Top Customer Reviews
The device is extremely light compared to similar units. The resistance, however, is slightly stronger, making some kind of fixing it to the table almost mandatory. Either that or you'll have to push it down every time you move it, so the friction does the stabilizing.
The motion is linear rather than arcing, which requires some time getting used to. I'm still not sure if this was a good decision.
There is a number of hat switches and buttons on the throttle and you'll probably never run out of them. Their placing, however, is not as good as with Cougar's throttle, for example. In my opinion, an ergonomic rework of the unit would be beneficial. In any case, if you need more buttons, programming options make further possibilities almost infinite.
There is also a microstick which is quite useful, but there are no dials. A minus, as modern flight sims make good use of dial controls.
Programming abilities are exceptional and belong to the very top. Complemented with CH Fighterstick, there is no other equipment to rival it.
As with other CH gear, the feel is somewhat toyish, but don't be fooled by it - this is a quality product and it will last very long time.
Verdict: Fine product to complement your CH gear. Reliable, with great programming abilities, but it could have been even better with dials, arcing motion and somewhat improved ergonomics.
1) I love the feel of the throttle. It is solid in your hand, slides easily and for me all buttons are within easy reach
2) The programming software is immensely powerful! I was totally blown away at what you can make this throttle do in the way of programmability...especially if you have any other CH gear (I have the CH Fighterstick but no rudder pedals).
3) There is a control on the throttle you can use as a rudder (if like me you don't want to shell out for pedals just yet). Everyone has their preferences, but I HATE having the joystick "twist" be a rudder control...too many times you try to push forward and left on the stick and you end up moving the rudder unintentionally. One reason I loved my Saitek X35 was that it had a "rocker" switch on the throttle that was PERFECT for rudder. Please note that the CH Fighterstick DOES NOT have a joystick "twist" on it...so that cannot double as a rudder control even if you wanted it to. I only mention that because many times the CH Fighterstick is teamed up with this throttle (which is what I bought as well).
4) If it matters to you, the drivers and software are available as far back as Windows 98 and as far forward as Windows 7. I still run Falcon 4 Allied force on a trusty Windows 2000 machine and am thrilled that there are drivers for that O/S!Read more ›
I have been a joystick gamer for many years, and due to my budgets always being low I opted for Saitek products. I have used Saitek for over 8 years. Since I have used these CH products and figured out the programing tools. I have decided I will NEVER buy Saitek again.
The quality of these products are superior in every single way, programming tools, quality of pots and switches.
First and foremost, you need to visit Radio Shack and buy some Superlock fastners! It is super heavy duty velcro that will hold many times its weight. It is made by 3M and is one of the best fastner products made. Cut them into fourths and put them on the for coners of you throttle and table, and it will NEVER move it will feel like you screwed it down to the table. Same goes for the Fighterstick. Here is the link for fasteners in Amazon http://www.amazon.com/4-Strips-Replacement-E-ZPass-Mounting-Strips/dp/B002DZJQ0A/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1403552920&sr=8-2-fkmr0&keywords=superlock+fastener+strip
What made me decide to ditch Saitek was the X52 throttle, it was practically useless in function. The CH Pro throttle has three easy to access 4 way switches, 8 way POV hat, 1 thumb mouse/jystick, and 3 buttons!! it feels totally natual to use and you don't have to look at it to find your positions. Provided you do not have small hands. (I have long slender hands so the Fighterstick and Pro Throttle fit me perfect.)
The throttle adjustment can be set for helicopter cyclic(centered calibration) or airplane throttle. Which is completely awesome!Read more ›
