  1. Likewise @ROCKET_KNUT 👍 Thank you!
  2. Purchased, looking forward to VR support for it.
  3. While I have a Valve Index, which I rate very highly, I’d recommend OP consider a Rift S as it’s probably the lowest entry cost in both monetary and PC hardware requirement terms. It will also be easy to set up. IL-2 has very good VR implementation. OP, you will need to check your hardware meets the minimum requirements for the one you decide on but the immersion of VR is simply amazing so in my opinion is well worth the investment. Another one to consider is the upcoming HP Reverb G2 which is reportedly due out later this year but that will need a beefy PC.
  4. Very nice work mate, and well presented too.👍 I’ll get back into it when time allows.
  5. It could be fun and something to look forward to. As it’s by EA I will temper my expectations accordingly.
  6. I have to politely disagree, I use the blip switch a lot in my Camel. It is useful in combat and when landing. I can turn faster with some application of the blip switch and also when doing a split S. If you watch Requiem’s excellent tutorial on the Camel he recommends using it when landing.
  7. It worked for me in my Sopwith Camel. It came as a surprise to me and in VR was a very interesting experience, as in not burning to death because the Air Ministry don’t issue us with a parachute! My letters to them on the matter have all gone unanswered. 😀
  8. And I need to find a place for a ‘One beer please’ button like on the Volans.
  9. I think I have worked out a design. I will be in touch soon @GVL224
  10. Hmmm. What do your other modules cockpits look like for you?
  11. These look ideal for a simpit but what about those of us who prefer or need an easily disassembled desktop set up, e.g. using Monstertech mounts or similar?
  12. Well, I’m using VR and the cockpits in FC look very authentic and natural to me. That image/screen capture you post looks oversharpened or something like that. What sort of rig do you have?
  13. I could write pages about my enjoyment of IL-2 in VR. To be in the cockpit of a Spitfire, start it up, taxi out then take off is pure joy. I too build up a sweat in a fight as it seems so real. My heart races. Then to survive and land at mission’s end. I remember to breath again as I shut the Merlin down. Solo flight, scripted campaigns or multiplayer, it is simply amazing in VR and I hope everyone gets to experience it. Highly recommended!
  14. I’m glad I came across this thread. Now, to work out what I need...
