    Congrad. Looks great and I sure it is of the same quality as the rest of Go Flight products. Just one question I have not seen a price break down on this product as yet, and what type of lead time are we to expectinf? Good luck at the show and don’t forget you U.S. customers. Go Flight is my choice of Flight Sim hardware, and looking forward to be flying with you and your products.

    WIsh i could know what does it cost, the hardware manufactures must try to keep it resonable, so that we can afford it and they can sell a huge number too. If things are too expensive like parts of the real airplane, it no longer is a hobby, but will only remain a fantacy.

    I wonder if we can expect a 737 style throttle quadrant next? =)

      Technically they released a TQ already, you should go to their website and check out their modules, you’ll see it there.

    Wow it’s priced at 750 of course they would try over price it like every other sim hardware

    $750? If that’s true then it’s too much. They are pricing in the region of the replica panel manufacturers. Their gear is clearly not aimed at that market, but a step up from mass market toys. With that kind of price leap they are targeting a very small market indeed. I believe this unit would have to be half that price to appeal to the right market, and even then I would be surprised if they sold a load. They have made this mistake before with some of their more expensive gear. Ended up having to slash prices. I know as I was the lucky beneficiary of this discount

    That’s with most flight sim products. I’m always baffled people actually pay these prices. Often some flimsy piece of hardware would cost more than my whole gaming computer.

    Often some flimsy piece of hardware can cost more than a private pilot’s license.

    I would not go as far as to say the company has a reputation for quality. Their Throttle quadrant is flimsy and cheap feeling…

    I have no idea of the issues involved in mass building a piece of hardware like this, it may not be easy to make it good and cheap. Good or bad, 750$ is for a very select group of simmers. Most hardware for home cockpit builders is insanely expensive.

    Goflight is not an inexpensive company as far as the pricing goes but they were reasonable compared to other manufacturers, so I thought this yoke would have been a decent price, of course not cheap but around 300 dollars, but 750 dollars is a huge disappointment. They could have easily made a profit pricing it at 250 dollars but 750 is just over doing it and everyone that was waiting for this yoke have agreed that the pricing is a joke. Hopefully they realize this rip off price won’t sell any units and dumb down the price
