Creating New P3D Views in Windows Mixed Reality

Recommended Posts

Hi all, please can someone help out here -

I'm now using WMR and Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR to fly using P3D and after 2 weeks I'm delighted. The res is so good that I can use the instruments completely, from tuning the radio to reading the altimeter subscale - astonishing!

Trouble is, although I can go through the pre and post-flight checklists on the helicopter's tablet, I'm having to reach forward so far that it's physically uncomfortable (almost painful!) on my neck. Now it would be just as bad in the real Cabri G2 if I used the on-board tablet, which is why I use a paper checklist in real life. But inside the HP Reverb headset I can't see the paper headset. At this stage I'd like to point out very strongly that this is not a complaint about VR, quite the opposite. But clearly inside the headset I can't see paper checklists or charts without getting neck ache.

Please can anyone reveal a solution? I know about FlyInside and would consider buying this. But is it possible to create suitable "views" in P3D? I can create a new window on the flat screen display but it doesn't show up inside the headset.

Hope you can help.
