Saitek vs TM Rudder Pedals

Recommended Posts

I have the Saitek rudder pedals and find that I can't keep the Hog lined up on the runway during either take off or landing. It's been killing me. I couldn't figure it out. Then it dawned on me, due to the shape of the pedals and the height of my chair my toes are lightly applying the brakes (damnit man!). I tried the different angles but they didn't help.

 

I was looking at the TM pedals but don't feel like dropping $90 just to have the same problem.

 

I was hoping to get some feedback on 1) how to fix the Saiteks, or 2) if the TM pedals are better.

 

I use a desk chair which is completely in the up position so I can fit a buttkicker on the post. That leaves my legs at quite a steep angle and my feet in just the right position for an instructor to go "Oh hell no, get out of the seat now".

 

Thanks in advance.

It sounds like your best solution would be to elevate the pedals. The TMs might have a different angle but I agree that $90 to find out is a bit much.

Do you use a center stick? If so the TM is gonna be super uncomfortable. The pedals are rrally close together so you wil be sitting bow legged if the stick is in the center. Mine feels a little gritty and off center movements can be tricky due to some stiction. Mine came free with the Warthog when it was on sale which is why I have them. They are retired now since I just took delivery of my MFG crosswinds 2 days ago!

 

You can try to tune the brake axis and give it a bit of dead zone to alleviate the unintentional braking.

Yea, I use a TM Warthog and sit on the base. However, I have a shameful bit of info I didn't think of until about a half hour after I posted this...

 

I may be able to set a deadzone so those slight toe presses get ignored. I am so ashamed :). I haven't tried it but I would think it would work.
