VKB-SIM T-RUDDER PEDALS MK.IV


I cannot wait to get my greedy little fingers on these rudder pedals. Just ordered yesterday from the Europe store, they have been out of stock for quite a while but I didn't see any other product that was as discreet and professional, all other rudder pedals looked massive, like hard work to use, where these look really tight and smooth. I personally couldn't care about toe breaks; I have it shift stated on the stick so no big deal. I had the Saitek Pro Flight and they wear plastic, large and felt like a toy.

I hope these rudder pedals turn out to be as slick as they look. Any simmers out there have them and whats your thoughts?

I have the same mark 4 since a year or two ago, its perfect so far. Precise, sturdy. Love it that you are not pushing them so theres no need to attach it to the floor.

The KA-50, Mi-8 and Huey. I have no complaints, really. Before this I had Saitek rudders but you cannot compare the two.

They are really good, you can be very precise with them (i use curves) and they are very comfortable, no worries about being too close together.

I don't keep my feet on them unless I'm about to need to use rudder for the most part and sometimes I do.

I find myself just pushing them up and down for the hell of it even when not in a flight sim.

Really a nice product and not overly expensive, also I got mine through amazon in the US, so shipping was even free.

You won't miss toe brakes and for helis and certain planes with a handbrake it doesn't matter anyway.

The 109 and 190 will need you to bind something for left and right brake though, I use a hat on the joystick for left and right braking.

I love my VKB Mk IV pedals. You step down on the pedal using your ankle instead of pushing with your entire leg and hip. Long flights are no problem as you can move your feet around to get comfortable then readily put them back into position without hunting for cups for your heels.
Best feature is that you don't need to have your knees close together. The pedals measure 16" (4.6 cm) wide and allow you to space your feet apart without being restricted to one setting from the factory as with all other makes.
I've not needed to adjust the height or tension from taking them out of the box. Plugged them in and they were ready to use. Presto.
BTW - Mine were shipped DHL Air Express from Hong Kong and arrived on the east coast of US 3 days later as their standard method.

Great stuff everyone, sounds very positive. I think I made the right choice waiting for them to come back in stock, even though it took months. Like the sound of them being well spaced too.

I ordered the pedals as well. However, I'm a bit concerned regarding one thing.

In the shop it says "In stock", as you can clearly read at the top of the page:
https://flightsimcontrols.com/produc...-pedals-mk-iv/

However, today they've posted a news item that they aren't ready to be shipped yet and that it's only the container that arrived.
Estimated shipping date is now the 7th of May.

I mean come on … how hard is it to properly set up your shop.
If an item is not in stock than the page should very clearly state so and not pretend that it is in stock.
Should say something like "Shipping within 2 weeks".

Nah, I'll wait until May, just think they should really work on their communication and setup.
