  1. I’ve recently got a Valve Index with just one lighthouse which reduces the cost quite a bit and from my few days experience with it suggest having a look at that as an option. With such a short ownership time I can’t of course claim any expertise, just first impressions. The Rift S would also be a good choice from what I have heard but I haven’t tried one. I have just a GTX 2070 and am getting very pleasing results. Valve have a free app you can run to check the specs of your rig prior to deciding. Redkite’s excellent video about the Valve Index was very helpful for me.
  2. I think it now just might be my favourite Allied fighter. Great job devs. Much appreciated.
  3. I'll vote for the P-38 I think. It's something a bit different.
  4. Very good summary of the Valve Index OP, thank you. I got mine only yesterday. I got only one light house for it and no controllers to keep the initial cost down. I'll add those later on. It seems to be fine with just one light house but it is early days of course. I have a GTX 2070 and it seems to be OK with that. I agree with all you have written. I really like how I can move my eyes around to see things rather than having to move my head, if that makes sense. I've just finished a 40 minute flight in a P-38 Lighting and it is just wonderful to feel like you are actually in the cockpit and see those two big engines to the sides. I'm still playing around with settings but from the get-go the Valve Index has been a wonderful experience. It oozes quality. I'm a happy camper. Thanks for pointing out the function button. I had not discovered that as yet.
  5. Thanks BlackHellHound1 for your guide at the start of this thread. With that I have my Trackhat Clip Plus going well in DCS World with opentrack. I haven’t tried it in IL-2 yet but I’ll read this whole thread over the next few days.
  6. Keep up the good work Devs. From what I am seeing it is shaping up rather nicely.
  7. I know people have different preferences so this is just my take on it. I use a Thrustmaster T 16000m. I currently combine it with a CH Throttle and Saitek Combat Rudder pedals. They all work well so long as I avoid the CH software. I find the T 16000m comfortable in the hand and quite accurate and sturdy. Great value for money when I got mine a few years ago and it is still going strong. The simple slider for the throttle is adequate but not great. However it is easy enough in sims like CLoD to add in something like a CH Throttle to work with it. Perhaps because it was so cheap I have on occasion looked elsewhere in the probably never ending search for the ultimate joystick. i have tried in turn the Saitek X52 Pro and CH Fighterstick. I didn't like either of those in comparison to the T16000m and sold them on. While travelling OS once I got a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. I was not taken by it but it was very cheap. Years ago I had the early Microsoft Force Feedback which was a nice stick. This was the first Red Baron days if I recall correctly. I think I wore it out but it was fun to use. Considering how good the T 16000m is wonder if the Thrustmaster Wartog might be worth considering but it is an expensive bit of kit. I am interested to read the comments about the MSFFB2. It sounds like Microsoft on occassion can make a darn good joystick or two. Pity they don't offer one at the moment.
