My Pops just got a new PC. He was never able to play all the FS I bought for him because he was running a Compaq 233.
I was speaking with him the other day and he wants a yoke with rudder pedals and all that jazz. He's partial to the big birds. Something between $0 and $250 would be good.

A yoke is something, meant funny /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif



I think he is talking about a throttle here.

Your best bet is to go with CH,about $100 u.s. I have their pedals,excellent.

My only wish is that someone made a good force feedback yoke.

Check CH Products out: http://www.chproducts.com/retail/usb_home.html

No forcefeedback, but people say their stuff is top notch. And they make civillian-style stuff too!

A yoke is what you fly multi engined a/c with (at least used to) due to the heavier control forces. You wont do very well using a yoke with IL-2/FB, unless you stick with the He-111 & TB-3. Best get yourself a good joystick if you want to fly fighters. I recommend the Saitek 3D FF.

I don't see how you can play with this, but to each his own /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Here's a good yoke, but I don't know who makes it:

Yeah the CH one even has prop pitch and fuel mixture levers IIRC, which definitely comes in handy for this.

actually sickboy, if your dad did ever want to give this game a try he could do just fine with a yoke instead of a stick.

Two guys are sitting in deck-chairs sunning themselves. The first guy turns to the second guy and says "Nice out, isn't it?" "Yea", says the second guy "but best you put it away - somebody's coming".

The CH stuff is pretty nice for the price. after a year of use I had to rebuild the pedals (no biggie really) and the only issue I have with teh yoke is that the throttle quadrant is right behind teh right horn of the yoke, making a proper landing flare rather difficult with turbulence and a crosswind. I have been using the separate throttle on my Saitek X-45 and that solves that problem.

The USB yoke and pedals go for $129 each (or less on the web)

You can't fly a warbird with a yoke! You need a stick for that! Get a Cougar if you have money , if not get a MS FF or a X45.

Yes you can fly a warbird with a yoke, I have CH Pro Yoke and pedals and Ive had plenty of kills on and offline, plus you can fly the civvy sims with it also. A good buy in my eyes just the FFB missing but you can live without it

dude check out best buy. They have the best selection on flight sticks and yokes...and even rudder peddals. The stick i use is the CH Combat Flight Stick and CH Throttle...i absolutely love it...all buttons are programable....and easy to figure out
