Best Elite Dangerous Mods & Enhancements In 2019 (UPDATED)

HOTAS And Don’t Look Back

Some people spend A LOT of money on their Elite: Dangerous setups (we’ve written about the guy who has spent $14,000+) but getting more control doesn’t have to be extortionate.

A HOTAS gives players full control of their ship, with a thruster to control the speed, a flight stick to control their movement, and buttons to do everything else.  That’s about as in a nutshell as I could make that statement!

HOTAS setups can cost hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.  Fortunately, there are some decent entry-level options that won’t break the bank.

I personally purchased the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Joystick; for £38 you’ll really feel like you’re in control of your very own spaceship, hurtling through space at light speed.  As a by-product of purchasing a HOTAS my accuracy has dramatically increased and I’m finally able to opt for fixed weapons.

If immersion is your goal, an affordable is a strong step in the right direction.

  1. For Head Tracking you missed EDTracker.
    It uses motion sensors, so no need for cameras or darkened rooms. There’s DIY instructions and tools for a microUSB version and a commercial Pro version that comes in wired and wireless variants. Very good indeed, and compatible with facetrackIR and Opentrack software. Cost $10 – $85 depending on what you want.

  2. Yep EdTracker is a minimal spend wired and wireless very effective very responsive a must buy if you’re not going all in on VR
