Well you are going to have to put your feet up on something.

If that works as good looks then it's a winner.
Go on how much?

They are about £250.
Give or take vat and shipping.

So really not that terrible.
I am tempted as well, have been for a while.

Ok, I'm a little surprised it seems I'm the one who recognise them on the spot :P

These are the fabled\fan build now proper company. MFG crosswind rudder pedals.
http://mfg.simundza.com/products
They only make so many it seems so next slot seems to be mid July...

And it does happen that I just now, opened my CH pedals, and broke my right toe brake..
Although I don't actually use those for anything in ED, mostly because using the toe brakes hurt...

Hmm does the Crosswind suit a size 13 foot ?
I really shouldn't, I really need to buy a couch, which costs about as much as these...
The CH pedals are a tad small.

Shoot Milan an email....

Ask if the pedals are big foot compatible........

:D

Pedals are 290mm long......

But only 120mm wide..

I actually hit the button...

Doesn't really matter.
They look far more comfortable than the CH pedals and far more adjustable.
I have seen all kinds of mounting solutions for these.
But if you plop them flat on the ground like most have to.
Using the toe brakes for anything, well my ankles certainly don't bend that way.

Just adjust them to be more upright........

I'm gonna experiment with left and right thrust on the toe brakes and see what happens with that......

Shame thrust is not split in ED like nose/tail.......That would make yaw interesting.........


What did you go with colour wise and did you order the soft spring option?

I did just in case I give Black Shark another go in DCS......

Decided to take the plunge as my Saiteks combats are currently operating on my wifes hairband as the spring snapped a while ago.....

Replaced thrice so far......Elastic bands and then O rings then hairbands...... :roll:

Plus had them apart about 3 times to clear all the shit out that accumulates in the base and then regrease the runners.....

Looks like I may have been lucky.....My shipping date is May 28th........But that might change.....

Will be interesting to see what we think about them...........
