Correct placement of TrackIr receiver wrt height

Post by mraviatorman1986 » Sun Jul 25, 2010 1:08 pm

Hello all, I'm 86Adel and my account seems revoked.

Anyways I got a trio of TRACKIR4 PRO bundle and the ARMA2: OA, FSX Standard edition. This is the unpackaging of the track IR4 pro:
:grin:

this is also my video review for the unboxed items (merely a show-off);)

Anyhow my question was how to place the receiver on top my CRT?

I'm using an old dated PC (2004 build) and frankly, I experience a cutout when I do things far from the receiver, If I turn my head a little to the left I get a sudden change in view instead of gradual like looking right.

Also, which is funny, in FSX , the first demo was a practical comedy. As soon as the loading screen finished, I found my head bulging on top and out of the cockpit.. , like I had some tactical glasses and getting a feel of 'THE BREEZE' :cool: :/


So, I reposition the receiver a little higher than the screen but have to raise my body in a stranded position like a noose hang in order to look ahead and over the dashboard of the cockpit.. I find it hard to explain without photos but I'm sure many of you had this and beat it.. Ideas?

If using the TrackClip, the camera should be centered, horizontal with the TrackClip.

If using the TrackClip Pro, the camera should be on the left side of the monitor, horizontal wit the TrackClip Pro.

The TrackClip Pro can only be mounted on the left side of the headset, with the longer leg on the bottom.

Do you have TrackClip Pro selected in the software, when using the TrackClip Pro?

As a matter of fact I do. I got it from the latest TIR5 software 6mb or so. I will try your advice and post pics of the device on my laptop. Thanks
