This is by far the best Saitek/Mad Catz product I have ever purchased. The build quality of this unit is absolutely outstanding, it's quite heavy and clamps firmly to my computer desk and doesn't move. The machined TPM shafts have a very realistic feel to them with no wobble or play and they have just the perfect amount of smooth resistance with no sticky points, it feels very close to the real thing. The shafts and knob mounts are 100% metal and aluminum and the knob covers are hard plastic giving them the type of feel that is usually only found in much higher end flight simulator hardware. Great product, highly recommended: 10/10

Worked as expected smooth a silk. No problem with setup. Made use of FSUICP. Now my flying time is much more realistic.

HASH(0xa018b474) out of 5 stars If you even THINK that you might get into a Cessna 172 one day... Sept. 30 2012
By SameOldStory - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This was like a time machine to me.

I have to admit this was pretty low on my "Want" list. Most of the planes that I "fly" use a throttle quadrant. The ones that don't will respond to a throttle quadrant anyway, so why bother.

And then I started thinking of *MAYBE*, just maybe you understand, taking some flight lessons. And the places around here mostly use Cessna 172 for those lessons. So....

This is not like the other Saitek units except for the height and width of the front panel. The depth is almost 4 ¾ inches deep. Seven and a half inches measured from the end of the throttle knob to the back of the case. Ten and three quarters when the throttle is pulled all of the way out.

And it weighs enough to be listed as a blunt object at a murder scene. If you order one of these be on the lookout for a LARGE box.

Everything went fine attaching it to my desk (they even used 2 clamps on it). Win 7 64-bit recognized it without installing anything.

But the magic occurred the first time that I reached for the throttle (the black one on the far left). I suddenly became decades younger and far away from here.

I used to work at a small airport 40+ years ago. One of my jobs was to taxi the rental Cessna's to the rental office or back after a rental was returned. Along with cleaning and washing them : )

As I reached for that knob to pull it back to the low flow position it all came rushing back to me like nothing else ever has.

Believe me - If you EVER want to get in a light Cessna, even if it's just for a simple orientation flight, then this is just what you will want to practice with before you do so. If you want to use a flight simulator in the pursuit of a private pilot license, and the school uses Cessna 172s, then you NEED this.

REVIEW

This is great for those who want/like to fly something like a Cessna 172, Mooney, or a Beechcraft Bonanza. They, and some other light planes, have controls like these and it makes a world of difference when you use these.

The layout isn't like that in a Cessna with all of those switches of course, and the operation isn't exact (no twist), but it beats the heck out of using a throttle quadrant instead of pushing/pulling the knobs.

Highly recommended.

PROBLEMS

There is a BIG warning though - YOU MUST SET THIS UP CORRECTLY!

I don't know how some people can use it right out of the box. For an example - the "MIXTURE" knob was working the rudder; "PROP" was working the elevator!

And don't forget to un-check the "Auto Mixture" box in the FSX settings or the Mixture knob will do nothing! When you pull it back so far that the flow becomes too lean and the engines die THEN you know you have it right.

What's NOT a problem is the "Prop" knob. If pushing and pulling does nothing, your plane may not have variable-pitch propellers. Change your view to the front of the plane and watch the props WITHOUT the engines running.

About the switches - When you flip them down they make a contact. That contact can be assigned an action. Fine so far. BUT flipping it up doesn't make a contact and I don't think that FSX has any way of registering that a contact was broken.

In other words, if you assign the #1 button to the landing light it will turn it on when you flip it down. Flipping it up does NOTHING. No contact. Nice going Saitek. Flip it down and it makes contact again and the landing light goes out.

This can easily be corrected with FSUIPC. It's not rocket science. You just assign an action (such as "Lights Off") when that switch LOOSES contact.

In other words - BE SPECIFIC! Don't just assign "Lights" to the switch. Assign "Lights ON" to the down (contact) position and "Lights OFF" to the switch ***loosing contact*** when it's moved upward.

END NOTE
There are 4 rows of threaded mounting holes on the top where you could mount other panels, such as the Switch Panel, if you want. Alternately you could set a bluetooth keyboard such as IOGEAR Multi-Link Bluetooth Mini Keyboard) on top for those times when you need to use a keyboard in FSX, but you don't want a full sized one in the way.

HASH(0xa018b69c) out of 5 stars A great addition to a home cockpit May 26 2011
By simulator user - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Saitek TPM (throttle, propeller, mixture) works like the rest of their pro flight line. The levers move smoothly in and out with a nice amount of pressure. The only thing that is missing is the twist (screw) out/in of real Cessna type levers. Given the cost of this unit that was not expected. I am very happy with this addition to my home simulator.

HASH(0xa018b900) out of 5 stars Excellent For the money Aug. 2 2011
By Nick - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The TPM module does exactly what it claims to do and pretty darn well for what it costs.

A "authentic" constant speed TPM with throttle friction locks and vernier mixture and push lock prop lever will cost you upwards of $500. Could this have better designed, sure but you won't find anything that nearly exactly duplicates a Cessna throttle assembly for this price.

Pros
1. Feels like the real thing
2. Accurate lever travel
3. High quality construction
4. Full metal slides
5. Potentiometers high quality/ fine throttle adjustment possible
6. Mounts to other Saitek pro flight products

Cons
1. No friction adjustment
2. Toggle switches are only "on/off"
3. Knobs are not removable, so no carb heat
4. Doesn't work with ASA On Top

If you fly single engine aircraft either in real life or just the sim this will give you that little extra bit of realism your looking for.

HASH(0xa018bc30) out of 5 stars Works great, not poor quality at all March 26 2012
By S. Strandberg - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A few of the reviews have commented on the poor quality of the toggle switches. I find them to be just fine and sturdy feeling. They're not the BEST switches out there but they're certainly not taking anything away from the product. As far as the TPM goes, they all have a really nice feel, good resistance, and they are easy to make fine adjustments on without it jumping around at all. That may change after some months (I've only had it a few months now) but I couldn't be happier with it.

Quick edit: One review commented that it takes two toggles to do any action since they're not a normal 2 position switch. I find that they work fine if you set them up in FSUIPC to have an action on the press and an action on the release. You'll need registered FSUIPC for that, however, but you should really have that anyways.

HASH(0xa018be64) out of 5 stars So Disappointed - Throttle Doesn't Work for Half the Settings July 15 2011
By Stephen H. Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I originally wrote this as a response to someone else's review, but I think it should be easier for people to know about a problem with this controller.

First of all, I have several Saitek products, including the yoke, rudder pedals and throttle quadrant. I have never had a problem with any of them in FSX until I purchased the TPM.

Unfortunately, the TPM's throttle control doesn't work - it smoothly works from full idle to about halfway in, but then it "jumps" to full throttle in FSX. I've lost half my throttle control using the TPM (can't set a cruise RPM, can only go from descent RPM to full). I've downloaded all the latest drivers from Saitek, reset my FSX profile, and scoured the web. Unfortunately, it looks like the problem I'm having affects other users of the TPM as well ([...]), but the only "fix" is to delete a registry key, but the problem will come back.

I was really looking forward to getting this controller, but it's been a terrible disappointment - it's worthless. I'm going back to the throttle quadrant - it isn't realistic for the Cessna 172, but at least I can control the throttle smoothly through all the settings instead of "smooth from idle to halfway then...BANG! FULL RPM!" that the TPM has put me in.

So disappointed.
