What is the distance between the rudder peddles on a stick controlled aircraft such as a Dominator? Cessna aircraft can have the peddles almost side by side because of the yoke type roll and pitch control conversely a joystick control must allow for full movement of the stick Between the legs of the pilot. Is there a rule of thumb or minimal distance? My control rods are not fabricated so I can’t sit in the seat and determine the maximum side to side deflection. Just guessing 12” to 16” of separation from inside to inside of the feet seems more than adequate.
