TrackIR explained – Four aces dogfight

AR.Drone – user upload (video summary)

This video has been uploaded to by user MartinTrankell. Here is a summary of the video in their own words:

I made this video in response to the many comments asking how the TrackIR works. Take a good look at how it performs with rapid head-movement and how it simulates a full 360 degree view. Also notice the 6-degrees of freedom – which allows you to bend forward, backwards, tilt your head and crouch in the cockpit. I ran this mission against four aces by myself. The AI in IL-2 is quite easy and the challenge lies in keeping track of all four boogies with your spatial memory. It’s nice way of mental training; which also very much applies to real life flying. The realism is set to full except for icons (which is meant to help Youtube watchers seeing the enemies). The fight is a TnB (Turn n Burn) fight for you savvy ones. I hope you’ll excuse my swedish accent and general “stumble with words” =). Ps. The jolt at the end of the movie is a pause by me. My desktop ran a program in the background and I had to alt-tab. No cheating involved, I swear!
