Flight Simulator Yokes? Any Suggestions?

Sun Aug 23, 2009 11:50 am

Hey there,
I've really got into FSX recentley and I want to upgrade my hardware. I would like to start off with going from a JoyStick to a Yoke. I have NO idea what-so-ever on what's good or bad?? Anyone have any suggestions?? I don't really want one with all the bells and whistles i just want to fly a plane! I don't really want to spend more than $200/£100 max.
I am also intrested in a package if you could get any thing like that? e.g. a yoke and a rudder pedal's.

Thanks  Smile

PS link's would be nice!!

Go for Saitek PFS. You get a very nice yoke and physically separate thrust quadrant with 3 axes (nice for prop craft / 2jets one axis being Spoilers / trijets) to which you can buy another one. Bout 137 pounds.

Here's the link for the yoke and throttle system.

Also, I thought I'd throw in some other links for you from Saitek.

At the moment, I have a refurbished Saitek X52 that I got direct from Saitek USA and it was $70/€48 before shipping costs. I feel like it's all I need right now, but I've wanted the yoke system for awhile. Big grin

Hope this helped, and have fun flying!

Even I don't own none of them, I've heard from many reviews Saitek it's quite better than CH Products.

I have the Saitek yoke, throttle quadrant, rudder pedals and switch panel. Once you fly with a setup like that, you will never want to go back to a joystick. I got the yoke, throttles and pedals for about $375. The switch panel was another $100 or so. Awesome, I love it.

I have the Saitek yoke also, and have to agree with everything said by Thebatman. I can't wait to add the gauges that Saitek have just launched.
