recommended pedals for TKOH
Hi. I am looking at getting pedals for TKOH as the joystick twist isn't the best solution according to a very helpful dev on the forums.
Could someone knowledgeable please recommend the right solution? I am not made of money but using the rotary ring on my x52 throttle is a bit hard to get right (but still better than twisting the joystick)
the 2 i have seen as being good and in my price range are the CH pedals and the Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals. EDIT - and this one as well Thrustmaster Elite Rudder Pedals
which are best? i also read that heli pedals are not autocentering - not sure what that means and whether the above 2 choices cater for that?
advice would be appreciated so i don't end up pissing my money away on the wrong choice.

As far as I know CH Products is, in general, considered as a manufacturer which builds products which last for ages. Top notch quality and as far as I know most of the testimonials praise CH Products. I recently bought the CH Pro pedals for TKOH, I don't regret it so far (they auto center btw).
The others pedals might be good too, I don't know. Also search some sim forums for experiences like those of the DCS series, Simhq etc.
thanks for the answer. i have researched them and found at that price range the CH rpo looks good. 2 concerns i have read about them are they are a bit close together and hence known as ballbreakers and they have a lip on the front - so the whole foot rests in them and not with heel on the floor and ball of foot controlling movement. also there is said to be a noticable centre point that sort of clicks. but this is all just reading.

these things cost quite a bit of money but surprised at how few proper reviews there are for them for controlling helicopters (which i guess i pretty different to the pedals on an airplane)
Nice... gotto keep watch on this one, already considering grabbing the X52 Pro, and was also thinking about IF and WHAT pedals
Saitek Pro flight pedals are waaayy better than the CH pedals. I've had both, CH pedals were uncentered about a year in which was terrible. Saitek is just higher quality build overall.
Also, the CH pedals seem to be made for racing games AND flying games, the freaking pedals are like ones you'd find in a toyota.

I use the full Saitek Pro setup consisting of X52Pro and Pro flight pedals saitek quality today is on par with CH, its just the luxury fanboys that still tell otzher they need 400€ CH or 500€ thrustmaster hardware to enjoy Sims...thats simply not true, the "cheap"260€ Saitek combo does the job as well...and mine lasts since 2008 without any problems for now.

Yea, the closes U get besides purpus buildt are the combat-pedals from saitek coz you rest your heels on the floor.
I don't get how you put your heels on the floor on the saitek pedals:
i think its the saitek combat pedals being referred to.http://www.saitek.com/uk/prod/compedals.html love to be able to afford those. too expensive to justify for a game right now.
