    No, it's simply how the two systems work together. The Scorpion will always be in the centre of the display, and the Track IR works by turning your head (ie, away from centre). So there will always be the weird sensation of turning your head one way and your eyes the other.

    My axes work well and are comfortable for every other aspect of flight simming. Trying to adjust to minimize this would make them far too sensitive for normal use, I suspect. The problem isn't as evident in the Hornet/Viper/Blackshark because I tend to be looking at smaller angles from centre with those, minimizing the problem.
    I found a workaround. It's not ideal but works. Program a modifier. I use the paddle switch. Then program the trim hat when using the modifier. Put all the views on the trim hat when using the modifier.

    Now when you want to use the Scorpion. Pause Trackir, hold the paddle, and look around with sight with the trim hat. It's nice and steady and right in the middle of your view. No straining to look out the side of your eye. Like I said. It's not ideal but works.

      Nice work around, good idea. Thanks.

      Actually I do use something similar with my mouse. One of the buttons on my mouse toggles TrackIR on/off, another switches between mouse pointer and mouse view control. Then I use the mouse to look around in the same way you use the trim hat. Like you said it isn't ideal at all. But it works. I might try to come up with a macro that pauses track IR and switches mouse control with a single button press and reverts back to normal when you let go of the button.

      I think there are enough Track IR users to warrant ED looking at some kind of adjustable bias system as skypickle suggested - simply move the center point according to how far you look in that direction with a slider to adjust how much offset should occur. That would solve the problem. What are the percentages of TrackIR users vs VR users I wonder?
