    Reading throught the topic, to guys who already have theirs: Is this THE vr -headset to get right now?

    Does it stay on your head during heavy motion and how's the tracking with a bumpy track

    My tracking number is finally working, apparently I will receive the headset on Monday. It is being sent via FedEx to Australia from Hong Kong.

    How long ago did you receive your first tracking number email?

    I received the number a week ago. The tracking application from the link on their email still doesn't show anything, I went onto the FedEx Australia website where the number worked

    That didnt work me for either.
    Seems like it will fix itself soon. I'll wait until the weekend before trying Pimax support again.

    I just deleted my tracking number email and will get a surprise when I forget again that I actually have one coming......

    So stupid.

    Same here, tracking number does not work on either site.

    I have emailed Pimax support twice, with no response.

    And also posted on the Pimax forum regarding invalid tracking numbers being sent out by Pimax: https://forum.pimaxvr.com/t/pimax-sending-out-invalid-tracking-numbers/15818/7

    Just got this response from Pimax support, which is totally unhelpful:

    Subject: Re: Invalid tracking number

    Hi friend,

    Since the packages are being collected, you can follow the tracking number in few days.
    Please be advised.
    Best regards,
    Pimax Support​

    So I’m reading that motion cancellation doesn’t work with Pimax. Can anyone confirm?

    Don't have any controllers, so cannot help, although the way I have my rig setup it is not a issue - Ie My 6DOF does not have any large movements to simulate surge or sway - this is handled by the G-Systems.

    I've never run it at all. Not with the V3 seat mover, not with the full motion SFX-100 system and not when I ran both together, either.

    I've never had a problem holding my head naturally while the motion is doing its thing. It's always felt normal to me without compensation.

    Heeeeey, tracking number works. Apparently coming next Wed. God almighty, what a train wreck!

    Anyway, looking forward to it. Will see if we need to grab a base station immediately. Also the deluxe head strap and all the other things we apparently need to make this thing comfortable.

    it's not true, it works well for me. I have a vive base station, one vive controller and for motion cancellation I use vive tracker .
