The CH Products Flight Sim Yoke has been on the market for many years and a popular device for control input. A gentleman by the name of Dave Nunez decided to give a go on a few modifications. He outlined the work he did in this blog post. The resistance reduction mod looks particularly good as small control inputs have always been a sore spot for simmers. If you are keen on tinkering with hardware, give his advice a go!
