Macintosh Compatibility

I'd like to add that I am on a Macintosh. Although you need to calibrate the pedals on a windows machine it is done very easily and only needs done once. If you have a Mac and an available windows box by all means get these pedals, you won't regret it!

    Functionality is what counts

    Functionality is what counts. I have been using rudder pedals for over 20 years in flight simulators. These rudder pedals give me the most precise control I have ever had in my gaming experiences. I don't care if they are not aluminum or metal. I do like the fact of the simplistic build and the ease of replacing parts if or when they
    fail in the future. I see these pedals lasting a very long time. They are worth every penny to me.

      Some trouble during setup, otherwise fantastic

      I recommend plugging everything in before adjusting pedal angle. I had some trouble calibrating and had to do a bunch of troubleshooting to get them working.

      Once they’re up and running they are absolutely fantastic though. Well worth the money.

        Invest in an MFG CrossWind Flight Simulator Rudder Peddle.

        If I died tomorrow, the CrossWind Rudder Peddle gets planted with me as well! What a marvelous development in flight simulation hardware. (Of course, if I think of it in time, I’ll leave it to one my lucky family members in the Trust Fund!)

        Slick design features and technologies, ease of assembly and associated calibration applications as well as top notch service after the sale! (I made a mistake configuring the rudder peddle and Milan Šimundža was very patient and explained exactly what needed to be done to correct the error that I made.) Thank You very much for that too!

        If the investment seems excessive to you, imagine the total cost of replacing/repairing similar hardware that will fail over the problem free lifetime of an MFG Crosswind Flight Simulator Rudder Peddle. If you still think the cost of ownership is too high, I suggest researching a second or third employment opportunity. Buy Right the First Time!

        Mr

        Beautifully engineered, sturdy, customisable, and deadly accurate high end product.
        Only one criticism, when placing one foot on the rudder, it tilts unless stabilised by bolting it to the floor, or board.

          Great rudder pedals!

          All adjustments were easy, thanks to the tutorial videos. The quality of the pedals is great, they are very smooth and accurate.

              Not aluminum, no documentation, the price is high for plastic, y

              I bought it from EU, as all others. I would wanted to have them here in USA – I am sure that there are many that will want to buy them but the wait it’s a no no for many.
              The product functions as desire with X Plane 11, no drivers needed and no configuration – just an easy calibration (the app knowing the limits of the controls).
              There were no manuals or instructions on how to install anything on it. A quick reference guide should have been made available in print on what needs to be connected and how. There are 2 wires from the pedals coming in to a controller unit but I did not see a color code plug or diff plug, so a user can easily cross the wire and plug the wrong wire in the wrong port on the controller, what if I put them backwards, will it still work?
              I have a part that came with it, and I don’t know what is used for – again that paper printed out mentioning what I could use it for, it would have been beneficial.
              The material made out of it, it’s black plastic with a white sheet of laminated plastic layer on top. From the looks of it and the price, I was expecting Croatian aluminum to be made of, instead plastic. If I knew that it’s made of plastic, I would have order the black one instead of the white, considering the fact that there lamination of the white is chipped off during the manufacturing – drilling/CNCing the material. In addition the cost is too high for the thick plastic put together.
              Moreover, the pedals angle is too low, I would want to adjust it as right now, if I press the brake all the way, my leg is flat, where if I use my car pedals or look at the airplane rudders it’s not the same, and again no documentation for that adjustment.
              The device servers the purpose but I the cost is too high. I will say they need to revamp the manufacturing to use molds instead of CNCing, and use aluminum and not plastic.
              The unit is light too, it will move as I push the pedals, so I need to attach it to a platform of some sort that has more weight, so it will not move the entire unit.
              I will recommend this to a friend because of the functionality, but will definitely not buy it this product if another one was available in aluminum.

                sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

                Ich schreibe die Bewertung mal in Deutsch, da es sicher auch viele deutsche Interessenten gibt.
                Die Pedale sind sehr gut verarbeitet und sind vor allem sehr präzise. Auch die vielen Einstellmöglichkeiten (Kraft, Winkel,...) gefallen mir sehr gut und sind so bei handelsüblichen Pedalen kaum zu finden. Ich stand vor der Entscheidung mir Force-Feedback-Pedale von Brunner (von denen habe ich den wirklich genialen Yoke) oder andere Qualitätspedale zu kaufen.
                Die Crosswind-Pedale haben meiner Meinung nach das beste Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Ich fliege hauptsächlich A2A-GA-Fleiger, dafür gefallen sie mir sehr gut. Auch wenn sie nicht so 100% realistisch sind, aber für das Steuern mit aufgesetzter Hacke gibt es für diese Pedale im Netzt ja eine Lösung.
                Über die Haltbarkeit kann ich noch nicht viel sagen, aber sie machen einen sehr stabilen EIndruck.
                Allerdings sollten die Pedale unbedingt am Boden verankert werden, sonst kippen sie beim Aufsetzen eine Fußes sofort um. Dafür gebe ich aber keinen Abzug, da ich sie eh am Boden festschrauben wollte. Dafür sind in der Bodenplatte der Pedale die Löcher bereits vorhanden.
                Für weitere Fragen stehe ich unter xmapsy.com gerne zur Verfügung.

                  smooth


                  Beautiful to look at (shame they sit under my desk!), smooth and accurate in operation, very comfortable underfoot too.

