What is wrong with using the drivers?

I got my pedals today. I am having troubles because even at the lightest tension, they slide on my carpet. Anybody solved this problem?

Brace it against the wall. I used to use my subwoofer to do this, but now I've bolted it down to my pit floor. It was one of the reasons for wanting to build a pit --- to have a stable platform for rudders.

Don't they have a flip down gripper on the base for use on carpets ?

I was never able to install the SST and the drivers on W764 and (since normally programming the pedals is not needed) SST is not really needed.

I was able to fix the sliding problem and it only cost me $2.00. I went to Home Depot and bought "large square spiked cup". They come packaged with 4. They are in the same aisle as the rubber feet and felt pads. They are used for placing beneath the legs of furniture to prevent them from sliding on carpet. I cut the walls off from the square cups to make them flat. I attached them to my pedals with velcro. They work great!

Industrial-strength velcro also works well.

Velcro worked for me too but glad you found a cheap solution that works. Rudder pedals are great and like a HOTAS, once you go that route you never go back.


I've got a bad feeling about this.....
