Jeff. That's a good solution. Is it just the perspective of the camera, or is the right pedal taller than the left? You can also extend the master arm or move its attachment point as described above.

The right one is higher but I am not sure if the height difference is in the brake pedal, the rudder pedal or a combination of the two. I adjusted the master cylinder linkage out first but I like the "feel" of it this better. The linkage on the right is adjusted out several turns further than the left. I just used what I had on hand. I will find a better looking solution if I ever decide to sell the airplane.

I know from experience that working down in the toe box is difficult, but I do like Cubes idea of changing the pedal geometry to fit your leg length and toe angle
