Summary: This is my second time ordering this same set of Saitek rudder pedals. The first set I had for a year before they decided to break on me. The product works great and is easy to calibrate and setup in a variety of games.
Summary: The pedals are the only Saitek product I've purchased. I doubt I would purchase another product.
Pros: They look great...very authentic.
Cons: Very clunky which wasn't my primary complaint. After 14 months of fairly heavy use, the left toe brake stopped working and the rudder started spiking in that you would push the right pedal to turn right and you would turn left for a brief moment before turning back to the right.
Summary: More resistance on the pedals than on my old Cessna 182K. Not impressed with them. Thought because they carried the name Cessna that they would be much better. Used this for one day. 100% dissatisfied.
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 wh...
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...
Summary: Spend your money on something else. What? I don't know. I know of other brands that have top tier quality all metal construction pedals for more than double what these cost, I was just hoping to get away with spending a little less. I guess I may be upgrading sooner than I thought.
Pros: I am having a hard time coming up with a "pro" for this set of pedals. Maybe if the price were more reasonable, I could at least say at least you are getting your money's worth
Cons: Where to start? I personally am pretty disappointed in these pedals. I thought I was going to get something pretty good for a $200 price tag (not that it's a LOT of money, but it isn't chump change either), but even if these were $100, I would say they aren't worth it. Right out of the box, almos...
Summary: If you get one be sure to closely examine it for cracks in the plastic.
Pros: Not used long enough to determine any pros.
Cons: Pedal broke off. This was not due to hard or abusive use; I barely used them. After a while playing with the pedals, I noticed the left one made an extra "clicking" sound whenever it was used. Upon inspection this noise was due to a crack that had formed on the base of the pedal, where the pedal ...
Summary: Have had these pedals for over a year now and have only used them lightly - about 2-3 hours a week average, mainly to augment my flight training by running through scenarios before actual flight.
Summary: Well another product from Saitek that is total junk. The lowest adjustment (less resistance) was still very hard to push and you will need to secure it to the floor to prevent it from moving! Also, the brakes do not release after applying them..
