I am new to VR using Oculus Rift S on P3D4, and cannot figure out how to:

1) Get into the pilot's seat.

2) See my hands in P3D.

Grateful for any guidance.

I initially had the same problem with positioning myself into the pilots seat.  I have Chaseplane installed and moved the camera position, using my assigned joystick buttons, until it gave me the appearance of being where the pilots head should be.  I'm not sure how to permanently fix the location so that it defaults to the pilot's position on startup, currently I have to change location everytime.

1) The control command is Relcalibrate origin, which defaults to Shift+ Ctrl+ ,

Also under the virtual reality dropdown, you can select calibrate origin as well.

In chase plane you just go into the camera position settings and set everything to 0 and you will have your captain's seat. Then you can fine tune to your liking. And as said above, recalibrate position in the menu or the short cut command. You should always recalibrate as soon as you enter VR.

Thank you Soloraj, Hi Flyer and Andreh

I have not yet found where to recalibrate, but I note its importance.

Chaseplane is new to me and I will consider getting it.

In the P3D VR menu/Recalibrate Origin. 

Right below Enable VR.

Most of us map a button on our joystick/throttle (Like the Thrustmaster HOTAS ) to recalibrate origin.


PC=9700K@5Ghz+RTX2070  VR=HP Reverb|   Software = Windows 10 | Flight SIms = P3D, CAP2, DCS World, IL-2,  Aerofly FS2
