Did some further modifications to my MFG's. A can of spray paint and no more white rudder pedals.
Red spring adjustment wheel, red brake spring adjusters and some bronze accents. Also ordered a red hydraulic damper to match.

I like the spring adjustment wheel - nice detail.

Finally had the old design show up. Flew a couple quick missions in IL-2 with them set to the 2nd weakest hole. They feel nice, more normal to me being able to keep my heels on the ground.

All new EU based test units are in the mail. All Australia and US testing units will soon be made locally and shipped from there, so we don't have to rely on air shipping which is not working due to the pandemic. So I have about 10 testing units left if anyone from EU wants them, pm me.

 

I think the hydraulic dampers are another winner. The main axis hydraulic damper just takes it to another lever, for those seeking realistic, heavy duty feel. And brakes hydraulic dampers do the same for the brake feel. I will do some more flight tests, and then start sending testing kits for further suggestions .

 

Tools. Not toys.

If you're wondering what are they bolted to, it's a modular flight rig I'll add to my product line:

S! 

 

@hegykc That modular cockpit looks like a winner. Can it be built to hold mouse tray on right, monitor hold etc? Also the dampener would be a nice addition to Crosswinds :)

Yes, I'll put a mouse and keyboard tray, and a monitor stand. Also a bunch of other controls.

The new style pedals with the support blocks arrived for me a few days ago (London).

 

All I can say is that they are rock solid so far, very coinfidence inspiring with the extra surface area of the support block.  Big improvement over the first design. 

 

The new options for bolt placement is also welcome; I've managed to mount them slightly lower than the old set, and they sit in the arch of my foot even better.  This has made a bigger difference than I thought it would, and feels even more natural.

Hi Hrvoje

This is my first post here.

 

I am starting my Sim build and should have my Crosswind V2 in a couple days.

 

I would like to incorporate the new style pedals and dampers for my Crosswind V2 and wondered if I could get a set to buy. I am located in Oshkosh, WI USA.

I could source the damper locally but would need the plastic mount's and pedals. 

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

Edward
