Love it! - Thursday, March 16, 2017I bought this about a year ago, and think it's a good medium price option for a realistic throttle quadtrent. One thing that does dissapiont me is that the unit is not at the 20° offset the real thing is at. I know GoFlight offers an engin start tilt unit for this but I would like to see a plain old stand be made for it. I did create my own stand and other than that this unit is quite the keeper.
Can't recommend this unit - Saturday, November 5, 2016I don't know what it is about this unit but I simply don't like it. I've tried to like it. I bought it several years ago, got it set up and simply didn't like anything about it. The look, the feel, the quality, anything! I returned it. Some time later, I decided to give it another try. I unboxed it, set it up on my sim desk and didn't even connect it to my sim machine. I moved all the levers and realized that all my previous issues with this unit were still valid.
This is the only GF unit design that I would like to see GF abandon in favor of a clean sheet design. For the $600 that GF is asking for this unit, I'd really like to see levers with smoother action and Hall sensors, beefier buttons for the TOGA and AT DISC switches, tactile detents for flap positions and speed brake positions, more realistic reverser levers, AND possibly engine start levers (switches to keep costs down would suffice). There are units available from other manufacturers that more closely match all my requirements above. However, they cost more than double what the GF unit costs and that's simply more than I'm willing to spend.
I hate to come down so hard on this unit in my review, but Id really like to see GF come up with a better design.

Best throttle quadrant for the price range - Monday, June 20, 2016GoFlight never ceases to amaze in the quality they put into their products. This is a nice replica of the 737 throttle quadrant and really adds to the simming experience when you come in to land and get to pull the reverse thrust. You go any cheaper than this and you're gonna have a cheap plastic throttle quadrant that looks and feels cheap. Any higher than this and you'll be spending thousands of dollars. So I consider this product the happy medium and I've had it for years now without ever having an issue.
