devices.  There are no serial or PS2 interfaces used at all.

On Friday, January 27, 2012 a customer asked:
Q:
Theres a lot of reviews that says its sensitive is there a way to adjust sensitvity ?
A: Yes, the hardware sensitivity can (and should) be adjusted and calibrated in the MS Flight Sim X software.

On Sunday, June 26, 2011 a customer asked:
Q:
Will this work on Mac?
A:

While not officially support, the Saitek hardware will work fine on a Mac (the programming software will not work on the Mac).  However, if you are using it on a Mac I would suggest you save some money and get the individual components instead of the bundle since you will not be able to use Microsoft Flight Simulator that is part of this bundle.  You can instead just get the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle Quadrant System and Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals

On Tuesday, May 31, 2011 a customer asked:
Q:
Will this work with x plane on mac?
A:

While not officially support, the Saitek hardware will work fine on a Mac.  However, if you are using it on a Mac I would suggest you save some money and get the individual components instead of the bundle since you will not be able to use Microsoft Flight Simulator that is part of this bundle.  You can instead just get the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle Quadrant System and Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals

On Saturday, November 06, 2010 a customer asked:
Q:
What aircraft types are included in these simulator packages?

On Wednesday, October 20, 2010 a customer asked:
Q:
Will these controls work in x Plane? thanks
A:

Yes they will.

On Tuesday, February 16, 2010 a customer asked:
Q:
what is the most economical and best ifr sim. that the f.a.a. approves?
A: If you have to have an FAA approved system to log time in, you would need an PCATD system such as these.  However, they are much more expensive than the Saitek or CH Products hardware.  Both of those systems use the OnTop IFR Software found here which can also be used with the less expensive flight simulator hardware but it would not be an FAA approved system.

On Friday, December 18, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
does each component require it's own USB port
A: The yoke and rudder pedals will each require a USB port. The throttle quadrant will connect to the yoke by a serial port.

On Saturday, December 05, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
Is this set up FAA approved for counting as simulator time towards Instrument Rating?
A: No, this is not approved by the FAA for logging actual time.  For that, you would need one of the (much more expensive) PCATD systems found here.

On Tuesday, December 01, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
I have already FSX. what is price for hardware only? thanks
A: You can find all of the flight simulator hardware here.

On Monday, November 30, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
Will this work with MS Vista and Windows 7 operating systems?
A: Yes it will. If you are running Windows 7 64-bit you may need to install additional drivers for the Saitek controllers.

On Saturday, October 31, 2009 a customer asked:
Q:
Will this work with the windows xp home version?
A: Yes, absolutely.
