New 767 / 757 Throttles Review

Recommended Posts

I just installed the new 767 / 757 throttles by Throttletek for FSX. They look and feel great. It really adds to the realism. Set up easy. The reversers and speed brake work great and are such a great addon. The flaps have the gates you need to move through (like in real life). It has engine fuel cuttoff switches and A/T disconnect button as well. All is done through FSUIPC.

 

This is great for the LD767 and the upcoming LD-757. It also works great on the PDMG 737 NGX and I am sure it'll be perfect for the PDMG 777.

 

Finally there is a company that make affordable realistic throttles. See the photo.

Very cool ... and very tempting.

 

I note Throttletek is also selling yokes. Unfortunately, there aren't any pictures of the entire unit. Did you buy one, too?

That is looking so much more detailed than the stuff sold by Goflight! Not more expensive either? Their 737 throttle being $650 this would be similar I guess.

 

I thought they only made 737 throttles, their website http://www.throttletek.com/ only has the one throttle product.

 

Did you have to request it custom made?

The 767 throttles are brand new. I have the 2nd one made so far. I can't speak for plans, $, delivery times . All I know is I have the 767 throttles by Throttletek, and they are a piece of art. I post my opinions here so others can explore a new product that really adds life to the sim experience. I had the PFC throttles that were good. But they no way resemble the real thing. These Throttletek throttles are all lit up. The flaps settings, spoilers, annunciators, fuel switches are areback lit and look amazing.

I can recommend Throttletek Throttles, why? Because I own the G737 Throttle and all I can say is FANTASTIC!!! Roberto is also a good bloke to deal with. If you can afford them, buy them.

The 767 at our present schedule around 3 - 4 months simply cause there is a lot of attention to detail and it is a very complex quad! Also we are very full at our present schedule and basically this is our most complex product to build! After that shipping depends on the service to the U.S. is very fast!

 

By the way our 767 is a limited edition run! 5 sold already the total will be 15!

 

Regards

HI Guys,

 

Here is a video of the First unit that was shipped to Spain! This video was made by Ivan Lewis owner of the quad he adapted a USB cable to the 5V backlighting cable and connected to it's computer for backlighting purposes! Very clever idea!

 

Enjoy:

Looks like a masterpiece.

 

I always admire hardware like this but I've purchased too much at the moment :)
