For Sale / Wanted / Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle Quadrant 50
« Last post by kiremonger on Wed, 21 Apr 2021, 19:11:59 »
Hi All,

I've recently upgraded to the Honeycomb Alpha Yoke, so am selling my Saitek Yoke and integrated throttle quadrant.

I've upgraded the yoke by adding a BU0836A 12-Bit Joystick Controller which increases the sensitivity/fidelity of the aileron and elevator; I've also added 3 simple push button switches to the front - blue, black and red buttons to increase the usefulness of the yoke.

When you connect the yoke you get two devices show up:


The 'Saitek Pro Flight Yoke' operates as normal, but DOES NOT control the aileron or elevator axes.

The 'BU0836A Interface' operates the aileron and elevator axes and the three push buttons on the front.

The Throttle Quadrant connects to the yoke via a round PS/2 mouse-type connector and is managed and controlled through the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke.

I used FSUIPC to map axes and controls to the yoke.

If you wish, you can disable the 'BU0836A Interface' by pressing 3 toggle switches on the back which return the aileron and elevator axes to the Saitek yoke. This essentially returns the yoke to factory default.

Extra push buttons:

yoke 3
yoke 3

Overall view:

yoke 4

Rear view:

yoke 5
yoke 5

This is in excellent condition.

I live in Easton-in-Gordano in Bristol and am happy to deliver in person in the Bristol area, if that helps.

I'm not too interested in the money for this, although I'm asking for 50 as I think that's what it is worth, but more important is that it goes to a good home as it works well and has lots of life left in it.

Meanwhile I hope the BFSG meetings can start again in the next few months; would be great to see everybody.

My news! I'm now flying again; during lock-down I bought into a PA-28 syndicate aircraft at Gloucester airport - https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/registration/G-BKCC I'm now fully checked out and have my Single Engine Piston rating back, so happy to take people up if they wish.

Feel free to contact me through BFSG, or telephone 07951 725187 or email keith.iremonger@kitcnet.net
