Mapped a modifier to my Hotas last night for mouse clicks.
Better than grabbing the mouse every time, but still not really immersive. Can't wait for these to ship! (But take your time, "do it once, do it right" my Dad always said...)

Let me ask you if there will be a later batch?
Currently I don't have a suitable computer, nor a VR Headset but I'm in the process of sorting it out and hopefully, after the summer, will start shopping.
Would be great if I would be able to get your great device later on

Cheers

@ Lt Jaeger, I will continue to sell and improve PointCTRL until something better comes along for flight sims and there is no more interest.

UPDATE I think I have everything sorted now. In anticipation of shipping production units next week, I am going to make some short, subject specific instructional videos. The intent is to keep them short so users can easily reference required information. I am going to try and have a few posted by Sunday.

Video Subjects
1) Concept of operation
2) Mounting the HMS
3) FCU on/off and setting IRLED timeout
4) DCS windowed vs full screen mode effect on PointCTRL
5) Setting cursor boundaries and movement ratio
6) Zooming with FCU
7) Future planned functionality

Thanks,
Miles

Great news Miles!

Excellent idea about the vids as well. I prefer learning stuff through watching, so this sounds perfect!

I have had that for quite a long time and while 100 times better than messing with a mouse, it lacks that physical feeling of flipping a switch. This will be a real game changer for anyone with home cockpits! I made a full scale Tomcat pilot setup. Right now I reach for the switch or button, knob, etc and get really close to it but since I can't see my hand and where it is in relation to the VR world, I can't make it quite real. This will solve that.

I shudder to think of the money and time that Miles has sunk into this so far. I can't throw money at him fast enough. I would love to see an article on how the project came about, all the steps and path through the project, lessons learned, after action - call it what you will document/article. We don't get to see that path very often.

Miles, you are a credit to your Greeniehood!

If you want realism then you absolutely HAVE to have:

PointCTRL by MilesD, No more mouse - reach and adjust controls!

Hey Mariner,
I find it interesting you mentioned this because my son said I should do a live stream to mark the launch of PointCTRL. After he explained to me how it worked, I didn't think it would be all that interesting to people, but who knows. If a few people are interested we could do a random drawing to give away a PointCTRL.
If you guys are interested let me know. If we ask FireCat nicely, he can probably make a list and figure out the best time for everyone.
