With these features, TrackIR is GUARANTEED to take your flight simulator experience to a level you will not believe! This upgrade is better than buying a flight control panel. Here’s why, if you are flying Flight Simulator X for example. You can use TrackIR to zoom in on your control panel.
If you have a touch screen desktop, like I do. You can touch the screen to turn on your carburetor heat if you are flying a Cessna 172. There’s no need for a keyboard and mouse. You can keep your eye on the sky instead of looking for what button to push. All you need is a control yoke or flight stick if you are flying a military jet.
