These units are excellent quality as we've come to expect from Saitek. The Yoke is is pretty solid and comes bundled with the throttle quad to give the same 3 axis (throttle, prop, mixture) functionality as that built into the CH yoke. It has a couple more buttons in total (including those on the throttle) over the CH unit which can be assigned to a couple of extra functions, and a handy little mode switch which I believe this is programmable but I only saw it being used as a basic timer. Good for calculating estimates between waypoints.

The shaft is constructed from stainless steel and provides excellent movement across the aileron and elevator axes. Just enough resistance to make movements deliberate. If you've ever put your hands on an X52 you'll know the quality of movement I'm talking about. It doesn't feel plastic!

I was particularly impressed with how the yoke is essentially a rectangular box. Very good for use in home cockpits, it should slot very well into a make-shift panel. But this design isn't particularly what they had in mind. It's like that so you can easily mount their new MFD's which will be released early next year. The yoke also has a built-in 3 port USB hub so you can plug in extra quads (first one is PS2) or the MFD's. You can also power the hub with an adapter (not included).

The mounting clamps are nice and thick and shouldn't be very prone to threading or breakage. The throttle can be mounted in several ways which is good if you have limited space, and they're also designed so you can mount an MFD on top of them.

All in all, while I consider the CH units to be top quality I think these Saitek units are going to give them a good run for their money.
