First, I wanted to thank everyone who weighed in on my post concerning a HOTAS setup and track IR about a month ago. Since I was short on cash and could only get one, I ended up purchasing an X45 for a good price shortly thereafter. I like the throttle a lot and, surprisingly, I even like the stick! Having less dependence on the keyboard is a godsend and really enhances the experience for me! Special thanks to Adlabs for providing a readily available and easy to use (due to the nice manual) X45 profile to get me started.

The rocker rudder is still taking some getting used to (especially after using a twisty), but I believe I can live with it for now. However, I find it to be way too sensitive and wondered if someone could give me some insight into setting the "input" values for the yaw axis to make it better? I noticed they are at 100 across the board as default and I am sure this is the reason for the funkiness.

Secondly, I have found that the "mouse look" option with the hat or thumb stick is less than intuitive for me and since I have never been wholly satisfied with snap views, I made a conscious decision to try Track IR in the future. Well, as it turns out, I got a decent sum of money for my B-Day last week and Track IR 3 Pro is now on its way to my house! Oh joy!

Thanks again, perhaps I will see you chaps online in the near future. If nothing else, I could provide a slow moving target for you guys! Cheers! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Good deal. I have an X45 as well and TrackIR3 pro should be here Wed. We have the same set-up, except I have CH Pro Pedals. I found the rocker hard to use. I got the pedals and they are sweet. I highly recommend them. Can't wait for IR to get here.

Thanks, steve_v... I'll give that a try!

Lav69 - I am pondering a set of pedals, but it seems as though it will be quite a while before I am in a position to that. However, it does appear to be the next logical upgrade!

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifwhy not get these, http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=43352 saves you using the rocker switch,not as expensive as ch pro pedals. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif
