A good value for the money, except...

  • By Tom from Colorado Springs, CO on Thursday, August 18, 2016
  • Pros: Excellent price point considered what's offered on the market
  • Cons: Poor quality pots that need cleaning or replacement after constant use.
  • Review: When first purchased, the throttles performed as expected. However after about a year of use, the throttles tend to spike and jump regardless of setting. Especially irritating if you're cleared for takeoff, add power and hear "reverse thrusters engaged" from FSPax. I guess nothing should be expected to last forever. I have their switch panels, pedals and yoke. They all still work great. But the throttles are my bane!!

  • Review: They work and feel great. I ordered two of these so I could put them together for twin engine training. I wish there had been documentation to explain how to get the computer/flight simulator to recognize both as different controls instead of the same one. So far, I've only been able to get one to work at a time. I'm sure there's a website out there that will show me how to get them both operating with FSX at the same time?

Good, but not GREAT

  • By Dennis from Middleburg FL USA on Wednesday, July 06, 2011
  • Pros: good throttles, smoothe
  • Cons: reversers not as good as expected (calibration?)
  • Review: Overall, it's a decent product. The calibration is non existant and the yoke takes "light" hands to fly with it. This is not only my opinion, but the opinion of others in my VA. One of the pilots went back to his previous yoke. While I have grown accustomed to it's "quirks",I would love to calibrate it like my other controllers. Maybe there is a way, but I can't find it. The instructions are vague at best.
