Thumbs up My BAUR BRD-F3 Rudder Pedals arrived today. Unboxing Pics!

After only 10 days of shipping from Sochi/Russia to the US, they finally arrived in an admittedly somewhat tattered blue box. I've ordered the set with an additional pair of pedals, which are inspired by the actual Su-35 rudder pedals. The standard ones are based on the WWII German rudder pedals.

The pedal base comes pre-assembled, except the pedals themselves not being attached - which shouldn't be a problem at all: There are four screws that mount the pedals to the toe-brake assembly, and two screws to mount the pedals/toe-brake assembly to the rudder base itself.

There weren't any instructions included in the package, but BAUR has a dedicated forum thread here (I let google auto-translate these pages), There are also various other posts on the subject, and BAUR himself is extremely helpful and forthcoming via email, too!

Here are some unboxing pics; I will follow up with some more pics after I got the desired pedals on.

The Box from Russia:


Everything is wrapped tight in bubble wrap:


The box' content - securely packaged:



The pedal base - fully assembled:



Where there's a box - there's a cat:



Pedal base and toe-brake assembly:



Toe-brake assembly details - there's a contact-less magnetic sensor in that little gray box:



Toe-brake springs offer realistic resistance:



The overall content of the shipment, all laid out:



Accessories - extra centering spring, USB cable, plates to mount the pedals in a slanted fashion, instead of the straight upward way.



The Su-35 inspired set:


The WWII Germany inspired set:


Closeup of the pedal base with BRD logo and centering spring:


The dual cam configuration:

Assembled with the default German-style pedals - for now; later I'd like to try the modern ones as well.



Comparison with VKB T-Rudder MkIII; don't get me wrong - I still love my T-Rudder set, but man, those BAURs are something else - and, of course, have toe-brakes!





My dilemma - the BRD pedals do not fit into my Obutto Ozone. Guess it's time to remove the monitor stand, wall-mount the monitor, place the BRDs on the floor, and scootch the seat closer to the wall to accommodate the bigger pedal set!

What a nightmare! What have they done with my box! I understand - the only way to avoid it - send in a wooden box as a weapon !!!
I'm sad. Mail does not accept other special box. Or send two boxes as I suggested.
Maybe it would be better if we make the English translation of my instructions for assembly? In Russia, I sell pedal disassembled.

Hi Baur,

even though the box looked a little messed up, all the parts were protected by your use of plenty of bubble wrap!

So, everything is good!

And yes, maybe some English translation for exchanging the plates for slanted vs non-slanted pedal mounting would be good.
Adding the pedals themselves is not so bad, once you remove the springs from the toe-brake assembly (thanks Cyph3r for pointing that out!).

This Obutto need some welder work.

BTW - You guys should suggest for Obutto maker add support for width flight sim pedals.

Well, the newer (and more expensive) Obutto R3volution has a wider pedal area based on user feedback. But I didn't want to spend about twice as much money for that. So, some customization on my part is needed...
