Adjustable pedals angle and toe-out

Minimum angle = 20° ( goes fully horzontal when brake applied )
Maximum* angle = 52°
Toe-out adjustment by changing swivel ( watch video )
* can be extended up to 62° by adding 10mm support plate under pedals, or by using "width adjustment plates" extra cost option

Differential Toe Brakes

4x different settings of braking strenght adjustment ( watch video )

Adjustable and smooth rudder centering design

"cam and arm" centering principle for smooth over the center transitions

Fine tunable knob for rudder "return to center" force adjustment

Exchangeable centering " CAM " profile

CAM centering profiles have influence on progressivenes of force increase when deflecting rudder axis as well as center notch. That allow fine tuning the feel to reflect realistic forces of different aircrafts.

2x CAM's come standard with pedals ( CAM4 & CAM6 ) while more CAM's can be purchased as extra cost option ( currently CAM5 available )
Detailed explanation ( PDF file )

2x notch for rudder spring

To achieve stronger or weaker force toward the end of pedal deflection while force near the center remains

Fine piece of hardware!

I ordered my crosswinds on November 5. On November 13. delivered to Germany by DHL. What a fine piece of hardware. Silent, quiet, smooth and highly precise, absolutely clean processed and highly stable. Due to the high resolution, helicopters are under absolute control.

    Best pedals money can buy!

    These pedals are engineered with endless customisation possibilities. They are absolutely noise free compared to my old saitek pedals. I didn't know rudder pedals could be this precise. All in all a brilliant product. If you have the money to buy cheaper pedals... save it and invest in these pedals instead!

            Surely it's among the best two or maybe three pedals on the market for flight enthusiasts. The only negative thing is the price a little high but it is understandable, being all in aluminum and with a remarkable construction quality.

              Upgraded from CH Pro Pedals

              What an unbelievable difference!
              The quality of the item is 100%, and the easy to follow assembly, adjustment and calibration videos available online had the pedals up and running in less than 30 minutes. The latest version of the calibration software is a little different than the version shown on the calibration video, but still similar enough to easily perform the calibration.
              I use X-Plane, and now when I make rudder setting adjustments in the sim I can tell what has changed.
              I tried using the pedals up against the wall and found that they needed to be mounted on something to increase the bottom surface area, or I could have had to reduced the yaw axis tension.
              I have carpeting over a wooden floor, (construction grade) so I just screwed the pedals down to the floor through the carpeting, using the mounting holes provided in the pedals. Problem solved.

              BUY THESE PEDALS!

                  Top-notch quality - solid construction and flawless operation. Absolutely brilliant.

                  These may look like they need to be screwed to a base (which they can be), but you don't have to do that - setting them against the wall, if one is available, is perfectly fine and they will hold in place well.

                    Received my set of v2- graphite crosswinds recently, perfectly packaged. And delivered to the uk within 10 days of order, the quality of these rudder pedals is very impressive...
                    Also purchased a 12cm warthog ext, and again super quality, both items in my opinion offer great value for the quality they represent, very satisfied customer.

                      Phenomenal pedals.

                      I am super new to flight simming so was building up my rig. After watching a bunch of youtube vids and reading some reviews, I knew that I needed these pedals. They are an amazing addition. Expertly packed, easy to assemble, super high quality materials, they are damn near flawless in my admittedly novice opinion.
                      I don't know how they compare to real rudder pedals in a real aircraft as I am not a pilot nor in training to become one but I do know that they feel great. No sharp detent, the springs for braking are neither too hard nor easy to push. I'm 178cm tall and of average build and the width of the pedals feels good with where my legs naturally rest.
                      In X-Plane, I've had zero issues. I've only flown the stock 172 and the 172REP and the pedals have noticeably improved my ability to do all the taxiing and flying and landing stuff.

                      These pedals are amazing and I would unconditionally recommend them. They are a bit more expensive than logis or the ch stuff but these feel like a lifetime purchase. They're worth it.

                        Exceptional in nearly Every Way!!!

