    Best addon 2016

    Hi
    Let me hear what your best addon (payware or freeware) for 2016 has been.
    For me it is very easy because there´s one I use all the time and that I cant imagine simming without since I bought it.

    So my choice is: Trackhat.

    Well DB I had not heard of that little gizmo but having seen the froogle sim video i have now added it to my wish list !!

    for me the purchase of a gtx1060 graphics card made a slight improvement over the old gtx660ti card and the 6tb external drive will hopefully keep my back ups secure but I suppose i have received the most pleasure from the carenado navajo and the alabeo aztec, which to be honest fly nothing like the real a/c , but they look good and allow me to remember flying the real ones.

    Well DB I too had never heard of "Trackhat" however it got me thinking again of some software I had experimented with several years ago called "Camera Mouse". Its main purpose is to be used by disabled people to control a PC mouse however I used it to control the camera view in FSX and it works perfectly OK. That's all you need is a low cost PC web cam and the free software and away you go. So my vote goes to "Camera Mouse".

    BTW, you can make your own "trackhat" if you have the time, some wire, some leds and a webcam.
    There are various tutorials on the net.
    As I wrote, its a never go back piece of hardware. I find it to be very boring flying without it. Since getting the hat, I see myself flying more tandem seaters because you can lean over both sides and look down on your favorite maybe homemade scenery. So this year its has been a lot of Realair Scout, Flysimware Fairchild, Iris Pilatus PC-9 and sometimes Dino Cattaneos MB 326 (great freeware jet trainer) But I enjoy the hat in all aircraft.
