    I own a Pimax 4K headset and bought a Leap Motion so I could play some Steam games that require basic controller functions. That kinda works but not good enough.

    Finger movements are detected by the Leap Motion (Orion) software but it will also move the controllers a bit so it hinders good hand tracking and accuracy.

    Now with this Driver4VR software came the possibility to add buttons to the controller by using cheap bluetooth joysticks. Lovely concept but I have some issues.

    My bluetooth joysticks were very cheap ($2.00) and bought on Ali Express (China).
    Some issues I have:
    1. Bluetooth 2.0 dongle in Windows 7 asks for a pairing pincode, which won’t work.
    2. Bluetooth 4.0 dongle in Windows 10 works and will pair without asking pincode.
    3. The detection of the button presses is not consistent. Also the pairing of the joysticks is not always as stable as it should.

    I don’t know if I have poorly made joysticks or if something else is interfering with the signal. I think I am going to order a new set of joysticks just to see if they work better. Doesn’t cost much to try, will only take another 10 days or so.

    Yes, taking cheap parts often is enough but sometimes does not work so well.
    I had urgent case recently and purchased very expensive DVI to HDMI adapter and later ordered about 8 times cheaper(!) and I found that this cheaper was giving me extra 5 horizontal blue lines on monitor…


    Hey Greg,

    Can you recomend a bluetooth vr controller? by the way the default position of the hands is palms facing down so the controller must be tied to the hand, I made some changes to the settings so the default is thumb facing up but I noticed wierd behaviors in tracking..can you tell if this is something to be address in the next releases?

    I have two different clones of this with Polish brand:

    They are similar hwoever I can see difference in construction so it is definitively not 1 to 1 copy with different brand. Unfortunately I cannot tell which one works better or not.
