I like it and I'm in the market for new flight controls... All that's left is "how much"?

   Looks interesting. I am curious about the amount of travel on the axis', as well as the targeted price range. And does it connect to the XBone?

It's certainly priced right, and given the people involved I'm full of optimism for this product!  Sign me the heck up!

It's nice to see someone new entering this field. If the quality proves to be there this will indeed be interesting.  I've always used a stick for simming, but this just might tempt me to try a yoke for a change which will be more aligned with my days of flying in the real world.

   My apologies, I did miss the price listing, as well as the stated 180 degrees rotation. It is a very good looking yoke for an incredible price. If it has sufficient travel on the elevator axis, it will give even yoko, the yoke, not ono, a run for the money.

One thing I'm always curious about - why doesn't someone make an affordable 737-style yoke, maybe in plastic? If someone made a $169 737-style yoke I bet they'll sell like hotcakes.

But you never know, those suckers might be 'aerospace grade'.

Add some force feedback and I'm a buyer.   Until then,  my TM Hotas will have to do.

'aerospace grade'.

 

   What, exactly, does "aerospace grade" mean? Did they use T6 aluminum somewhere in the construction?

Sounds more like sales pitch, mumbo jumbo, to make people go "ooohh, it's gotta be good because it says "aerospace grade". 

We'll find out eventually, cause we will all be buying one to replace the crappy saitek.

I'd have to see one in person and try it first. Lot's of promotional material these days for electronics stuff states that the product is carefully designed by experts. But then the design is shipped off to some factory and the build quality is junk. And then there is the question of the hardware drivers.

1) IT has the full 180° yoke movement is ideal for flight of any craft.

2 ) lots of button and hat switch too

3) $169? good price

 

This is a contenda! ")

 

The Q is, what does this have that the Saitek Cessna Yoke does not have?  My Saitek Cessna yoke is coming in3 weeks.

For starters the Cessna has two usb ports tp plug stuff into which is nce but not a deal breaker as I have a belkin 7 port usb powered hub also I dont think this has buttons in front of each handle still not a deal breaker with all the rocker switches - really looking forward to this - will have a Cessna yoke for sale lol

 

That said will be interested in how easy it is to remove yoke from table with out loosing its holding capability over time - I always remove yoke once a week to get it out of the way to do day job

AVANTIME - the closest thing to it, would be this: at 450 USD and free shipping to North American customers, which has a full interchangable yoke handle, able to switch between 737, 747, 757,767,777 crj emb and erj as of now.  787 will be next out, which is being worked on with Qualitywings builders.

Solid metal cast, will last for years.  An investment to say the least, and allot more affordable, when compared to others in the market at a price point close to 1000$ plus shipping

I did ... I eliminated that with Saitek's free throttle and switches..They even out It;s a wash. So the competition was the Yoke.
