Fore Feedback Yoke Flight Illusion & P3D 2.5

Recommended Posts

Hello !

I would like to buy this amazing yoke :

 http://www.flightillusion.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=productdetails&virtuemart_product_id=193&virtuemart_category_id=12

 

But before I want to be sure that there is'nt any issue with P3D 2.5...

They writting on their site that it 's ok with P3D but it is'nt wroten wich version (1.4 or 2.x)

 

Is somebody using this yoke with  p3d 2.5 or 2.x ?

 

Thanks for your answer :)

I don't know about the FF-feeling and reaction with the sim, I guess it could be awesome, but look at the yoke itself - compared to some products like PFC, the handle itself looks very cheap, for the price. Full cast yoke, like PFC or Iris Dynamics should be "in". And two buttons? And the fact they only show low-res photos...?

 

Just something to consider...

 

To answer your question: I don't think it matters if 1.4 or 2.0. FF handling didn't change, not since the times of FS9 as far as I know.

I have the MS FFB2 SideWinder being used with P3D v2.5, and enabling the Force Feedback works and one gets the rumble of the nose-gear when its activated, but as it disconnects the AP when in cruise if using the hat-switches to change views, I disabled that feature.

Rick I have the same stick. FS force software is a must http://www.fs-force.com/

Could you share some impressions of your FF experience in P3D using your joystick and that software combo?

 

Worth it?

For a hair over that price, you can get a PFC complete set (yoke, throttle quadrant and rudder pedals) that will last way longer than this and are an absolute joy to fly with.  It improved, by far, my manual flying skills.

Hi, Im FSX-SE but it should be P3D compatible. lets put it this way, I would gladly pay double for this software and its a perfect match with the stick. You can read up on everything does in the link

 

Highly recommended !

I use FS Force with my Iris Dynamics yoke and it really does bring it to life, I consider it a must have to any force feedback controls

Personally I feel that is far too much money for far too little in the way of features.

I'm still using my trust ol' G940 system, and the FF effects still transmit really well...

I'd be careful to buy a kit that expensive when the vendor is only showing a 3D-rendering..., If you're unlucky, that may well be just what you gonna get ;)

Perhaps a vendor will produce a yoke that gives the user a realisitc trim experience, similar to my Sidewinder with FS Force. The rest is icing on the cake IMHO. Perhaps that could be produced at a relatively reasonable price. Just thinking out loud.

I have the Cessna 182 panel from Flight Illusion with dual force-feedback Cessna yokes. It's just great. When taxiing it can be felt in the yoke and rolling down the runway the forces can be felt as speed is gained. In flight turbulance can be felt thru the yoke. Just like the real thing. I fly P3d v2.5 and FSX. I can also fly X-plane 10 with the software from Flight Illusion.

I founded 2 others fabulous yokes ffb : the CLS of Brunner and this of IRIS  http://www.beh.ch/CLS-Economy-Yoke.200.0.html?&L=4 and http://www.irisdynamics.com/force-feedback-yoke/

Iris aren't taking any more orders for their yoke; it will be a limited production run to fill all the kick-starter and pre-orders, after which I believe they will cease in-house production and license out their control loading technology to other yoke manufacturers. 

 

I am lucky to have mine already  :lol:

 

Control loading yokes are awesome, very expensive, but awesome!

Did they abandon the other yoke option?

I was hoping for a more GA style control yoke

The upgraded yoke option was for existing buyers only. Iris were having issues with their in-house resin yoke handle manufacturing so in order to get customers yokes delivered faster they offered optional Precision Flight Control handles, the 737 style handle was an additional $500, not sure what the cost of the other styles of upgraded handles were but i seem to remember another few customers mentioning on the Iris forums that they had order Beechcraft stlye handle upgrades.

It looked like a beautiful yoke.  Thing is, I think they could have made a non-feedback version and made decent money.  Looking at the way they laid out the switches on the yoke, it was a simmer's dream.
