737 Rudder Pedal Recommendations?
« on: March 09, 2018, 12:07:14 AM »
I am getting around to thinking about what rudder pedals I want to use in my 737 sim.  Real pedals aren't an option right now (floor isn't designed for it) and I don't want to break the bank, but I would like to find something realistic and reliable.  Any recommendations on what is good these days?

Thanks in advance!
Tony

I have been thinking about this myself. I do not think there is much out there at the moment. If you find something please share! I will do the same.

Thanks Bob.

So here qre the options I have found so far:

Flightdecksolutions - look like very solid pedals with pedal adjustment just like the real thing.  But at $3500 CAD for a single and $6000 CAD for dual linked it’s just too far out of my price range right now.  But someday these are what I’d like to end up with.

https://flightdeck-solutions.myshopify.com/collections/b737ng/products/b737ng-rudder-pedals

Flypfc - I read that their Boeing pedals are quite good and well priced at $745 USD but the pedals are closely spaced which isn’t very realistic.  But I’m still considering them as an iption in the interim.

https://flypfc.com/shop/rudder-pedals/cirrus-rudder-pedals-boeing-style/

Opencockpits - These look pretty good.  Saw a review out there that made it sound like these were pretty good.  I’m not sure what the vertical flanges are on the center piece (maybe for mounting adjustment controls?).  That’s not on the real thing.  But at 695 EUR the price is good and might be worth the slight difference from real.

Simujabs - appears to be the same as the Opencockpits one but more expensive at 920 EUR

http://simujabs.com/index.php/component/virtuemart/boeing/boeing-b-737/b737-single-rudder-pedals-detail?Itemid=0

Northern Flightsim - These are on the more expensive side and look like they require under floor mounting.  Dual linked are $4250 USD.  Not going to work for me but just piinting it out.

Any I missed?

I Use PFC
They fit on the Ace Yoke
Serious quality, work flawlessly, real plug and play
Fair price for what you get
Good looking
 IMHO: spacing of the pedals is not an issue as spreading your legs on the real airplane is not the most comfortable position (my2¢).

Thanks Jack.  I think it was your recommendation I saw for those a while back.  Wasn’t sure if you were still using them.  Glad they fit over the Ace yoke which is what I’m using.

Speaking of yokes, FlyPFC has a Boeing style column now.  Happy to see they heard the user feedback!

In my shop we have used the OpenCockpits rudder pedals and find them very good. You can link them yourself at a later date with simple materials.

I do have an old set of PFC pedals that I am thinking about re interfacing. Might be my out for now. I have several sets of the CH pedals and the number one problem with them is they are too narrow for the setup with the yoke I am using. Other then that they work well. I have even thought about ripping a pare of the CH ones apart and see how hard it would be to re purpose them.. So much to do and so little time. May have to slow down on the streaming to get some of this work done. I almost feel rushed at this point!  :laugh:

I have been eying those Brunner CLS force feedback pedals as well.  Looks like FlyPFC sells them rebranded.  At $2095 they aren’t cheap and don’t have 737 pedals on them but given they provide force feedback the price isn’t all that bad so I might have to consider them. 

Anyone have experience with the Brunner line?  They have a nice 6DOF platform as well (I figure since I am dreaming I might as well dream big!)

Here's a couple more I've found:

Poldragonet - Adjustable pedals similar to FDS, looks almost dead on accurate.  979 EUR.  They only show a 3D model on the site so I have no idea what the actual looks like and have no reference for how good they are.

http://symulatory.com/shop/boeing-737ng-2/modules-plugplay/b737-rudder

Sismo - Looks quite accurate as well, but no adjustment handle.  Only one picture and I'm not sure what currency their price is (EDIT, it is USD).  The site shows $948.57.

https://sismo-soluciones.com/en/cockpit/488-stand-alone-rudder-pedal.html

I want to say ACE may have also been developing/developed rudder pedals but nothing is on their site so I can't remember if I'm dreaming it or not.

They have accurate to scale 737NG USB rudder pedals. I am considering some myself, I already own their Captain B737 Yoke.
