I wouldn't write off the rudder pedals so quickly, Joe. It opens up a whole new experience for your flight sim. In my case, I wouldn't fly without them. I have The USB yoke and analog pedals. And yes, I have to keep a joystick plugged into them to be recognized. But it's a small bother(?) as far as I'm concerned. If I'm not using the joystick, it just sits under my desk. But then it is already hooked up when I want to fly helicopters. I'd give it a chance if I were you. If you don't like it after the fact, then make a decision.Regards,Rick

Have you tried installing them using the generic 2 axis joystick drivers? I don't know if this will work because I don't have pedals, but the USB FS Yoke will work with analogue joysticks. I use my trusty old CH Flightstick as a "rudder stick."

I have my old gameport version of the yoke hooked up, with the analog pedals. (I keep this yoke under the desk). This setup, in combination with a gameport to USB converter, gives me working toe brakes off the old analog pedals. I also have the USB yoke hooked up, which, of course is the one I use. If I had more desktop available, I could put the old yoke up, and have a co-pilot. Unfortunately, no room.Darrell

You might want to try the analog drivers on the CH site (CHANLG08.EXE). They'll let the pedals (assuming they're Pro Pedals) run standalone by plugging the AuxPort connector into the Joystick connector. You won't need the extra yoke, and the toe brakes will be available.- BobThe StickWorkshttp://www.stickworks.com

Hey Bob that's the best news I've heard in a while. I've been using the CH USB Yoke along with the analog CH Pro Pedals connected to a second joystick for some time now, and had resigned myself to never experiencing the toe brakes. However, I did use the 2 buttons on the joystick for engaging reverse thrust and deploying speed brakes after landing. Because of this I would like to keep my current configuration without plugging the aux connector into the joystick connector. Will the toe brakes work anyway after installing the drivers? How do I configure them in winMe and FS2K2?While I write this I'm trying to d/l the chanlg08 drivers from the CH homepage but it doesn't seem to work. Do you know of an alternate site?Thanks,Mauricio
