Virtual Fly TQ6 - 2018 Model

Recommended Posts

I am trying to sell my Virtual Fly TQ6 but there is an issue with one of the Ptentiometers on the inside (second blue) throttle lever.  It's bit erratic and needs to be replaced.  All the other handles work great, I just don't have the skill or know anyone close by that can replace it for me.  Instead of taking it apart and messing with it I have moved on to a different throttle.  Virtual Fly was very supportive and offered me a guide on how to change it, but since it was outside of warranty the cost of mail in repair was absurd.  My loss is your gain.  It's a wonderful throttle and I did use it in my simpit for a little while.  There are no scratches or dents, it's been well cared for over the past 2 years.  Only issue is the Ptentiometer in the lever described.  Original cost with shipping was $698, a new one today is north of $800.  I willing to part with it for significantly less than that and it won't cost you much if you have any know how for replacing the Ptentiometer.
