This may sound very basic to all of you experienced VR flight simmers, but, I don't have a clue as how to fly an airplane in VR. I still have my Rift unopened in the box. I am waiting for my new PC to arrive mid week and I just ordered a couple of wall mounts for the sensors after watching a video.
I watched BelGeode's Cessna flight between Marathon and Key West and was trying to figure out how he was able to turn the lights on and off, adjust the Heading, AP and such. He states that he only flies in VR. I have Saitek Cockpit gear and use the individual x52 Pro Throttle and Flight Controller when flying AFS2 airplanes now. Will I use them once the VR in installed?
I have more than 5,000 logged hours of flight time and about 15 minutes total time under the VR hood at two demos during the Christmas holidays. I can't imagine using Rift Touch Controllers to flip the proper switches or to adjust the throttles or fine adjustments to the yoke when flying an approach. I needed help picking up the machine gun in one of the demos.
Could someone give me an overview of a flight in either the Cessna or Lear using the Rift VR? Any tips, cautions, pointers, limitations? I'm guessing you fly while seated.
