They fit. Check this review: https://www.google.com/amp/s/arstech...per/%3Famp%3D1

I know you're from Cbus too, so fair warning, it's not $500 as listed...it's $693 when all is said and done after shipping, fees, etc.

Edit: Sorry for OT, on my phone and wasn't being cognizant of what thread I was in.

Thanks for that link. But each setup is different. And the only way they appear to fit in the Volair Sim pit is if they are placed way at the front of the foot area. My friend in Cincy has a VS pit and has his Crosswinds placed at the front also. So he has to have his seat further back that I do. And in that article you can see in the image that they don't even have the VS pit seat connected to the frame because it is so far away to make the pedals work.

I am always on the lookout for pedals that actually fit comfortably. I emailed the Crosswind manufacturer about this width issue and he is aware and hoped to have some way to make it fit someday.

I love the mold, the shapes design (and not simply going the easy route of releasing one 'block' compared to the competition. I love the ergonomy of the throttle grips along with the modular design.

The buttons choices though I'm not so sure, it seems the emphasis is a tad too much on huge push buttons. I understand the "VR complient" approach but at least a couple of switches would have been nice.

No comment on Europe market availability, I beleive they got the message already, it's just frustrating for us but hopefully VKB will get their product there in time, if not there are options now that'll benefit other manufacturers.

I could really use the VKB throttle now as my TM Throttle just went "tits-up" and I don't intend to spend $100 on a new main board.

Beta tester available here!!
