The Honeycomb Alpha Flight Controls Yoke & Switch Panel is the most advanced flight simulation system available to simmers, flight students and pilots. The yoke has a realistic full 180 yoke rotation and a solid steel shaft with dual linear ball bearings that provide smooth control with a dampened, self-centering mechanism and no center detent or dead zone. The base includes a Switch Panel with master, alternator, avionics and light switches as well as a 5-position ignition switch. The left and right handles feature one 8-way hat switch, two vertical and two horizontal 2-way rocker switches, three buttons and a push to talk button. The Dual Mounting Solution allows for full use with or without clamps. Two heavy duty clamps made of steel, attach firmly and secure the yoke. For thicker tabletops, a large 3M Micro-Suction Pad that produces 40lbs of tensile strength can be used for a clamp free solution. The Honeycomb Alpha Flight Controls Yoke & Switch Panel was designed and developed in California by pilots and aerospace engineers to ensure the most realistic flight simulation experience possible.

Reviews

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.

So far, works seamlessly with FS2020. Canât 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.

Q&A

Q: Does this yoke setup have any options for rudder pedals?

At this time there are no matching rudder pedals. Honeycomb is currently developing the pedals with expected release in 2020.

Q: How can I plug in my Logitech Rudder Pedals?

The pedals would connect directly to the computer on another USB port. This would also be a direct connection to the computer.

Q: Is this Honeycomb Alpha yoke compatible with FSX Steam edition?

Yes, it should be compatible with the Steam edition FSX.

Q: What is the return policy?

30 days from receipt. Unit must be in new, resellable condition for full credit.

Q: What is used for Throttle, Prop and Mixture controls with the Honeycomb Alpha?

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.

Q: How do you control the Throttle, Prop and Mixture before you buy the Honeycomb Bravo?

This yoke system does not have integrated throttle control. You could use another brand throttle control or the keyboard on the computer.
