I have to admit this was pretty low on my "Want" list. Most of the planes that I "fly" use a throttle quadrant. The ones that don't will respond to a throttle quadrant anyway, so why bother.
And then I started thinking of *MAYBE*, just maybe you understand, taking some flight lessons. And the places around here mostly use Cessna 172 for those lessons. So....
This is not like the other Saitek units except for the height and width of the front panel. The depth is almost 4 ¾ inches deep. Seven and a half inches measured from the end of the throttle knob to the back of the case. Ten and three quarters when the throttle is pulled all of the way out.
And it weighs enough to be listed as a blunt object at a murder scene. If you order one of these be on the lookout for a LARGE box.
Everything went fine attaching it to my desk (they even used 2 clamps on it). Win 7 64-bit recognized it without installing anything.
But the magic occurred the first time that I reached for the throttle (the black one on the far left). I suddenly became decades younger and far away from here.
I used to work at a small airport 40+ years ago. One of my jobs was to taxi the rental Cessna's to the rental office or back after a rental was returned. Along with cleaning and washing them : )
As I reached for that knob to pull it back to the low flow position it all came rushing back to me like nothing else ever has.
Believe me - If you EVER want to get in a light Cessna, even if it's just for a simple orientation flight, then this is just what you will want to practice with before you do so.Read more ›
A "authentic" constant speed TPM with throttle friction locks and vernier mixture and push lock prop lever will cost you upwards of $500. Could this have better designed, sure but you won't find anything that nearly exactly duplicates a Cessna throttle assembly for this price.
1. Feels like the real thing
2. Accurate lever travel
3. High quality construction
4. Full metal slides
5. Potentiometers high quality/ fine throttle adjustment possible
6. Mounts to other Saitek pro flight products
1. No friction adjustment
2. Toggle switches are only "on/off"
3. Knobs are not removable, so no carb heat
4. Doesn't work with ASA On Top
If you fly single engine aircraft either in real life or just the sim this will give you that little extra bit of realism your looking for.
Quick edit: One review commented that it takes two toggles to do any action since they're not a normal 2 position switch. I find that they work fine if you set them up in FSUIPC to have an action on the press and an action on the release. You'll need registered FSUIPC for that, however, but you should really have that anyways.
First of all, I have several Saitek products, including the yoke, rudder pedals and throttle quadrant. I have never had a problem with any of them in FSX until I purchased the TPM.
Unfortunately, the TPM's throttle control doesn't work - it smoothly works from full idle to about halfway in, but then it "jumps" to full throttle in FSX. I've lost half my throttle control using the TPM (can't set a cruise RPM, can only go from descent RPM to full). I've downloaded all the latest drivers from Saitek, reset my FSX profile, and scoured the web. Unfortunately, it looks like the problem I'm having affects other users of the TPM as well ([...]), but the only "fix" is to delete a registry key, but the problem will come back.
I was really looking forward to getting this controller, but it's been a terrible disappointment - it's worthless. I'm going back to the throttle quadrant - it isn't realistic for the Cessna 172, but at least I can control the throttle smoothly through all the settings instead of "smooth from idle to halfway then...BANG! FULL RPM!" that the TPM has put me in.

Be sure to edit the throttle, prop, and mixture in the appdata. Aside from that, it's an incredible flight sim item.Published 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
This is one of the best Saitek Pro Flight products. If you fly mostly single engine prop planes in FSX or Prepar3D then you really should buy this. It's very well built. Read morePublished 8 months ago by B. Dever
