I dont mean to make another "seen-it a million times" posting, but all the threads in the search were way outdated. I asume that the CH Pro Pedals (usb)are the best by looking at the thread with all the rigs. Everybody has those. Is there even another kind worth looking at? Asuming those are the best, from your experience where is the best place to get them in the U.S. All the local places where I live dont carry them. I'd like to get the Yoke as well. Any help from your experience would be great. Also do they move laterally like real rudder pedals or do they just move vertically like car pedals?

Go to chproducts.com and check out their list of retailers. There are a number listed there who who have a significantly lower asking price than CH Products will charge you if you buy direct from them, even with shipping & handling.

You may find, as I did, that one of them is in easy driving distance, and a quick call to confirm that they have a set of Pro Pedals in stock will save you some time (and S&H).

Here in Germany, the Simped-family from the tiny company DHS http://home.t-online.de/home/d-hofmann/homeeng.htm are the most used peadals and I use them too since about 3 weeks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif . Absolutely great pedals but I can't compare them, because I only tested CH Pro-Pedals once for just a few minutes. But the Simpeds got always very good reviews - for example http://www.combatsim.com/htm/dec98/pedal-hoff.htm . So they are definitely worth a look.

I should have mentioned that the CH Pro Pedals move laterally and vertically. You have a rudder axis and two 'brake' axes.
