Customer Reviews


I thought there was no way this thing would be able to pick up the Saitek Cessna Yoke, Rudder pedals w/Toe Breaks or TPM module. Turns out it does and it works flawlessly! It helped me troubleshoot a friends rudder yaw control and he exchanged the pedals with confidence it wasn’t just a software issue. $0.99 is a steal.


It’s a simple app that does exactly as it says on the tin. Worked fine for my X52 and Pro Flight Rudder Pedals. It’s a niche app, but it fills the niche well.
