Add realistic control to your flight simulation setup with Saitek's Pro Flight Rudder Pedals. Control the rudder and toe brakes of your aircraft with your feet - - just like real pilots do. Designed to work in conjunction with the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System, these self-centering USB-powered rudders add an extra layer of precision to the aircraft control all pilots require.
The smooth, precise motion of the Rudder Pedals enables accurate command over your aircraft, while differential braking provides independent control of the left and right toe brakes.
Choose your own resistance to suit the way you fly. Apply just a little pressure to make the Rudder Pedals respond, or choose to exert more force; a simple twist is all it takes to get you dialed in.
Modular and interchangeable, Saitek's range of Instrument Panels can be situated one on top of another or side-by-side. Want the Multi Panel above the Radio Panel? Done. Want your Switch Panel to the left of your Yoke? Go for it. Easy-to-use mounting brackets provide the means to arrange your flight simulation setup in a configuration only limited by your imagination.
With Saitek's Pro Flight Yoke System, the configuration of your dreams can become reality. From just a Yoke and a Throttle Quadrant, easily add Rudder Pedals and a multitude of Switch, Navigation, and Instrument Panels to fully customize your flight simulator. Commercial or private, seasoned or novice, you have the ability to equip your flight simulation setup with all the essentials needed to vastly improve your skill set and muscle memory.

solid pedals, not top of the line but work just fine.
got mine late last year for 9K, Amazon pricing as usual is all over the place, more than 20k is not worth it.

The pedals work well and seem precise in movement vs game translation. Takes some time to get your feet coordination if you've been using a twist joystick for rudder like myself but the independent toe brakes are what really adds to the experience in flight sims.
The base is very light and easily slides away from your legs even on carpet with the tension return spring set to its lightest. I used a heavy box of wall tiles behind mine to keep from pushing them back. You could put them against a wall or use the provided mounting holes to attach them to some plywood or other type of heavy base using bolts as carpet cleats or soft rubber pads for hardwood and tile. The pedals did come with 2 strips of self sticking velcro, but I'm not putting anything sticky on my hardwood floor. While the motion seems precise in game, the feel you get on your feet when rotating the pedals feels like plastic sliding on plastic. Some metal friction sliders or bearing rollers would have made a much more realistic feel but you get what you pay for I suppose. Doesn't take away from usability, it's just a feel thing. Also the lack of a center detent makes you take your feet off of them to ensure they are spring centered when flying. Not a big deal unless you are trimming rudder only to find out you been holding some rudder input while you were trying to trim, which you will be doing constantly on high torque prop driven aircraft or flying with asymmetric external fuel and weapon loads. Finally, Saitek didn't put profits over convenience when they included a 4 ft cord (sarcasm there). The cord is stupid short, my $15 keyboard came with a longer 6 ft cord. So unless your PC is on the floor or very close to the pedals you will be needing a USB extension cable or a hub.
As usual Amazon delivers on shipping. I used free 5-7 day shipping and they were at my doorstep in 2 business days, ordered late on a Thursday and arrived Monday morning, in a completely over-sized box in a box configuration. So over-sized they could have put 3 sets of pedals in the outer box. Not really a complaint just a little inconvenient to deal with the refuse, although if it keeps from returning products due to poor shipper handling then keep the big boxes coming. The product packaging seemed sufficient to handle shipping stress in my opinion though as long as the UPS guys were not playing soccer with the packages.
It needs to be shoved up against a wall, or something, to keep it from sliding and tipping.
The X-Plane 10 demo had no problem using it, pretty much out-of-the-box and this makes X-Plane 10 more usable for me (though it has its own problems).
For me, Microsoft FS2004 and FSX have some functional problems. You have make sure the "toe brakes" aren't configured like "normal" joystick axes assigned to pitch and roll, which for me meant deleting the defaults and re-assigning the "toe break" axes. Also, absolutely HAD to check the "reverse" box when re-assigning, or the "toe breaks" get stuck in the "on" position. Saitek's site suggested trying it both ways to see what works, and "checked" worked for me. BTW I got the driver from Saitek's site and didn't install their special "Mad Catz" software which I've had previous, less than satisfactory experience with.
I found out that using this product in "Slew" mode causes the plane to spin around wildly until I move the pedals; then it stops and I have to use the pedals to get the plane facing the way I want. Haven't really tried to fix this, since I don't use "Slew" that much.
The thing that really bugs me is that using these pedals seems to disable the keyboard period key and joystick button I've assigned to the period key as the "brake" function. So the only way I can stop the plane without differential braking on the ground is by stepping on both left and right "toe brakes" at the same; and I mean exactly at the same time, or by using the parking brake (control + period), which still works. I haven't spent a lot of time trying to fix this either, since I'm getting much better at simultaneous left and right "toe braking". I don't (yet) have the payware FSUIPC, which I've read helps with joystick and keyboard stuff, so I don't know if it can help in this case.
I think if you buy this product, you'll have a set of rudder pedals that you can use and that will work, but you won't be buying a quality product.
The package arrived in perfect condition and in Windows 7 Pro x64 I had no problem with installation. MS Flight Simulator X recognized it properly, even without using the installation CD. The pedals are of good quality and work well. However, the pedals themselves are not really aircraft-like, if you look at actual pictures of Cessna, Beechcraft, Boeing and other planes. In addition, the toe brake action range is a little long and the narrow hinge point really isn't realistic. The rudder control is great with the tension adjustment being helpful. One improvement that could be made is to make pedal pressure greater, allowing the pedals to return to center more naturally, rather then just increasing friction which reduces the center position definition and makes it hard to judge when the pedals are centered.
I have not had the movement problems some others have reported. I have mine attached with Velcro to a desk chair mat. Using a non-rolling chair at the right height is a must to get the best from them. For those building a sim cockpit, yes, they can be screwed down and have extensions to increase stability even more.
For those who can afford to upgrade, I'd recommend Saitek's Cessna or Combat pedals that have pedals shaped more like a real aircraft. For the rest of us, these are a great addition to a flight simulator.
