I bought the Russian VKB Gladiator II j/s about 2 years ago. No collusion! It is heavy duty and a marvelous piece of kit. Similar quality to the way more expensive Warthog. Before that I had a Saitek X 52 which I still occasionally use which I bought in 2004 and would recommend that also. I use the throttle part in DCS.
Pedals - I do not use as they tear up the hardwood floor and SWMBO would be upset.
and they are a bit of pain anyway.
If you are in the market for a Yoke, hold out for the new and excellently reviewed Honeycomb one due almost immediately. Austin Meyer of X-Plane endorses it.
