There are really only two options in a reasonable price range:

there's the venerable CH yoke:

and the new Saitek yoke and throttle set:

They both come with 3-axis throttle controllers, although the Saitek throttle is separate from the actual yoke (+ can be placed anywhere; - takes up extra real estate)

The Saitek also has the advantage of a stainless steel yoke shaft which should solve the problem many of us have had with the CH yoke, namely some stickiness in the elevator axis.

Saitek all the way. Very smooth and no sticky. Plus, I love being able to mount the throttle quad in a relatively realistic position. Also, the price is cheaper than CH. CH doesn't have the market cornered on flight yokes anymore.
