Go Flight GF Pro Yoke System

Recommended Posts

Not a good week for me and Flight Sim controllers. My Go Flight GF Pro Yoke system that I bought a couple years ago decided to die on me. It appeared that the USB connector had come loose from the circuit board. Attempted reaching Go Flight and received no response. Called and emailed again today. I ended up ordering a new plug and soldered to the board. Still doesn't work. I went on Go Flights Website and the yoke isn't offered anymore. I now have a $750 paperweight. Does anybody have any ideas how to get e new circuit board or get Go Flight to respond? I honestly feel the company is out of business or going out of business and I'm stuck.

I went on Go Flight's Face Book Page. No activity since last year. I sent a message and received an auto-response. Doesn't look to well for Goflight, I think they are done along with my $750 GF Pro Yoke ...

Best guess would be to buy a Leo Bodnar BU0836X board, cut all the wires and connect the pots to that. Should cost about £50.

Thanks Mark and Rich.

Mark, great idea on the Leo Bodnar Board, I forgot about that

Rich, They are closed but it said they are still taking orders, just not shipping until they are cleared to go.

Great news, GoFlight responded to Facebook messenger. They directed me to email tech and they will get me taken care of. Thankful they are still around and hope they prosper, big fan of their products.
