Product Description

Complete your virtual pilot’s controller setup and take flight simulation reality to the next level with the Pro Flight Rudder Pedals. Control the rudder and toe brakes of your aircraft with your feet - just like real pilots. Adjustable, smooth action gives you optimum control and realism, and brings you even closer to the experience of flying a real aircraft.

From the Manufacturer

Smooth and Accurate Flight Sim Action

Pro Flight Rudder Pedals add another layer of realistic control to your flight simulation setup. Control the rudder and toe brakes of your aircraft with your feet – just like actual pilots.

Closer to Reality

These self-centering pedals with adjustable damping and a 4.5 feet (1.4 meter) USB connector cable are a perfect complement to the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke and Throttle Quadrant combo. There’s no better way to begin your flight sim experience than with Saitek, the market leader in high-performance flight simulation hardware.

Precise Rudder and Braking Control

The Rudder Pedals’ fluid motion enables accurate command over your aircraft, while differential braking provides independent control of the left and right toe brakes. The foot rests adjust to accommodate a wide range of sizes and include non-slip materials to help keep the pedals on the floor during virtual flight.


Adjustable Tension Dial

Select your own resistance to suit the way you fly. Apply just a little pressure to make the Rudder Pedals respond, or choose to exert more force. A simple twist is all it takes to get you dialed in.

Flight Simulation Software Compatibility

  • FSX - Flight Simulator X (PC only)
  • X-Plane 10 (PC and Mac)
  • Prepar3D 2.2 (PC only)
  • Most Other Flight Simulation, Combat Simulation, and Space Simulation Software

Fully Customizable to Meet Your Needs

Saitek’s Pro Flight Yoke is the foundation of an authentic flight sim experience and built to harmonize with many other Saitek flight simulation products. Saitek's range of Instrument Panels are modular and interchangeable by design, and can be situated one on top of another or side-by-side. Want the Altimeter above the Compass? Done. Want your Vertical Speed Indicator to the left of your Airborne Direction Finder? Go for it. It’s your choice. Easy-to-use mounting brackets provide the means to arrange your flight simulation setup in a configuration only limited by your imagination.

Construction of pedals is very good and well made.

The tension adjustment knob is also very nice, and it makes adjusting your pedals to fit your preference very easy.

I would highly recommend these to any flight simulation user.

After learning the "hard" way, the Rudder Pedals work Great! First (and very importantly) do NOT try to assign any functions to the pedals using your feet! After plugging in the USB connection put them on a flat surface and use your hands when moving the pedals to assign the right and left "Differential Brake" functions, then again using your hands, assign the "Rudder Axis" function.
Secondly, do not get overly exuburent when imputing the right or left "Rudder", if you hit the stops "firmly" the pedals will LOCK-UP! You will then have to remove 20 screws, and carefully re-align the pedals so they "unlock", then have to reinstall the 20 screws! Trust me, I've done it three times (greatly increasing my "expletive deleted" vocabulary in the process!) In spite of the above, they work well. I am a retired corporate pilot and use my flight sim to practice instrument procedures.

As someone new to flight simulators, these were the first rudder pedals I have ever used. My general impression is that they work well but their flimsy construction is disconcerting. As I haven't ever used CH pedals, it is difficult to assess what would be considered sturdy for a consumer product like this. However, the Saitek pedals feel as if they would be damaged by putting any amount of weight on the pedal surface. Not only is the plastic rather thin but the whole apparatus is extremely light. Saitek should have used some inexpensive ballast to rectify the latter problem.

Unfortunately, the light weight means they are not stable when used straight out of the box. With several through holes, the designers are probably suggesting the user mount the base to a heavier object. To use them on carpet, I took a different approach. In each of the eight holes, I mounted a set screw with a flat machined end. These were adjusted with a nut and large washer (for weight distribution) to allow a 3/8" elevation. The screws will penetrate the pile and resist any forward movement. To increase the effect, I attached eight, one pound lead ingots with double-sided tape to the base. This arrangement provides a very stable platform.

In my ten hours of Flight Simulator X, I haven't found any problems with pedals. However, I did observe some minor flutter on occasion when using the Saitek diagnostic software. It generally goes away after some movement.

Despite concerns over the construction, the pedals have some nice features. There is an adjustable tension knob in the center of the pedals. In addition, the pedal surface is adjustable for different shoe sizes.

In general, the Saitek Pro Flight Rudder pedals work well and look nice.

Allright. I heard about the sticking problem and true to my nature decided on the gool old pre-emptive strike to solve my problems. So I fabbed up a set of stopps. Screwed everything down to a chunk of 3/4" plywood, added a couple pieces of dowel rod with some rubber caps on the end to keep the pedals fended off from the wall and stable,(No movement at all across the floor) and voila...they work great. The plywood stiffens up the whole assembly with is a little flimsey for my comfort, and the stopps keep the pedals from traveling their full length of travel. Now hamfootedness is no problem. I idiot proofed the whole rig. The pedals cant get stuck if they can't get past 1/2" south of the sticking place. Got 5 images uploaded on the product information page that show how do do your own. The concept is pretty simple. Get a set of 3" L brackets. Drill the top hole out to 5/16. Put a rubber cap over the end of the carriage bolt, and bolt it to the L bracket. Attach the whole mess to an appropriatly cut piece of 3/4 plywood, and no sticking problem. These things work great. Much fun taxiing around now. Crosswind landings are doable. A twisty stick just doesnt provide the accuracy for precision flying. The CH pedals are just too damned buttugly to put under my rig, so I had to figure out how to make these Saitek pedals work. That, and these things have toe brakes! Something more to figure out how to SWAG. Too much fun for words.

I won a set of these at the International Flight Sim Convention in Denver this summer. They beat my CH USB Pro pedals hands down. These don't over draw the power on my USB hub like the CH did. I highly recommend them.

My Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals just came in today. I selected next day air shipping, and they arrived, on time, just as Amazon promised. I've always had hassles when ordering products online, but this time I was very pleased. Amazon stuck to their word, and got my stuff to me right away.

Upon receiving my package, I quickly opened it up. The rudder pedals look very nice, and quite similar to those in many real aircraft. Though they are made of plastic, they are very strong and seem to be well constructed. I set them down by the couch and put my feet on them. I had to adjust the foot rests to the largest setting because I have such large feet. They fit my feet well in this position, with only the very tips of my toes slightly over the edge. They feel very comfortable barefooted, in socks, and even with shoes. However, they do have a tendency to slide on the floor if not secured. This was no problem for me, because they are resting against my wall now, under my computer desk.

The feel of the pedals is VERY nice and quite smooth. They are certainly not unlike those in a real aircraft. I'm currently training for my private VFR license, and these will be very nice to practice with. The tension adjustment knob is also very nice, and it makes adjusting your pedals to fit your preference very easy. You can really fine tune these things to get just the right feel. The toe brake motion also feels very smooth and precise.

I decided to try them out with IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946, probably my favorite combat sim, first. I simply plugged in the pedals, installed the drivers, and was ready to go. Once IL-2 booted up, I went into the HOTAS control section and assigned the pedal axises. My first flight was a little shaky, as I was not used to using the pedals.
