If you are not sure which model of pedals you have watch assembly video first. Only V3 pedals have additional holes for easy damper installation and have "v3" engraved on baseplate.

V3 damper mounting solution has 3% assimetric forces between left/right rudder movement which majority of people dont feel. If you think it might bother you buy "damper retrofit" all-included kit instead - that will provide option to mount as V2 in perfect symetric forces !
Few of our capable customers have installed hydraulic damper on MFG Crosswind by themselves in the past, using various adaptations and whitnessing it's nice effects to realisam. After spreading their thoughts around the globe we started to get inquiries for these. As damper can be implemented in various ways, and various shapes and forms, it took MFG Team a while to source proper quality components to produce desired effects on rudder pedals and test for the best adaptation.

Our solution is elegant as always ... instalation is simple, does not increase overall footprint of the pedals even when in motion, damper adjustment is at fingertip with correct and smooth damping force. Importantly enough - this add-on will not break the bank or pedals :-))

Hydraulic damper is NOT a necessity for pedals, but it substantially improves overall feel and realisam on the pedals !!!

What hydraulic damper does is add smooth fluid friction to rudder axis motion, and that friction can be finely adjusted by 23 increments on the damper, therefore customer has a choice of using no friction at all - and up to very hard friction.

You may ask why anyone want such friction. Well, by using damper pedals start to feel "heavy" as in real aircraft, fast changes in direction are harder to do - as in real aircraft and therefore it is harder to "overshoot the enemy" in a dogfight.  Helicopter anti torque pedals are A LOT BETTER SIMULATED with damper and centering spring detatched on pedals, Airliner simulator also benefit of hydraulic feel as in real aircraft.

So this lead me to conclusion... if you can afford it - use damper on your pedals

Damper assembly video

Recomended mounting "Over the center" as explained at the end of assembly video !

If you dont have it, Buy necessary imbus key 6mm


Add functionality at its best

The damper makes the rudder movement much smoother. extra bonus!



    A brilliant addition to a brilliant product. HIGHLY recommended.


      Makes the difference

      Smooths out the whole travel and reduces the deadzone!



        Has a feel you can't get normally with spring tension. good.


          Fantastic - must buy

          If you own the V3 pedals, get these. You do not need them of course, but they really make an already great product even better.

          Absolutely recommend.


            MFG Crosswind Damper kit

            As a 10,000+ hour pilot with the damper added to the pedals it feels far more like a real aircraft. Build and fitting is of the best quality and I would struggle to find any faults.

            Perfect !

            Very perfect for having a smooth return of the rudder to the neutral


              Best Addition

              This damper is the best addition for your pedals and will make everything respond very smoothly as if you were flying the real thing - highly recommend for the best experience!


                Hydraulic Damper

                Very satisfied with it.


                  Love them.

                  I use it for planes with the spring, and without the spring for helicopters. Very nice improvement for the pedals!


                    Worth it.

                    The little addon make a great set of peddles even better. Gives them a more realistic feel. This keeps you from moving the peddles too fast..


                      Hydraulic Damper

                      Very good product and the damper strength adjustability is awesome.
                      Add to your realism need.


                        buy this

                        this is just what I wanted for my V3s. I had my spring cranked to try and get more resistance, but this damper allows me to run less spring and gives the resistance that I have been wanting.

                        **IF YOU BUY V3s ABSOLUTELY GET THIS**
