Please my ignorance on this subject, I would like to try head tracking, when I last used flight sims the top hat joy stick was considered the ultimate in high spec. Yes I am that old. The Delan engineering gamer pack seems to be a good deal at the lower end of the market but is it a false economy, would I be better off in the long run buying the more expensive alternative, bearing in mind compatability with ROF, ease of installation, setting up and such like. I do not have the knowledge or inclination to go down the build it your self route so really need an "off the shelf" product. Any advice would be greatl appreciated, I am using windows 10 if that has any bearing. Thank you in advance.

Hey there Colin!
I'd reccomend giving TrackIR a look. It's pricier than some of the cheaper tracking options out there but substantially cheaper than VR. I got TrackIR years ago and have never regretted it! A total game changer.

On the other-hand the main reason why I did left RoF is VR, only if being proper integrated, which for FC is not, I will be back to WW1 after 20y of mainly gaming WW1 flysims.
Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.

I have TrackIR 5 since 2013 and it never failed me. If you have the money, it is worth every penny.

Thanks for the replies, as this is a whole new thing for me and not wanting to spend to much on something that may end up stuck away in a drawer, I have decided to go with the delan option, will let you know how I get on.

Well, I have bought the delan clip and installed face track noir, set it up temporarily with the camera sitting on a old coffee jar, and the clip velcroed to my head phones. I am impressed, takes a bit of getting used to and a lot of moving the coffee jar around my desk to get the tracking right but well worth the effort. For what I consider a fair price a very nice well solid little bit of kit.

I have not experienced that problem yet, at the moment I am still trying out various camera and clip positions for optimum performance, what I need is some form of flexible mounting for the camera as I find just clipping it to the top of my monitor does not suit my sitting position. I have an old angle-poise lamp I might try to adapt, failing that a long "goose-neck" should do the trick, any way thanks for your reccomendation.
