SteamVR / Vive Proper Pawn Set up for Motion Controller Use
I am having some issues with getting motion controller tracking working with 4.10.1.
The two resources I have used are the documentation here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/VR/MotionController/index.html and the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ALnsdQnkVQ
One difference I have noticed is in the video Sam Deiter adds the Steam VR Chaperone to his Pawn as a component. Something not mentioned in the documentation.
Regardless of adding it or not I see zero movement of simple static meshes I have added as children of the motion controller components. Tracking of moving around the space / looking around works just fine as does using the headset and controllers with the SteamVR tutorial.
I am basing my Pawn on DefaultPawn. Here is a picture of the setup: Pawn Setup Image
Any advice on setup, debugging / troubleshooting steps or a sample project to test with beyond the links above would be helpful.

In case anyone else comes across this question looking for a solution. I had a similar issue from following the documentation but was able to solve it by parenting my motion controller components to the Scene component on my vr pawn. I did have to adjust the rotation on the static meshes to get them to orient correctly from the default models from Steam.
I followed these guides from the documentation: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Platforms/SteamVR/QuickStart/2/
