  1. XPlane VR Cyclic Control, Rubber Bands, Toilet Roll. Getting it all lined up in VR. Wonky's Blog! 74. After the blast of the opening credits you will have to turn the sound up. Watch out for volume increase at the end, It might give you a heart attack. Probably my most embarrassing video to date!. First part shows the development of my VR Cyclic Controller and in true "Blue Peter" fashion, Rubber bands , plumbers fittings and a toilet roll. For those not in the UK ,Blue Peter was a children's program famous for making toys using things found in the kitchen. I had to make the first part of this video with a webcam, sorry for the sound quality. Part two starting at 8 Mins 50 seconds is how to align the controller in VR and make everything appear in the right place inside your VR experience ie. joystick and VR controller linked and moving the cyclic as if you are inside with everything lined up. If you know a easy way to do this let me know in the comments. I had a few problems with a Oculus download so had to repeat a few bits in this section. This part also shows how good the VR cyclic is over my standard X52 for hovering and precise flight as proven by using Joe Kipfer's hover test program. You can find in the info settings on you tube. I think the experiment has proven its worth proceeding with the VR cyclic minus the toilet roll. But, I will have to think about extending my X52 Joystick to the same 20" extension for my main controller system. It's been great fun testing and trying to come up with ideas without access to a workshop. I always mention my shaky hand and head to promote the dystonia condition and information can be found in the info. Thanks for taking the time to read and watch the video. Things I am sorry about! Sound quality on the webcam at the start. Didn't know the Rift S picked up breathing so well. Still moving my head left and right all the time. Duplicating some of the wording on the second part as I had a Oculus update that crashed my system when filming. Watch out for volume increase at the end, might give you a heart attack.

  2. Why the Rift S Was for Me. Wonky's Blog! 71 So finally I managed to get the Rift S. probably the last person to do a revue but its not a bells and whistles type of thing it's just why it was for me. after the flight sim show I had little doubt the Rift S was the one. Then after flying sorry to say planes for about four hours with the rift S left me in no doubt. Have a listen to me babel on about why and how good it was to meet up with Sergio and guys from Komodo at the show. Its all personnel and so much depends on IPD, Budget and what PC you have. Not much flying and you cant see what I see in the headset so quality has to be seen first hand. I did this time try something with the recording that made the image bigger but didn't give the horrible quality that Oculus mirror gives, a bit of a halfway house to those that sat " I want full screen" and me that wants to see my feet. One thing I will say the mike in the Rift S helped my deep voice quite a lot and less cables not only for the rift but no extra mike.' for everyone else that has a different point of view, enjoy it as I do my new one. VR is the way to go. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun
  3. Rift S and X Plane. Joshua Cowan UH-1 Police Helicopter version is another work of art. It's time to fly! Go download this baby and rescue some people and stuff. Joshua Cowan UH-1 Police Helicopter version is another work of art. You need the original Nimbus UH-1 to start with and then download this beautiful version. Flying at Shoreham using True Earth south. Send him some money to buy more coffee. Only a quick flight and ramble about the helicopter, meeting Sergio and using the Rift S for the second time. My first time with the S and why it was for me will be out on Friday as a Wonky's Blog! Joshua Cowan said. "I really like this one, so I thought it deserved some extra love. Totally redone textures and PBR work of the Nimbus UH-1. The real helicopter was an Army bird and transitioned into the civilian side along with one of the pilots".
  4. X Plane. Flight in the UH-1 To Leeds Castle Using Avitab Moving Maps. Wonky's Bog! 71 A quick Flight to Leeds Castle in the UH-1 using Avitab through a VR window. Some Low level flight and also a change in headset and getting a split sound file to open using DaVinci Resolve as my usual editing software would not open the G force split sound feature. Orbx True Earth South for the scenery, and they have done a good job on the castle. Water looks a bit Green for the moat. But a nice short run from Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent - EGKH to Leeds Castle. A good flight for me as it was pretty much done left handed as I had hurt my left arm walking my dog, managed to hold joystick between my legs and lower the collective when required with my left hand hopping it would stay straight.
  5. X Plane VR Ride to Arundel Castle in the UH-1.Avitab & GTN 750.Wonky's Blog! 70. My VR setup including Avitab and GTN750.

