Hard Pressed to Find Equivalent or Better

  • By Tim from Matthews NC USA on Tuesday, March 28, 2023
  • Pros: Quality and physical robustness
  • Review: Just because a product does what it is supposed to do does not make it a five star. What makes it a five star is that it does just what it is supposed to do AND it has a level of quality unsurpassed from what I could find. This is more than just a Yoke. I can start my sim experience from ground zero - Turn-On Master Switches and Avionics and see the cockpit come to life. Then I can turn on the engine(s). Then I turn on other lights etc. After landing, one can do just the reverse. It feels real and helps me with my checklist steps. Beyond all that is the level of quality of the Flight Yoke. I have it clamped down onto my desk and have to admit, there have been times when it helps. The yoke feels good in the hand, turns 180 degrees and is smoothly responsive very similar to when I "really fly". One can calibrate both axis' (I haven't needed to).

  • Pros:
  • Review: Works perfectly! Use it all the time now whenever I fly on X-Plane 11. I wanted to fly on the VATSIM network but was scared that the mouse yoke would be too hard to control. With this, it makes it easier to maintain control and still be able to use switches while moving. Definitely can't wait for the Bravo Throttle Quadrant to come back in stock.

  • 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.

  • Pros: Quality and physical robustness, Smooth and responsive, calibratable, Additional Control Switches, and feels real.
  • Cons: Pricey - I had to decide whether to pay for quality or not. I'm glad I did. A USB-C hub might be nice. Too many USB wires going back to PC.
