Default Flex Sight and TrackIR5

When using the Flex Gun/Flex sight with TrackIR, the visor is "jumping around" which makes it very hard to actually hit something. If needed, then I can upload a video to show the effect.



In the cockpit, TrackIR works perfect though (no jumping around). It's only with the Flex Sight where it seems inaccurate.

Yes, been like that as long as I know. Unfortunately it seems to be the default aming when having TIR. I always disable my TIR when using the flex sight or back seat gunners and use the mouse ("AP" enabled).

Too bad, because I've heard it shall work pretty good in VR.


The way we practice and attack in our squad, I simply can't use AP. Aside that, I also don't want to use the AP ;-)



It would be nice if this could be looked at. ATM, I simply let the AI use the Flexi Gun, but it doesn't always attack my desired target...

Even if it did work I would still use the mouse. In my opinion there are other issues concerning TIR and aiming, not concerning VR. If you sitt still and move your head, the reticle will easily move out of sight. And if you move your body to follow the reticle, it's easy to move out of the TIR camera view. But this might only be an issue if you like me have a 1:1 TIR profile.

My profile isn't 1:1. Aiming is still not easy, I agree. However, if you do a high level attack and, you tip in, fire the rockets first and then change to the flexi gun when closer before you break 90° right/left, then you can't simply let the AP fly the Huey. It would level out the flight during your attack.


My solution so far is to simply use the fixed guns from the pilot seat. That seems to work better.

Yeah, "he" isn't very susceptible to directions how to fly, our fellow "pilot"...
Even if I don't use TIR aiming I'm fully backing your request for improvement.

Other solution would be multicrew... ;-) There are quite some "open points" on the checklist of ED.

Well, I found a remedy:
'TrackIR Aiming On/Off' [T + RShift]
A not very well known "hidden" feature. Default is to have the head movement separate from the sight, and to control the sight with the mouse, but with this (toggle) command your "face" is glued to the sight and you only use your head to aim. Unfortunately there is no way to make this mode the default (not what I have found yet at least).
The default mode is bugged though, as we already have seen. I reported my findings in a new thread here.

Not sure if I understood it correctly. For me, aiming with the head/TrackIR is by default. I'm not using the mouse. The visor is anyway jumping around. It's not really possible to aim with the head. However, I'll try the RShift-T, just in case I misunderstood your explanation :-)

Indeed, you can aim with your head in the default mode, but I don't think you should be able to do that. And the TrackIR takes precedence over the mouse, though the conflict causes jumping.
Compare with the door gunners, default is free head and aiming with mouse, no jumping around. Rshift+T and your head is glued to the sight/gun, again no jumping.
You can of course remove the mouse axis assignments from the TrackIR Gunner profile, but then you can't use it for the door gunners.
