    Hello,

    About the Logitech G System Pro Flight Yoke, my first impressions are positive.

    It's night and day compared to the joystick.

    I can say that it is easier, more precise, more comfortable, all in all better...

    well I'm going to install the rudder

    See you soon

    One word...Great.

    As I said before, I was a bit worried when I saw comments from people who had problems with recognition and settings.

    I don't know if I'm lucky, but after installing and following the Logitech installation procedures, everything is correctly recognized and playable by default.

    I refined the settings by watching the videos of "Huddison" on youtube, thanks to him.

    I've done a few practice flights and taxiing to get used to it, and I can say that you get used to it quickly, it's so easy now compared to my old joystick.

    There are several very affordable accessories you can add to the yoke

    This one is tempting me.

    Hello,

    Back to my family’s ancestral region which dates back to the French Revolution (before that we have no documents) with a departure from ‘‘l’Aérodrome de Granville’’ in the direction of the city of Saint-Malo and which makes us go along ‘‘Les Iles Chausey’’

    The Chausey Islands are behind us and we turn left towards… the Remparts of Saint-Malo, the Grand-Bé, etc… everything is there.

    Last night I flew from LFRS - Nantes Atlantique Airport to LFEY - L'Île-d'Yeu Aerodrome with a detour to LFRE - La Baule Airport

    With a SoFly Weather Preset Pro - Orbx for the weather, and zero visibility with rain, and ice from 6900 feet and -5 degrees, I quickly descended to around 3200 feet so that the ice would melt and not crush me.

    Nothing to see outside but nice flight in RNAV and a safe approach despite the weather

    Rain... ice... a crappy weather... and I liked it

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I start the approach to the airfield and get the G/S (Glide/Slope)

    [​IMG]



    We begin to distinguish the island

    [​IMG]

    I leave the RNAV approach as late as possible before taking the controls in manual

    [​IMG]

    Not unhappy to have arrived

    See you soon
