Thx
I guess you and Vorlander, as owners of Crosswinds notice more subtle changes on the pedals than others :-)

Mine arrived yesterday, and after few brief flights in DCS Huey, I am very impressed...and pleased driving
They are example of fine craftsmanship: They look and feel superb to anything available on market, and are very precise and responsive..
I think that my strafing runs with avenger cannon will now rack more kills per pass..Also taking off in Huey and Mi-8 now I finally can take of while keeping my noise pointed in one direction +/- few degrees..

Hi all
I've published new video on youtube if anyone is intrested
It cover unpacking, assembly and calibration ( calibration at 6:50) . Old videos were a bit long and calibration was more directed to old customers and upgrade proces , so it was complicated and confusing for new customers.



Enjoy

Hi All
It's been a while since my last update due to lack of time, not because lack of updates :-)

RUBBER FEET :
Pedals ship with better rubber pads for a while now. As many of you noted pedals get a better grip on surfaces like stone, parquet or similar. However, when stronger pedals tension is desired I still recomend very much hard mounting pedals. Alternative - use velcro strips


HOLES FOR HARD MOUNTING PEDALS :
These holes recived a revision to allow user possibility of using variety of different screws without any hassle
Metric thread screws M6,M5,M4 can be used, and woodscrews or other types too, with various screw heads


COMPATIBILITY WITH WHEELSTAND PRO
I can announce that producers of wheelstand pro will make another set of holes on their pedals plate to make MFG Crosswind rudder pedals compatible with their product without need of user drilling holes
http://www.wheelstandpro.com/


MFG SOFTWARE AND FIRMWARE UPGRADE
More than a few firmware updates were released since my last update here.
Current version is Firmware v4.17 and MFG Configurator 1.41
I will not write all the changes here, since full changelog as well as user manuals are included inside MFG Software package 1.41 and available to download from my website here :
http://mfg.simundza.com/download.php

I only publish a screenshot of version 1.41 :






FUTURE CHANGES - STATUS

CAM7 and US FIGHTER COMBAT STYLE FOOT PLATES are still not finished. If you take a look at current waiting time for pedals - 2 months...I don't have to explain why.
GREY/BLACK pedals color switch - ...not yet :-( I have to delay this switch for a few moths at least :-(


PEDALS AVAILABILITY
Current waiting time approx 60 days from order confirmation

Got mine yesterday and couldn't be happier. They're a joy to use and Milan answered my questions almost immediately when I e-mailed him. That man knows how to design/build an amazing product and also give incredible customer service!

Good question. smile

Perhaps they plan make a CAM gimbal kit, similar to one BAUR make.

Although not too much advisable (due their play), this controller and sensors can be used on Cougar Gimbal, CH Gimbal...

MFG now sold aluminium extension for Warthog, more affordable than similar products, and more if buy 2/3 - that can be combined to get custom sizes.

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=169429

BTW - MFG soft package 2.15 manual has more information about SIMM8rge USB controller card,
e.g. can support 128 buttons in DCS without keymapper soft, suport MLX 90333 HALL sensor in 3D (like in Warthog/Tm T.1600M, X-55)
or 2D - sliding or turn magnets.
