I'd like to get a set of rudder pedals for this game and other flight sims. My current stick is a Logitech Wingman Force.
I read an article at Combatsim.com regarding the Hoffman Vario-simped pedals from Germany, they sound great but can you really tell the difference between these pedals and the CH Pro pedals?
If price were not a determining factor would you buy the pedals from Germany over the CH pedals or whatever else is out there?
Thanks

Yes, I am interested in this too. Seriously considering pedals, and off course looking for the best and cheapest that works with Wingman Force.

So far my bet was CH Pro pedals.

Any comments?

I got my self a set off Simped pedals a little while back,and I recommend them 100%.

They are really smooth and extremely precise.

Good hunting

Stork,

The only point of reference that I have, are the CH Pro Pedals that I've been using for a couple years. I could break an anvil with a rotten banana, but these pedals have never given me a minute's trouble, although I'm sure the same could be said for some other pedals too.

Thanks to all of you who replied. Did any of you notice any difference in flying ability and kills per mission after adding the pedals?

Hehe, sounds good. At the moment I only use rudder to get out of spins and in very rare cases to correct the way my nose will drop down when I do a Rope a Dope.

I'm currently flying with a Gravis Blackhawk. I'm very happy with it but I've been considering a force-feed stick and rudder pedals.

-any general force stick recommendations;

-any pedals which will work with my Blackhawk, if i decide not to get the force stick?


Thanks.

For sheer sturdiness I could recommend the Thrustmaster RCS. I bought these 5 or so years ago and they've been great until last month when they refused to calibrate correctly. I understand from the revamped Thrustmaster site that the 'gubbins' inside do tend to go west after a while. Maybe I'll contact them to get a new pot.
Happy hunting!!!

I have CH pedals, Thrustmaster RCS and simpeds. {I host lots of LAN parties and need tons of equip.} The simpeds are the pedals I use. I force everyone to use other pedals:] {Every advantage goes to the host.}
The money was well spent. No question.
RCS pedals are not really accurate and too wide.
Ch pedals, Clack and click when moved and are closer to better.
Simpeds are right on and feel like real rudder pedals, read the review on this site, it's right on. These are great pedals

Gen Savage,

Hehe, I might be wrong about the name or it simply has several. I started using this before I knew what it was called. Anyway, the trick I was referring to was this (Description found at NJG/88's homepage:

"The Zoom to the Wall: This is probably one of the oldest tricks in the book. The E fighter, judging his Energy advantage goes to pure Vertical Zoom Climb versus a pursuing angle fighter. Ideally the target will poop-out or even stall out directly below the zooming plane. Then the E-fighter drops on him."

It sounds easy doesn't it , but the hard part is not the manouver, but to know when you can get away with it. You don't get a second chance if you misjudge the pursuer's speed and range. People that have played with me online know this is my favorite trick .
