Description

The Left set of (Trim) switches are so large one can not reach the pov switch with the thumb when left hand is properly placed on the yoke. Pros: Quality and physical robustness, Smooth and responsive, calibratable, Additional Control Switches, and feels real. The left and right handles feature 13 programmable buttons and switches for fully customizable flight.

HoneyComb Yoke with switch panel and Honeycomb Throttle Quadrants are a great introduction into Flight Simulation.The flat top allows third-party controllers to be mounted with ease, such as Logitech’s Switch Panel. Most flying takes place with the yoke in the centre position and here the controls are fluid and smooth with no self-centring forces, so you have very precise control over the aircraft. That in fact – together with the spring-loaded ignition switch – was the main reason for switch in my case. The distinctive front grill with the honeycomb pattern in the Alpha yoke has also been redesigned in this new iteration of the product. Before getting into more details about the Alpha Flight Controls XPC, it’s important to highlight the differences between this new yoke and its previous iterations.

What makes it a five star is that it does just what it is supposed to do AND it has a level of quality unsurpassed from what I could find. but it does have Xbox compatibility, improved sensors, and that new design with the spring-loaded ignition. The pitch trim buttons are designed well for trimming down, but are a bit clumsy to trim up by a thumb.We have included some photos of the Honeycombe Alpha Yoke integrated with some of our Complete Flight Consoles like our FSTD1 which provides a high quality and high fidelity training or entertainment system for the serious enthusiast who wants the best in the market place. The back of the Alpha Flight Controls XPC features a couple of self-explanatory USB-C ports, a button to change the LED lights, and a switch to change between PC and Xbox modes. When you use the clamps, you could use it also in combination with the 3M Micro-Suction, but there’s actually no need for. With this base securely mounted, you can then slide the yoke onto the base and tighten a couple of big plastic screws in the back to push everything together.

To get around this I mapped the right lower rocker switch to do the left and right looks and just ignore the pov hat switch. So when Honeycomb’s CEO, Nicki Repenning, approached us with the exciting news that the development of the upgraded Alpha XPC yoke was complete, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to find out more. The Honeycomb Alpha Flight Controls is the most advanced flight simulation system available to simmers, flight students and pilots for setup at home and featuring a complete backlit switch panel and ignition switch. A key difference between it and the cheaper Logitech one is that there is no “notch” for the neutral pitch control position which does make a difference in trimming etc.

Not that they are of bad quality, not at all, but the sturdy build of the yoke itself and its supporting structure contrast a little with some wobbliness in the white buttons on top of the handles. XPLANE11 does work with LINUX but make sure you can load linux drivers for your video card AND get use flight controls that have LINUX drivers as well. A built-in switch panel includes controls for the battery master, alternator, avionics and external lighting.

There is only a small 'sweet spot' where the switch operates correctly, so if you want to quickly look left and right from the flight deck of MSFS 2020, your view can jump all over the place as the switch goes in and out of the sweet spot.It was designed to fulfil the requirements of both flight simulation users and student or full-time pilots.
