Hi guys,

Thinking of using some Christmas and B-day money to use by buying the CH products yoke and pedals, because next weekend I will be doing a desktop sim display at a EAA Young Eagles Fly-In.

Do you think they are worth $200 for the pair (USB)?

Thanks,

Eric

Eric
1) had them for years, very strong (for plastic) and reliable
2) can be easily opened and transformed later into a column yoke ( not hooked on a column,...dimanteld and rebuilt as a column...can send U pics)
3) try EBay if U have time, lots of them... search Yoke

I'll have some photos too please about CH Yoke into control column. Very Happy

I've made a column with great pitch / elevator control. ( pitch control goes into ch pro yoke box )

Having problems making the aileron control smooth without too much resistance between the two control columns.

Interested in seeing what other have dome for dual yoke/column setup

Regards

Well they arrived today and they are okay. Boy, after flying with a stick all this time, it's sure good to have a yoke and pedals - a big BIG change.
