Can anybody in the UK refer me to a good reliable online retailer that sells TrackIR, preferably one that accepts Switch and one from whom you actually bought this product?

In addition, are there different types of TrackIR and if so which one is most suitable to IL2?

I bought mine from E-Dimensional.

However their site is down for maintenance at the moment but bookmark it anyway : http://www.e-dimensional.com/

They were a lot less than the 299 pric tag on some sites so I would wait if you can - or maybe call them - their E-Mail is on the site but no phone number I'm afraid. Hope this helps - you won't regret buying TrackIR /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I prefer "Anarchy in the UK"; it fits in with the music much better.

Enough revisionism, already!/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

RC Simulations are pretty much the Daddy in the UK Flight Sim peripheral field, from what I see. Real depth of epertise and a good track record.

Three hundred notes for Track IR!? God almighty, what band of brigands is charging that?

I bought mine from www.rc-simulations.com (http://www.rc-simulations.com).
I lived in the same City as them. And I went around and picked it up My track-IR once they told me they had it in stock.

This a great family company. The guy that owns it is a real enthusiast, he wanted to show me how he was building a real cockpit with projecter , for FS2002/3 at the time. His wife was on the computer and she had some little dogs in a basket by her feet. I went up with my friend, and we came out saying that they were just so nice people, really genuinely chatty friendly people, as real Bristolians are. It's great they are running this business which obviously started as there hobby and still is.


Give them your support. They do out hobby a favour.

I put my vote in for RCSimulations as well. I did the same thing as Pye since I also live in Bristol. Bob is a really nice guy and, yes, he showed my his cockpit as well and the little dogs came out to greet me :-) He also showed me the beta of MS FS2004 and MAN IS THAT SOME EYE CANDY! Absolutely amazing. If only IL-2 was looked and felt as good as that!

The TrackIR costs just under 100. The more expensive versions seen floating around might be the smart-NAV which is basically the same thing but with different functionalities since it's designed for people who can't use a mouse. Since it's for medical purposes, I suspect that is why the price tag is higher.

I was in RC Simulations last week getting some CH Pro pedals. The guy, Bob I presume, seems a really nice chap, shame I didn't have more time. I didn't realise they had the simulator set-up either, it looks excellent. I'm only 10 miles away in Bath so will try and get back there soon.

Not only are they selling TrackIR at a reasonable price, the pedals were much cheaper than elsewhere in the UK
as well.

Cheers!

Edit: Yes you can pay with Switch.
