IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to extremely high demand for flight simulation hardware, an extended lead time applies on this unit. We are accepting pre-orders and will fill the orders sequentially based on time and date of order (first come, first serve). We are anticipating late Fall 2020 to complete shipment on pre-orders.
Item qualifies for free ground shipping via UPS (Lower 48 USA Only - Additional Items May Void Promotion)
top quality flight yoke, and was shipped promptly and was very well packaged. Overall, i am completely satisfied and would buy from aircraft spruce again
The build quality seems to very good. A delightful experience over the joystick I was using in Xplane 11. I thought at first the elevator action was a little stiff, but with the proper trim setting it works very well in normal flight. I certainly would recommend it to anyone. I plan on downloading Microsoft Flight Sim in a couple of days and I am looking forward to using the Honeycomb yoke in that program. The experience with Aircraft Spruce was also 5 star.
Grandson loves it...can not wait until the throttle comes in...neither can grandson....your company is nice to deal with...I have called many times checking on back order and everyone is nice
So far, works seamlessly with FS2020. Canâ€™t wait to get the throttle quadrant.
Everything was said in the previous reviews. If it was possible, I certainly would give it more than 5 stars. Solidity, look&feel, buttons, professional look. The only thing Id like to see improved would be to fit it with a mini USB hub to plug in a throttle quadrant and rudder pedals. Because when you fly VR with the link cable, you sometimes have to make a choice on some laptops that only have 2 or 3 USB connectors.
I was using a x-box controller, this was a major up grade. If they could add force feed back on landing it would increase realism. I did order it on back order, but was shipped fast.
Still waiting on a computer to hook it up
The yoke worked perfectly with MSFS 2020 right out of the box. Only requires a USB connection (no external power source needed) Flying with it was a whole new experience (in a good way) I did need to calibrate it to eliminate some dead zones on center, but after that it worked perfectly. Highly recommended! Exceptional value!
This product is top of the line and I like the extra functionality that the built in switch panel provides.
Joystick is amazing and really changed the flight sim experience for me! Ive been using a HOTAS joystick since I started with flight sims, and Ive wanted one of these for years. Honeycomb was a really good first yoke. I really like that it has a full 180 degrees of rotation instead of the 90 degrees with most other consumer yokes. The build quality is very sturdy, with the exception of the engine ignition switch. (It feels a little cheap, and I wish the start position had a rock-back feature so it didnt just stay on the starting position. I just ended up reassigning the switch to something else. The rest of the switches feel great. The only downside was that I ordered this right at the height of a popularity surge in Microsoft Flight Sim and it took 3 months to arrive due to an extreme backorder situation. (This is not Aircraft Spruces issue. Corona Virus isolation created a need for escapism, and with YouTube video game lets play channels reviewing the heck out of MSFS, it created a vacuum for flight sim hardware! Its cool that its creating a new market of products for new enthusiasts. Its actually quite exciting!) I will be purchasing the Honeycomb throttle quadrant next, and a set of foot pedals.
At this time there are no matching rudder pedals. Honeycomb is currently developing the pedals with expected release in 2020.
The pedals would connect directly to the computer on another USB port. This would also be a direct connection to the computer.
Yes, it should be compatible with the Steam edition FSX.
30 days from receipt. Unit must be in new, resellable condition for full credit.
This unit does not have an integrated throttle control. Please see the Honeycomb Bravo (PART # 13-23178)for the companion throttle unit which is due out later this year.
This yoke system does not have integrated throttle control. You could use another brand throttle control or the keyboard on the computer.
