Thanks for sharing that HF. It's sounding promising

apart from vrfsg mentioning it's a heavy headset, has anyone seen specs of it's actual weight, fully kitted out or minimal?

I'm hoping Somnium are soliciting feedback from others regarding flight sim use and not just Steve though. Everyone has their own wishlist when it comes to VR and ideally you want more than one voice to help shape the final product.

Requires base stations doesn't it? Non-starter for me if that's the case.

Yup, puts me in the same boat. Would love it to have side out tracking.
