Damper kit for self-installation on VIRPIL pedals.

Modified for VIRPIL pedals (one axle / three axles) to make life easier for helicopter enthusiasts.
The refinement is a damping mechanism with adjustable force. With the loading levers removed, the pedals remain in the position in which you put them, the position change occurs with a force that can be adjusted. This improves control accuracy, there is no need to oppose the loading mechanism, the legs do not get tired, there is no need to use the trimmer and return to the center of the pedal. And most importantly, you always see and feel how your pedals are deflected. The pedals on the Mi-24 work in a similar way. Suitable for all types of helicopters.

Loading levers and aircraft springs can be retained. With this use, you have an effort to turn the pedals already at small angles from the center, the pendulum effect is completely eliminated when the pedals are suddenly released, and parasitic movements when shifting the legs on the pedals are practically excluded.

20 euros + shipping.

I would like to express my deep gratitude to Roman (Baur) for providing them with the necessary dimensions and to Andrey (Андрей 834) for using his pedals for refinement and testing.

I'd just like to report that I am very pleased with this upgrade for my Virpil pedals (with toe-brakes). The install was easy and my helicopter flying instantly improved. The dial gives you the flexibility to quickly add\remove the damper effect at will and actually improves the strength of the pedals, so there isn't a downside with this mod. I highly recommend it for all VIrpil owners!

During the install process I even found a couple Virpil screws that had started to back themselves out. It explains the rotational pedal slop I've started to experience. I cranked them down with a couple drops of threadlocker so I don't need to worry about them going forward.

10/10

This looks great! Just curious, how would this differ in feel from a hydraulic dampener?

I used a hydraulic damper and didn't like that after a short rest you have to put extra effort into moving it. There is no such effect here.

Sounds good to me! How do I go about purchasing one?
