Ok, I already have the other yoke, had it 8 years, you know the one. I was umming and arring about this Cessna one as my other yoke had loads of dead spots, wouldn't centre properly, wasn't smooth and needed me to open it up and do the old elastic band mod and lube it till I needed shares in ann summers. I ended up buying this anyway, what the hell, had an amazon voucher.

Not even out of the box and I can tell the build difference. It just looks solid. Picking it up confirms this, it's slick and just looks so darn good. Tentatively I try the action out... happily it totally wipes the floor of the other one I had. It centres automatically, and most importantly returning to the same place; action is smooth and actually feels more expensive than its price tag. There are lots of hat switches and enough nobs to shake the now redundant lube at, joy.

The throttle controls are great. Can be mounted on top of or in front of the mounting bracket which is a nice option. Others have commented positively on it so I feel no need.

Is it worth it? Well, if you're wanting a sound yoke and throttle controller, yes. Lets face it, you're probably not bothered about the cost, sure, it'd be better £60 cheaper but you're still going to buy one or the other aren't you. All I'm telling you is that this blasts the other brand of similar price out of the sky. Oh, and the throttle movement is far superior to my other one which had the throttle integrated into the top of the yoke, more movement and more control on this one.

No doubt I'll slag this one off in 10 years when I've saved up for a £700 yoke ripped straight out of a cessna and lovingly modded for a pilot wannabe like myself. Until then however, for sim flight. This is the nuts. Now... I've totally wasted flight time writing this. Bye.

This Saitek Cessna Yoke is a variant of the regular Saitek Pro Flight yoke. The major difference is the absence of a clock/timer on the control wheel. Instead, there is a Cessna logo. The configuration of the programmable buttons on the grips is different, but the functions are the same. The control wheel is sturdy and responsive. There is no issue of dead zones in the ailerons or binding elevator control. The control wheel turns 90 degrees on each side, instead of 45 degrees as the regular Pro Flight yoke does. The larger turn radius resembles that of the real Cessna yoke. Like the regular Pro Flight yoke, a detached quadrant with three control levers and six programmable buttons is included. All the programmable buttons on the grips and on the detached quadrant are easily accessible; so are the control levers on the quadrant. All in all, this Cessna yoke I received is of better quality than the regular Pro Flight yoke I purchased awhile back. It costs more, but it is worth it.

I got this item as a Christmas present. As a recently retired professional pilot and long-time flight sim enthusiast, I was keen to try this yoke and throttle quadrant. The throttle quadrant is well made and is an excellent addition to the flight sim experience. It operates smoothly and has plenty of programmable buttons. The yoke is also well made (better than the standard Saitek Pro Flight Yoke) and again has plenty of programmable buttons. However, it has a fundamental design flaw which stops it from being usable for precision control. The stainless steel shaft has a slot along each side in which runs the roll sensor mechanism. Whilst roll response always feels smooth, pitch response is only smooth with no roll input. With any roll applied, the added friction of the roll sensor mechanism means that fine pitch control is almost impossible and becomes quite notchy, most noticeably near the neutral point of the spring centring where fine control is most needed. Whilst a yoke most closely simulates what you find in many general aviation aircraft, this one simply can't match the accuracy and smoothness of a high-end joystick. 5 stars for the throttle quadrant (which can be bought on its own) but brought down to 2 stars for the yoke. My experience doesn't seem to match the other reviews here but looking around the net I'm not the only person to have this problem. If you want something that looks the part, then buy this yoke. If you want something that allows you to control your flight sim aircraft accurately, buy a really good quality joystick (or a MUCH more expensive professional quality yoke). Tested in Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

I'm using this on a Windows 10 64-bit machine and in FSX:SE and X-Plane 10 v 10.42. I didn't bother with the software discs that came with the product and just downloaded the latest software, drivers and FSX:SE and X-Plane plugins from the Saitek web site (Win 10, 64-bit drivers were available). Calibration and setup within FSX:SE and X-Plane were relatively straightforward although I can't fathom how to get the POV hat on the yoke to act as a POV hat within x-plane (it's automatically recognised as such within FSX). Overall feel of the yoke and throttle quadrant are decent although for the money it would have been nice to have seen more use of aluminium - the prop and mixture controls on the throttle seem a bit flimsy and toy-lie, for example. Still, overall, build is OK - and again, perspective is important - reading the latest issue of PC Pilot magazine there is a review of a 737 throttle quadrant that would cost around £550 to import into the UK - yet the reviewer noted the product is plastic and some of the controls were loose, so even paying a lot more is no guarantee of quality. In use I would say that this setup has transformed my sim experience when flying airliners and light aircraft, in a very positive way. Combined with a set of rudder pedals (I have the matching Cessna pro flight ones but you can choose the Saitek combat ones instead or even go with the cheaper CH rudder pedals) it's a great setup. I do think that some reviewers are overly harsh on products like these, expecting them to feel 'just like the real thing' - can we really expect that for £179? My experience with the yoke is generally good - it allows me to fly more realistically but it takes some getting used to if you used a joystick previously (as I had done).Read more ›
