Firstly the yoke came in excellent condition, survived shipping, and was packed to prevent damage.
I have been a simmer for 20 years but wasn't as serious as many. I just like to fly around and see the sights, and hopefully land and live. I literally used a keyboard and mouse the ENTIRE TIME, for various (lazy?) reasons. I always intended to put down the money for proper kit but never quite did. This made flying difficult, or I should say flying properly, difficult.
Well, no more. While I waited quite a while to have a sim that would run good old FSX without too much lag, now that I have a system that can easily handle it I no longer had the excuse to not invest in a quality yoke.
I can't say enough how revolutionizing the Honeycomb Alpha Yoke has been for me. I was overjoyed with its build and feel - pleasantly surprised at the push and pull power needed to move it - and it has made my simming experience one of pleasure rather than work. With this in mind, and the throttle quadrant on the horizon, I am ready to take this whole hobby a whole lot more serious.
