Default Detail about Gazelle pedals question

Hey guys, I'm curious about the strange add on lower part on the anti-torque pedals in the Gazelle.

I would assume they are just for comfort or something but the way they are attached to the standard type upper part seems odd.

Anyone know anything about them?

Trip

AFAIK yes. Just another philosophy of design.

If we are talking about the same thing, I think the lower part are the actual pedals, i.e. where you feet go. The upper part is just a bar from which the pedals hang. The Gazelle pedals are a hang down, So you fit your feet in between the upper and lower bars like a horse stirrup.

EDIT: I should point out that I have the pilots off, so have never actually seen how the foot/pedal placement is animated. I thus may be totally wrong about the above!

I think the pilot avatar uses the top part but I'll check that out thanks.

I have decided I think the attachment looks odd is it is a spring tab to allow some movement for comfort.

Ok, completely off with my "stirrup" hypothesis, as can be seen by careful watching of "Flying Soldiers", e.g.:

Maybe they're "air brakes?" :-D

Just a general design I believe, and 2-position adjustable for pilot comfort.

Hi Trip,
i asked about the pedals at the Gazelle Fly-In, the RAF pilot told me they are for short people.
