What works...what doesn't?

I thought the same thing until I tried TrackIR. It’s like you’re literally in the cockpit. It’s utterly useless to go back. 

Now wait until you try VR

I tried VR a few months ago. I couldn't wait to get that Scuba mask off my head,

You're missing out then. 🙂

No, I'm not. I had one some years ago and sold it. Prefer to fly without it.

Anybody else having issues with the Caravan? 

I loaded the Caravan just to try setting up the condition lever. I didn't try to fly, but there certainly was a VC. I don't have any Caravan mods installed and just used the default livery.

I was able to load up the default unmodded Caravan as well.  Looking like it's the mod that's the issue.

Have fun, pressing hot keys and using hat switch, nothing wrong with it.

I am on approach in the DC6 to CYYZ, and guess what, the Track IR turns off on short final. After landing I looked, and there is no command to turn Track IR on, except to go into the camera menu and flip the switch from off to on.

You can assign a key to it, so that you don’t need to use the mouse to go in the menu to toggle that setting. Not ideal but better

Then try an index with fov of 120. no mask effect at all

Exactly what menu setting are you referring to? I am not aware of it.

Thx,

Guessing you don’t have a hat switch? Been simming 20+ years and have never wanted TrackIR even in combat sims. I just use the hat switch 

Happy for you. And I don't use VR, so the heck with those guys too, right?

Is anyone using OpenTrack and an old phone with faceID? I moved to that over TrackIR but curious if it uses the same TrackIR logistics within the sim and is also bugged.

I've been reading over this thread (out on a short trip until tomorrow and haven't updated yet), and wonder myself if there's something positive regarding this messy SU7.

You’re kidding right? It’s like wearing a scuba mask. You need a fov of 180 and even then it’s still heavy.

I just did a test flight in the Cessna and lost all rudder control after landing so couldn't taxi. The rudder just flutters and then returns to neutral even when trying to hold full left or right.

Thought it was the assistance settings which I had to turn off mid-flight as it was doing weird things to the controls but they were all off by the time I'd landed. Strange.

Have you tried restarting the sim.  I had the exact same thing happen to me aft SU5 installed.  Not sure what the underlying cause was, but after a restart the rudder control was back to normal.
