All good points. Having spent a fair number of hours with FPV goggles flying/racing drones, I’m well aware of the challenges of getting correct eye relief for optimal sharpness. Fogging can happen without a ventilation fan as well. Clearly they won’t work for everyone.
A replica cockpit with a large curved screen would be definitely high on my bucket list. But given that my age, income, and a future of putting 3 individuals through college shed a very dim light on that fantasy. VR googles seem to give maximum return for the investment, as long as one doesn’t mind navigating switches and knobs with a mouse.
Then there is always the problem of dealing with inlaws when your wife proudly displays your man cave. “So this is where our grand daughter’s college fund has been spent, you worthless bastage.”
BTW, like your setup WreckingCrew.
