As I am sure many on the Pimax forums are aware, as are most of the Pimax staff by now, that the Pimax 5k+/8k and 8kx series of headsets were badly affected by EMI/RFI and Ground Loops.
It was noticed by myself when I was having flashes and blackouts and I couldn’t figure out the issue.
At one time, it was because i was wearing an APPLE WATCH during sim racing… Took it off, and poof the issue was gone.
Then when I added a motion simulator, immediately the issues started up again with the blackouts, flashes, tracking loss, etc.
Touching the sides of the HMD would cause gray-outs, and if prolonged, would blackout. When turning off my motion simulator, it wasn’t as bad and i could touch the sides for a few seconds and ever cover the sides with my hands without having a gray-out.
I then found out that my 8kx cable was touching my aluminum extrusion motion simulator platform, and just by laying across it, was causing flashes and blackouts - so i hung up the wire over the ceiling with ceiling hooks.
To get a long story short, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Make sure the new Pimax 12k QLED is built with proper EMI/RFI Shielding and with a proper ground - Other HMD’s are also affected, but the Pimax hmd’s are affected the worst of all of them.
As many of us sim racers know, just by having a Direct Drive Wheel, many have had these blackouts and flashes, or from any number of accessories. We need a proper VR Headset - I hope the 12K QLED will be the one!
