Hi,

For my birthday im getting a Yoke and Throttle Quadrant for my main presents!! I can't wait. These are them :

http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=CHP-615-USB - the throttle

http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=CH-THR-USB - the quadrant

What do you think - will it be able to ship to the UK - and how long do you think it will take until it arrives?

Radarman, I looked at amazon UK and the prices there for the throttle quadrant and the yoke seems to be quite a bit more money 😕 Wre they supposed to be cheaper?

By the way - can the yoke and throttle quadrants on flight1.com be posted to the UK frmo the US?

That's surprising, Amazon is usually cheaper (they are here). Flight1 says US only, google the set in the UK for a better price.
Shipping from here will be very expensive.

Steve, allow for custom and excise if coming from the USA. Sadly, we in the UK are frequently overcharged for items from there. I had a gift from the USA, a few weeks back, and was charged over £60.00p. Which came at a financially difficult time for me, I couldn't refuse it, or send it back, and neither could I tell the sender.

Be warned!

The value of the item, was stated on the outside of package, correctly as $100.00

Congratulations. 👏 I have the CH Yoke, Throttle Quadrant and Pedals. I really like flying with them. I still keep my joy stick for aerobatic flying and Helicopters. You're very lucky because these items are expensive;many want them but can't afford them. You will really enjoy them, they make Flight Simulator much more realistic. Checkout the link below, they ship internationally. 🙂

I would definitely go with Radarman's links. Why have the gear shipped from the U.S. when you can get it from within the U.K.?

Can anyone confirm whether this hardware is compatible with Steve's Laptop?

Sorry for being late, got caught up. As I neither own a laptop nor any of the hardware you like to get, I can't give you first hand advice. I can only tell you what I would do.
I'd send an e-mail to the CH-products outlet nearest to your location, be frank with them, tell them you don't know much about their products but are interested in such and such and most importantly : put the link of your laptop in the e-mail so they can look it up on the net.
Ask them if the hardware can be plugged into your notebook without any problems or whether any other little gadgets are required to make it work.

BTW, I found this site yesterday ➡ http://www.chproducts.com/retail/world.html

Look under United Kingdom.

With a bit of luck someone who uses CH-products with their laptop will come along and give you better advice.
