                                                                The Eze-Mod
The CH Rudder Pedals created by CH Products has been a popular choice of many flight simulator enthusiast for years. The rudder pedals control the yaw of the aircraft in the simulator just as they do in real world aircraft.  Separate rudder pedal controls allow more realistic ground handling of the aircraft as most general aviation aircraft use the rudder pedals for turns on the ground.

The CH Rudder Pedals are a great choice of pedals in their price range, however a problem for myself using the CH Rudder Pedals is the angle and the short distance between the pedals that cause fatigue in my legs and torso. I also have to consciously think about moving the pedals as well. The Eze-Mod was created to solve these problems. The Eze-Mod mount places the pedals at a more realistic angle simulating real aircraft rudder movement and operation. A metal skid plate allows smooth effortless foot movement.  Pads are placed on the pedals for a more comfortable realistic feel.  Following is useful some information on our Eze-Mod kit.

Realistic Movement

The heel of the foot rests on the metal skid plate the ball of the foot rests on the lower rubber pad. Sliding or rocking the feet produces effortless almost subconscious precise rudder movement. The Eze-Mod gives the rudder pedals the same feel and function as some units priced at $200 to $300 more.

 

  

                              
Sliding or rocking the feet produces effortless almost subconscious precise rudder movement. Rudder application is smooth and natural and becomes second nature. You concentrate more on flying and less on thinking about moving the rudder.

                                 
Braking action on the pedals is accomplished by raising toes to upper pedal and applying pressure just as it is done in many General aviation aircraft. This is a fantastic kit that will improve your rudder control and overall aircraft control. The Eze-Mod is priced to be a super value deal. We hope this article answers any questions you may have before purchasing the Eze-Mod.
