Waiting on the saitek throttle quadrant

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there were many of us flight simmers waiting on the back ordered Saitek USB throttle quadrant. I have gone the next level to install the second throttle quadrant to my existing saitek pro yoke after purchasing the 737 throttle handle set along with the flap detent addon and speed brake handle from cockpitphd. I was informed by Mad Catz on the support side of saitek that it will start shipping on or about Dec 5. PS I would go with flightsim-pm uk 737 v2 throttle after seeing their product online, looks like better quality.

 I have been watching to add another since July and the date keeps moving at all retailers. Something is amiss.

Me too, since September. Tempted to get the soldering iron out to try the fix the old set. I only tried to clean the buggers and pfft.

Trouble is, the circuit board is very small to solder the wires back correctly, very easy to short them :( My eyes aren't what they used to me).

Same here. Bought a GoFlight yoke in August and ordered two new saitek throttle quadrants to put my new cockpitphd levers on (btw, I do not recommend them, too expensive for what you get), but I am still waiting on the quadrants. In the mean time I have had to keep my Saitek yoke plugged in just to be able to use the throttle quadrant that came with it (tried just plugging it in to a PS/2 port, but that didn't work).

 

Really hoping that they get the new stock out in December.
