Hey, What Up peeps? lol :lol:

Anyway, I have been recently thinking about getting a little more serious with the flight sim stuff, and, get a yoke, yet keep the joystick for my Airbus flights (seeing as how I've noticed that airbus cockpits always have a joystick instead of yoke ;) ). So, lucky me, in my recent flightsim.com newsletter, I came across this-http://www.fspilotsh...roducts_id=1263 Do you think that it would be a wise move, or should I go for something better? BTW, I was hoping for maybe a throttle quadrant with multi-engine control, is there a really good one available now?

I don't want anything of less value-it seems like it has some cool features ;)

dvapilot,
I have just bought a new computer upgraded for games and " flying " .

In researching the flight joysticks , I came across < Thrustmaster 16000M > which is special. because it uses Hall effect electronics to sense the motion of the
joystick. Its not much more expensive either.

Most joysticks use potentiometers , a resistance device that is varied by a sliding contact. The contact can have UNDETERMINED lifetime [ very long OR very short]

There are 2 valuable benefits of using a Hall effect instead of a potentiometer as sensors of the joystick motion:
1. there is no mechanical wear of a slider on the Hall effect
see http://sakae-tsushin...e_index_hsm.pdf for a drawing of the workings of the Hall effect device.

2. the Hall effect has perhaps 1,000 times more RESOLUTION than a potentiometer !
the Hall effect will produce much finer settings than a potentiometer.
