Hi guys....been playing a "little" AEP lately(to the point where going into sunlight hurts now!)
Got myself some CH Pro Pedals after hearing how good they are...you guys were right...they totally beat the **** off the ol' twisty stick.
I am thinking about building a wooden base to sit them in to get a better angle - as I find I'm always leaning on the brakes(not good on takeoff!!)
Does anyone know a good angle from the floor to put them on for the most realistic feel/use ?
Any suggestions?
P.S What do you guys use the spare axis for?

For the spare axis you might try flaps...

Not a good idea, since default position for that axis naturally falls at the centre point. I speak from experience, since I recently repaired my Thrustmaster Elites, plugged them in, and started a quick mission to test them. I thought it would be a good idea to use the rocker on my X45 for brakes...

That is, until I tried to land... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

The spare axis on the pedals, not the old rudder axis. The CH Pro Pedals have 3 axes, rudder & two toe brakes. In IL2 FB you can only use one of the toe brakes, but flaps work really well on the other toe axis.

The now vacant twist/rocker rudder axis on the stick is not much use unless your joystick driver allows axis banding, at which point the possibilites become very broad.

In theory that could be done using Saitek's programming software, but in practice, I've had nothing but problems with the bloody thing, so I just do all the programming ingame.

You're right, it is pretty useless otherwise.

There is a way to use both toe brakes for brakes if you use a CH stick with the CH brakes. It's not quite differential braking, but close enough.
