Be the king of the sky with the Saitek Pro Flight Combat Rudder Pedals. Similar to the pedal design of modern fighter aircraft like the F16 or F35, the Rudder Pedals give you a true-to-life experience, just as a pilot manipulates the controls of a real jet fighter. The independent left and right brake axes, with smooth and accurate motion, allow precise command of your airplane when performing braking maneuvers, while the pedals' angle is adjustable to suit your flying style. The rubber axis is self-centering, and features user-configurable damping for customized pressure to operate the rudder axis. This unit is constructed from a highly robust die-cast alloy for durability and authenticity.

The Smart Technology (ST) programming software is included, which allows gamers to configure their controls to suit their preferred gaming style, and to save the configurations as personal profiles.

1 out of 5 eggsAlmost Garbage

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, almost instantly, i could tell I was going to have a problem with them:

1) They are very very plastic. The build quality is poor.
2) I feel like I am going to crush them with the weight of my feet on them.
3) The rudder pedal action itself is terrible. It feels like plastic scraping against plastic. It is impossible to get accurate or even reasonably sensitive rudder action. I ended up using the toe brakes as my rudder.
4) Even though the toe brakes work much better for rudder, The left pedal has issues with the spring-back mechanism. About 1/8th of the pedal throw is wasted because it can't return back to zero. So my dead zone on the left side has to be set really high, where the right pedal snaps back to 0 very well on it's own.

I honestly can't believe they charge almost $200 bucks for these. Terribly disappointed.

Other Thoughts: 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. Two weeks with these, and i'm done.

1 out of 5 eggsWatch for cracks

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 is attached to the unit.

It is too late to return the unit.

Other Thoughts: If you get one be sure to closely examine it for cracks in the plastic.

2 out of 5 eggsCheap construction

Pros: Hey, they're pedals! Time to yaw.

Cons: Cheap construction- Saitek has dosedived in quality since Madcatz took over. The toe brakes have really cheap, weak springs- I'm lucky to have about 60% of the axis working after deadzoning. Plus the toe brakes activate about 20% when using the rudder, regardless of what you're doing.

The software is miserable. Poor UX, poor UI, sloppy programming capabilities, consistent crashes when editing shiftstate.

Other Thoughts: In general they work- just be prepared for sloppy axis and having to tweak deadzones. It's a shame that they can't quite master the very tricky "spring technology".

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: Tracking is pretty good

Adjustable tension for the rudder motion

It's a decent looking unit

Cons: For the asking price it feels a bit cheap. While the heel rests are metal, they are just thin sleeves slipped over plastic parts. Almost everything else is plastic.

Brake pedals are *WAY* too easy to trigger and the tension isn't adjustable.

Unit is *NOISY* - every move of the pedals sounds like plastic pieces are being pushed through a grinder.

The rubber feet on the bottom of the unit *might* keep it from sliding on a tile/wood floor, but they are useless for carpet. Instead of engineering a proper solution, Saitek included two strips of velcro that you have to stick to the bottom of the unit. Since a lot of carpet isn't any thing like the hooks/loops used in velcro, I wasn't really surprised when it didn't work at all for me. Due to the fact that the unit is mostly plastic it doesn't weigh very much either, which contributes to how easy it slides around.

Other Thoughts: I got this as part of a bundle with a Thrustmaster Warthog - if not for that, I'd probably consider returning them...they just aren't worth the asking price with the noise, the too-easy to press brake pedals, and most especially if they can't stay in place when used.

4 out of 5 eggsSaitek Pro Combat Rudder Pedals

Pros: These are the physical construction I've seen on rudder pedals, and are also comfortable either with shoes or barefoot. Action is quite smooth, and I have no doubt these will last a long time.

Cons: I only gave 4 out of 5 rating, but would give other rudder pedals less. The issues I have are all related to the toe brakes. Toe brakes need far more tension, and are non-adjustable...only the rudder portion is adjustable.

Slightly touching these brakes activates them...it isn't possible to rest the feet on the rudders and not drag the toe brakes unless barefoot with only the toes wrapped onto the rudder (this is comfortable, just not resting). The angle which the toe brakes stick out at is adjustable to make brake access more or less active based on foot angle...it's the right idea, but the least angled direction is too much.

To correct "slight touch" a much stronger spring would work. Alternatively, the dead zone could be set larger, but unfortunately the software does this quite wrong. Normal joystick devices center at "0" and move through range "-1000" to "+1000". Dead zone on centered devices surrounds the "0" point. Toe brakes start at "-1000" and do not center at zero. Rudder dead zone instead cuts off at "-1000", which is ok...unfortunately, they also cut off the "+1000" end. In order to use dead zone to stop resting, one has to vastly cut the entire range.

Real rudders (I'm a real pilot) allow resting without dragging brakes. Typical action is that when pushing brakes there is a slight range of lower pressure before engaging hydraulics...at which point pressure increases. When increase starts, brakes begin movement, but do not immediately touch braking surfaces. When finally hitting braking surface, resistance should increase at least enough to be able to have a tactile feedback. Thus real brakes go from significant rest tension to not accidentally drag, to hydraulics engaged but not braking, finally to heavier resistance for actual braking. These rudders go from far too little resistance to avoid dragging, directly into braking with still far far too little resistance.

What Saitek should have done is to provide small resistance which is far more than exists, followed by a sudden increase in pressure after a small movement, followed by begin of "-1000" slightly into this increased pressure. Dead zone should be adjusting just this beginning area and not the maxed out end (maxed out end could have a dead zone, but NEVER tie it to the start point). The angle that the toe brakes sit at should also be FAR less (adjustment just allows far increased angle).

Other Thoughts: I'm thinking I may try to find a way to increase spring tension, but I'm not sure how yet. This would allow dead zone to be small and feet to rest without starting braking. These are still the highest quality rudders I've seen, I'm just disappointed Saitek came so close but did not put out the effort on toe brakes which they put out on the rudder portion.

5 out of 5 eggsSaitek Pro Combat Rudder Pedals

Pros: Smooth rudder movement. Toe brakes are a little different than my previous pedals but I grew used to it. I played a mission in DCS Black Shark and loved it. These pedals ar a fine piece of flight sim hardware. I am running these under Windows 7 64bit with my Thrustmaster Warthog. They work fine together as long as the simulation supports seperate controllers.

Cons: None that I can think of. These are a bit pricey but New Eggs price was as low or lower than other reputable dealers

Other Thoughts: My pedals needed a little adjustment upon arrival. The left toe brake was sticking. Loosening the adjustment bolts on the side of the pedal fixed the problem.
