Will CH Pro Rudder Pedals work with Saitek Yoke & Thrott

I`m fairly new to FSX and read a year or so ago on some Sim Forum that it`s not recommeded to use two different brands of flight controls ...???
My son mentioned to me he saw a set of CH Pro Rudder Pedals on sale here in Canada for about $125 with free shipping, and was thinking of getting these for my up coming birthday (63 years...!!!)
I told him to hold off until I checked with some of the experienced Flight Sim experts on this site...
I appreciate any comments or opinions...
Thanks in advance...!!!

I wouldn't go out and spend $125 on the pedals when for (maybe) a few dollars more on Amazon you could get the correct ones.
I have the Saitek yoke and pedals and am very pleased with them.

If you already had them I'd say work with them but don't go out and buy them.

I use the Seitek X52 (not the pro) for stick and throttle while using a Logitech MoMo's throttle and brake pedals for the rudder. I just tuck the steering wheel behind the desk. Works like a champ, so if you have pieces like that then yes, you can mix/match.

Thanks guys...I think I`ll go with the Saitek Pedals for about the same price...
I forgot to mention in the orginal post that for some reason I thought CH Products were somewhat better than Saitek...???
I am completely happy with my Saitek Yoke & Throttles so I`ll stick with Saitek...
Thanks again guys for your input...

I have the Saitek X52 Pro - throttle, stick (not yoke) and pedals.
Never had a problem with any part, very reliable. I have in the past read several complaints about the stick being flimsy and falling apart... but I guess it depends on how you treat your equipment and I should imagine that the stick would take a battering if you fly a lot of on-line combat Very Happy

However this won't concern you as you are using a yoke.

Regarding the pedals, wars have been fought in various forums re CH versus Saitek. I opted for the Saitek because the pedals have enough space between them to sit comfortably without putting a strain on your ankles.
I've read claims that the CH pedals are more realistic (being closer together) when compared to Cessna pedals... true or not, I wouldn't know.
In the end, I am 'flying' a simulator on my computer - not a real Cessna.

Oh, perhaps I should mention that I use the exact same set-up for both FSX and FS2004.
