After all, why invest my dollars in a rudder pedal when I can just as easily maneuver the aircraft in the ground and in the air with a yoke?
Why? Because "real" aircraft aren't maneuvered on the ground like a car using a yoke as a defacto steering wheel. Real pilots maneuver their aircraft with their feet while taxing on the ground. And even though they do handle turns in the air using their hand on the joystick or yoke, their feet are very much in the picture operating the rudder during turns and for crabbing the aircraft.
If I am to be a "true" sim pilot, then it follows that I should have something under my feet. And if I have to have something under my feet, I can't think of any better product than the Saitek Pro Flight Combat Rudder Pedals.
Now, before anything else I have say the following. Don't let the word "combat" in the product's name throw you. These rudders work just as well on a Cessna, a Beech or a Boeing than they do on a F16 or Warthog. I am not a combat fan. I only fly commercial and private aircraft in my flight sims. I find the Saitek Pro Flight Combat Rudder Pedals perfectly acceptable for tooling around in non-combat aircraft. (I am confident that they work equally well in your fighter aircraft if that is your thing.)
The quality of the Saitek Pro Flight Combat Rudder Pedals is outstanding. From the metal pedals (can you believe using metal in a sim product?Read more ›
He did says that they're not just like airplane rudders--but they're awesome for computer rudders. He likes how you can lean your foot against the rudders and then move your foot up to press the break (says that's a realism improvement over game pedals that make you put your whole foot on the pedal). He said they do work just like he would expect them to and that they would add to his game experience (I think he was hinting here).
We both agreed that they slip way too easily on carpet. I stick something heavy behind the pedals and the problem is solved.
Other than that, they just work. I didn't even need to install a driver. They're super sturdy, and pretty heavy!
I used these pedals in windows 7 ultimate 64 bit in flight simulator x.
After installing, calibration was a little tricky due to a minor problem with the brake pedals being a bit stiff (see below). Once I fixed that, it was a breeze. After getting them calibrated in Win7, I went into my favorite flight sim and calibrated them in-game. I could tell immediately that these are much more accurate than my old CH Pro pedals, and more comfortable to use as well. I am going to have to re-learn to fly a bit and get used to them, the difference is substantial! They also feel very firm underfoot. They do slide easily on the carpet in my office, but I solved this with a couple of bag weights placed behind them on the floor, the same solution I used on my old pedals which did not weigh as much or feel as substantial as these. The bottom has rubber pads, which should work well on tile or hardwood floors, and some industrial grade Velcro strips are provided which I would think would be more for cockpit builders. (At least I can be sure I would be in the doghouse with my wife if I was mounting the strips on the floor, don't know about your situation :D )
A few tips:
Out of the box, I found the brake pedals to be a little stiff, with one not wanting to return back completely. This was easily fixed by using the adjusting wrench (provided, look under the extension plate) to ease the screws on the sides a little bit. They should be a snug, but not tight fit. I also took the opportunity to adjust the angle a bit more to my liking.Read more ›
