I am planing to buy yoke-throttle-pedals for my FS9 but I can't decide which one to buy. CH Products or Saitek ? Or if there are any other on the market?
Which one is the best and what are your experiences?
Also I usually fly 737 and 747's. Is it possible for the throttle quadrant(Saitek) to have 4 throttles for the 747 ?

Guys thanks for the replies. I heard that CH feels a bit plastic and cheap however if you guys say its OK than its OK Also can I use the CH throttle with a 747 which has 4 throttle quadrants ? and when you want to switch from 747 to Cessna what do you do with the throttles?

I've had nothing but good luck with my Saitek X45. Its sturdy, easy to set up, and has been going for a LONG time. I've tried the CH Yoke and Pedals a few times, most recently at Airventure 05, and have always been disappointed. So have most pilots I know who have tried them. I don't have any impressive credentials flight-wise, but with about 200 hours in Cessnas and Pipers, I felt the CH products were so poor in terms of construction and design that flying with the X45 actually felt more "real". Its possible these demo units have been beaten terribly over the years, but thats not really a testament to their construction either...
Obviously this is subjective, but I'd say make sure you try out the CH stuff before you buy it... I've read some good things about the new Saitek yoke, but I can only comment on the old X45--not the yoke.
