Awesome. Better than I expected
2 weeks ago
Summary: Awesome. Better than I expected. Have had two saitek sets of the regular rudder pedal sets, one worn out after years of use, then I purchased a replacement set. Gave those to my son when these came in. Saitek has good products...especially for the price!
Summary: I've had issues trying to get these to work in Microsoft Flight. And since the game has zero support and has been largely ignored and forgotten about by Microsoft it's no big deal. Flight Simulator X, X-Plane, Elite Dangerous, these pedals work without question. and sometime in the future Star Citizen will too.
Pros: These things take a weekend beating and still manage to function beautifully. From X-Plane to Elite Dangerous these pedals work. Properly configured they will give you many years of service. I recently added a Volair Sim flight simulation setup to my rig and these pedals with their hook and loop tape work. And won't budge a millimeter, no matter how much force you put into braking on the runway. (Note, the Volair Sim chair separated from the display assembly before th...
Cons: Again the short USB cable is the PZ35 Pro's downfall. Needing either an extension USB cable or a USB hub to bridge the distance to your PC. (Unless its on the floor and close by to the pedals.)
Pros: looked cool. felt solid. liked the toe brakes.
Cons: Sent first one back as the right toe brake wouldn't fully reset. Second one was a tad better. However after 4 months of use, when I push the right rudder pedal past 1 or two inches, it registers full left and the power light goes out. Junk. I can't believe I paid 250 for them. Buyer beware. No where near the quality of the Thrustmaster Warthog Hotus I own. Saitek, you guys should be embarrassed of the poor quality control.
Summary: These must be hard mounted to a floor or other object in order to be stationary. 2nd option is to reduce resistance but then you will most likely overfly on yaw inputs.
Pros: Solid construction for a mid range peripheral. Plastic with some metal parts.
Cons: Software is bad. Calibration is terrible. Toe brake was stuck with some input to MS Flight Simulator X, XPlane 10, and Star Citizen. Calibration showed normal with Saitek's software, Win7>>Games>>Tools>>Input Devices, and simulations internal calibrations. Star Citizen has no internal calibration at this time so I used SCJ Mapper. Still could not reduce or eliminate the toe brake input even with the deadzone maxed out. Saitek (Madcatz) support was unhelpful with the s...
Pros: Bought this to be used with a Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS for Star Citizen. Construction is plastic but solid so far. The metal pedals are adjustable and nice. Having the Green LED activity light is reassuring. The pedals can be stuck with supplied Velcro or bolted directly to a surface. The unit reacts exactly and quickly to inputs.
Cons: It is expensive, for that I would have liked it to have less plastic and more metal.
