Great topic. I have owned both the Saitek and CH yokes and didn't like either of them- couldn't hand fly with precision. I actually went back to a joystick because its inputs and handling were more like the real thing than either of those yokes. I am going to buy a high end yoke soon- PFC or GF.
This is a major purchase and a little nerve racking. I don't want to spend all that money and find myself in a constant left bank - Saitek - or have sticky, unresponsive inputs- CH and Saitek. My major concern with the PFC yoke is the mounting; all of the reviews say it flies fantastic. If I just put in on the desk, won't I pull it off with significant back pressure. Everything on the GF looks nice, but I'm with the rest of you; I'd like to get some feedback on how it feels. With it's lower cost, and better mounting options, I think I'd chose the GF over the PFC; I just need to know that for the price, I'll be able to fly with precision.
