TrackIR

#1

Hello chaps, wondering what's the best to go with in terms of TrackIR.. not sure if the JHC lads use it or perhaps others that like flight sims do?.. 
currently playing IL2 battle of Stalingrad and to venture into multiplayer it seems trackIR is essential.. 
I did a quick search and saw there's the truck hat option, though looking through their Facebook posts from customers suggests could be poor quality or not even receive my product.. other option i saw was TrackIR 5 by Natural Point. About £200 on amazon, yet ordering from the States is about £160.

TrackIR 5 with pro Clip is the way to go. Clips straight onto a headset if you wear one.

Yes expensive, but makes a lot of a difference in terms of viewing ability.

The only cons apart.from cost is that sometimes if there is a lot of light.or reflective surfaces adjacent to the receiver it can go a bit haywire.