  7. UH-1 And Rolling Stones. Paint it Black. True earth South. Original flown with Oculus Rift and Nimbus UK-1 and True Earth South. Then replay edited to sound track. Nimbus UH-1 and X Plane. Wonky Joysticks, Low Level Heaven. Original video Edited down to fit.
  8. Last 10 miles home to Shoreham low level flight. MD 500 Full Pack. Using the GTN750 to give me the basic rout home . Chase the police car and then last half you can hear the new sounds much better. Video sound is realy dead compared to home speakers.Blade slap starts at 3mins 30 when I just push a bit Harder. Lets not mention the landing approach or the flying through cars and and trees. All the graphs on the left is me trying to get my PC temp down and this was one of the tests. If you like that sort of thing New MSI and Riva tuner let you do a on screen overlay. Once I have everything smooth the it can come off as i do see a small frame hit. Again thanks to everyone that has made this helicopter a reality. Dave
  9. VR flight in the NIMBUS SIMULATIONS HUEY FOR X-PLANE, Wonk's Blog 67. With luck it should have processed in 4K by now! I have just finished my first VR flight in the NIMBUS SIMULATIONS HUEY FOR X-PLANE. It was pure joy. I know its a smaller screen but this is a 4k video, I think in VR we need to see more up and down. We waited a long time for this and it looks and flies like a dream. It's a shame my voice over cant let the full sound come through. I have posted a flat screen version of a flight with no voice over at the usual helicopter simulation sites so you can hear what it sounds like Wonky's Blog! 66. This is the start off Low Level Heaven for me. Comparisons to DCS, I would just say the interior is softer, more used looking but in a good way. Flight dynamics just feel right. I am not a real world pilot but I would hope this is what it would have been like, minus the fear, smell, smoke, bullets, and vibration.
  10. X Plane,Vskylabs jet Pack. Some test flights from the last few days. Wonky's Blog! 65 I have a love of Helicopters and Jet Packs ever since I was a young boy and saw the James Bond film Thunderball in 1965. Vsky labs have had this jet pack available free for sometime and I have only just started to play with it when I saw they are working on a new version! It's great fun, Heli pilots will find it a new challenge. In flat screen you get a head up display to help you. In VR you are flying y the seat in your pants as they say. It would be hard to count how many times I ould have broken my legs. but in the video at at 2 mins 30 I am starting to get the hang of it. Good on Vskylabs for doing the more unusual mode of transport again. Video of this flight can be found in the video section.

  14. And so at last I have managed it! Much less mushiness. And it makes a big difference if you are posting helicopter stuff. I had to use 4k 4096x2160 50P H.264AVC from my Cyberlink power director to get the better VP09 from you tube and it looks better straight away. And they say it should improve over the next few hours. what do you think? still not as good as the original but better. This is the link you can compare with the video below. New upload 4k 4096x2160 50P H.264AVC forces you-tube to use the V09
  15. X Plane VR Flight 40 FPS ish. with Avitab. OVR and the AB412. Wonkys Blog! 62. And so this will be the last one I do on FPS for a while as it is such a movable feast and every one has to find your own sweet spot. I was more than happy with everything turned right up and x plane showing 22.5 FPS at Shoreham. but if you follow all the groups they say it has to be 45FPS. So in this video I go for the 40+ FPS i turn antialazing right down but turn up super sampling to 1.5 to sharpen up everything. Also running Avitab map mode and OVR. The video does not do justice to how good it looks. I also had a problem on the upload that makes the sound squeak now and again. I have no idea on that one. I have kept it in the single long view as that gives the best resolution the original was captured in G Force Capture in 4 k mode so that it could be blown up if required to fill the screen but this is what it looks like in the headset. Sorry as usual for the constant looking left and right but when I fly that what I do as I am generally quite low. Engine off auto at the end just about made it. Please also remember the condition I suffer from and have a look at the dystonia website as one day you might see the tell tale signs in yourself or members of your family. It's often confused with Parkinson's but is not the end of the world please have a look and make people more aware of the condition.
  16. The Mach Loop consists of a series of valleys in the United Kingdom in west-central Wales, notable for their use as low-level training areas for fast jet aircraft. But here is the great AB412 on it's way round.
  17. X-Plane 9-10-FPS Answer for London City Airport on my system. VR flight around Airport and London.What a few days! Anyone who has followed my problems with the very low frame rates after downloading the Orbx city Airport and upgrading the libraries will know that I ended up with 9-10FPS on my standard settings that previously gave 40-60 FPS on a flat-screen. VR was impossible. One of the guys on the Orbvx forums put me in the right direction by deleting the preferences folder? This was new to me so I can't say why it works but the results proved to be worth the effort. I still get the stutters now and again but for flying low down in a very graphics-rich area it seems to work. I must apologise if this has been discussed before, but I have my sanity back. sorry for the voice also this is a part of my condition called dystonia and even that had to go in a sound editor, what ever next. The file that has to be deleted is D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\X-Plane 11\Output\preferences but you leave the one yellow one called control profiles. The downside is that this file on my system gets corrupted again and I have to do the process again before each evenings flight. I am running steam x plane in beta, and it could be my system. But the benefit for VR in the Orbx London area with city airport is well worth it. If you try it let me know if it cures any other low VR frame rate issues at other locations. I also had problems with oculus tray working sometimes really well and then next time not so good. Oh! for the day you just switch your computer on and it just works. Visual Effects 1 up, Texture quality 3 up, Anti aliasing 0, Number of worlds objects 3 up, Reflection at 0, No parked Aircraft. Oculus tray 1.4. no ASW.

