Oculus, FSX:SE, FlyInside, Leap Motion, PMDG737NGX

Recommended Posts


This is a problem I have with accessing the Cockpit controls in the PMDG737NGX in FSX:SE whilst using the Oculus Rift, FlyInside and Leap Motion.

Is it a Leap Motion problem, A FlyInside Problem, or a PMDG737NGX problem.

Basically I am trying to start the PMDG737NGX from Cold & Dark using my hands in the cockpit with Leap Motion. Most of the swiches, dials, etc seem to work ok (although some can be quite annoying to operate!). However there are some of the switches that I just cannot get to work at all.

1. Transfer the APU Power to BUS

2. Transfer Ground Power to BUS

3. Either of the engine start switches

Without these switches I cannot start the 737. Is there anyone out there with the same configuration (or similar) that can tell me if PMDG have implemented these switches in Leap Motion? Also any hints or tips when using the PMDG in VR.

I do not use leap motion.

From my own experience i can confirm that it is not possible to use the FlyInside laser pointer to toggle those specific switches. Practically all the others work though. So you have to use the mouse, which, with a little practice and patience, is not all that uncomfortable anyway (provided the sim is running smooth enough)

You can also designate a controller button to those switches using LINDA (lua scripts), that way you do not have to use the mouse.

I am using a hardware yoke, a hardware throttle and MPC Combo (1st generation) and it only takes time and practice to find your way around it blindly.
