The Aspiring Pilot’s Introduction to Flight Simulation Hardware
Whether your preferred plane is commercial or private, the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with included Throttle Quadrant is a must-have for beginning and advanced flight simulation enthusiasts. Delivering realistic and precise control while enhancing muscle memory, the Yoke and Throttle Quadrant with five total axes simulate what it feels like to truly fly an aircraft. Saitek’s Pro Flight equipment is modular and interchangeable, and the Yoke anchors a comprehensive flight sim setup. There’s no better way to begin your flight sim experience than with Saitek, the market leader in high-performance flight simulation hardware.
Simple Plug-and-Play Installation
The Throttle Quadrant connects to the Yoke via PS/2 connector cable, and the Yoke directly connects to a USB port on your PC or Mac. You can then simply load your favorite sim, set controls in the sim’s options menu, and you’re all set for virtual flight without the need to load drivers or install extra software. The Yoke’s four-foot-long USB cable frees you to place the controls where they’re most convenient for you.
Pro Flight Yoke with Durable Metal Shaft
Unlike the mostly plastic offerings on the market, Saitek’s Pro Flight Yoke utilizes a durable stainless steel shaft with precision bearings for smooth, predictable elevator and aileron control. Whether navigating the front-to-back, side-to-side, or vertical axes, all controls are right at your fingertips. The built-in stopwatch is perfect for timing approaches, and if your PC lacks available USB ports, an integrated USB Hub provides a docking station for additional Saitek hardware
Pro Flight Throttle Quadrant with Detachable Knobs
Every Pro Flight Yoke includes a Pro Flight Throttle Quadrant. For precise control over multi-engine aircraft, additional Throttle Quadrants are available. The Quadrant’s levers are fully programmable. Detachable lever knobs enable you to customize your flight by configuring any combination of throttle, flaps, mixture or propeller pitch. Simply remove the lever knobs, create the configuration that works best for you, and then assign commands to the levers in your favorite sim. The levers’ detents – physical markings indicating where a certain action takes places – simplify control of your plane’s idle and reverse thrusters.
Powerful Programming Software (PC Only)
The Yoke and Quadrant combo comes with 25 buttons and switch positions, more than enough to assign the essential controls in your favorite sim. However, if you need even more programming capability, simply go to the Downloads page on Saitek.com and download the Drivers and Software for your computer’s operating system. You can then use a three-position switch to cycle through three different modes. The ability to switch modes elevates the total number of user-definable controls to 75.
Rugged Mounting Hardware
Saitek’s Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle Quadrant are both equipped with adaptable mounting clamps which provide the freedom to configure your kit in any manner you see fit. Whether on top of your desk or clamped to the front, you can securely place the controls exactly where you want them.
