    Review: Thrustmaster Pendular Rudder System

    The rudder may be somewhat overlooked as an aircraft control but having proper rudder pedals can actually make your flight simulator time much more real. Airline pilot Tony Vallillo puts the Thrustmaster Pendular Rudder System to the test -- the first time he's had simulator rudders -- and finds they add much more to the experience than expected. Though probably too pricey for some, they are well worth it for the serious sim pilot.
