I have never flown a plane with a side stick yoke. I have flown standard stick and standard yoke but never a side control yoke. There are lots of planes from a commercial airliner to experimental with a side control yoke. I can't see the side yoke being comfortable hand flying for hours at a time. With a standard stick or yoke I can use either hand, side control yoke it's a one handed deal. Please fill in the blanks for me. Might be OK if you fly by auto pilot and only fly manually for a short period, but not hours on end.
