Owning the Warthog HOTAS
for a couple of years now, I always felt, that all the rudder systems I owned were crap in comparison and everything I tried sucked. Starting with the CH pedals, (also known as the nut crusher), Saiteks and last and least the new Thrusmasters, I finally realized, I wasted time and money and that I might as well have bought the Crosswinds all along.
Well, I received my pedals in graphite/black a couple of weeks ago and finally I have a set of pedals to complement my Warthog.
The craftsmanship is amazing and in my desk configuration they are clearly visible to receive the admiration they deserve.
In terms of functionality and configuration, my flying improved right from the get go and after some testing with different spring stiffness and cambers, my taxiing, take offs, landings, coordinated turns and combat flying, all have improved exponentially. Gunnery alone is sooo much easier now. And my legs are now comfortably positioned.
I know the Crosswinds have been reviewed and commented on here a plenty, but I felt that I needed to bring this fine piece of equipment on the front page once more. If anyone is into serious simming and still on the fence, wait no longer.
