Also - make sure you set it up with a good profile - either your own or downloaded.

The one I use dispenses with zoom and roll axis, and has a slight dead spot around the centre which helps keep your head lined up with your sights unless you do actually want to break from them and look around.

I use a different for flying.

Yeah, i found i didn't need the in-out direction at all for infantry movement, and i have a pretty huge deadzone for the roll axis and the left-right leaning. I found that the default settings had me walking around while also leaning which caused a lot of people to ask me if I was alright :)

To be honest you just need to look up/down left/right. Tilt, lean and zoom are a bit much for me.

I disabled the zoom, because I dont dont think getting closer to the monitor every time you want to zoom in is a good think. I sometimes use the incremental leaning, but using the normal lean is working better in most cases. :)

I too disabled zoom. Plus a bigger dead zone. Over time the dead zone has been reduced. Practise I guess

I started with his profile. It was very good and then just tweaked it to suit. Mine is now quite different interestingly. I guess different muscle memory, distance from screen etc

I used FaceTrackNoIR before and leaning & zooming was a pain...
Good to know that its not a common thing, even with trackir.
