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.

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.

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.

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.

I've been a sim pilot since the days of ATF in the eighties, and in the real world all my life.

The first pair jammed/locked up after 8-10 hours use. The second pair jammed/locked up after 5-6 hours use. The third pair jammed/locked up after only a single hour of use. I feel these pedals are not made of the right materials to make them a practical, viable product. My advice is, don't waste your money.

Suprisingly sturdy, these pedals are rather good value for money. I wouldn't call them essential for the casual flyer, but they do add depth and "immersion" to flying. They do slip on carpet, my solution? A $5 transparent bath mat from Family Dollar. Works spectacularly well.

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.
