    Yeah....I no longer have any faith in them. I do hope that they come through someday though. It will be a happy surprise.

    If they don't come thru just consider it a bad investment choice. I'm surprised there's not more ripoffs on cloud funding sites unless there are and I don't know of them. Its very easy to take peoples money and very hard for them to do anything about it if they don't deliver. Especially when they draw things out to the point you can't even get your credit card company to help you out any longer.

    I have been waiting a lot for many of the kickstarters I have backed. They all delivered somehow what planned, though with severe delays. I think it will be the same for feelvr. They will deliver when they will feel the product is ready to be delivered . It would be worse delivering something not ready that would create worse impact than delivering late

    I really hope that the wheel will be delivered in 2019, backers deserve it....and I am sure some of them already bought other DDwheel and will not wait FeelVR, but at least will have the product which was paid in advance...

    According to the kickstarter page they are not going to ship anything piecemeal, but rather wait until all pedals are finished and ship all at once. Not sure about the wheel as it has been delayed again for some reason but I would assume that they will do the same thing.

    I have been keeping an eye on this for a while.

    I have backed a few kick starter projects in the past that was not successful, I was thinking of backing the project but when I saw the missed road map dates I'm a bit hesitant. However I will be keeping an eye on this project as i'm really interested in this.

    Ok, pricewise it is in the range of fanatec pedals. Thought they would be cheaper. Also little trust in de customer service and warranty.

    Agreed
    If they're the same price at the proven and trusted Fanatec V3's then ther'e NO WAY I'd choose the Feel VR pedals over those.
    From the reviews so far it seems that they were built to a price-point much lower than they are going to be selling for now.
    No thanks.

    My thoughts exactly.. Heusinkveld pedals are very nice but I find it personally hard to justify double the price over the fanatec v3 pedals. They seem well worth the money for what you get.

    What other options? €200-300 is a good price range.
