Best value on the market
Very nice feel and buttons. So much better than the Logitech. Worth the price difference. I wish the bracket were a bit wider, doesn’t clear my table by 0.1”.

Worth the investment
This is a well thought out product for GA and airline simulation alike. The pricing is a little on the high side, however once you get your hands on the product you see the high quality of materials used along with the workmanship that put the product together, and you know it is built to last.

A nice bonus is the lack of center threshold for the yoke which drastically improves the overall pitch and roll function and realism, especially when making minor inputs.

Retired 747 captain loves it!
I bought this for my dad for Xmas. It replaced a Thrustmaster joystick controller, which we could never get the elevator trim working properly with X-Plane. This unit worked pretty much right out of the box. It's more realistic and a lot more fun.

Very happy with this yoke.
This is my first yoke. It is a VAST improvement over the joystick I was using. It’s built well, looks great, and flight is so smooth.

Best yoke ever for the money
This Honeycomb yoke is the best ever. It has the feel of a real yoke. Very smooth and accurate with regards to X Plane 11. Bottom line - an absolutely AWESOME YOKE!

Excellent Built Quality and Price
Great quality for the price. I love the fact you can turn it 90 degrees both ways. In addition this yoke comes with an integrated avionics panel so you save yourself an addition 100 dollars if you were to pick the Logitech Pro Flight system.

What is the best software to buy with this?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend x-plane 11.
What throttle quadrant would work with this Honeycomb yoke?
JOHN H on Dec 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Honeycomb makes one but you have to order that one from the EU.
Any of the throttle quadrants by other manufactures will work. Almost all simulator programs auto recognize what you have connected. I swap out different yokes, peddles and quadrants all the time depending on the aircraft I want to fly.
does this have centering indentations like the Saitek yokes?
RobinT R on Dec 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It does self Center and feels like it’s centering between opposing springs. It doesn’t have a detent such that you feel it click into a center position. Spring pressure is light near the centered position and gets heavier the further you get from centered. Once trim is properly set, it feels fairly realistic. Pulling on the yoke in the flare to land, I think it feels realistic and I’ve had the best landings I’ve ever made in the simulator with this yoke. I was using joysticks before so I have no personal experience with the Saitek yoke.
Is it possible to adjust the trim?
robertk on Nov 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is possible to assign trim control.
Does it work with ELITE SIM?
jorge m on Jan 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should work with that sim.
Will this be compatible with Microsoft's next release in 2020?
Troy G on Dec 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should be.
Are you certain you will be able to ship this product on Dec 13? That's what the product page shows.
fppilot on Dec 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The date is supplied by the manufacturer. We can not guarantee that the item will ship on this date.
How much does it weight?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 4 lbs.
Is this Mac/Apple compatible?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is Mac compatible.
Is this compatible with X-Plane 10?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is compatible.
Does it have force feedback, that is, can the pilot feel how much pressure the control surfaces are exerting in the yoke?

Got rudders?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It does not have force feedback. We have rudder peddles available from CH products or Saitek.
I want to like this but I'd be switching from a Redbird yoke and the yoke shaft looks pretty small. I doubt if the feedback is sufficient to emulate a real aircraft. How much feedback is there?
Michael on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The feedback is slightly less than the Redbird yoke. Difficult to measure the difference.
Can this be approved to be used as a BATC?
John O on Nov 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, it can not.
