Wow if he thinks they're a step up from Crosswinds that would be impressive...i can't imagine liking a set better than my MFG Crosswinds but if they are I'll be buying...Now I just want to hear about a new F-18 HOTAS.

Guess we'll see in 2 days but they certainly have bigger announcements if it's going to be the #summerofflight like they're claiming...need to a lot more than just a set of rudder pedals and a grip...they've been passed in quality by brands like VKB and Virpil by a long way...it would only make sense for them to launch a HOTAS to counter their growth...

Crosswind is only mid-range. Has he tried Baur or Slaw?

The footprint and design of these look great. 15 pounds of materials is nice as well.

This, mainly Slaws. If these come in at $500 these aren't going to be competing in the same space as Crosswinds.

Seems realistic. Slaws are $550 base (add another ~$150 for shipping and PayPal fees for US buyers), so a $500 pricetag would slide them in comfortably under that.

Slaws price go up? I paid 375 euros including shipping for my 109Cam Slaw pedals, which was $495 CAD total, around $390 USD. edit - time does fly, it was over 3 years ago I bought them.


I do agree though that they are a small step up from the VKB or MFG pedals I have, but that gap is very narrow IMO.


I'll be buying the TM pedals as well, I buy everything new in the hotas sphere anyway, but as others said, I'm more interested in the F18 stick and possible hotas news from TM than anything else. Hope they have something to show us in that area, what with the whole marketing "summer of flight" deal....

$550 for pedals, $110 for shipping, all in including PP fees is $693.



So yes, seems prices have gone up.

PayPal fees for $650 are not that high ($43). More like $20-$27.



Also your $100 shipping price seems high. But that greatly depends on location.


Maybe there was a PayPal currency conversion, too, in your case. They (PayPal) don't have the best exchange rates.

Yes, there were fx fees and the package was shipped to the US and weighed over 20 pounds.

Whether or not these were pass through rates or marked up, I don’t know. I wasn’t interested in nickel and dime negotiating with Slaw; first off it’s not worth my time, second if I had disagreed with the price...he could easily say “Ok I’ll give your pedals to the next guy in line”. I posted what my actual invoice was for, with line items, to inform the other users in this thread as a baseline. I doubt anyone cares about your opinion on the pricing structure so I’m not sure I understand the point of your post?

They look good - this gives me hope that Thrustmaster finally steps up their game and give these unreliable companies out there some competition with sticks and throttles.
