View Full Version : How and where are the toebrakes?
12-31-2001, 08:43 PM
OK, it makes sense that toe brakes are moved by the toes. I am planning on getting the CH Pro peddals [http://www.flightsim.com/dcforum/DCForumID10/9662.html], but I see no toe brakes on the pictures. Do they come included, or do I have to buy them separately? Do I need a second pport if I am using the USB peddals? How about Analog peddals?
It would also help if you could describe where they go, and how they exactly work. A picture would be nice too :)

LAST EDITED ON Dec-31-01 AT 10:10PM (EDT)[p]CH USB ProPedals Have the toe brake function activated by pressing a pedal down and rudder activated by sliding the pedals forward. In this picture the rudder is is deflected to the right and the right "toe brake" is activated.
Second picture is of the CH ProPedals Unit.
You can only have the working toe brakes with the CH USB Model.
They will work great with FS2002, you'll have progressive brakes (the more pressure you apply the more break force you'll get). They can also be made to work with FS2000, but the progressive feature will not be available.
Hope that helps!

I want to set the record straight!
You can have the Analog CH pedals and not have to hook up a joystick to trick it, And as a added bonus I got Left and right brakes.
This is all accomplished with a patch cable that turns the CH pedals (analog) into a 4 axis joystick and allows you to use the other Y and X axis for the left and right brake.
Very simple to do and works great.
It's a little more complicated then this but if you would like to give it a try e-mail me and I'll send you the schematic, and instructions.

Not the hair....the size! Jeez, what do you bench, 450?

This is a great idea!! wish I thought of it. The great things about this is that it gets rid of the second analog port which consumes gobs of CPU time as well eating a PCI slot!! Big time cudos on this one.
One modification I would make: you need a button on this if you want to calibrate it!

LAST EDITED ON Jan-02-02 AT 11:23AM (EDT)[p]Funny that you said button!
i am going to put a buton on the cable so that setting it up will be a snap.
Also I'm going to make a cable with a box that will have 4 buttons and a pot for the 4th axis (trim,prop,or proppler. ect)
And I would like to add that I am working on making this cable able to hook up to USB so you don't have to use the analog port.
With that free you can add even more little goodies to the game!
That's it for now, got any ??? e-mail me

enter toe brakes into the library searcher. the schematics are posted there. Email Scott, he is willing to build the cables for you.
