    An overview of the pending eye tracking for Pimax, they mention mid February as the possible start of pre-orders, but given past experience with Pimax I would take that timeline with a grain of salt:

    I have not used mine for a while, but never had a problem in the past.

    I tested mine on X-Plane 11.41 and it works with the Pimax. What version of PiTools are you using?

    Just tried myself - Xplane 11 is working fine with my Pimax 5K+.

    Perhaps it would be best to take that up on the Pimax forum.

    If I recall I used SweViver's tips as a base for tweaking my Pimax with X-Plane 11:

    Pimax 5K Plus.jpg

    I'm one lucky guy :)
    $450 (Australian) delivered for a second hand Pimax 5k Plus. The guy bought it on 6 January this year and sold it to me 2 weeks later because he preferred his Valve Index over having to tweak settings to get the Pimax running at optimum specs.
    It came with the Comfort kit and 2-in 1 cable too. I guess Santa was just running late this year.

    So I was looking around online and happened to come across the 3D files for a printable protective case for the Pimax that the company released in February 2019.

    Yes and no.

    It works for the position.

    But the rotation (roll and pitch and yaw) are not reset by the reset seat position. If it could, it would be great.

    Also, a low pass filter to remove small vibration would be awesome.

    Pierre.
