I recommend them highly. If you can get them for less than $90, it's a bargain

I'm on my second pair. I still have my game-port set, but moved to USB last year. Only problems I've had are:

1) Game-port set was very sensitive/jumpy, required constant calibration.

2) Game-port set internal wiring wasn't routed properly and one was "clipped" by the pedal sliders. (easily repaired with a soldering iron!)

3) USB set has worked very well, and only needs calibration 1-2 times per month.

CH support is usually very good and the "CH-hanger.com" site is excellent for help/tips.

A good item, and that is a LOT less than I paid for them in ALASKA!

My only two beefs are (1) Strong centering spring, notchy effect on center (2) a PF problem, which is it doesn't support the excellent individual toe braking that these pedals can accomplish.

Much more realistic flying!

you can program them for toe braking, just not differential toe braking.

Great pedals and a good price. How can you go wrong? (They'd even make a great gift.)

Yes, they work like real pedals, so toe braking is included! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

They're excellent. And I don't do racing sims, but they include stoppers to lock the pedals for use as brake and accellerator.

And the only reason you can't do differential toe braking is because Il-2 series doesn't have it.

Obsid, S!

$97, sheesh I paid about 107 for mine. I love them. i dont see how I would ever be able to go back to a twist stick. They are very responsive but tuff. You seen me fly, heh, they take a beating with me trying to get out of stalls. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Like Steve said, Great pedals, good price.

I have the gameport pedals + fighterstick. It is worth mentioning that the toe brakes will not work in this config due to the number of axis that Windows/gameports support, even if the game does support it.

USB equipment will work fine.

I love my CH pro pedals. I have never had to recalibrate them and flown endlessly with them for several years. I never want to go back to a twist stick. I paid $120 for them, and most are going for nearly that.

Hmmm individual toe braking works perfectly in PF just like it did before in the earlier series. IL2 is simply setup to apply more braking as you add more rudder input to that side. Thats very similair to the way you would use steering in tricycle gear aircraft. You had rudder inputs, which turns the nose gear and if you want more turning you apply brakes to that side. Nearly every tricycle gear aircraft that I have flown and taxiied ( there are notable exceptions, the Grumman tiger/cheetah and a few others)(I have over 2500 hours of engine run and taxi time innumerous aircraft, mostly EMB 145's, CRJ 200's EMB 120's and Fairchild metro's.) have worked this way. Ok so its not 100% axis, but its pretty close to how things work. I have no problems with it.

I got mine on EBAY think I paid $79. Very pleased with them. COntrary to a poster above I like the midpoint notch since then I know when they are in a neutral position.

Love the pedals too.

Can't figure out how to get them working in PF though. First time I've tried to use them outside of MS Flight Simulator.

I like these http://home.t-online.de/home/d-hofmann/homeeng.htm
They're a little pricey, but the accuracy and build are second to none.

Good deal, if I may suggest another, click on this link.

I didn't like the feel of the joystick so, I just use the buttons on it and use another joystick for x&y axis, but where else can you get a good throttle for this price.

Strong centering spring, notchy effect on center

I agree, it make very hard to make smooth movement unlike real airplane pedals

Just got them last night and i'm doing many tests. I have to get use to it and i will have maybe a more positive attitude toward this product.

If i'm still not in love with the CH's i'll make my own with it's composents.

Have had my CH pedals for years and absolutely no problem whatsoever. Going back to a twist or rocker would be like hakcing off my feet.

I've used these pedals for over six years now and like them very much. I can say that my USB Pro Pedals have proven difficult to recognize on the USB bus when removed regularly. Therefore, I leave them plugged in all the time.

Also, CH has always provided first rate service on repairs when needed.
