Does Track-ir provide a tactical advantage in sims?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So iam wondering if I schould drop $150 for this little device, Iam not a competitive gamer I just dont enjoy being shot down in War-Thunder every 10 seconds lol. If you love flight-sims the way i do I think its worth it to invest only beacuse it gives you the 6dof movement, better view in dogfights, better for recording and making videos and so forth........ I always found something missing from my games, I downloaded countless amounts of add-ons but something was still missing and I could not put my finger on it~
My questions are is there a big diffrence between the 4th and 5th track-ir , whats the major improvement in the 5th and where in the world can i go to buy it other then Amazon? I perfer to go pick it up in person if possible? Thank you guys for any feedback and as usual I appricate everyones comments. Take care
The games I would be using it for are these- Flaming Cliffs 2 and 3, Arma 2, Fsx sometimes ( not fun anymore since they killed the gamespy server) Dcs world and other add-ons such as P51 Mustang, A10 c Warthog, War-Thunder as mentioned, Wings Of Pray, Hawx 1 and 2 I know they are crappy titles but still..... X-plane 10? Thats just to name a few. Oh and Cliffs of dover sorry. thumb.gif People with Track-IR i wanna hear from you 1st please! tongue.gif

Have it and love it. Whilst I use it for Arma, its invaluable when I hop in a helo - the ability to just turn my head to look at either the gauges, or out of the aircraft without hitting any keys for other views is a huge timesaver and helps keep your situational awareness at its best.

You can buy it through the manufacturers webpage, and if you look up Shack-Tac, the owner of the sight has a discount code for the whole shooting match which can save you a few bucks.

Sweet~! Thank you Panther, plus 1 rep for you sir! Have you tried any other games with it maybe? Maybe Dirt 3 by any chance?

Yep - It will work with all the Arma Mods since its using the same engine.
