Elite Home Premium 8.6 and CH & Saitek Stuff

  • I started out with CH Products Flight Sim Yoke USB ( 200-615 ) and the Pro Pedals. Both work awesome within Elite Home Premium. Side Note: I had pulled the centering spring out of the Yoke years ago when I was playing around with FSX and X-Plane. Maybe they are on to something —- should airplanes yoke have centering springs as well? LOL

    Then, I decided to add the CH Products (Multi Eng) Throttle Quadrant USB (300-133).

    Then working through Eflite’s configuration Screen, I discovered that the TH/PR/MX controls on the Yoke were the same axis’s as the Multi-Eng Quadrant. There were a few other quirks as well. The show-stopper was that I found out that when I mapped the two ‘flip-switches’ on the Yoke to Gear and Flaps, that by default, the first two flip-switches on the throttle quadrant were mapped as Gear and Flaps. The more I played with it, the more problems I ran into.

    Solution: Buy the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System USB Yoke and (Single Engine) Throttle Quadrant.

    Yes, this did resolve the above problem. However, it introduced some new challenges. See next Post.
