Well one day I want something like this: http://www.jetmax.ca/

For now I am saving up for this: http://www.goflightinc.com/products/...tq6-adv-advanced-throttle-quadrant

I have a CH products Yoke from 2003 and it has never had a problem. Also I have a Saitek X45 Joy Stick and Throttle I use the throttle always. I have had that since 2002 never had a problem. All the lights even still work.

On the cheaper side, best value for money is the Saitek Yoke + Pedals combo at the moment.

I got that free from a friend. My CH Products Pedals finally gave out after eight years of use and I now use the Saitek pedals which I do enjoy. I want to use the Saitek Yoke but it does not fit on the current desk I have.

I don't like the Saitek yoke it's too unrealistic and jerky. When you let go of the yoke it forcefully springs back to center and when flying trying to make small quick movements is a pain because it takes more than normal pressure to move the yoke out of it's central caged position.
