I have the Thrustmaster Elite pedals and had them longer than I care to think about, at the same time I got the TM. FLCS/TQS to make a set. Much later I got the TM. Cougar but the elite pedals are heavy with a strong detent, the springs in them are strong enough that you can push your chair back without moving the pedal.

Even for ~ $300, I'd say the Crosswinds are great bang for the buck. They have all the features needed and are made for eternity plus you'll have the support in case something goes south. Before that I had the Simpeds, but the simple ones without toe brakes, which was the reason for me to get new ones. This really is something worth saving up for as you don't buy new ones every 2 or 3 years.

The only con that I've noticed is that you can't step on one pedal after the other without the whole thing flipping over, but that can be solved either by putting on both feet at the same time or attaching them to a simple (wooden) baseplate with some rubber feet or any other contraption that prevents the whole thing from sliding around.

They are relatively wide though, but IMHO this is more comfortable as well. They're ~52cm / 20.5" with the pedal plates tilted to the sides.

It's not too hard with Joystick Gremlin to set up a toe brake axis that you can use with a modifier in DCS. They are all metal, feel really well made and precise, and have fairly low resistance (but this can be changed with alternate springs).

Same here. Great pedals!

Default TPR Pendlum Rudder and F-14

Well I'm very pleased with the game accept I can not map my Thrustmaster TPR Pendulum Rudder System to the F-14. I have to use the coolie switch on my HOTAS WARTHOG for my rudder and brakes. Is there anyone out there with the same problem that maybe using the TPR Pendlum Rudder System. It's very disturbing to me that I have one of the most expensive rudder systems out there and I can't use it. Is there anyone that can help me? Thanks in advance.

I was using the Thrustmaster ones they were great for the price, very compact too. I managed to find a pair of Saitek Combat Rudder Pedals so am now using them. They're very sturdy and precise too.
If you're in the UK and interested OP my T Flight are on ebay atm.

Seems a little pricey for some cheap rudder pedals


Seriously I need rudder pedals and these look like the best option for my under desk space and price point.

If you are able to spend more than 150€ definitively crosswinds. I missed my Saiteks not a minute and the crosswinds will fullfill all needs perfectly.

I can vouch for the slaw pedals. Best by far, but you do need the damper. I hated my tm tpr pedals.

Thrustmaster TPR! I had mine delivered about three weeks ago as an upgrade from the Saiteks. Total game changer. My only regret is I didn't order them at release.

They're $500 on Amazon Prime and I have no issues using them in any module (including the F14).

If you're going to spend $500, what's a few hundred more to get the Slaw Viper RX pedals? Definitely worth the upgrade, coming from someone who has been on the Saitek, TM, Slaw path
