Edition: Pro Gamer Rudder Pedal Verified Purchase
In flight, it's normal practise to rest your heels on the floor and apply rudder using your toes, this is to reduce the heavy foot forces and make your controls more sensitive. Unfortunately there is a lip on the bottom of the pedals which forces you to rest your entire foot on the pedal, combined with a heavy centering action means it's difficult to make the minute rudder inputs necessary to hold heading, it's awkward for co-ordinated turns. It is good for heavy footwork stuff, engine failures on multis, directional control on take off and also works well as a procedural trainer.

Just to clarify, light a/c are flown with rudder because the low momentum and short arm moment rudder give good responses. On heavies rudder isn't used because of sweep, oscillatory stability and cause it shakes the plane.

These pedals add fantastic realism to my FSX flight simulator. I fly PMDGs wonderful, 737 NGX, 777 200 and the Queen of the Sky's 747. I bought the pedals as well as the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System at the same time, see my review on the Yoke. They installed without any fuss whatsoever as I use Windows 7 Ultimate. They also worked straight away on all my planes including the helicopters.

They give you Velcro to help keep them from sliding when you are using them and it works just great. You can also adjust the tension of the pedals to give a more realistic feel when steering the plane when taxiing. I have seen other pedals in other places and they are poor imitations of these pedals. I think they are just fantastic and I would never go back to button rudder control on a Joystick. Hope this helps you to decide.

To play any flight sim well, you need good control methods. While the rudder is often overlooked as an essential flight control, it is vital for coordinated controls to achieve good turns and also for spin correction.

These rudder pedals are well constructed, heaver than expected and came in a very large box.

In use, it is more or less plug and play and the single CD of drivers allows you to load the driver software. Optionally it is possible to load the tools to create custom controls in other applications. The built-in USB cable isn't that long, but this can be extended via third party cables if required. Feedback is positive and the level of force required to turn can be easily adjusted. Each foot pedal has a "pitch forward" capability, presumably for motor-vehicle gaming. It was not possible to find a way to lock-off this pitch movement.

The only minor niggle is the small amount of play in the centre position. At its most sensitive level, this will turn a simulated glider or similar high performance aircraft. However this is minor and may not be important in casual use.

The customised control software has not been used so is not reviewed here.

A good product (albeit not cheap), so overall a four out of five only because it was not possible to lock-off the "foot pitch" movement.

Have been using these for three months now, predominantly on Aces High 2.

Sturdy construction is impressive, good quality plastics, solid fixing to keep them solidly mounted with long velcro strips and/or screws.

The toe brakes are excellent and accurate, the rudders however are not positive enough, even in stockined feet, whatever the tension setting, it is easy to leave a degree of rudder applied, causing problems with accuracy and speed. The centreing return spring is too weak and the centre feel is ambiguous.

I bought these for use in DCS World and IL2 1946. They work fine, apart from 1 tiny thing...

As a gamer who doesn't have a large enough room to leave equipment setup permanently these pedals have 1 flaw - they lack any proper floor grips. I have attached one half of the supplied velcro strips and they do offer some friction on my carpet, but as I'm not willing to stick the other half of the velcro to my carpet I have had to attach the extensions that form the foot rests to the other ends of the pedal base (reverse of what is pictured) so that the pedals push up against my TV stand and still leave room for them to move properly.

The pedals base does have holes to put screws through, to secure to a floor (or perhaps some other heavy base object) but that's of no use to someone such as myself who can't leave equipment setup permanently.

I heard my Dad mention that he had an issue with rudder control on his flight simulators, so he would need to get some pedals when he had the money. I knew that he already owned some Saitek kit, a throttle control and joystick, so I found this to be the best option.

There was a Pro version with metal pedals, but they were a little more expensive, but didn't really have many additional features.

Needless to say that this has been an excellent choice. He was like a kid on Xmas day, lol. Since then I've seen him spending hours playing his flight sims, and he has even gone and bought a head-tracker to finish off his setup now.

No issues at all apart from the initial wrapping of the present, but I think that's more of a bloke thing.
