I can't recall if a Cessna 172 yoke has any significant vibration while on the ground or while flying. The last time I was in a 172 was back in the late '60s.

I don't want a force feedback yoke (can't afford it anyway), but my thought was to add a slight amount of vibration to my CH yoke.

I teach on a 172S, and I can't say I've ever noticed any form of vibration in the control column. The only vibrations I've ever noticed come from the wheels continuing to rotate after takeoff.

I personally use the elegant love model. A lot better than either of the forget-me-nots.

I've got a fair amount of 172 time... I guess you could tell if the engine was running or not just by touching the yoke, and sometimes during the runup the prop slipstream might beat on the tail surfaces a little, but 172 yoke vibration is really not noticeable. Not worth the trouble of duplicating in simulation, IMHO.
The control surfaces won't move the stick much in flight, either, unless they are behaving abnormally. I never experienced it myself, but there are many 172s placarded against deep forward slips with full flaps, because of the chance that disturbed airflow over the tail will cause the elevator to vibrate. Again, not worth the trouble... why anyone would bother to slip a 172 with even just 30 degrees of flaps out is beyond me.
A good subwoofer, or better still, a "butt kicker" sub transducer mounted to your seat will add all the vibration you need.
