Honeycomb Yoke and Throttle news

Recommended Posts

I've received news from Honeycomb about their forthcoming Alpha Yoke and Bravo Throttle Quadrant. The yoke will be available to view at the Lelystad Flight Sim show in early November. It won't be connected to a PC but nevertheless should give potential customers a good feel for it.

PFC have been involved in its design and with a five year warranty it looks to be a quality unit. You can see more details of both units here:- http://flyhoneycomb.com/

Hm, nice! I am super curious to read the reports. I am observing this HW since I first heard of it. But, "not connected to a PC" ...? Sounds like still a lot of development would be needed :ohmy:

Cheers

Just the drivers I would imagine.

Only that it won’t be at Lelystad in 3 weeks.

The docs on the yoke state it has 6 inches of travel. I just checked my Saitek and it has around half that. This is very encouraging. :biggrin:

Thanks for that heads-up, Ray as the very first time I ever tried a yoke was at Cosford last w/e, and was angling towards the Saitek models on display there, until I read several posts recommending the CH variants. Then somebody also mentioned this being in the offing.

That all depends on your physical setup.  I mount my yoke on a desktop and the extra three inches of travel in and over the desktop could be an issue.

Surely it depends if the travel is contained within the yoke enclosure?

@vc10man, Rick, I think you’ll find the Honeycomb will be a step up in quality over CH and Saitek.

Understand it is contained.  I place an iPad and other items beyond the end of my Saitek yoke and in front of my monitor. I really like the look of the Honeycomb. It looks very promising. That three inches will likely cause me to reinvent my setup. That's all.  That three inches may not be so great for all...

Each to their own of course. I’ll report back once I’ve seen it at Lelystad.  My own desktop may need tweaking too.
