New Eclipse Yoke from CH Products

CH Products announced the Eclipse yoke for enthusiasts of PC-based flight simulations. It appears to be positioned as competition for the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System.

According to the press release, the new CH Eclipse yoke, which carries a suggested retail price of $249, includes:

  • Fully programmable fingertip paddles, ideal for flight and racing simulations
  • Programmable trim / scroll wheels with center push function
  • Two backlit push buttons and a third traditional push button
  • Two 8-way hat with rocker switch and trigger on both sides of handle
  • Configurable POV hat for either left or right hand use
  • Colored handles for throttle / prop / fuel mixture
  • Three color LED selector dial giving you a total of 240 programmable functions with CH Control Manager software
  • Six analog 10 bit axes for aileron, elevator, throttle, propeller pitch, fuel and rudder
  • New and improved industrial grade material / components; indestructible robust plastic, free floating shaft and clamp extenders for the thinnest of desks

CH Products says the new Eclipse is "scheduled for takeoff in time for the holidays."

I will post a review of the new yoke as soon as I’ve had a chance to evaluate one with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
