Re: Wot VR

...a shopping list: controllers, rudder pedals.... Having a good HOTUS and good table mounts make flying so natural. You might not think the different types matter for rudder pedals but I used CH plastic ones for a while and then bought MFG Crosswinds. They make such a difference. Now I'm in France...

Re: VR thoughts

VR is amazing. Headset ...you could go for the Pimax 8k (https://www.pimax.com/) but your hardware won't run it and you'll have to have very low frame rates or graphics settings. The Reverb (https://www8.hp.com/us/en/vr/reverb-vr-headset.html) is very sharp but has less of a FOV.... Or you can go f...

HP Reverb Professional Edition VR headset (v2)

I think Merlin has a new Valve Index and someone else is also going to order a Valve Index. No one has the HP Reverb. Are there reasons to choose one over the other? My HP Reverb Professional (v2) VR headset arrived at my US address today and I'll arrive there Wednesday night. I guess the horse has ...

Yes, the squadron you're involved in is respected. The others drink sheep dip if we're to be believed. :Biggrin Friendly rivalry, involving slander, false rumor and of course knives.
