Nice pedals, but I'm thinking of getting a set of VKB pedals as I'm hoping they can be installed permanently into my 'rig' in front of Fanatec v3 pedals. At present I have to remove/replace my CH pedals whenever I want to fly/drive.

Anyone using the VKB pedals in a similar setup?

Have you looked at the MFG Crosswinds?

Thanks for the suggestion. The MFG's are a wonderful set of pedals, but the two factors that have made me lean towards the VKB pedals are, price and size.

On price it is 189 Euro's versus 320 Euros.

As I want to mount these pedals in front of my racing pedals I believe the low profile of the VKB's is less likely to interfere with the operation of the racing pedals. I'm not 100% on this, which is why I was hoping someone else had done something similar and could advise.

P.S. I'm away for a long weekend but will be back for Ops on Tuesday.
