Summary: I like the construction, and build of the pedals. But the pedals was way to stiff even after setting it to be a loose as possible. After a few hours of using them, my legs started to get tired. I returned them.
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...it works on the test page but on the actual sim they will not release. Never again!!!!
Summary: Don't get me wrong, this pedal set may be great for you. My problem is I have size 13 shoes and I found these pedals to be too bulky with too many plastic ridges around the foot area, forcing you to make sure your feet are in the right spots! I also found the angle of the pedals to be difficult to press. I returned these for the combat type pedals as they are a "cleaner" design and in my opinion more like what you see in a real aircraft.
Summary: The pedals stick if you push them to the full travel length. Unsticking involves removing about 20 screws from the back plate, and re-inserting the pedal guide into the track. Having done this twice now, I can report that the design of these pedals is, in a word, bad. Even assuming the newer pedals are fixed, the plastic they're made out of is flimsy and flexes (which is what causes the pedals to jump the guide track).
Summary: I aquired a set of Saitek Pro Flight Pedals about a month ago. The toe brakes lock up using the rudder pedals. Contacted Saitek for help. Received acknowledgement, but no help. Followed up - ho help. Dealer will not acept return. States factory must fix or replace. Can not get any type of answer out of Saitek. Seems like they stuck me with the pedals and could care less.
Summary: After a month using my Saitex Pro Flight Rudder Pedals my system did not reconized it anymore. I tryed on other computers and the problem is the same. Amazon policy do not allow me to return afer 30 days, and Mad Catz, Inc. the company who gives support to this items, do not answer the phone and do not answer my emails. I am very desapointed for all the wasted time and the money I lost for a product that just worked for a few days.
Summary: These pedals do not work on some PCs. When you go to the calibrate window and click the properties button it takes you to the window that shows the function of the pedals. Normally, there should not be any red bars showing for the "brake" function, but mine showed "half brake" application without any deflection of the pedals. If I barely touched the pedals the red bars go away and all looks fine, but not so.
