My opinion on TrackIR...

Recommended Posts

Hello,Well, I finally got it 3 days ago. TrackIR3Pro + Vector Expansion. And my opinion is, first of all, an AWESOME PRODUCT!!! If you have fast enough PC, it puts you totally in "medias res" or as the translation would roughly go "into the middle of thing". Really gives you whole another persepctive of flying. I showed my girlfriend how to use (basically, how to fly :-) ) it yesterday, and her comment was: "Whoa, this is SO real". :-)Anyway, after all helpful posts which actually convinced me to get it, especially comments from a guy called P

I just got it and completely agree and share your enthusiasm, It's a whole new ballgame from start to end. I mean taxiing, landings and everything in between: you're actually inside the cockpit now! This is the best and only way vc's should be experienced imo.

I'm thinking of getting one soon. So this only works with virtual corkpits right? How many VC are out there? Payware and or freeware?

erm, almost all payware and most freeware planes have VC's now (of varying quality of course). I don't have trackIR, but I'd imagine it would be superb with something like RealAir's Spitfire or SF260, Dreamfleet's Archer or Flight1's 172...

No they have no real "name", just a sound, like the other vowels.Hard to explain sounds, but this is a rough guideline... ;)ah-be-ce-de-e-eff-ge-ha-ih-jot-ka-el-em-en-oh-pe-qu-err-ess-te-u-fau-we-iks-

What are you actually looking at in the way of display hardware, your monitor, or some small LCD's, or what? My chief concern is loss of image quality. Is there any? I am running at 1600x now and really enjoy this.Noel

TrackIR doesn't do anything to you display- It's an input device- like a mouse. It basically works exactly like Active Camera, except instead of moving the mouse and pressing keys to move around, you move your head.I have to add to this- TrackIR is the best thing to happen to Flight Sim since VCs. This is how it's supposed to be. I would not hesitate for a second for anyone with the cash to purchase it. You simply can't have an idea of immersive it is until you try it.
