View Full Version : CH Throttle with Yoke & Pedals
08-16-2002, 09:10 PM
I currently own CH Products Yoke and pedals and I am considering the purchase of the CH Products throttle. I find it a bit cumbersome to use the throttle mounted on top of the yoke while also using the yoke. Can anyone tell me who has the three pieces of hardware if there are any compatability issues and if they are generally pleased with the results. Thanks. Kevin

I have the USB yoke, pro pedals and pro throttle. No compatability issue at all. Well worth the investment. Perhaps try getting on ebay used to save some $$$$$ If you are not using the higher end yoke, it is worth upgrading.

I have the USB pedals, throttle, and the F16 Combat Stick as opposed to the yoke because of left slide clumsiness (but useable with the seperate throttle) due to a stroke a couple of years ago.
They work together well. Download from the chproducts site the current version of Control Manager and also the utility chstart which automates the loading of the last control mapping file used.
As an example, I also use X-Plane sim which only allows two USB HID (stick) devices. The Control Manager allows you to map up to sixteen devices to two virtual devices which the program can see. The downloaded version is more up-to-date than the one included on the driver disk. It also allows the throttle mode control to select different modes within each map so for example mode 1 is for FS2002, mode 2 is for x-plane, etc., as selected by pushing the mini-stick on the throttle. You may also wish to use different modes for different planes. Nice feature. A little complicated but the setup mapping is interactive and with an image of each CH device you add with hot spots to select the mapping paramaters -- sounds more complicated than actual use!!!

If you wait till Christmas CH is going to release a new throttle with dual levers and I think they will have a six lever set for twin props. I would wait for that instead of buying the single throttle they have now.
I use dual Suncom throttles, they are cheap if you can find them and if you get the USB adaptor from radio shack they are easy to set up and have no conflicts with my CH yoke and pedals. Much better set up than the existing CH throttle. Good Luck in what ever you use.
