Like most, I have invested a lot of time and money over the years in FSX so have quite a lot of addons for aircraft, scenery, etc. With this in mind I invested in Flyinside to try out my new toy, the Oculus Rift, to experience VR flying.
I have to say that mountain flying with the Orbx scenery was enjoyable to say the least. A truly new experience for my hobby. Then I started looking at YouTube videos showing off Aerofly FS2 and I thought, after spending all the cash on the Oculus I might as well spend a little more to see whether it compares well to my experience of FSX.
I now find myself looking daily for any news of upcoming scenery and new aircraft for this truly amazing advance in the world of flight simming, especially VR flying. My whole experience has been moved to another level and any expectations of betterment has disappeared. This is the new way forward for flight sim enthusiasts. We will all keep trying to make FSX and P3D look good but they have got a long way to go to offer anything close to what Aerofly FS2 has to offer with VR currently and with the likes of ORBX and Aerosoft showing what they can add to the mix I really believe, once we have the weather programs, the aircraft systems and more scenery that all other contenders will become insignificant.
I may drone on about this but, after being a flight sim enthusiast for over 30 years and watching the genre grow I have finally had the experience that I thought was never possible, out of the box and with no config changes whatsoever.
Thanks to the IPACS team for all your achievements to date as well as all those we have to look forward to...
