go VR you will throw your monitors away.

 

... and your eyes retina as well!!!

 

Think and read - while you can - before jumping on the last piece of technology released...

Except that I can't afford it, especially here in Brazil, I fully agree with you.

I am sorry you cannot afford it, as you probably know if you have the rift and VR you are now sitting in the cockpit, I would say VR will make spending thousands of dollars on setting up a home built cockpit will be redundant, infact I had a basic cockpit set up with mcp, efis, rudder pedals, throttle from throttelek and a short throw 1080p projector, most of it is all sold, that is how good i think Vr is.

Until they come out with a VR glove so I can reach and operate my modules "yoke/landing gear/buttons and switches/  etc VR is out the question to me. :smile:

have you tried leapmotion ? i control the pmdg 737 mcp, lights, autopilot, fd, etc with my hands, although I still use mouse for programming the fmc, and a few other things.

I am not questioning this. I watched hundreds of VR videos and read tons of reports and I fully agree with you: VR is the future of flight simulation. This is also is one of the several reasons why I am supporting Aerofly FS 2. If I had the money, be sure it would on the top of my to-buy list today.

I hope this technology will become available for about 500 Euros/dollars and several optimizations in a matter of 2-3 years. Given the price it is being offered today, especially outside US, it is well beyond my reach.

yes like with all technology it is inevitable prices will go down, I was in a fortunate position that selling my cockpit hardware paid for my rift and some.

 

VR at its current state does have some short comings, mainly not a crisp and clear than a 2d monitor, however i think within 5 years the prices will come down and the resolution of these things will go up, that is just the way technology is, no doubt we will need to have even faster computers to handle it all.

 

Just last night I did a short flight from Boston to KJFK in the PMDG 737 in full VR, did a manual approach and it was a breeze would not have dreamt of such a nice manual approach looking at a 2d monitor,  landed and taxied to the gate and I just shook my head in disbelief how good VR is and where we have come from, (remembering the flightsim 98 days when I first started with flight simulator way back then).
