TrackIR heavy downward drift in MSFS only

Post by GrumpySpock » Sat Jan 09, 2021 9:17 am

I'm having a problem with using TrackIR in MSFS: my view starts to drift downwards after a couple of seconds in flight. I can re-center my view with the assigned key, only to have it drift down immediately. This is reproducable, it happens every time I try to use TrackIR with MSFS. So MSFS currently is not usable with TrackIR at all for me.
When I look at the TrackIR utility program at the same time I'm experiencing the problems in MSFS, I see that the view there is perfectly ok - centered when I look straight ahead, no drift at all. So MSFS -> drift down until I literally look at the pilot seat, TrackIR utility program -> normal orientation.
The TrackIR camera is connected directly to a USB on the computer, no USB hub involved.
I noticed this behaviour first the first time I used MSFS after the Dezember patch for MSFS.
Does anyone have any idea how this can be fixed? Right now it is holding me off from using MSFS at all - the experience with TrackIR is so much better than without.
