I've had my Saitek Pro Yoke & Throttle quadrants for 8 years and overall they've worked well. But nothing lasts forever and I'm considering what to do should one or more units fail. If the throttle quadrant supplied with the yoke should fail it's not possible to buy another. It's only supplied with the yoke so I'd need to shell out around £140 for a replacement. Given my current PC is more than adequate for P3D v3.4 (and v4 eventually) I don't need to shell out a couple of grand for a new one any time soon. So I'm considering moving to a high-end yoke and throttle. My CH pedals are fine for now. they seem almost indestructible. I've considered and rejected the GoFlight yoke and throttle. Not enough buttons on either and no real rave reviews about either. That leaves PFC. I know their quality as I visit Pete Dowson on a fairly regular basis and his PFC kit is quality. Okay, I'm not considering the same hardware as Pete has but PFC only builds quality kit so I know I can trust them. I'm looking at the PFC Cirrus Saab Yoke (12 buttons); Throttle Quadrant Console with a Four Engine Jet Spoilers/Throttles/Reversers throttle unit. I could buy direct from PFC but there a UK retailer in Norfolk offering all this kit albeit at fairly high prices although they include taxes, VAT etc. Their website is here:- http://flight-simulators.co.uk/acatalog/Cirrus-Saab-Yoke-144.html#SID=51 I haven't heard of them, have any of you? Would appreciate your views on this proposal. I know it's not cheap but it's half the price of a new kitchen and less than a house rewire! But it's definitely more attractive than either. And as I usually say, it will probably see me out!
