joystick or yoke

Hello

I am planning on buying a flight yoke and pedals but before I buy them I want to know if I should stay with the joystick or not. ❓

if you can afford them then definately get the yoke and pedals, much more realistic. I presume you mean the CH yoke and pedals as they are the best.

This is what I would do- Buy the yoke and pedals and if your flying a plane with a yoke and rudder pedals then fly with those or if your flying a plane with jostick and pedals use those and so on that i belive is one of the most realistic ways on MFS2004

I'd go with the Yoke and pedals but it's your choice.

I have been flying with my Thrustmaster FSC Mark I since 1990--Yes it OLD, I got it from Thrustmaster when they were working out of the basement in Oregon!!! I also have a Mark I Weapons Control System (WCS) that about as old--basically its a trottle with 8 buttons and a control box to change settings. These have worked well over the years. I bought a very expensive Elete Yoke and found it to be very nice, However the price tag just was too high, and I sold it and got a CH Yoke which worked just as well with far less cost and less space taken up.
I do not have the yoke anylonger, but do plan to get another CH Yoke & pedals.

I agree with another poster, if you plan to fly a aircraft with a stick--then use a stick, if you are going to fly one with a yoke (MOST aircraft are Yokes) the hook up the Yoke--Realism is what you are after.

I agree with TBM2. I use the CH Yoke, Pedals and Throttle Quadrant for most flying but I keep my Logitech 3D Pro for aircraft better suited for a stick(helicopters, aerobatics, combat, Piper Cub). My joy stick is inexpensive and I like having both. 🙂

I would go with the yoke because it is more realistic when using Boeing aircraft but if you fly Airbus aircraft than i would also use the joystick. It is hard to say but I would go with the yoke. 😀
