Hopefully Throttle Quadrants go back into production and they improve on quality as well as new products.

Just read about this purchase. I think it will be a good move for the Saitek brand. I never had any problems with their hardware, but their software was another story. As a result, I left Saitek long ago and use CH products.

 

I did try the Saitek Cessna yoke and pedals a couple of years ago at SunNFun and it seemed to work fairly well.

 

Only time will tell and it will be interesting to see what Logitech has in store.

Still waiting for the throttle quadrants to come back online in Canada. This sounds like a really positive move.

It's more of a sidegrade. Logitech has terrible support and drivers,  so I guess nothing will change.

  Logitech has a higher standard of quality compared to madcatz where QC was non-existent. It remains to be seen if they will tweak the designs of the old Saitek gear. My experience with Logitech has been a positive one. I'm still using my M510 mouse and Extreme 3D joystick, both purchased 12 years ago. I can not say that about anything with a madcatz label on it.
