I know there's no way I could have achieved the level of success I've had in ROF if I didn't fly with my Track-Ir.
Not even close...
While that may be true for you
That's all he said in his post.
I'm in the same boat. I never used nor missed TrackIR when flying IL2, even online. While I always thought
it would be nice and intended to purchase it at some point, I never felt hampered by not having it.
RoF was a different story for me, I just couldn't get the hang of maintaining proper awareness with the snap views.
Mostly I think because of that top wing in my face all the time. Track IR has made all the difference to
my RoF experience, and I wouldn't go back.
Look around with your head or use your thumb? No brainier really.
