PFC Cirrus Saab Yoke & Throttle Quadrant

Recommended Posts

Don't actually have them yet but placed the order and received an email saying they should ship by this Friday. Just so excited that I had to share it (although my wallet was not too happy with me)! Once I get them and get some flight time with them I will share my thoughts on it. So far from what I have heard they are really high quality products.

I have the PFC Cirrus Beech yoke. It is nice but boy do I miss my hat switch.

 

I have read that is one of the biggest complaints with their yokes but I never really used the hat switch so it isn't a big deal to me.

I have the PFC Cirrus Pro yoke, throttle quadrant and pedals, it's the absolute best.

I too have a SAAB yoke, mine is the older style as I have had it for about six years now & I still love it.

 

Looking at ordering some throttle combos in the next couple of months.

It is here! I must say I am so far extremely pleased with the customer service and professionalism of PFC. I had contacted them prior to making the purchase to address some concerns I had about shipping and they responded quickly and got me the answers I needed. Then after it shipped it arrived here very quickly (which isn't necessarily all due to them), I was quite surprised when it arrived today. I am stationed overseas and don't usually get packages that quickly. I must say the packing job is very very nice and I am not usually one for talking about packaging. They use foam pieces that are cut to fit the product exactly so it looked very clean and I had no concerns about any damage.

 

In the middle of a fresh install of my sim so hopefully I will get some flight time with this new setup this weekend. I will do a proper review once I have a good chunk of flight time with the new gear.

I believe that you will continue to be impressed. I own the PFC C2 Professional console, SAAB yoke and several throttle units and am thrilled with them. Enjoy.

Samuel,

 

How is your yoke and throttle quadrant going?  Which throttle quadrant did you get?

 

Which sim are you using?

So far so good. I think I have enough hours with it to write a review which I will try to do after I get back from Thanksgiving vacation. I purchased the Throttle Quadrant Console with the 3 lever TPM option to start with however I do plan on purchasing other throttle quadrants in the future. The sim I am running everything with is the latest version of P3Dv3 and I have all my equipment setup via FSUIPC (of course).

I'm new to this forum.  I couldn't find a better place to post my question so I hope I don't offend anyone.

 

I have a PFC C2 Pro console (Serial Port) with their Instrument console.  Works great with FSX & FAA Registered BATD X-Plane software using FSUIPC v. 4.90 and PFC FSX Driver v. 4.41.

 

I miss using the original MS Combat FS.  I just installed IL-2 Sturmovik by IC Maddox Games.  Is there anyway to get IL-2 to recognize and use the PFC Serial Port controls?  

 

In the good old days, I could call PFC and chat with them about these kinds of things.  Now they seem more interested in charging us for any contact with them.

I would suggest starting your own thread that way more people are able to see your question.

I called them on Saturday and the sales phone rolled to one of their sales folks cell phone.  They are closed on Saturdays, but the guy was very friendly and receptive to my questions.

You'll love your new yoke.  I have the Boeing 737 yoke from PFC and it makes such a wonderful difference.

I also have a Saitek joystick next to me that I use for a steering tiller, and it has a HAT switch, so I don't need one on my yoke.

Interesting thread!

 

I've been playing around with the thought of replacing my current CH and Saitek controllers with more serious stuff like the PFC line of products but...although I think the yoke is the most important one I don't think it would be that funny to only get the yoke and then mix that kind of quality with the plastic CH and Saitek stuff.

 

This means I would have to get both the yoke and the TQ as well as the pedals which would set me back $7500 including shipping to Sweden...now that is a fair amount of money...

I have the PFC yoke and use it with my CH throttle quadrant and pedals. They work fine together.

Thanks Greg for your input!

 

It's not that I'm worried they won't work together from a technical point of view, more that I figured it would feel a bit so-so keeping cheap and plastic controllers to be used in combination with a high quality controller when you only replace one of them. But I guess this is a highly personal opinion.

 

Maybe I end up doing like you only getting the yoke since that does feel like the most important controller to replace and then keep my CH pedals and my Saitek TQ.

 

To me it's a mystery why no company so far has picked up this opportunity to develop flight sim controllers in the middle segment for serious home users where you would still have a much more robust feeling of quality vs the CH and Saitek stuff but without having to pay an insane amount of money as in the case with PFC controllers or some of the other brands with similar price tags.

Hi, what about the VAT when I buy it on the PFC webside?

Is it already included in the Worldwide UPS Express price of $530 for shipping to germany so that I dont have to pay more VAT etc?
