You can switch the electronics out of the mount, so you might order a new hmd specific mount or use a genetic one Miles also provide. 

 

If you on the list, you should pre order thrue the web site again with your list name and number and you will keep your spot. Thus you can adapt your order. When you get your invoice there will be another chance to make changes. 

 

Ok thanks.

hmmm so my name doesnt seem to be on the list ? despite me ordering and getting a confirmation on the 01-FEB-21 and an update on the 20-FEB-21

Interesting, i have ordered shortly after the new preorder process (website) was possible, but got no confirmation e-mail or something else. Also tried to contact operations@pointctrl.com but no response and my spam folder was empty too. Is there a chance to check if my preorder was valid?

Hey Hoot,
The first 20 or so orders on the web site did not auto-send a confirmation. If you like, DM your order name, or the email you provided, and I can send a confirmation. Production is just now picking up and can be followed in the PointCTRL Discord also.

Thanks,

Miles

Hello @MilesD and everyone else who knows anything about this nice piece of electronics 😉
Got hold of a used V1 to shorten the waiting time for V2.
When i first fixed it to the HMD, the micro USB socket inside the HMS PCB broke off 😱 A weak point in my opinion.
Now i want to solder the individual wires directly to the PCB because everything else (soldering the socket) makes no sense and is almost impossible.

Now my question: is the PIN- assignment correct? Read from the entrance side from above looking at the PCB from left to right:
1 red - 2 white - 3 green - 4 ID (free) - 5 black
Can I just leave 4 "ID/sense" blank, or do I have to connect it to ground
(easy connection of 4 + 5) on the PCB side?

Thanks in advance and greetings from Bavaria

Hey Ganesh,
The ID is left unconnected. Good luck, and let us know how you make out. You are correct, the Micro USB is the weak point. The new HMS mounts have an integrated support.

DONE! 💪 And secured with a chunk of hot glue!
Thank you for the tip with the alternative soldering points. At the base itself it would have been impossible.
Worked perfectly!
Unfortunately my G2 or rather its cable said goodbye on the same evening 4-1 error 🤮
I´ll take a summer break now

If I preorder a set of these now, how long is the wait to get them? I understand they are hand build by someone, just trying to get an idea.

hard to guess an estimate sir. Still about 100 devices pending from FireCat list. Let´s say 6 weeks WHEN shipping is resumed, currently on pause.
Then Pre-order website list will start, but I don´t think pre-orders figures are public.
Then shipping from the USA.

I feel little sorry for the OP about how many is ordering this stuff. As one can make small production of 50 or so units fairly easily, but when it becomes hundreds of units, then it starts to be challenge to handle....

They(there are several people involved) are able to provide product and services to USAF so I guess some DCS users aren´t that challenging 😉

I know it is a small manufacture but with all the VR flying stuff taking off would be nice to see if they could get some real production runs going. I will watch for the pre order site list to see how it is going.

prouction began to ramp up with about 130 devices sent in two months, but it´s currently paused due to some nasty bug which requires special attention. Fingers crossed though.

Any way I can help? Kit assembly, shipping orders (CONUS)? I know how to solder... I don't like it, but I can do it 🙂

Thanks

I've changed my HMD too, from a Rift S to a Reverb G2; i hope we can change the HMD mount prior shipping.


yes, once your order moves to shipping, you are allowed to choose other headset
