IMG Reviews the CH Pro Throttle USB

Inside Mac Games has published a review by Tim Morgan of the Pro Throttle USB from CH Products:

Asking many casual gamers regarding the necessity of a separate throttle unit for flight sims will typically yield the answer, "What’s the point?" Most mid-range controllers today have a small built-in throttle control that offers acceptable control for the vast majority of casual gamers. Serious flight-sim enthusiasts, however, could not imagine easily controlling a virtual aircraft without a large, weighty, and versatile throttle unit.

Separate throttle units are more realistic and offer an additional platform on which controls, buttons, and hats can be mounted. Currently, only two advanced options are available for Macintosh gamers: the Saitek X36 and the CH Pro Throttle USB.

The CH Pro Throttle USB completes the ultra-high-end lineup from CH Products, and like the other advanced offerings, this throttle offers customers with a myriad of hats and other controls. This unmatched versatility can prove useful in increasingly complex flight sims, helping weekend air warriors exert the finest control over their complex aircraft without removing their hands from the crucial stick and throttle. In addition, the throttle carries the CH name, which to many Mac users means stability and outstanding compatibility. I took the time to examine if the CH Pro Throttle lives up to these lofty goals....
