    "This is my husband's favorite joystick. He must play flight sims 20 hours a week, and is working on building a $5,000+ setup. For now, this joystick fulfills his needs perfectly."

    "Amazon's choice for flight sim yokes, this product is generally well-reviewed by users and provides an engaging experience for players who want to load up their favorite flight sim. Not the cheapest by any means but also not a budget-buster, it's a good option for those not looking for just a joystick."

    "Would be a good stick if not for the incredibly irregular dead zones, the zeroes that move every time the stick is plugged in. The throw is fantastic, and the stick feels solid and good to use. If they fix the bugs they could have a winner. I will reserve judgement and wait."

    #4Eclipse Yoke

    Eclipse Yoke
    Featuring many of the buttons and switches you'd find in an actual cockpit, the Eclipse Yoke greatly enhances the realism of your flight simulator programs. Six analog 10-bit axis give you control over aileron, elevator, propeller pitch, fuel mixture, throttle, and rudder movement, and the colored knobs for throttle, prop, and mixture let you fly with ease and confidence.

    "I am a heavy gamer of racing games. I love Logitech controls, but they tend to be fragile (I have already broken 3 sets in the past 7 years!) and they don't have too many programmable buttons on it. This means that for some games you still need to access certain functions with keyboard and mouse. I think Eclipse Yoke really fits the gap! So excited for this cockpit!"
