PFC makes the best there is, end of story. The company's owner, Mike Altman is also a C5-A Galaxy pilot.Mike is a friend of mine, and he has explained at length to me what goes into his products (mind-blowing). I've written a couple reviews on them for FlightSim.com. When you consider the very low production quantities of these products, the price is actually reasonable.Built like tanks; you could probably throw PFC hardware off the roof of your house, and aside from some dents and scratches it will continue to work as when new.PFC hardware is worth every penny you spend on it and, needless to say, I use only PFC hardware, and will use nothing else. :-)A great investment- as close to real as you can get.CH products is nice stuff, but it is "mass parket" merhcandise. PFC is in an elite league all by itself. There is simply no comparison between the two.I mean, some of PFC's hardware is FAA certified. Again, it's a WHOLE different league of product- very high end, very high quality.They are the BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Ferrari of flight controls.Regards,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...RUM_LOUF_A2.jpg

Thank you very much Lou, comming from you is a added plus for sure! I was tempted to go for the CH line becuase you can get the peddles with their yoke at half the price but I do want the best in terms or replication so when I do make the transition to the real bird I don't want to unlearn too much :).Thanks againBest Wishes, Randy J.

Here are a couple of links: http://www.thepilotsnest.com/Merchant2/mer...ct_code=TPN-188 http://www.flyelite.com/yokes.html http://www.mypilotstore.com/MyPilotStore/secp/69 No matter where you look, it will cost you 480-500 US dollars. I for one think it is well woth the price for this type of realism :)Best Wishes, Randy J.

I am very interested in this yoke for my GA flying and want to hear from those of you who have either brought or used this yoke and how it compares to others like CH products etc. And how good of a job it does in replicating the real feel of a cessna yoke/trim/throttle. Thanks!Best Wishes, Randy J.
