    It is hard to say what the quality will really be like given the attractive price point 0f US $169, but this new flight yoke by Honey Comb Aeronautical showed off at CES 2017 certainly looks the part.

    Between the Yoke and Switch Panel there four buttons, four two-way switches & one, eight-way hat switch, offering an avionics switch panel with master, alternator, avionics and light switches. Interestingly it is designed to sit on rather than clamp to a desk: https://pcflight.net/ces-2017-brand-new-yoke-system-announced/

    Looks really good, It seems we have all the important switches and buttons,180° of rotation each side.
    Clamp free attachment and loads of tiny suction cups???:thinkYou can imagine that in bad weather, it stays in the worst moment in your hands

    I can't go back to Yokes now.

    I'm taught my lefty brain to use a HOTAS system and now everything else seems alien :(
