Not so great
I've been using this throttle quadrant for IFR training using X-Plane 11 on a nw iMac. It kind of works, but since using it more I've discovered a flaw that doesn't seem to be software-related:
Fine RPM control. The issue is that while on approach you need to be able to control the RPMs accurately in order to achieve the a uniform descent rate. In the 172 I fly, throttle should be set to about 2000 to achieve a 100 kt groundspeed and 500 ft/minute descent. This is almost impossible using this throttle because it either goes way below or way above. Very difficult to get any fine control. It appears there's an issue with the sensors at that position. I guess there's a reason so many of these appear used on Ebay. Unfortunately, the options for a decent throttle by other makers are obscenely overpriced. In general, Saitek's equipment is ok...but not much better than just ok. I guess if you want to be in aviation, don't be cheap. Just fork it over for the better equipment and don't complain about the cost (or find a different hobby?)

I wanted to keep my scan up along with Vmc demo's and single engine approaches using X-Plane 11. This was added to my existing system without any hassles other than configuring X-Plane 11 when I'm using a multi engine model.

Sporty's delivered in 2 days; ordered on a Sunday night, had it Tuesday night. What more can I ask for??

Great sim throttle unit
Designed to be combined with an other one; the lever knobs can be swapped as needed. Very good feel of control levers and long ways which makes for precise settings.

Pros: Easy, sturdy mounting. Easy to setup and customize. Comes with extra control knobs so you can setup for a 1,2,3, or 4 engine aircraft. Cons: HAven't found any yet. I have the Yoke, pedals, and extra throttle quadrant from Saitek and they all feel robust and authentic.

Pros: If you are going to fly duels then adding an additional throttle quadrant makes it that much more realistic. Cons: I try to fly simulation as close as I fly real planes and most of the planes I rent tend to have push and pull throttles and this product is a lever action but it is not a big deal. Great product great price.

It says "additional" (so I suppose it's to create a multi-engine quadrant) - does that mean that this unit comes with a USB plug? (If it's their custom PS2 plug, how would that be connected, given that the yoke unit has only one PS2 connector)..?
SvenF on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The separate quadrant comes with a USB plug attached, so it is a true 'additional' unit and can be connected directly to your PC or to the yoke unit if preferred.
I know you can use two for a twin engine set up. Can you also switch out the knobs? ie black,black,blue,blue,red,red
A shopper on Jan 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can switch the knobs.
Does this work for the PC game FSX?
Destiny P on Nov 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will work with FSX.
Will this work with Logitech joystick?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The joystick and the control you should be able to work together. Both are configured via the software.
