Review of the Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals

Today at Flightsimulationguru.com we review the Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals.

Overall I was very impressed with this system. The pedals are solidly built, easy to setup and have a wide rage of movement. They’re somewhat uncomfortable to use if you don’t have shoes on, but then again I suppose most people don’t fly without shoes on.

My only concern is that the pedals tend to move across the floor during use unless you take additional measures (beyond what’s provided out of the box) to secure the pedals in place.

My own simple solution to this problem is to position the pedals so they’re solidly pressed against the base of a wall. In my case, I put a few large books on the floor between the wall and the pedals (as my desk is set slightly away from the wall). You’ll have to figure out your own solution, but it’s not really a big deal. There are also holes in the base of the pedals if you want to use large screws to attach the system to part of a larger simulator setup.

For anyone looking to acquire a set up rudder pedals, I’d very very comfortable recommending this product.

Note (As I’m sometimes asked): This is a fully independent review. I have not been paid by Saitek for this review and purchased the Pro Flight Rudder Pedals at retail price.

Do you use these rudder pedals? Do you like them? Do use a different set of rudder pedals? Please comment below to let me and others know.

  1. I find that these are expensive and that they break real fast. You need to be kind of careful with using these not to break them. It is hard to get support for these and the warranty does not cover damages from any visible wear and tear.
