Third Sensor Placement

DerServyDerServy Posts: 9
Hello! I hope you all had a great chirsmas time! 
But now, I wanted to know, if I place the 3 Sensors like they show in their "Roomscale Setup" (2 in front, 1 in the back left/right)
and I place the third sensor behind me on the right side, will my hands be tracked when I turn left? Like that I am facing away from all sensors.
And can I place them like this:

Its just about the placement, not the distance of the sensors.
Im just cant understand how the recommended 3 sensor setup would track (one area) behind you. (The opposite side of the rear sensor.)
Thx for ur replies :)

    Recommendation is always to have the 3rd sensor at 90° to one of the front ones.
    Mine is set up as recommended and works fine.

    Okay, and how far do I need to place the 2 front sensors away from my play area? Because in my room it would be like 20 cm. And what do you mean with 90° to on of the front ones?

    Well I dont have that space. I cant set them one meter apart from my play area....
