EXCELLENT craftsmanship!

you should start your own business!

Those look a lot nicer than my CH peds, always thought the stirrups were far too close together.

Original designer is Ala11_Baloo as i mentioned in the first post. He made exellent instructions and that was the main reason i dared to start this project.

Nice, but some of our Spanish speaking friends on the boards would make alot of people happy if they translated these into english...

07-16-2006, 06:22 AM
Im not Spanish speaking either, so I had to make some translation in the beginning. There´s all kind of dictionaries in web. This is a fast translation to English, sorry for misspelling etc.

This list was all I needed. Pictures were quite descriptive. I made some changes of my own €"for example replaced pinion gears and used belt gears instead, but basic construcion remains. Oh.. Toebrakes use pinion gears like described in the list.


-Base sheet: 500 x 300 x 25 mm (plywood)
-2 x pedals (2,5 mm steel)
-2 x base for pedals (2,5 mm steel)
-T-bar 400 x 45 x 10 mm (wood €"harder the better)
-Secondary bar 400 x 45 x 10 mm (wood €"harder the better)
-2 x bar for centering 80 x 20 x 10 mm (wood €"harder the better)
-2 x bolt 8 x 100 mm + 2 x locknut
-4 x bolt 6 x 25 mm + 4 x locknut
-2 x bolt 8 x 50 mm + 2 x locknut
-washers 8 & 6 mm
-4 x draw-spring 50 x 10 x 1 mm
-8 x bolt (for springs) 3 x 25 mm + 16 x nut
-1 x draw-spring (centering) 30 x 10 x 1 mm
-3 x pots of your choice
-microphone cable 4 m
-3 x gear 40€"45 mm 60-70 teeth
-3 x gear 15-20 mm 20 teeth
-4 x ball bearing for 6mm bolts
-2 x ball bearing for 8 mm bolts

I think costs were about 45 e. It depends were you can buy it and if you can use some old stuff hanging around. Ballbearings were the biggest expense, about 30 e.

If you have to buy absolutely everything, add 10-20 e.

I agree with the others, the workmanship is outstanding. Did you do the metal work?

07-16-2006, 01:08 PM
Bravo! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I wish i had those pedals... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/halo.gif

They look a lot like the new Saitek pedals. They do indeed look like the 109/190 pedals.

Saitek Rudder Pedals.

Pimpalicious pedals man, good job they look soo nice.

Thx R_Targethttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Yes, i did the metal work. You can get the idea in that thread i posted earlier.

I´ve seen those Saitek pedals, but didn´t remember how 109 it was. It´s allways good to go back to basics. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

I´m test driving at the moment and there´ve been some issues like i expected. Luckily the construction is quite rugged and it´s easy to fine tune.

It also takes some time to get used to large movement after CH pro. I´ve had some difficulties in the smooth transition around 50 % (centered). It must be a software issue. Either MS FFB2 (pedals are connected to a circuit board) or IL2 have some kind of dead zone and it comes obvious when having larger pedal movements. Anyway, im sure i can take care of it in hardware settings -or just get used to it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

5 stars for design - hope the pedals work as nice as they look. One drawback is that they are setup for old style gameport connection. Any chance they will be upgraded to USB?

07-17-2006, 05:14 PM
Just changed center spring to a rubber band. It´s from a mc inner tyre. I adjusted it much tighter than the original draw spring. It´s just great!! Problem i mentioned above is gone and feel is amazing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif

GreyFox5: Mine are USB. Generally You can connect your controls where ever you want. You can use some old usb joystick and make use of it´s analog x&y axes, or you can buy one of those commercial usb circuit boards made for this kind of projects. If you know how to solder, you can do it. That´s what i know about electronics. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I recently learned to use this electric meter or whatever you call ithttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif and I wouldn´t recommend you to start any project whithout it. It´s cheap, easy to use and leaves you out of many troubles. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

These pedals are connected to MSFF2-joystick (USB). I had two free axes (twist rudder and throttle).
