  1. Here's my first video on X-Plane 11 beta 2 with AI aircraft landing and taking off in ~14 knot crosswinds. Default aircraft and airports: Zurich, London Gatwick and Heathrow.
  2. Just picked up these bad boys! First of all, a little background... A few years back, I had a set of CH Pedals. I used them for IL2 and WWIIOnline. I thought they were "OK", but too close together and a bit...clunky. Eventually I sold them and about 3 years ago I got heavily into DCS World (The A-10c to be specific) and I bought a set of Saitek Combat Rudder Pedals. I liked the size and width a lot better than the CH and they felt more substantial being metal pedals (went nice with my Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog ) but the downsides were they were freezing in the winter when flying in socks and again, I couldn't shake the feeling that they were...clunky. After about a year, I sold those too. Around six months ago, I got back into simming (FSX) and while I still had my Warthog, I didn't have a set of pedals. I had planned to buy another set of Saitek Combats or Saitek Cessnas (being that the only difference is the pedals themselves.) until I came across the MFG Crosswinds. Admittedly, they aren't cheap (they cost as much as the Warthog) but I started to see rave reviews about them on various forums. I sent Milan (the guy who makes them in Croatia) an email and he told me he was back ordered until March 2015 but I could put my name down for a preorder. I'm not normally the patient type, but I wanted a set of Rudder Pedals of the same quality as the Warthog and something that would last me just as long. After what seemed like an age of waiting, I got an email earlier this week to say my pedals were ready to be sent! I've literally just got back from picking the package up, assembled the pedals (a very easy and quick process) plugged them in, quick calibration and flew a circuit in the RealAir Turbine Duke V2. I have to say, they're absolutely amazing. The build quality is great, there's a nice weight to them (I did a bit of research and discovered they're made from a material called HPL) and there are a ton of options for adjusting the spring tension, angle of the pedals, foot brake tension. There's also an option to swap out the 'cam profile' which affects how much of a centre detent you experience. I opted for CAM5 which is basically zero centre detent. They're incredibly smooth and no noise. And the 'clunkiness' of my previous pedals is completely eliminated from the Crosswinds. Apologies for the crappy cell-phone pics. Milan mentioned a few months back that he may change the white colour to more of a grey but that he would create a small batch of pure white for anyone who wanted that option. So I got a set of the pure white ones...I just love that two tone white and black I can't think why.... ^_^ Feel free to ask me any questions!
