New Throttle

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I'm looking to replace my Saitek throttle quadrant after getting frustrated about the spikes and the lack of feeling. I'm looking for a good set of throttles that are compatible with PMDG products. I've purchased Elite Throttle Quadrant but it is not compatible with your airplanes, and many other addons on FSX, they only work for default FSX and some payware.... So before making a purchase, on this opportunity I would like to ask you about my options. Which throttle do you have that works with PMDG (No Saitek, No CH and No Goflight)? I was thinking about PFC, do they are compatible? Do they have a true feeling?

he is trying to replace them so I would recommend these another one of saitek's joysticks or something over the Logitech due to price point. But I have a Logitech steering wheel and it is nice as. Grip is nice and force feedback is great so I would thing the G940 would be the same.

I do wish Logitech would do a nice yoke though. I would definitely have one over the stick.

I just spent $1500 on a 767 Throttletek throttles. I have a $800 set from Precision Flight Controls that is really good, but it doesn't look like the real thing. I ditch it on ebay when the new ones arrive.I looked long and hard and solicited much advbice - the throttletek seem to be the best. They have a 737 version for less money.

1. Precision Flight Controls - approx. $700 (Console and choice of quadrant - several to choose from) 2. Throttletek - approx. $650 (737 specific) if you fly other aircraft not much versatility. 3. GoFlight Inc. - approx. $350 (very versatile for various aircraft configurations). 4. CHProducts - approx. $170 (additional programming functionality)

If your not in a big rush to get a TQ. Just wait a month or so. I cant really say much about it at the moment, but for about the price you would pay for the Throttletek you could get somthing much better! Greg Keath
