  • You can build a 'simpit' with as much room possible for movement with the motion controllers but there will always be places hard to reach in VR. In that case I use the mouse in VR....


    i5-7400@3GHz, 8GB RAM, GTX1060 3GB, Lenovo Explorer, 'Vintage' Pro Flight Trainer.

    PC still fast enough to run Aerofly FS2 in VR at Medium/High settings!

  • The solution is moving back from the PC into the free area. If you need to fly with a physical yoke then you'll probably will need to have some form of contraption to fix the yoke in place directly in front of you. You can also move back and then re-center your view, e.g. if the autopilot is on. That gives you enough room to work with the vr hands. When you want to resume the manual flight you move your chair back forward and press the recenter button again.


    The real world is somewhat limiting the virtual space here :D

  • 👏👏👍 thank you 😃
