    Anyone else use it? Is it worth it? I can't afford vr or triple screens

    It works great. I made a couple of them, very easy to build and use.
    Make sure to get/use the Mpu-9150 it is way better than the unit with out magnetometer.

    Yes believe it will work with all sims. Some directly, with others use opentrack or freetrack to convert Edtracker (joystick) output to behave like a Tir.
    You can make one on a 'breadboard' and make the connections with wire. No soldering needed.
    But yes easier to buy one in a nice enclosure.
    While I have changed to VR (Hdk2). I did/do enjoy having the Edtracker.

    Well if it works as good as Track IR5 in RRE and AMS then you will love it. :thumbsup:
