Pedals

Actually I am using the ProPedals from CH-Products, but this is only a temporary arrangement. Since I intend to make a two seat cockpit, the pedals should be linked together. I think the best way to achieve this is to make the pedals by myself.

Yoke

Currently using very cheap joysticks from Saitek. This are the ones which most resembles an Airbus sidestick.

Throttles

My current throttle quadrant is made by Advanced Graphic Technologies. They look really nice and I am quite happy with them, the only disadvantage beeing that they don't have the detentes the original throttles have. I think I will do my own throttles for the next version of my sim.
