Hey guys. This is my first real official post on Armaholic. I feel a bit sad I have missed out on 2 games now. Just getting into Arma 2 late, it has been a blast trying to figure it out and having a bit of fun.

I am really interested in the Track IR 5 system. I mostly play infantry, but I do alot of flying as well with my Thrustmaster Hotas X flight stick.

I have the money to invest in the system, with the track clip pro, which makes it around a $185.00 dollar investiment.

It seems it was launched in 2009?! I am really skeptical at this point of purchasing the IR 5 because, with it being released so long ago, shouldn't there be a Tracker Ir 6 around the corner with around the same price tag?

This has happened to me more than a couple of times, where I buy a product, and an updated version of the product comes out for around 30 dollars more. That really makes me angry when I do that so now I am taking extra precautions.

Anyone know if its a smart move to pick up the Tracker IR 5 and track clip pro this late in the game? Will ArmA 3 be using this as well? I assume so but some offical source would be nice.

I appreciate your help.

Hello Arch, Welcome to Armaholic.

I'm also looking into buying a TrackIR 5 but all I hear is that the TrackIR 6 is on it's way. Perhaps with some research one might be able to find a probable release of that, I believe the TrackIR 5 is very good for flying in Arma, it's good and accurate right?

I've never heard anyone having precision problems or anything. Not sure how one would improve the trackIR 5, Believe it's already pretty darn good! :)

Track IR 6 will not be out for some time after ArmA 3 releases, it's not dedicated to the ArmA series aswell ofcourse, it's worth you investing in the TrackIR 5. It will be a long time before your hear anything of the 6 being released.

Our very own community member dslyexci has a deal going on with natural point which will net you $20 off the final price. Check it out here. More about the system with it's uses in ArmA 2 here.

So with that discount you can get the TrackIR 5 and a TrackClip PRO for $164.90. :-)

And yes it will be used in ArmA 3. The system isn't built around a game. You can use a Track IR 4 in ArmA 2, and you'll definately be able to in ArmA 3.

Thank you both kindly for your responses. I will go ahead and purchase my Track IR 5 tomorrow then. Thank you for the link to the discount, I appreciate it. I also applied to Shack Tactical with Dslyexci, so here is hoping to get in!

Thank you.

There is a massive backlog of applicants so don't hold out on shacktac, they're are plenty of other communities out they're better ones even.
