What I miss more is the fact I don't know how much ammo is left for the minigun.
For what it's worth, having gunned on a M134 in real life, you don't know on the rap deal either! It's sort of an educated guess based on how long you've held the boom switch...

Suggestion. Could really do with a mini-gun aimed by using the mouse, using trackIR can be very tedious and difficult to hit targets. Not sure if this has been brought up before but I think it would make the mini-gun variant a much more popular and effective on the battlefield.

Someone posted back up earlier - use the mouse. Is this an option for minigun aim, as headtracking aim sucks?

When going to minigun seat [3] disable headtracking (i.e. TrackIR) and hit [LALT + C].
When leaving, enable headtracking.
The [LALT + C] can be activated in beforehand and only ones without issues I believe. I have a button on the mouse for TrackIR disabel/enable.

I'm not familiar with open track, but in TrackIR one can define a button to disable the tracking. If open track is supposed to have that but it doesn't work for you, maybe the same button is used in DCS and causing it to be "hidden" for open track?
I don't remember if it was like that in TrackIR, but I defined the mouse wheel button (needed some tweaking since it's not officialy supported in TrackIR to use a mouse button for this) to disable tracking in the TrackIR software and made sure that button wasn't in use anywhere in DCS (seen as mouse button 3).
