Problems with throttle and rudder, poor customer service

Not Recommended

I purchased this item 5 years ago. About 2 years ago, I had problems with the throttle registering 100% when it was set for 20 to 25%. Customer service was no help, the only answer they had was that I buy a new one. After it sat for a year an a half not being used, I did manage to take it apart and clean the potentiometer, but it was a challenge to get it put back together - it seems like they have many more parts than they should need. I did get it back together and the throttle now appears to function correctly - again, with no help from Saitek.

Today, one rudder peddle break actuator made a horrible sound and then lost all resistance. I took it apart and found that a plastic piece holding a relatively heavy spring broke. Looks like a very poor design to me - a thin plastic hook holding a heavy spring? Like they thought this thing would last a reasonable amount of time?

Pros:
easy to set up and use works smoothly no complaints
Cons:
rudder pedals need some better way to secure on the ground they move while you are using the but the action seems great

I feel it has helped me greatly in my quest to teach my self to fly I am not a gamer and I don't know a lot about computers this set up worked great and I can finally start practicing keeping the ball in the middle

Pros:
The yoke handles with the degree of precision expected and the rudder pedals to the same. The throttle quadrant does a good job on larger aircraft such as a 738 when configured for flaps, spoilers, and throttle.
Cons:
Did not come with interchangeable knobs or a way to link the throttle together (which I thought that it did). Either way, that is the only negative thing that I have to say.

Great product for the money and installation is simple and easy.

Pros:
Just about everything was at or better than expected. The yoke and rudders come very close to athentic feel due to the ability of being able to adjust tension.
Cons:
Was a little difficult getting yoke and throttle quadrant to sit level and steady on desk, but after awhile was able to get it level.

Great buy. Has good authentic feel and feed back. Controls are accurate but not too sensitive.

Pros:
The set-up instructions were easy and descriptive. The rudder pedal directions need to be followed to the letter to avoid the brakes always on error. I am running FS2004 and XP Pro so the specific FS2004 instructions in the rudder pedal manual (after a couple reads) fixed the brake always on issue I was initially having.
Cons:
None yet.

Pros:
Nice feel, professional look. Ample buttons. Adds a ton to the flight simming experience.
Cons:
Could be just a little bit more rugged. The pedals are kinda loud when moving the rudder. I can hear the spring noise even with a headset on.

I also bought a Saitek keyboard, headset and I have the radio panel on the way. I'm very happy with the quality of the product, for the price. Wish they were a little more rugged, but since that would increase the cost I'm fine with the compromise they came up with.

Pros:
Yoke and Throttle Quadrant are quite nice, and control of aircraft on Microsoft Flight Simulator is very realistic.
I would recommend these!
Cons:
Rudder pedals are a bust-I could not get them to function correctly.

I spent hours trying to get the rudder pedals to work correctly, but failed to be able to use them. Movement of the pedals unfortunately controls the ailerons and elevator as well as the rudder but in an uncoordinated manner. The pedals do not control only the rudder and brakes, and as such does not work in concert with the yoke as in a real aircraft. The written directions supplied with the pedals are cryptic, and written at a level for a person well versed with computer gaming, which I am not. Sporty's technical department referred me to Saitek help center. When I called Saitek, the technician said he could not help with setting them up. I'm at a loss......

Pros:
Plug and play use, excellent feel and control, easy to customize button action and use.
Cons:
Had trouble getting the braking setting working in MS Flight Sim X

These are excellent units and provide a more realistic flying experience. The clock and stop watch on the yoke are a nice touch and useful when flying instrument approaches. I highly recommend this product.
