  1. I'd like to hear more about WinWings plans for the additional throttle handles. Will they be sold as an add-on kit? will they work on both the Orion and Super Taurus? I'm currently running a HOTAS Warthog and have a HOTAS Cougar throttle converted to USB but the Cougar used to be very unreliable and I'm resigned to it failing at some point. Virpil have a nice line up but the draw for me with WinWing is the replica throttle layout. I'm using a Sim Labs P1-X cockpit so have the ability to easily mount either the Super Taurus with some additional brackets or just mount the Orion on t
  2. I wonder how the side plate will work for the F-16 on the Super Taurus? it would be nice to see some pictures of it
  3. So will the Orion eventually replace the Super Taurus throttle? I have to admit to being a bit intrigued by Winwing even though I have a modded Warthog throttle base and I could fit the Super Taurus to my aluminium extrusion cockpit quite easily. I saw they have planned F-16 and helicopter collective throttle arms for the Orion, I'm guessing the fixing is the same on the Super Taurus throttle but what about that side plate for the F-16 throttle?
  4. Thanks trace, I was thinking I could get away with just making a small subframe by putting two pieces of 40x40 profile in front of the pedal deck then mounting the pedals to two 40x40 crossmembers to sit on the pieces in front of the pedal deck. With two angle brackets at the end it would stop them sliding.
  5. Could you give me a measure on the Crosswinds with the F-16 pedals please? Yeah I like the P1-X, it gives me a little more flexibility over the Obutto Ozone I had.
  6. Could you please give me a measurement for the total width of the pedals? I'm using a Sim-Labs P1-X cockpit for racing and flight sims and have my racing pedals hard mounted with a set of CH pedals sat on the floor. I'd like to upgrade to something like the Virpil or MFG Crosswinds but I know the Virpil pedals are too wide, the width I have is about 500mm
  7. I've used TrackIR and other options such as EDTracker and TrackHat but for me personally nothing comes close to the immersion in VR. Its truly transformed my flight sims, I find I spend more time flying now because of VR. I went through so many iteration of head tracking as mentioned above because I never found the perfect device, I don't want to have to play in a darkened room because the TrackIR gets thrown off and I hate the way the trackers lose their tracking even after you've spent time tweaking and trying to find the sweet spot so they don't go crazy if you move too far out of range.The
  8. I think the slew upgrade is fairly priced.
  9. Have a look at the slew upgrade. The original one is pretty poor, close to unusable but the upgrade transforms it. I've just done mine and so glad I did. https://deltasimelectronics.com/products/thumbstick-slew-sensor-adapter https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=200198
  10. 2453 received and installed, working great, got it last week in the mail but been too ill to fit until today.
  11. Well I'm using the settings Don posted apart from PD at 1.6 because the text is too blurry for me at 1.3. Its better than it was, not quite 2.5.5 but not far away so thats great. Another Windows update appeared tonight so fingers crossed ????
  12. Could you please post your DCS settings? My system is pretty comparable to yours
  13. Is licensing going to be an issue? I'd love to see an up to date USB F-16 TQS. I have a HOTAS Cougar throttle with the parts ready to convert to USB and will get that done soon but I still worry about its long term durability as it was prone to have issues with the speedbrake switch, pots on the ANT and RNG rotaries.
  14. Short answer - do it! I really underestimated how much of a difference VR would make. Having been a TrackIR user since the very first model and a user of various other tracking devices over the years - always looking for improvement I'd discounted the first generation of headsets for the clarity of the screens and the cost. With Windows Mixed Reality headsets becoming available with better screen technology I started to look at VR again but my PC wasn't up to it. Once I'd upgraded the Rift S arrived on the market and it made sense to me to dip my toe in the VR water and I'm so glad I did!
