I am looking to buy the CH Pro Pedals (USB) package for flight simulator. Living in the U.K. does anybody know of any places that sell them cheaper than £119, or is there a way of getting them shipped from the U.S. at a discount? The U.S. price is roughly £69!
Twins,twins, everywhere.... but where are the three holers?

Maybe you know, MD-11. I posted about how to assign reverse thrust to the yoke, but no one has responded. Were you able to assign a button on the yoke, or do you just hold down F2. I didn't see anywhere on FS2K2 or the CH documentation on how to assign.

You should be able to do it through "options" on the tool bar, then open "assignments". In assignments, there is a keyboard assignment (which is the default assignment), Then a column for "joystick assignment"(in which you can assign a joystick button to a particular function. I have assigned the gear lever, flaps, and trim to my joystick (CH Pro yoke with rudder pedals) buttons.

Thanks, KALB. I've had no problems figuring how to assign buttons, but I couldn't find reverse thrust as an option. My old Logitech Wing Man gave it as an option, but I don't see how to add it to my CH yoke. This is obviously an important part of landing and with two hands on the yoke (one finger for the brake button and the other for the spoilers), I really don't have a way to press F2 as I'm landing, trying to slow down and stay tracking straight on the runway. Do you have a suggestion for a better way I can incorporate all this?

I am at my work PC right now, so I'll have to wait until I get home to figure it out. I have my yoke and pedals set up permanently on a TV tray, and I position it so the monitor is in front, but my keyboard is off my right side. On landing I use my left hand to manage the yoke, feet on the rudder pedals, and I use my right hand to hit F2. On the Boeings I use the autobrake and sometimes I don't bother with reverse thrust, esp. on longer runways.

I did assign the F2 function to one of the buttons on the yoke, but all I could get to happen was for the throttle to close. I couldn't get reverse thrust, even when holding down the button for an extended time.
