  • Pros:
  • Review: The good: Smooth yoke action. Some electrical system and starter switches.
    The not so good: All the switches on the yoke handles are too large or ill-placed, or both. The Left set of (Trim) switches are so large one can not reach the pov switch with the thumb when left hand is properly placed on the yoke. One has to either use your right hand to reach over to the pov or release the yoke with the left hand and reposition it uncomfortably high on the handle. When doing so one is very likely to accidentally hit the insanely high button on the back of the yoke that is mapped to reset the view by default in msfs 2020. Utterly useless. To get around this I mapped the right lower rocker switch to do the left and right looks and just ignore the pov hat switch. Honestly even when grasping the yoke normally with the left hand the reset view switch is far too easily hit. I'm considering gluing it in place! Really the ONLY good thing about the yoke is it's smooth action in the push/pull axis. Otherwise, the Logitech Yoke has the Alpha beat.

  • Pros:
  • Review: Coming from the Saitek system this is a while other level. The yoke is smooth and feels like a real plan. And the throttles are realistically represented. Highly recommended for hardcore simmers. Not recommend (based on price) for new beginners.

  • Pros:
  • Review: Just an update to my other review. I also wanted to run XPLANE11 on LINUX. You can do that but Honeycomb flight controls are conflicting with my mouse and even after plugging in one item at a time and configuring, was only able to get the Yoke to work. The throttles were not configurable at all. Even my Saitek rudder peddles were conflicting with the mouse (an interrupt conflict of some sort). Until they create a driver for LINUX, I'll have to stay with WINDOWS (I was using WIN7).
    Since I don't have WIN7, now I will have to take computer back to the store and have them re install at a cost of $50 or so. One other thing I should mention is that you cannot run XPLANE11 at all on a Linux system unless you load drivers for your video card. In this case, XPLANE11 would only work with keyboard input.

    XPLANE11 does work with LINUX but make sure you can load linux drivers for your video card AND get use flight controls that have LINUX drivers as well.

  • Review: It’s amazing. Buy one right away, if it’s in stock. Had no problem connecting and downloading the drivers. Very realistic.

The Honeycomb brand is pure quality.

  • By RLEWIS from Milwaukee, WI on Friday, April 30, 2021
  • Pros: Quality/Easy Setup
  • Review: Bought the Honeycomb yoke a month ago. This was part of a migration from ELITE flight simulator, which I had for many years. I'm using X plane 11 now and all I can say is, Wow! For a fraction of the price, the simulation experience is more realistic than with ELITE. X plane recognizes the controls right away, then you have to program some of the switches and that's it. I programmed the toggle switches on the left side of the yoke and started flying right away. I'll program the rest once I figure out what's needed. Thank you to mypilotstore.com for notifying me when the yoke became available. Came to me well packaged and cheaper than the resellers prices on Amazon.

  • Pros: Solid construction. Great value. Lots of customization options.
  • Review: Relatively new to serious flight Sim, actually had the option for either logitech of honeycomb out of the gate and took logitech. The 180 degree inflection over logitech's 90 is worth the upgrade alone but there's so much more. No dead zone at all, completely mappable switches and buttons and a lot of them. Premium feel to the yoke. It's a lot of fun.

Quality is excellent and it changed my sim experience.

  • By Marc from Kernersville NC USA on Friday, February 19, 2021
  • Pros: Easy setup. Great feel.
  • Review: After watching tons of reviews and doing lots of research, I decided to order the Alpha Flight Yoke. It took me a few flights to get used to it, but I will not fly without it anymore. The quality is very good, especially for the price point. The switches are solid feeling and the yoke is super smooth. I have no dead spots whatsoever. I reccomend this yoke to anyone looking to purchase their first yoke.
