I have pre-orded and can't wait to get a set of these. I'm sick of having to pick up a VR controller to click around the cockpit then put it back down.

 

Would it be posible to add/sync the DCS VR hand models to these devices? 

 

I can imagine the immersion being better again if your hand is moving around the cockpit as it does when using VR controllers in DCS.

 

Cheers and thanks for this amazing piece of tech.

This is the new HMS mount that v2 is shipping with. It should reduce the reduce the broken USB connectors if the plug gets accidentally grabbed  or pulled.  

Hey Jim, Thanks, PointCTRL is far from perfect, but it is an effective solution right now for our needs in DCS. I am sure someone much smarter than me will come out with something better soon.

Can confirm it does not work yet. not Miles fault. the mouse works weird in MSFS2020

I tried that about a year ago and found it to be more trouble than it’s worth.

YMMV

And to think I nearly pulled the trigger on a pair of Capto gloves before I saw this. I really don't mind a bit of wait if it means I will finally be able to tune the radios in the A10.

You won't be disappointed! I recently had my PC out of action for a good couple of months (before Miles came to the rescue!). Getting them back on makes it feel so natural to point at and manipulate controls in the cockpit again. I really couldn't imagine flying without them and am really looking forward to the V2 FPU's.

 

While they are not perfect (what is?), Miles always stated that they would be an interim solution to the problem of interaction in VR, well it's been a good few years now and I have yet to see anything equal, let alone surpass the functionality these bring to the party!

Hi Miles

I’d be interested to mount the system into psvr helmet. Which kind of mounting option should I choose?

thanks

Hmm... That's a first request, I will have a look at it.

PointCTRL v2 to being shipping this week.
We will start slow with production prototypes, if feedback is positive and nothing pops up from the users, we will increase production every week

 

The HMS is the same form factor as v1, but has an added stress relief in the micro USB connector. We were not getting 100% reliability out of the new micro-controllers.

There is no performance or feature gain with the new cortex processor. They were just going to be easier for us to manufacture.

 

The original form factor actually works better for all VR headsets except the Index. If you have an Index, you can wait until we offer both form factors if you like. Pics of the index can be seen in the HMS pics channel on the Discord.


Thanks again for all of your support patience, we truly appreciate it.

 

Miles

This is going to sound like a daft question, but how much does rely on line of sight to the hand controllers from the headset unit, I ask, because my setup forces my hands below my desk (space constraints) where my controllers are mounted?

OK so now that I know I will be continuing to use DCS after getting through much of  my learning curve with the Hornet, and obviously these finger trackers have been doing quite well, I have finally placed my pre-order.

 

Looking forward to this!

You will definitely enjoy using them.  I have V1 and may pre-order V2 as they are a little smaller.

So I just pre-ordered today, I assume I will be getting V2?

Yes...you will be getting the V2 unless you specifically ask for the V1.

Preordered from the site back in december, can't wait.

 

P.S. why does it not work with fs2020? Isn't it just a mouse? If you can use a regular mouse, you should be able to use this... why not?

Miles deals with x-plane, and to be honest the VR mouse in x-plane sucks even if you use It with a traditional mouse. Nevertheless, since dcs is my main simulator (with a bit of il-2 sometimes, that has a mouse very close to the one in dcs), that's fine to me.
