Hello and welcome to this website about flight simulator yokes and joysticks. When you are also interested in flying, the following products will be the right ones to bring a realistic flight feeling to your home. It does not matter if you are a hobby pilot, a professional pilot or a computer simulator pilot in your free time. With a flight simulator yoke or a flight simulator joystick, the flights on your home computer will be more realistic and they will be more fun.

Let’s start with the “Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with Three-Lever Throttle“. I picked this one for the beginning, because I think it is a very good choice and for me the best one. The system is full of buttons, so you really will find the right one for your needs. If it is a button for the gear, the flaps, the trims, the communication or the different views and so on. On the front of the yoke there is also a stop watch integrated, which works pretty good. So you have everything you need for navigation purposes or for  flying exact holding patterns. The saitek pro flight yoke system makes definitely fun and it is worth the price. The price is also not to high and it has a very very attractive price/performance ratio. With the flight simulator yoke system it comes also a three lever throttle. So you easily can change thrust, prop and mixture settings in flight and you get a more realistic flight feeling. Also you can set reverse thrust with the levers. The throttle and yoke are two different pieces, which is the only negative thing if you have not too much space on your table. But with this feature you can set the system up more individually for you. All in all, this flight simulator yoke system is excellent and the flight feeling is really great, it was and is the right choice for me and I would buy it again. If you want to get more information about this or one of the other flight simulator controls, just click on one of the pictures or links and you will be directed to the product page and can read more details and reviews about them.

If you love Cessna aircraft, maybe this flight simulator yoke is the right for you. That’s because it is a 1:1 scale replica of one of Cessna’s light aircraft yokes. Like the Saitek pro flight yoke system the saitek cessna yoke comes with a really good throttle quadrant, so you can handle your power, prop and mixture settings quite well. But you also can use or lets say, set reverse thrust with this system. This is a big step to a realistic flight experience at home. The product includes the Cessna yoke system, the throttle quadrant and a smart programming software, so you can program the system easily like you want. You can get the flight simulator Cessna yoke for under 200$, that is not too much but also not very cheap. If you would like to buy a product which is a bit cheaper but has the same quality, you may have a look at the pro flight yoke above this post. But it is definitely worth looking at it a bit closer, especially when you like Cessna planes very much. Read more…

This review is about the ch eclipse yoke, which has over 144 programmable functions. If you want a high end yoke, then you should have a look at this one. It comes with a programmable trim wheel with a center push function and the flight sim yoke is also Mac compatible. With all the functions and buttons you get, this sounds like a difficult setup but thats not the case. You can easily set it up and in really no time at all. There is also a Control Manager software included, which makes it easy to setup. As you can see on the picture, there is also a throttle quadrant included on the system. So you have the ability to control thrust, prop pitch and mixture very easily. The flight simulator yoke enables a smooth flight with a great experience, but the system is not very cheap. Also if you prefer a throttle quadrant which you can move and position like you want, this is maybe not the best choice for you, because the thrust, prop and mixture lever are included in the yoke system. But on the other side the flight simulator controls don’t need much place and so you can have a very good flight experience also on small tables. Over all I would say, it is definitely a plus that the yoke comes with the levers for the engine and this product is of course a good one. Have a closer look at it – click here.

So the logitech extreme 3d pro is not a flight simulator yoke, it is a flight simulator joystick and a really good one, too. This joystick is not for nothing  a bestseller product. The design is not too much futuristic and it has a really stable stand, also when you have to make faster control inputs. I never had problems with this joystick and I always have fun with it to fly. Besides the fun the logitech extreme 3d is  precise and you have really enough buttons for the different views, for flaps, for your up and down trim, the landing gear, the brake and so on, so you don’t have to touch the keyboard very often. It also has a small thrust lever, which is really really nice. Of course it is not as precise as the more expensive and bigger throttle quadrants, but its really enough for flying on your computer. I have to say, when you are thinking of buying a joystick or a flight sim yoke, there should be a throttle on it or with it, because you can control your thrust a lot better and faster than with a keyboard and it’s a lot more fun. So when you are really sure you want to buy a flight sim joystick and not a flight simulator yoke, you have to look at this product and it’s reviews, especially when you don’t want to spend much money on it. If you want a joystick also with rudder controls, this is also the right one for you. Yes, you can control the rudder with this stick too, by twisting the joystick. So over all, the price/performance ratio of this product is really good and it is recommended to buy this joystick. If you want a controller with more functions and a bigger and more precise thrust lever, please continue reading the next reviews. Read more about the 3D pro…

If you like futuristic looking flight controls, maybe this one is something for you. The X52 Flight Control System is a very good product, which gives you a very smooth control of your aircraft. It comes with a lot of buttons and it uses the powerful smart technology software so you can program your controler for each game in a different way. You have the ability to use  a stopwatch with this system, which makes your flying more accurate and you also have the ability to place the throttle quadrant on any place what is comfortable for you. If you are interested in flying modern planes with a joystick or you are interested in combat flying, this will be your choice. But because the saitek X52 joystick is not really cheap, I also will give you a short review after this post about a similar, cheaper flight simulator joystick which you can choose without negative thoughts. But if you want more information about this high end flight control system, click here. Or if you wish to read some more reviews from (mostly very satisfied) customers, then click here: directly to the reviews.

First to say, the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick is a very good and popular alternative of a flight simulator yoke, which has lots of satisfied customers. It’s installed very fast, because it comes with a plug and play function, so you can take off right away. But if you want to program your buttons, you can also do that and make it more individual for you. You can handle the flight controls very smoothly and precise and everything also on your PS3. Also it is not my favorit product, because the throttle looks a bit too big,  you get a solid flight simulator joystick with a throttle quadrant for less than 50$.  The thrustmaster t-flight hotas x joystick has really a lot of functions and you will have a lot of fun with it. So if you like the design of the stick or you prefer combat flight games, you should definetly take a look at it and have a look what other customers say about the product.  So if you want to see more reviews, just click here.
