Patrick McFadden and the team at Iris Dynamics developed an affordable force feedback flight sim control yoke.
Force feedback yokes are about the realistic implementation of trim. Trim adjustments, weight and balance changes, speed, and aircraft configuration all effect the natural resting position of the yoke. When you use a traditional yoke which does not allow this “neutral” position to shift throughout various states of flight, an unacceptable level of realism is lost. This force feedback yoke gives a realistic feel to flight simulation.
The design is open architecture to allow users to customize and update every bit of the software and hardware.
