5.0 out of 5 stars slight better than v4 December 26, 2009
Verified Purchase
Compared to the Trackir v4, the v5 is smoothier, and in general you don't need to "recenter" very often. Also, you have more room to move your head, specially when leaning. Considering that v4 is already a 5 star device in my opinion, you can't go wrong with v5. If you have a v4, there is really no necessity to upgrade, but if you're going for your first trackir, don't hesitate - buy v5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most important flight sim add-on! December 20, 2009
Verified Purchase
I fly Microsoft Flight Sim X as a way to keep my head in flying while I cannot afford to exersize my real life certificate. I've been wanting one of these for a while and during the wait, Natural Point put out the new version 5. I finally bought it and, all I can say is "WOW!"

Okay, that's not all I can say. When the package arrived, quickly I might add, from GoGamer, I was surprised at the size of the box. It was well over-packed and protected from the rigors of shipping. The actual unit is quite small. Unpacking from the bubble package is easier than the normal bubble packaging, too. I was going to wait for Christmas, put it under the tree, etc. but the kids will just have to understand!

Setup is a snap. Installed the software from the website first, then plugged it all up. It just works. I picked one of the default profiles and went flying. It was wonderful to look around the airplane, although I habitually use the hat switch which is now largely useless. I haven't even explored all the settings, profiles, or adjusted anything but the flying is 100% better. I turned my head to look where the runway is! Simple thing, but so, so important for realism. Imagine leaning in forward to see and set the radio, or turn the OBS knob to a precise setting, or craning your neck up to see over the dash better. I'm hoping today to explore the settings some more. I picked a profile that moves actually too well. I need to expand the "dead zone" just a bit so my head movements don't make flying into what my wife calls a puke ride. It isn't of course.

The only difficulty I've had so far is trying to assign buttons for "Center" and "Pause" to my Saitek yoke. I haven't figured out how to make it work. But this is due to my not having explored the software yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Whole New Experience October 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have enjoyed flight sims for many years but I have NEVER enjoyed them this much!

I bought this head tracking system for use with IL-2 and X-Plane, it works wonderfully with both. Keeping an enemy plane in sight is a breeze and flying a good pattern/approach has never been so simple. TrackIR has reinvigorated my enthusiasm for these games. I don't think I could ever go back to the old HAT switch on the joystick to change views.

It is a bit disorienting for the first few minutes. You have to wrap your brain around the fact that a head turn of less than 90 degrees might produce a view change of 180 degrees or more. But really, the learning curve is minimal.

This unit is much smaller than you think it might be from the pictures, which I think is a good thing. The mount for the "camera" is not universal and you may have to get creative in attaching it to your monitor. The reflector clip you need to attach to a cap (not supplied) feels very flimsy but reflector tape is readily available and making a more sturdy unit would not be difficult at all.

The instruction say the maximum range is around 5 feet, but I am using it at a distance of around 7-8 feet (I use a large plasma screen) with moderate lighting. It has not lost the tracking even once at that distance. No software came with my unit but the needed software is readily available on the manufacturer's website. Installation was a bit touchy and the PC needed to be rebooted after running the setup program. Time needs to be taken with the software to get it set to your preferences but in all this took only about a half hour and was very intuitive.

So is it worth the money? As far as how much it enhances your enjoyment of the games, the answer is a huge YES!

5.0 out of 5 stars Situational awareness in a box October 16, 2009
By Bryan
Yes it's expensive but one you have used it, you can't live without it. Using a hat-switch to look around in air combat simulations cannot compare to simply moving your head naturally to pan around as if you are in the plane. Once you own one, flying without it is just not worth it. Do yourself a favor and buy one. I bought mine directly from the trackir website. You can get a better deal by buying from Amazon or an Amazon retailer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sreious Sim Gamer? This is a Must Have Item May 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In the several years that I have been a fan of Flight Sim, from Sublogic to FSX, there has been only a hand full it items that has been rule changes in the way one plays.

This product is at the top of the list. Not only is it a snap to setup and get running (took less than 10 minuets). TrackIR 5 has literally changed how I play and enjoy Flight Sim X and Black Shark. Before I got the Track IR, using a HAT switch to pan inside and outside of the aircraft got the job done. The HAT switch is, in my opinion great for changing your view outside of the SIM aircraft. For the record, the HAT switch (even with the Track IR) is still the best way to pan external views.

In terms if developing an awareness of your location, speed, since of movement, and your position relative to where you want your sim plane to be, this tool is hands-down, a game changer. It takes a little getting use to. For me, I have never used a tool that lets me simply look in the direction I want to move to in a natural way. You may need to make a few simple adjustments to the speed and smoothness controls for your taste. However, once you have done that, a new Flight Sim world opens up to you.

I was a bit reluctant to buy this product. But there is enough information on the internet, to give you a real understand of how this tool is supposed to work. And it works very well. If you buy only one add on for Flight Sim, this is the add on to buy. I bought TrackIR 5, without the track clip. It really works well, and I don't have to always wear a headset to use the TrackIR.

I would recommend the TrackIR to any serious Flight or Race sim fan out there. You might think that the unit is a little expensive. I had my reservations, but I am so glad I bought it, and so will you once you buy one for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars this is a wonderful choice. A bit awkward for me at first
If you don't own a VR headset, and want a little extra immersion, this is a wonderful choice. A bit awkward for me at first, but now it feels weird if I don't use it.