                  However adjusting the brake resistance is frustrating, Trying to reduce the stiffness I've already damaged the bracket with a piece chipping off around the first hole. The difference in weighting is so small however I wish that I hadn't tried, I'll leave it as it is now so as not to risk breaking something else. A pity since the tension adjustment for the rudder axis is so simple and easy to adjust. If an improved design for the brakes was availabe I'd happily pay if it could be retrofitted. Very fast delivery!

                    Five-Star Quality MFG Pedals!

                    Very easy to set up in FSX-SE. The airplane now feels very fluid. It's almost like learning how to sim-fly again--but you'll never go back to a joy-stick again! Be sure to watch the MFG videos.

                      Best buy ever

                      Never thought it would make this much of a difference. But it does. Flying in VR comes to life.. Great for instruction (i.e. taildraggers) too.
                      Build quality is fantastic. Delivery was prompt.
                      Highly recommended.

                        I've had them for a week now. They're great. Sturdy, high quality. Make a huge different for my rudder work on helicopters like the Huey. And jets that require a lot of rudder input.

                          Owner

                          Very pleased with the Crosswind V2. Went together and worked without any issues. I had hoped it would be more stable when you put your feet on the pedals, but it tips over if you just put up one foot at a time. To solve this, I mounted the V2 to a 24" x 24" piece of 1/2" plywood - perfect solution - now rock solid!

                            Funktionsweise

                            Hier eine Wertung in Deutsch. Das MFG Crosswind ist sehr solide Verbaut. Er reagiert auf kleinste Ausschläge. Die Bremspedale sind etwas schwierig zu verstellen. Hier sollte man aufpassen. Auch sind diese etwas schwer zu betätigen. Man sollte hier etwas verändern um die Feder etwas mehr verstellen zu können. Wichtig ist, dass der MFG auf einer Platte / Boden verschraubt wird. Die Standhaftigkeit ist verheerend. Daher auch einen Punkt Abzug.

                              Class Act Design & Engineering !

                              Bought the MFG Crosswind V2 (off-white in colour), S/N 5426 in 2018 and use them exclusively in DCS, racking up well over 450 hours of flying hours. They work, and they work very well.

                              The thoughtful and sturdy(!) design is a piece of craftsmanship and engineering marvel that is becoming quite rare nowadays it seems.

                              With the Crosswinds, together with my VKB Modern Combat Grip Pro Flightstick and Virpil MongooseT-50 Throttle Control System, I need little else to keep on flying many for many more hours.

                              Plus owner Milan is just a bloody swell gent, answering all and any questions and concerns I had regarding spring tensions, Cams and size of the foot pedals, given my UK size 13,5 UK feet.

                              Milan's Crosswinds are, arguably, the very best in the Flight SIM industry.

                              Have recommended it to 2 co-pilots, and will continue to do so to others given my personal experience with the Crosswinds.

                                  S/N 3695 purchased on Feb/Mar 2017.

                                  500+ hours of use and no problems at all. Smooth and joy to use. I fly multiple flight and space simulators and demand high precision, reliability and consistency. (DCS. P3D, Elite Dangerous).

                                  The cost sets an expectation and the MFG Crosswind V2 have delivered and keep on delivering. This is a case of money well spent and it's worth the effort to save the extra money to buy them for sure.

                                    Best Pedals Ever

                                    I have always used rudder pedals for flight sims, ever since setting up a PC-XT back in 1986. And I've tried every major brand of controller since that time.

                                    My Crosswind pedals (s/n 0580) are absolutely the very best pedals that I have ever used for flight sims.

                                      I use them for several years and they not only show no signs of wear but enjoy me as much as at the beginning. Or maybe even more because after a year I began to experiment with curves, and that turned amazing pedals into divine pedals :))).

                                        Service was great

                                        Bought a set of these years ago along with an extension (definitely check them out).
                                        Love these pedals. Very smooth and accurate. Comfortable to use and I easily mounted them in my custom pit. Just what I wanted.
                                        Hadn't used them for a while and I was having an issue with the calibration. I sent an email and got a very quick response which fixed the issue (a loose connection I had missed). Thanks MFG - awesome service added to pedals I love. Can't be beaten.
                                        I would be a repeat customer.... but I'm so happy with my pedals I have no reason to change and they are now as good as the day I got them.

                                          I don't remember exactly when I got my Crosswinds, S/N 1204. Probably at least 3 or so years ago. What I do remember is that they have not given me one issue the entire time I have been using them other than that I don't really want to stop using them.

                                          Seriously, for anything near these in price they can't be beat. Very adjustable and with the different cam profiles and spring positions you can get them feeling just how you want.

                                          These pedals are the total package. They are a perfect companion to any sim.

                                            5 years and still going strong

                                            I purchased my set with serial number 0161 in 2014, and I still love these pedals. They work exactly as advertised, giving a high degree of precision when controlling DCS modules like the A-10, the UH-1H and pretty much everything else DCS has to offer. Also looking forward to some Cessna fun in the upcoming MSFS 2020.

                                            They're pretty flexible/configurable and well thought out.

                                            The only downside is that people who prefer heels on the ground won't be too happy, but AFAIK new footrests are in the making. Other than that, there's not a bad thing I can say about these pedals.

                                            Nowadays there's more competition in the pedal market, but honestly, if my MFGs broke or were stolen, I wouldn't hesitate to get another set right away. But probably in black this time, it just looks more badass. :)
