Thrustmaster TPR Pedals you got em?

Recommended Posts

What is your opinion on it? I watch the reviews on youtube but only saw one with P3D. When I bought the warhog i was thinking what are you doing paying 500$ for a Hotas. You crazy? Well I guess I am. 5 months later I love how the warhog handles my Turbine duke in P3D. Please let me know if I should spend the 547$ I set aside to invest in these pedals.

I have seriously considered buying them but a quality yoke and throttles have a higher priority. I have tried them at a friend's and can vouch for their quality. Hall-effect sensors too so will last forever.

Just down to whether you are prepared to pay that sort of money.

I have them and they are rather good. I replaced my mfg crosswinds with them as the  are closer to ga style or 737 type pedals which suit me more. Build quality is excellent and they feel very good to use. Two things stand out that I have had to modify though. Firstly that brake pressure is not firm enough even on the hardest setting. Secondly, there is a centre dentect caused by the rocker and spring configuration not dissimilar to the internal spring mechanism on a saitek.

I freely admit I am looking for perfection and seem to be constantly disappointed, maybe I have expectations that are unreasonably high! Unlike yokes, I haven’t tried the high end pedal options out there from goflight, red bird, virtua fly, etc so not sure how they compare to those but now I have stiffened the brakes and tweaked the centering I am very happy with them.

I have them as well, and feel that they are worth every penny. The construction is first rate, and the action of the rudder and brakes axes are smooth. I especially like the response of the brakes. With my old CH pedals, I always had problems with the brakes “grabbing” And applying too much force, which can lead to wheel overheating and blown tires in advanced add-ons like the PMDG 747-8. 

With the TPL, braking force is directly proportional to how far the pedals are depressed, and the physical design makes it easy to control how much force is applied.

The Hall effect sensors are very reliable, with zero possibility of noise spikes.

I have very low expectations and am easily pleased so I'll be looking for a used set of saitek rudder pedals for a couple bucks any day now. 😁

I have them very much worth the money best pedals Ive had in over 20 years of simming. Very close to actual aircraft pedals

My only complaint is the pedals are uncomfortably close together. Wish they were a bit wider. Other then that good value for the price. I bought them to replace my CH pedals. If had it to do over I would just order another set of CH.

Are you referring to the Thrusmaster “TFlight” pedals, (TFRP) or the new TPR? The TFlight pedals do appear to be very close from photos I have seen, but the TPR pedals are 15 inches center-to-center. That’s one inch wider than the rudder pedals in a real CRJ-200! If they were any wider, I’d probably get a groin pull using them.

The TFRP pedals retail for about $90. The TPR costs over $500.

I was confused by your response because the OP question was about the TPR, which definitely aren’t closely spaced. 

TM makes good products, and I’m sure that even their less expensive models work well, but from photos I’ve seen of the TFRP, pedals, they do look a lot closer together than the CH model. I used the CH for years, and finally wore them out.

My fault. I should have paid closer attention before posting.
