Thanks all for the recommendations. I should have added that toe brakes are part of the spec I would be looking for. Not to mention that the VKBs are rarely in stock.

Tinkickef, I'm afraid I don't have any relatives in Yorkshire and it's a bit far to drive. I would be happy to pay for P&P if you don't mind the hassle? Either way, thank you for the offer!

I know that this is a niche market so the range of options isn't great but there seems to be two categories: Cheap & Cheerful or Bloody Expensive and nothing in-between.

Well, if "toe brakes" are more important than precision, contactless sensor, sturdy construction, longevity, ... up do 200 you are limited to:

CH PRO Pedals
Saitek PRO Pedals
Thrustmaster TFRP

I suggest CH PRO - despise their obsolete 8 bits electronics, because have durable construction and (theoretically) you have chance in obtain replacement pot's (or at least used to be possible) - what is not possible case buy Thrustmaster or Saitek. Pot' will worm out and fail soon or latter.

I have a set of Crosswinds, CH Pro pedals and Saitek Combat Flite a pedals nd extensive experience with all of them. I have found the Saiteks the best overall mix of performance adjustable and price. They are on my main rig.

Unfortunately, those Saitek's aren't available anymore.

There really isn't any need for that sort of attitude. Toe brakes aren't more important than anything, they are simply a feature I would like on the product I want to buy.

The Crosswinds and the Thrustmaster TMR are too big to fit in the footwell on my desk. So I have to look for something smaller. So cost isn't the real issue here.

As it turns out, the Warthog may not work for me after all because my setup makes it rather cumbersome (the palm rest is 15cm up so my stick hand will be set very high on my desk which is very uncomfortable) so rudder pedals may also have to wait until I can figure out how to get it to work.

Toe brakes required... Avoid Saiteks then, they don't work in DCS for many people, me included. I once got a single side working for a brief moment despite hours of tinkering and researching various threads on the subject.

It's a known Saitek issue and a major factor in retiring them.

I've been using the Saitek Combat pedals for years and reasonably happy with them.

For the money, I really cannot fault it.

You must be jokng. Crosswinds are another dimension from plastic crap of CH and saitek. Not only in durability, feeling and precision but in customization also.

I'm curious as to why so many people are recommending the Saitek Combat Pro Pedals when they aren't available any more? And I've looked, a lot.
