Question regarding Honeycomb Yoke & Throttle

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the place to ask this, so forgive me if it isn't.

Am thinking of getting the Honeycomb Yoke & Throttle, but can't find any info on how long the usb cables are.

Also, if they're not long enough for what I need, can they be extended somehow?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanx.

Yes, you can buy a USB extension cable, I bought one and plugged it into my PC then into a 3 port USB hub and then plugged my Alpha and Bravo into that.

I recommend a powered hub. I have rudders, Track IR, headphones, power for portable monitor, etc. in that hub.

Any tips as to which powered hub / size etc. to buy?  I'm out of USB ports and am really considering a separate hub of some sort.

I have an Anker powered hub I got off Amazon and haven’t had any issues

Visualize where you will position the hub in regard to your flying environment and your controls, and look for a hub where the power supply lead and the USB cable from your computer arrive to the hub well, and where the USB leads for your controls lead naturally from the hub to those controls.  Somewhat dark, but mine is there between the left speaker and the base of the monitor.

I don’t recall the lengths of the included usb c cables but they were decently long if I recall. Being that they are standard usb c to regular usb you can always go buy much longer ones if needed.

I bought this after I got the A and B controllers and I have both - plus rudders - 16000 joystick and throttle - x box controller - and note - it has 3 charger ports for your other bits and pieces
