Santa came early this year and gave me a new track ir 3 pro. I am having a bit of trouble adjusting to it though. The head movement is still too fast even at the slowest speed setting, and the dead zone aorund the middle just isnt dead enough for accurate targeting. Can anyone give me any tips on adjusting the profiles. Or if someone has a good profile already could you send it to me so I can try it out.

TrackIR needs a while to getting used to. Most pilots turn and move their heads instinctively, making it even more difficult to fly with TrackIR.

You also need to try out different settings. Do you prefer linear sensitivity or curved with a Zero-Zone, etc.

But a few advices to make the learning a bit faster:
- try TrackIR with larger aircraft - you get a better feeling when the few moves and when the a/c does
- the sensitivity can be set below the setting you can put the slider at (At least with my software version.) If I set sensitivity bar to the left, it's still at 20. You got to adjust it further down with the arrows
- the response and resolution is a lot better with an active IR-Diode. You can get these in any electronics shop (or TV/Video-remote control http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif ) - fed by a small battery and attached to a hat is quite effective
- if you use the reflection mode, be sure to not use your glasses during flight, as they reflect the IR light http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
- If it's still to fast, lower the way the reflector/diode moves: If you attached it to the shield of a baseball-cap, the movement is rather wide - try to fix it at the back of the cap and turn it around http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
- be sure to use 'ENHANCED MODE' !
- Disable mouse delay on the welcome screen!

Hope these few tips will help you!

what i noticed help slow things down.. is pull/push the unit further away from you.

i keep it at arms distance out...plus a little bit more.

Read the thread in my sig get a few ideas from it. and move on to the next level of immersion with this game. I now fly with no dead zone and have for some time now. So my profile would be to advanced for a begginer. But I think my old one thats in that thread will still work. Haven't tried it though with my TIR 3 pro.

Make sure you have TrackIR enabled in the config.ini, and that you are using Enhanced, not mouse emulation, mode.

If that doesn't help, try mine (http://www.2gvsap.org/wingnut/2GvSAP_Wingnut.tir). I use an expanded deadzone and rather slow panning.
