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:

WOW, their 737 throttle looks amazing, just a shame their website has hardly any info or better pictures...

Email or not, I would still want to see better pictures and descriptions, so much more info missing...

I have the 2nd one of these. I will make a video of them in action and post on Youtube. I am on vacation now. So next week expect to see a video of my 767 throttles in action with my LD767 and PDMG737NGX.

Hey Paul, Where in NY are you? I am in NJ and am seriously debating spending the money on one of these. I would "love" to see one in person before spending the $$ and I am SURE you would LOVE to show yours off! I could even bring a camera and film while you used it :)

 

Enjoy your vacation!

I live in Hicksville, Long Island. 40 minutes from the GW Bridge (no traffic). I have no problem showing you these throttles. I think the $12 toll may end up costing you much more once you see them.

 

But these throttles, along with a good yoke and rudder pedals sure make it very realistic.

 

 

No they are not motorized. So, A/T won't move them There are no trim wheels lilke on the 737. But $4,000 for motorized is too steep even nfor me. I have 100% satisified with the Throttletek throttles. It was a leap of faith as I never seen them before the purchase. So anyone who wants to see them who is thinking about buying them, I will accomodate.

Well I am happy to say after going back and forth with Roberto and probably annoying him to death he is doing a custom unit for me...

It is a bit of a compromise as I actually prefer to fly the 777 but if I get the 767 Throttle TQ there are not enough flap detents to fly the 737. I prefer the color and back-lighting of the 767 unit though. On the flip side if you get the 737 TQ there will always be enough flap detents to fly the 74/75/76 and 777...

 

So what we are doing is the 737 V2 TQ with custom backlighting (+$100) painted in the 777 Brown!

It will be like this one with the custom backlighting and parking brake unit like the 2nd pic below... :dance:
