Where can i get the cheapest possible rudder pedals? I can only find models that are 80 upwards, and that is way too much for me.

Well if you can scrape to 70 ish,then you can get the Saiteks.CH will cost you 100.

I know that Fool_Trottel (usually found in Community Help) can instruct you in making a rudder pedal set-up out of an old USB joystick and a few bits of junk timber - but I don't know of a cheap pair that are manufactured.

The pedals available to buy - I use CH - become 'cheap' through use, in that after 5 years of continual use, without breakdown, you're looking at less than 20 a year for an essential piece of kit. I know that doesn't help with the initial outlay, but it is probably the most economical move in the long term.

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I have a Logitech wingman steering wheel and pedals and i use the pedals for the rudder controls.
Something similar to this http://www.ciao.co.uk/Logitech_WingMan_Wheel_and_pedals...780619#product detail (http://www.ciao.co.uk/Logitech_WingMan_Wheel_and_pedals_set__5780619#pro ductdetail)

BUT MINE IS'NT FORCE FEEDBACK.
The pedals are NOT level height,the right pedal[accelerator]= is slightly higher than the left [brakes].
The unit can't be used for toe brakes you will have to map them to something else but for a cheaper price this set up has worked for me and i would try it again if they go wrong. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
PLEASE DO MORE RESEARCH TO ENSURE THE SYSTEM WORKS ON YOUR COMPUTER AS I AM NOT A COMPUTER EXPERT.Mine is NOT the F/Feedback version so i have no idea how they work. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I have the X52 and use the pedals.

If you go on Ebay.co.uk and type in rudder pedals you will find both Saitek and CH pedals at around 80 including delivery.

There are also cheap rudder pedals from Hong Kong at 33 incuding delivery.

I'm not sure if these are any good at all - from the picture you can't tell if they will pivot correctly or if you just prod left or right.

If you do buy them, post up here a review as others may be interested.
