Best bargain for the dollar, euro, pound: CH yoke and pedals. They work great, are very realistic, and although expensive, they are way less then many of the custom units I have seen. Some of them are 3x the price, and do little more.

Yep, a good solid set of CH-Yoke/Pedals will cost you a little over 200$, but it's still the cheapest way to sit yourself in a realistic environment. Although I nearly was dissatisfied with them, a little adjustment to the sensitivities and I'm loving flight eaisly 10x more now! I'm fairly certain you won't hear a bad review about them, and can find them for sale at nearly any respectable flight-sim website.

I've got Flight Sim 2004 with the CH-Yoke/Pedals and I cannot get on with the yoke for controlling the elevator. There seems to be a huge dead area in the middle of its range, so it's impossible to set rate of climb/descent with any precision, and it takes me minutes to get it trimmed for straight and level. In the real thing, you know you're in trim when no yoke force is needed.

This is the second CH yoke I've had, as I returned the first one because it had a very sticky action. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I'm sure my computer is up to the job (XP, 3GHz P4, 1MB RAM, GeForce FX5600 with 128MB). Can anyone recommend anything better, preferably with force feedback?

One question about the CH yoke (or indeed any yoke), how does it "attach" to your desk? What I mean is, when you pull it towards you to climb, will the whole thing not slide off your desk? Thanks in advance for any help clearing this up Smile

The CH yoke has thumbscrews to attach it underneath, like a G-clamp.

In response to the deadzone issues, that sounds very similar to my issues when I first bought the yoke. Yes the shaft is too sticky and usually requires you to stick some WD-40 grease on it to get it going. But other than that I think everything else is fixable!

In response to my dissatisfaction over the lack of force feedback and sensitivity, I was given some advice from pro-sim that transformed my experience with it, and now I don't miss the force-feedback at all!

And that advice was ... ?

Sorry for not making that clear! Rather than re-posting it, just read the post I linked in my response, Pro-Sim's words are better than my own!

Never heard of thumbscrews. I assume they just clamp on to the edge of your desk? Sounds good, thanks.
