Guys, anyone recently purchased TRACKIR? Is it any good, and does anyone know where its on special offer, discount etc. Saw a demo of it and it looked superb, but its a bit expensive. I don't mind paying out if its works as good as they say it is!

Guys, thanks for the feedback.I'm sold!! Going to order one tomorrow, sod the expense! I'll let you know what I think of it during the coming weeks. (Probably won't stop me being shot to pieces, but I'll have a superb visual experience while its happenning!) lol!! By the way, did you guys get yours from the official TRACKIR site? and how long did it take to arrive? Assuming you all live in the UK that is!

when i purchased PF, there was a coupon for $30 dollars off (US dollars)... check out this website...perhaps this is where you can get a discount yourself...

www.trackir.com/fighters (http://www.trackir.com/fighters)

Also, check-out:

sales@naturalpoint.com or 1-888-865-5535

for questions concerning this Pacific Fighters special offer.

Good luck, as it sure is expensive (i haven't justified the cost yet...)

Hi Trooper,

Well I'm not sure how good dog's dangly bits are (since no one went YUCK, I'll assume that's a good thing...LOL) but the FIRST time you do a BnZ tactic against a bomber and, you are able to follow the 'victim' throughout the whole manuever you'll get a smile that you won't be able to rub off for a week. Folk will think you just got your first sexual experience. (Well maybe not quite THAT good but DANG close)

I've had mine for 2 years and can't or WON'T fly a sim without it.

I read a recent critique on Track IR III and the reviewer now gives POINTS AGAINST a sim if Track IR isn't supported. I think it was on Sim HQ.

Good luck... I'm in the states so I don't lnow about delivery terms but it's worth the money and time.

Guys, thanks for all your help. I've just got myself Trackir, and, oh my god, its great!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Yes, it takes alot of getting used to initialy, but wow, keeping 'eyes on' an enemy aircraft is so much easier now. The only thing I've got to remember is to stop getting over excited when in contact and try to keep still! Landings now are much improved. I can get a higher seat position with the cockpit open for carrier ops, and still check all my instruments as I approach the flight deck. Trying out diff profiles now on the system itself, so thanks again for the links to some of those other profiles. As you might have guessed I'm a happy, happy Trooper at the moment!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I have TrackIR3pro and I think it's well worth the money. At first it's very hard to fly with it as it's new and needs getting used to... but once you do... it becomes very natural and I now I can't imagine flying without it.

Hi Kuky, thanks for the reply, and yes, you are absolutely right, it does take a little getting used to. I've just been taking on a couple of 'Betty's' in a P40 and it was superb to hit one, flip over inverted, look back and watch it through the top of my canopy as it spiraled down to the sea. Fantastic!! As you said, already I can't think of flying without it!

Baaaaaaaah! Hard to get used to.

Try it in the original IL2. THAT'S HARD! (There was only mouse emulation)


Just razzin ya Trooper. Glad to hear you like it. It's TRULY a marked improvement in game immersion.

I gave my dad my old CFSII. I was showing him how to set it up and I couldn't get used to the view system. Track IR has me SPOILED.

I now make sure sims are supporting Track IR.

Hi Robert, just replying to your post! I fully understand now what people were on about when they said they would never fly without it again. I've swiched it off in flight, and its only then I began to realize what an asset to flight sims this thing really is. I can honestly say, despite the cost, (and I am a sceptic), it is worth every penny! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

just ordered my TrackIR3 Pro yesterday, can't wait to get it! Too bad I couldn't get it locally. (and too bad overnight shipping is $40!)

Hey, I live in Sydney and I got my TrackIR from the US... cheaper then what I could get it for here in Australia http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif
