Looks rather interesting, will check it out. With FSX and its instance that you use the VC you definitely need a head tracker to look around, the HAT buttons are simply not good enough, especially when you try to fly formation.

Good find. :smt023

Well, after lots of swearing and frustration I finally got it to work, sort of. But its not working properly, or maybe I am just not doing it right. The help offered by the program and creators is somewhat lacking.

However, it does seem a step in the right direction, I will try it again and see whether I can finally figure the program out.

Cool stuff! I guess its not the ultimate head tracking device, but then, it's free. I've got mine to work properly (FS9), and I am more than happy :D
Let us know if you have sorted out the settings, etc...
