Default F-14 & rudder pedals

So after watching the latest videos on the F-14 posted by MagzTV amongst others, I have come to the conclusion that the F-14 is going to be a bit more rudder dependant than I initially anticipated. Thus the all important question now becomes:

What are the best BANG for the BUCK pedals out there atm?, and preferably ones that don't take up too much space (the sole reason I haven't had pedals for a while now)

I'm sure the answers to this question will be most useful to a lot of upcoming cat drivers out there

if space is your main concern I would suggest the VKB pedals, they are very compact as pedals go. You won't have toe brakes, so you'd have to map a braking button on your HOTAS. However, the precision and feel is superb for the price and they will last for an eternity as the design is very simple and it's a quality product.

I like my Thrustmaster TFRP.
Not expensive, precise and compact.

I have them, too and they are my first pedals.
I've used them for only some hours and so far they are satisfying to me:
I keep their rubber pads clean and they don't slip when I press/push the pedals,
they are precise and accurate,
they slide smoothly.
They are included in my FCS Flight Pack with throttle and stick. Mine are connected to the TWCS throttle via an RJ12 cable and the throttle is connected to the computer via USB, but I've seen an unboxing video in which they show an included RJ12→USB adapter for the pedals bought independently.

VKB pedals if you don't need toe brakes. MFG Crosswinds if you prefer to have them.

Depends on what, exactly, you're looking for.

I use these: http://www.saitek.com/uk/blog/index.php/pro-flight-com

They're heavy, but have held up very well after years of use.

MFG Crosswinds, if you look for bang for the bucks.

I have a pair and like them. They aren't small though, so might not work for the OP.

There is an optional adjustment olate, that allows to put the pedals closer together.
