Whilst I agree with most of what was said in the video, unless the manufacturing/design has changed recently, I don't agree that the cross-interference between pitch and roll has been removed. I bought (and returned) my Cessna ProFlight yoke about a year ago. Control in roll was always smooth. However, because of the design of the shaft, with the roll sensor running in a slot in the side, control in pitch was only smooth without any roll applied - I found it almost impossible to make small, smooth pitch inputs with any amount of roll applied. It may have improved with use but life's too short to have put up with the frustration of waiting for an improvement that might not have come.

It may not be apparent until you click on it, its a video review.

I added a line to make that clear :)

Thanks to the OP for the link to this video - very informative, particularly the suggestions it contains out for setting up the Cessna yoke. I am now reasonably happy with my recent purchase of this yoke, particularly as it came with a throttle quadrant to go with the one I already had - which would otherwise be very difficult and expensive to obtain at the moment.
