Hi, I did a search and only found one other post about EDTracker.

Wondering if anyone is using EDTracker instead of TrackIR?

http://www.edtracker.co.uk/

As EDTracker is not an infra-red tracker, ambient light does not interfere with with it.
This was a problem at Wright-Patterson WW1 Rendezvous in 2016 - looking for an alternative for 2018.

I see that EDTracker is 3DOF not 6DOF like TrackIR - wondering how much impact that has when flying WOFF.

Thanks for any input.

It looks interesting Stache, but not a lot of info on how it hooks up to the system. Price looks expensive for the pro edition and it is currently not available due to stock shortage or something like that.

Actually it is half the price of TrackIR (not counting shipping)- so a lot less expensive.
Supposed to be back in stock in mid May.
Connects to computer with a USB Cable.

Seems to get a fair amount of usage in DCS - IL2 CLOD.

Have also been looking at this - to use in conjunction with TrackIR but use active IR instead of passive reflectors.

How does it track your head? Don't you have to wear it somehow?

Yes, it is a motion sensor (yaw, pitch, roll) - you attach it to a hat or headset.
route the cable as appropriate back to the computer.
But it does not need direct line of sight as there is no camera involved like TrackIR.

I read something about a centering button that was removed in favour of a software centering solution. I hope it can be keyboard assigned and work in WOFF. I would like to try it.
