Been using TM Elites for 7 yrs now (last 2 1/2 via cougar).
Simpeds are my current choice for replacement if elites ever die.
For good,friendly service try http://www.rcsimulations.co.uk/
twice the price of ch tho http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Unless you are planning to fly F4AF (or other sims with single controller 'issue') then simpeds look to be the bizz- and i've not heard of any probs with them .

I've recently purchased CH pedals. After getting the input curve adjusted to my liking, they have become second nature to me for simming. I like 'em!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Still $100 US at http://shop1.outpost.com/catreq/3052

If you can afford them, SIMPEDs are absolutely lovely - sturdy, with a smooth, well-sprung action, and a simple but rugged and feelsome toe-brake action. THey're not cheap, but they're worth every penny (the manual itself is worth the price for the comedy value alone).

CH ProPedals. My first set worked for years, only replaced them because they were not USB and USB is now the standard interface.

I have both Simped and CH Pro-Pedals. I love them both, and you will do well with either one!!

I have to recommend the CH Pro-Pedals, though, simply because I use them the most and they are considerably less money. My Simpeds do not have the toe-brakes, which is really the main reason that I use the CH more often.

The Simpeds use Hall-effect sensors, which are much more expensive and much more accurate than potentiometers and should never wear out in a lifetime of use, so in that regard the simpeds are more likely to last longer (but since I hardly ever use them, I am sure they will probably last forever...LOL). The CH pedals do not use Hall-effect sensors, but in over 3 constant years of use they have never spiked once, and are rock-steady without ever having to recalibrate. That alone should say something about how well they are made. If I have any gripe about the CH pedals, it is that they are mounted too close together, but that also allows them to fit more easily under my desk. The Simpeds are much wider, but dominate my floor when not in use...which is another reason why they are relegated to the closet for now.

The CH pedals are programmable, and the software is quick and easy to use...although it is really not necessary for most applications. About the only time I have had to program them is when flying programs that are not multi-controller compatible (Joint Operations comes to mind), but most true flight simulators made in the past few years can be used without any hassle at all.

Considering the CH Pedals are about 1/3 the price, get more use, and have programming capability...I recommend them over the Simpeds.

BOTH of them are great systems. You will do well with either.

I hope this helps!
