Advice needed on rudder pedals.

Recommended Posts

Wonder if I can poll you folks on a quandry I have.I have Thrustmaster F22 stick and F16 Throttle HOTAS set uphere, which I have upgraded to digital with Bob Churchs excellentEPROM chips. Fantastic stuff. (Dont see a need to go to Cougaryet.) However, my son is about to start real flight trainingand I dont have rudder pedals. My sims have historically all beencombat sims and over about 400 knots in most fast jets the ruddersnot an issue.However in General aviation, if you want to really use FS for something serious, you need rudders. What kind should I buythats compatible with my digital setup as noted above? (these arenot USB...they use regular game ports.)Eric

I'm still using some Thrustmaster pedals along with a Saitek X45 joystick. But regardless of brand, I do believe that pedals are essential for realism with general aviation aircraft. The use of twist controls, rocker switches, & keyboards takes away the "feel" as well as leading to over sensitivity. Some FS2002 aircraft as well as adddons, CFS2, & IL-2 have a particually good & controllable "feel" to them as you roll down the runway & climbout................ and only experienced with pedals!!L.Adamson
