Buying a yoke

Postby AndyToop » Wed Apr 23, 2008 1:56 pm

I'm going to be in New York early may. I'm looking to buy a new yoke. Anyone know if there are any good shops in either Manhattan or Jersey City where I would be able to buy one?

Also anyone have any good/bad experiences with either the CH or Saitek yokes? I've had a CHflightstick before and it was really good quality and very durable. But the Saitek looks like it has a much more versatile throttle quadrant that comes with it.

Any help appreciated

It's two or three years old, but I have liked my recent CH USB flight yoke. It's hard to put into words, but it SORT OF has a real feel to it...

It has also made me a thumb-trim junkie.

The CH rudder pedals on the other hand have almost zero resistance for rudder or braking, and seem to be quite touchy- with slight input equaling significant yaw response.
