Just to make some observations since I got most of my new system. All observations were made from the configuration below.
New motherboard with 8th generation processor.
New install of Windows Insider build 17128, which is or is close to the one to be released to the public next month.
GTX 980, for now.
HMD Odyssey VR headset
Not using SteamVR beta
Just some general things so far.
Feedback is being received from the controllers. Now wondering about battery life.
Still making every effort to keep both controllers in the field of view to keep then from losing accuracy. I have asked Samsung community as to the availability of an external tracker but that option does not currently seem to be available.
I am making a greater effort to look through the sweet spot in the center of the viewer, which does help with instrument clarity. Possibly the Video card upgrade in a few days will help.
I was flying a route from point A to point B and during the climb, the throttles went to idle several times for no reason I could see. The aircraft stopped its climb several times without a reason I could determine and it seemed to happen at around 12,000 feet on the way to 25,000 feet. These situations never happened when using my old system. The throttle reduction and climb deviations did not seem to be related.
Right now I will say the biggest problem with the Hands and the Odyssey headset is the loss of controller position accuracy.
Thanks for reading.
