It works about as well as any other aircraft,Once you use it, you never go back, although if you use the hat fitting, every time you start FSX, you have to press F12 to resetthe view,but I can't see ever going back to hat switch again.

TrackIR 5 + EZDok 1.17 = Marriage made in the Flightsim Heaven. "What therefore the Great PC up there has joined together, Let no PC put asunder"

I'm a recent PMDG & TrackIR customer and here are my impressions so far:

  • Going back to joystick hat-view is painful. I've gone TrackIR-less a view times and it's like part of my body is missing because I can't look around naturally. (although I wear progressive lenses and things get out-of-focus easily when I turn my head. Time for a pair of computer glasses - it's hell to get old).
  • I use the "Seth - Flight" profile which helps counter my head drift and jitter while trying to click a small target (like Alt Intv on the other side of the MCP).
  • I sometimes have to reset the view with F12 to adjust my view up and down. If I've been looking up at the overhead I find that I can't look down as far before the view locks. So if I know I'll be looking down, I first look up slightly and hit F12. That resets the view to center and then I can look down and around with ease. And I do the converse for up.
  • During pre-flight I toggle to the overhead view with A (3 times) and look around and zoom in from the between-the-seats-view, rather than try to do it from the captain or FO seat view. Just easier for my bad eyes.
  • When I do look up from seat view I sometimes switch to FO view to access the right side of the panel, especially the higher (aft) switches.
  • I only have the passive (reflective) hat clip. During the day I have to place a 5x7 box behind my chair to keep the light from the window behind me from blinding the camera. (not direct sunlight either; just daylight) I don't know if the TrackClip Pro with active LED's would help but I don't use a headset, so I don't now how that would work out. I'd also like to know if the active LED's provide better head range before loss-of-signal.
  • Great. Based on the other comments, now I have to check out EZCA. If I keep this binge up my wife will try to collect on my life insurance soon.

I have the Track IR4 and rarely used it. Then recently I read about EZDok and finally gave it a go. Never looked back, I now run the TIR5 software on my TIR4 using the Seph Profile and EZDok 1.17. I now use the TIR4 all the time and couldn`t imagine life without it and EZDok, So much so and feeling that comfortable with my peaked sports cap on with TIR4 T piece on it I very nearly wore it to the local shop and back but just caught it in time as I went to step out the door and quickly swapped it for my normal peaked cap with no TIR 4 T piece on. As if that wasn`t bad enough I picked up the Wii remote to continue a phone call with my son, only realising when I put it to my ear. D`oh! Steve

Hi guys, does it mean that TRACKIR doesn't really make it without EZDOK? I always thought that it could live alone. Confused.gif

You can adjust the panning speed so that 45 degrees of head movement = 90 degrees panning, or 30 deg head movement, or possibly even less. EDIT: I generally use a faster rate for GA aircraft. 45 deg movement in the Cessna has me looking back toward the tail. In big stuff like the NGX it's set a lot slower. All I care about seeing are the panels & side windows so those are pretty close to my limits of movement.
