You don't need pedals- as you know, you have rudder control on the bar on your throttle. Personally I never got on with it, and would recommend the CH Pro pedals. I've you've got the cash, they are a good investment, and will make your flying more comfortable, more accurate and more immersive.

you should only get them if you are really-really into the sim... imo..

I use the CH model and they work fine.. There are a ton of posts on this very topic.. Try doing a search for "rudder pedals" on the foums..

GL!

If you are using the X45, rudder pedals are recommended as the only rudder control you have is on the underside of the throttle handle. You will need rudder pedals that are USB or gameport for the back of the pc tower.

Because of that, I returned the X45 I had bought last summer and went to a Cougar HOTAS and CH Pro rudder pedals.
