720 degree flight simulator hardware

This will be my new setup… just need to win the lottery

I’m curious about the power needs…

Odd no clips with VR helmets, as that would be ideal, what with field of view etc. That way could introduce a feeling of acceleration a bit disconnected from what you see on the screen. Nintendo even have a decent Mario Karts VR like that - would love it with Dirt Rally :slight_smile:

Yeah… And are they fast enough? If they lag behind the visuals, you will get motion sickness. Would be fun to try it out though.


No MiG-21 then! that thing rolls in under a second…


Full motion attempts to mimic accelerations not rates. This is why I think Mario Kart would be much harder to simulate convincingly than DCS. Whatever. My stomach would last about 5 seconds in that contraption!

Which is why these 360° thingys are a bad idea. I doubt you can make them fast enough, and it would be impossible to simulate a 1g roll, or a loop, when you hang upside down. Becuse you’re going to be -1g on top, no matter how hard you pull in the sim.

In that regard, +/-60° would be plenty.


This looks cheap!


Those things on the back of the hand seem to allow simultanous use of real life controller and your virtual hands - why don’t we have this for the Rift? :slight_smile:
