hi! expert opinion needed please!if I use the vr920, can I still use the mouse to click on switches? I want my right hand on the stick while a wiimote in a glove on my left hand (button B being ripped out & wired to a 'push to talk' switch on the radial side of my index finger which my thumb can press) functions as a mouse... that way I can use my left hand for the throttle quadrant, and then reach up to hit buttons. BUT, if the vr920 just emulates a mouse then it's not going to work and there's no point my buying one. UNLESS windows 7 allows multiple mice, and FSX allows me to bind one to mouselook and another to the cursor. heck I'd get another wiiimote data-glove for my right hand too! (it'd only cost about

Yes -- the goggles are only the screens (two for 3D with the appropriate 3D driver for your video card), plus a sensor to change the views (not by mouse nor by joystick), plus earphones and mike. It doesn't replace any of the controls you need or want to fly or control the aircraft.I tried then for a while: fun, but I couldn't wear them for long periods at a time -- after 20-30 minutes it was enough!Pete
