This kit includes all components both to retrofit on older V1,V2 pedals as well as to just install on V3 pedals. Since on V3 pedals damper can also be fitted as on V2 pedals this is a recomended kit as some people might feel 3% asymetry on V3 kit while mounting mounting as V2 provide perfectly simetric 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

Follow video installation guide carefully to avoid assembly mistakes and damage on damper retrofit plate !

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

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

Feeling improvment

After two weeks of daily use (1 to 2 hrs/day)
I do confirmed the rudder feeling and control is really improved. Allowing tiddly up and down in my Magnificent flying machine ;-)

Incredible transformation

These pedals were amazing before this upgrade but now with the dampener installed they feel absolutely amazing! This is a no brainer, if you own these pedals this is a must have upgrade.

They only get better

This is an amazing upgrade for the already awesome MFG Crosswinds. The damper is capable of really making you have to work. Even at low settings it stops any oscilation at the center if I were to take my foot off from full deflection. I haven't taken my spring off and flow a helo yet, but I can't help but imagine it's going to be an amazing experience. Some disassembly and reassembly required, but honestly, Milan's pedals are designed in a way that makes it easy. Pay attention to how things fit when you're removing bolts. Take pictures. You'll be up and running in no time with this thing.

Hydraulique Damper

Bonjour,
Ce matériel apporte un plus pour le pilotage des avions notamment les avions à hélices .Il est de très bonne qualité et le montage n'est pas compliqué . j'en suis très satisfait , je l'utilise avec la came C 5 . La vis de réglage de la dureté du vérin permet d'obtenir une large plage d'utilisation ( de la plus souple à la plus dure ).Le ressort ne sert plus qu'à ramener le palonnier au neutre .
Cordialement

dumper is OK ;)

Dumper is not necessary, but it smooth the spring oscillation, so in some cases it is helpful. Overall feel is also better. I can recommend it for anyone looking for better realism factor.

Smooth is just a word

We all love our midrange MFGs, they're awesome! Great pedals, great cam. Not as great as the top of the line Thrustmasters, but who cares. Seriously. They're good value. Now screw that dampener on them to take the "springy" feel out. Ohhh boy, you're gonna be suprised. Now you will feel that hydraulic feel, that smooth resistance, and your MFGs will become something that can compete with the top of the line, but for much less, and easy to work on and fix! 5☆ from me! My Spit feels like something else!

Great upgrade!

Shipping was crazy fast, and installation was a breeze. The damper takes the MFG pedals to the next level. I have much better control in my favorite sims. Highly recommended.

Love it!

I think it is absolutely worth it. When you increase the dampening the pedal movements become much smoother. The only downside I can see is that as you increase the dampening you need to also tighten the spring or change you cam as the spring will be a bit too weak to perfectly re-center the pedals. As you fly it's not as big of a deal though as you normally have your feet on the pedals and make small adjustments. It has perfect fit, easy and fast to mount after watching the assembly video and it also make the pedals look cool.

                Delivery very prompt and as estimated.
                Took me about 20 min to fit - no problems.

                  Working Beautifully!

                  The damper is great for planes, and even better for helicopters making operation excellent with the centering spring removed.

                    Straightforward, rugged, great improvement

                    This is a high quality improvement for your Crosswinds, already the best pedals for your simulations. The damper makes them great for helos too. Not simple to fit, but straightforward, if you know what I mean. Good value. Many thanks!

                      This makes them perfect

                      As much as I loved my pedals, I thought they were lacking in resistance and were too easy to push and difficult to smoothly get back to center. The damper on my v2 pedals gives the perfect amount of resistance I was looking for, makes them super smooth and recenters without any bouncing. If you have a set of crosswind rudder pedals you seriously need to get this damper.

                        This is really nice and well built. The feel is so much better just the springs. It definitely feels more realistic for me based on real world flight experience.
