ditto on the CH yoke. Check out ebay - you can sometimes pick up a slightly used on for about half.Vic

Is it better than the Saitek yoke, or is that opening up a can of worms?
I have both and also the AETI AFC II yoke.The Saitek is smoother than the CH yoke but remember this is after a lot of use.On the CH I had to periodically lube the shaft but having done that it was very smooth.On the Saitek I have never really bothered, The metal shaft makes the difference here.The deciding factor for my use is that the Saitek throttle units are many times better than the stand alone CH throttle unit that I had purchased.That one Piece of hardware lost CH a longstanding customer it was so bad.

If you go for the CH Yoke, get the Dupont Silicone/Teflon Lubricant. Have been using the yoke for 5 years now without any problems at all.BTW, although I have the CH Throttle Quaftant, I find the three levers on the CH Yoke invaluable, for example for nose wheel tiller, cowl dlaps and pitch trim (with the Throttle Quadrant for engines 1-4, prop pitch and turbo boost).Cheers,- jahman.
