Hi Valkyrie,

 

I realized that I didn't answer your questions regarding times and numbers.

 

JG1 has around 30+ pilots, spread across Rise of Flight, IL-2 (CloD and BoX), and DCS World.

 

We meet for Rise of Flight on Mondays and Thursdays at 9PM EST.  IL-2 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9PM EST.  And DCS on Fridays at 10:30PM EST.

 

We also have a large group of European members, who fly during CET hours.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.  We're happy to help.

not necessarily "track IR", but almost all of us use a head tracker of some sort

I don’t use it. I’m perfectly fine to look around using two hats and one slidet on the throttle

Valkyrie, although there are some that don't use it, IMHO it's harder without it, and if you can afford it, my advice would be to buy a TIR, which probably costs at least $120.00 now.  Since the early 2000's, I've owned a TIR 3, 4 and now have a 5.  I've never had a failure of any of them at any time.

 

Once you have it properly set up, it will take you some time to get used to it; but once you do get used to it, you'll wonder how you ever flew without it.

 

There are plenty of people here who can help you optimize your TIR setup.  Few people ask any questions about TIR, yet it's probably the most important aspect of being a good fighter pilot.  You can't fight what you can't see.  Also, almost everybody I know uses a combination of TIR and some fixed views.  This gives you the best of both worlds, seamlessly.

 

S!

I hope you're not correct, since I puke when I do VR....

 

However, I can't expect much sympathy from a Navy guy   :lol:

Hi Valkyrie,

 

Did you get the email that I sent you?  I used the address you signed up to the boards with.

 

I sent you our code-of-conduct document.  When you get it and read it, just get back to me and we can start your in-processing.

 

Talk soon!

There are also less expensive head trackers such as Freetrack (it does require some handyman fiddling to make the IR device headset. I know at least one member that uses it. 

Google "headtracking"... here's a list of devices:

I can't attest to any of them but TrackIR and agree with Luftritter... I wouldn't fly without it.