                        I have had my Crosswind V2’s for more than a month now and had the chance to use them quite a bit for DCS and Star Citizen. Let me tell you how incredible it was going to these pedals. They are incredibly smooth in the directional input making for very precise movements no matter what their use. The build quality is incredible!!! At first I was worried that being composite they wouldnt be as good as other out that are metal, but as soon as I had them in my hands and under my feet it completely changed my mind! Not to mention the composite is actually super comfortable!!! I can play in my bare feet and it doesnt cause even the slight discomfort. As well, there is no flex, and believe it or not, I believe these will outlast anything else out there. Not to mention, in the even that anything goes wrong, everything is super accessible and modular so any repair would be a breeze!

                        Overall I cannot suggest them enough. I have recommended them to the guys I fly with and every single one of them has either switched to or acquired these. If you’re on the fence, dont worry, just buy them and let their performance speak for itself.

                        If I had any cons it would be that I wish it would have been packaged better, my box showed up a but beat up by the shipping company and the exterior had me worried. However, everything was fine. A couple parts were moving in my box. The only other, it isnt quite a con as a preference thing, I wish the bolt to secure the cam spring was a bit shorter. I will most likely trim mine down. This is a cool sustem though as the spring rate is more or less infinitely tunable to the tension you want your pedals set at.

                          Amazing!

                          An amazing amount of thought and design went in to creating this product. It has worked flawless since the day I go it and plugged it in. The design and texture is beautiful. The adjustable tension and smooth flow of control is unmatched in my opinion. Definitely cannot get a better set of pedals and at this price it was a steal. Even though it shipped from overseas seas, it still made it in a reasonable amount of time, about a week. I truly hope the designer decides to venture into other flight sim controls. I’d love to see a throttle quadrant made to this quality.

                            Excellent Product and Purchase Experience

                            Living in Malaysia i was worried about the order/delivery process from Croatia. But it turned out to be the best international purchase experience I've had.

                            I ordered a set of Crosswinds in Graphite from the site on a Monday and the pedals were under my desk by Friday lunchtime. Awesome!

                            The product is superb. Having heard lots of positive feedback from other users i guess i had high expectations, but these have been easily met.
                            Yes they're super smooth and precise, but the big difference in flying is that the pedals essentially 'disappear'. I don't think about them at all, the focus is purely on flying. I never realised how my previous pedals were a barrier to that.

                            I can highly recommend MFG Crosswinds

                                Wow, these rudder pedals exceeded expectations. I read a lot of reviews, and watched many a YouTube videos on these, but even all of that didn't prep me for was yet to come. When I ordered these on a Friday I missed the shipping deadline, but come Tuesday just as stated I received my shipping confirmation. Final product arrived to Texas/USA on Friday of the same week. GREAT shipping with constant communication throughout the whole process.

                                Opening the box was no different than a 5 year old at Christmas. Assembly was easy, and the online videos posted by MFG make it a simple process. Product is far superior to anything I've seen, and is built to last. Very durable, and worth every penny spent.

                                  Bought these in 2016. Extremely precise and sturdy. Have used without problems in IL-2 BoX, Falcon BMS, DCS and X- Plane 11.
                                  The build quality is really good and when I don't fly I rest my legs on them. These probably lasts a lifetime, I can recommend!

                                    Best rudders available

                                    I barely write reviews but am more than happy to take a few minutes to give my 2 cents regarding the Crosswind.

                                    While doing a ton of research building my flight-sim setup, I kept seeing only one universally-recommended product: the MFG Crosswind. It didn't matter at the time that there was no website, that I had to email a stranger overseas who would in-turn custom built the rudders (by the way, terrific new website!) and that my invoice was a symbol I was unfamiliar with. Every single review said it was the only worthwhile product. I pinched my nose and took the plunge.

                                    I can honestly say that these truly are the only rudders I will ever need and the only one I can recommend to people. Don't waste any more precious time and energy and buy something that will give you a lifetime of use at the highest performance possible. Flawless performance with XPlane11 and MFSX (ps can't WAIT for their next one). Plays nice with whatever stick/yoke/panel I have hooked up (Warthog, Honeycomb, ect). Perfect product.

                                    A premium bit of kit.

                                    Ive had my MFG pedals a few years now and theyve moved around with me from home to home.

                                    They may seem expensive, but the amount of use I have got out of them is priceless.

                                    Really sturdy, really tough, you dont *need* metal ones, trust me!

                                    If you can stretch to it, I think theyre an essential part of a PC flyers setup.

                                    if all my peripherals were as well built and accurate as these, Id be very happy indeed.
