I'm a long-time fan of Microsoft Flight Simulator. I "fly" with the joystick in my left hand so that I can use the mouse with my right hand to click switches and look around the virtual cockpit. This makes using the joystick's throttle cumbersome, so I decided to get an add-on throttle. The Saitek Throttle Quadrant fit the bill perfectly.

Let me say up front that I was initially a bit leery about purchasing this unit because of reports of "phantom keystrokes," but I'm happy to say I've been using it for several days with no problems whatsoever.

There is an included software disc but I would recommend not using it as it might be the cause of the problems some people have been having. I did not use it, nor did I need to--I simply plugged the unit into a USB port and Windows XP recognized it immediately. It showed up in the Game Controllers control panel and was configurable in Flight Simulator without the need for extra drivers or configuration software.

Note: If you're using this with Flight Simulator, in the Flight Simulator Settings > Controls > Calibration screen select the Saitek Throttle Quadrant as the Controller Type, then select Simple Controls and set the Sensitivity to maximum and the Null Zones to minimum. If you don't do this you won't get the full range of control from the levers. You can set each controller individually, so doing this won't affect your joystick or yoke if you're using one.

The included desk clamp mounts to either the bottom or back of the unit, giving you a couple of different options as to the position of the unit in relation to your desk. I found the desk clamp to be secure and foolproof.

Functionally this unit is exactly what I wanted.

I had previous bought the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke system and was very impressed with the construction, much better than the CH yoke I have been using. So, I bought the Saitek Throttle Quadrant to add to it to give me multi-engine capability.

I mount it next to the other Throttle Quadrant and plugged it into one of the 3 spare USB ports on the yoke. MY system and FS9 saw it right away. It came with a bag of colored knobs for easy reconfiguration. I tested all the buttons with no problems.

Note: I did not load the software. I have tried this with the Yoke and FS9 would crash. I removed it, and they work fine without it.

I have taken many flights and used the Throttle Quadrant for several hours now without a single problem. Thanks Saitek for a solid product.

Also, This product was available thru ANTONLINE who were great in processing and shipping my order. Received my order in 4 days.

Setup was fairly easy. I was not told that there are 3 switches associated with the X/Y/Z axis, as they pass Zero. It is a nice touch. I have the throttle engage the brake, the Prop engages the reverse thrust, and so on. Just my choices. So there are actually three axis sliders and 9 switches.

Install the drivers bur do not install the setup software, use the FS-9 or FS-X controls setup. It was all auto selectable.

I installed mine in Flight Simulator-X and the mounting is adjustable and much better than the CH product. The levers simulate the real thing better, too. Well built and solid. Thanks Saitek.

I got this throttle for my birthday. I had it on my wishlist for a long time but could not convince myself to buy it.
Well, now I'm glad I have it, actually, it's made the simulation so much more realistic. Spinning out of a parking spot with one engine, practicing single engine flying, and just alone the feel of having a somewhat realistic throttle in your hand adds a lot of realism. The fact that the leverage is very long also give you more precision when changing power settings.

The only problems I ran into are the setup. Saitek for some reason uses an auto calibration as soon as the joystick/throttle is deteceted when plugged in. After that, there is no calibrating via software manually. When you go to the Saitek forums, the majority of the problems are revolving about this auto-calibration issue. You would think Saitek would learn. Either way, the fix is quick, all you need to do is to delete the auto calibration entry from the registry, and it will re-calibrate again, usually this second time it does it perfectly. If you need more info, go to the Saitek website and their forums, you will find all the information there.
I also had to change the sensitivity and null zone settings in Flight Simulator 9, I recommend reading about this in the forums also, but I would say within 30 minutes I was flying and never looked back.

The quality of the joystick is quite good. It's made out of plastic but seems very sturdy. There are two ways to mount it to a surface, and I like that flexibility.

Overall I highly recommend this throttle. I do wish it had four levers, not three, although I do fly mostly twin engine jets, so that works well for me. The left lever is my speedbrake, the middle and right one are the two throttles.
