I was having a look at different wheels to replace my faulty g29 as I'm not sure if it's still inwarranty (I'm fed up with it too, it's been very temperamental) and I was looking at the Saitek farming panel on the side. I noticed that they do a set of wheels and pedals Heavy Equipment Wheel, Pedals and Side Panel Control Deck Bundle for PC | Saitek.com and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them. My first thoughts are that the wheel looks very small, but I suppose if I get the farm panel I probably won't need the on wheel buttons and I could replace the wheel with something larger, maybe a bus one from a breakers yard. Anyway, I'm digressing so if you've got any experience or thoughts on it I'd love it.

Apparently the Saitek wheel is crap. I'd stay away from it if I was you, cheap plastic rubbish.

If you're unsatisfied with Logitech build quality, you could always try Thrustmaster.

Remember to go for 900 degree steering as a minimum.

That Saitek Heavy Equipment setup looks ideal for OMSI, especially with the side control panel. If the quality is as poor as other posters have said, that's a shame
