Flight Simulator Hardware Question?

Wed Jan 12, 2005 12:57 am

Hey guys. I have a question about hardware for FS04. It is a throttle from Elite simulation. It is not USB it is USB interface. What does that mean? How do I plug it in to my PC. All my other controls are USB. Anyone know if it is a good product? I want to get this one instead of the cheaper USB quarderant because the USB one does not have reverse and I am tired of pressing F2 all the time. I fly jets and props 50/50 so I think it is a good idea to have something that works for both. There a link about it.

I think it is safe to assume that the seller, by USB interface, just means USB.

As for the product, looks good but I wouldn't know if there is something better/worse in the mkt.

Yeah, it just means USB. 'Interface' is just the head of the USB connector.

Britannia: I will make sure to give a nice report once I get it to work right. I plan on ordering it on Saturday. So I hope to have a review out by next Saturday the 22nd.
