Out of all the Saitek hardware I have this is probably the one that works best.
The throttle quadrant from Saitek is great for many reasons.Perhaps it is not the most visually pleasing flight simulator hardware, but it is very easy to set up with with the FSX configuration.
The movement of the levers are smooth and quiet. Someone told me it's because Saitke went ahead and usedmindustrial lubricant... terrifying yet effective. The simulator responds perfectly to the movement of the levers. Each lever has a push button at the bottom which you cans et to be reverse thrust. Enter each lever there are 2 buttons. These can be used for flaps, slats, etc
I use it every single time that I use the flight simulator. After doing years of research (I check the market for stuff even when I don't need it) this is by far the best throttle system in terms of quality and price. I really want to try and use Saitek's TPM but until that day comes, this one stays with me for sure.
You can also change the knobs on each lever. You could also buy a second throttle quadrant, that way you fan set up for twin engine and even four engine aircraft (such as the 747). You would need to use a third for four engined propeller aircraft though.
I would, at this point, add something negative about this product but I can't find anything bad about it other than is look. A definite must for FS fans.
