D9 Bubble Canopy

Recommended Posts

Does the Bubble canopy brings more protection for the pilot ?

I mean the headrest which is way much bigger than the one on Anton series which is thinner...

 

Because the plane is 1 km/h faster with the default canopy

 

Thanks

In real life it was purely to improve pilot visibility because there was more room to look around.

Is it really worth losing a whole 1km/h though?

Well, i never noticed a better visibility in any sim with the bubble canopy 😕

 

That’s a very strange thing.

Are you wearing a hockey helmet?

Only a VR one xD

 

More seriously, if there is a increased rear view ability, this one is marginal

I'm in VR too and i don't know how you can think that. what I do to get my "supernatural neck twist" is to look to the right Center VR view, then look to the left. that allows me to look behind me in VR . It is a little inconvinient but it's better than not being able to check six. with this "trick" bubble canopys are great! (and mirrors too)

Why don't you just turn around in your seat? I just do this

Because if i try to do that, no blood gets to my brain and i blackout. plus my  CV1 ribbon cable broke so bad that the IR leds in the back of the unit don't light up anymore. 

 

even if inconvenient, my "trick" is much less so than that XD