  18. I am having to delete the x plane preference file for every session after installing all the new library, London City Airport, and the update on true earth south. 9 to 10 FPS and the delete the file x plane preference file and restart 36 FPS for that one x plane session. But when it runs at 36 FPS London city airport looks fantastic. Posted a few screen shots in the screenshot group. and here is a a low down under London bridge to shows it does run at 36 FPS after deleting the file and starting again. It could be steam, It could be X Plane Beta, It could be Orbx. I dont think it's me as DCS and Arma11 are all fine. But it looks fantastic when it runs. Dave. Wonky Joystick Productions.
  19. X Plane.VR Recording with G Force Card. MD 500. How to use OBS to output VR recordings. Wonky's Blog! 58. Also, apologies to JOE HUDSON as I didn't give him the credit for the paint job! and said it was Brett. I can only say I am a babbling fool and should get my facts right. First let me say have a look at the MD500 review by Joe Hudson on the Helisimmer page link below: The original work by BRETTS HUGHES, has been updated to the New Hughes 500D that also included work by Alex Gifford, Ben Russell and an updated version of the SASL conversion by OzWookiee . From the information in the review, it helped me work out the best settings I have found for flying the MD500 as shown in this video. Also, I should mention that we should all be ticking the send data to Laminar box also shown in the video. They need to know that we are flying in VR and also Helicopters are on the increase due to the VR experience. Finally a way of recording VR flight with a G Force card and use OBS to make it the screen size that you want. sorry for the really croaky voice this week and my dog barking in the background.

  20. X Plane, How Wonky's Blog is put together, OBS and G-Force Capture software. The Power director editing. I hope it's enough to get people started on making videos for X Plane. Had a week off from X Plane and couldn't think of a subject this week. So I am showing how I put the blog together using OBS and G Force capture. I also show my own set-up at home. Sorry about the shaky video bit that the dystonia condition that I suffer with. For more information about Dystonia click the link below. I do try and promote awareness of the condition, you also might hear it called essential tremor. But if you or a friend ever start to shake when trying to drink from a cup or can't hold your hands or head still then please look at the link below.

  21. X Plane Wonky's Blog! 52. Having a closer look in VR at some of the textures In Orbx true Earth South/London. Finally back in the seat again after having a few bad weeks with my Dystonia problems. Made the big 100 subscribers so thanks to everyone that pressed that button. So only a quick flight in the Cabri having a closer look at the Orbx textures for London. Also for some reason called the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge the Queen Mary Bridge? Hopefully back on my feet again and will get back into the swing of things. Thanks for all the good wishes on Facebook. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun
  22. X Plane. Vskylabs Autogyro. Wonky's Blog! 51. Sorry to say not much going on this week been laid up in bed with my dystonia problems but managed to get some more footage of the Vdkylabs autogyro at Shoreham and at Machmell Fisheries. Just some more fun and games. also starting to wonder if Orbx have it in for me as two new trees have popped up on the Shoreham test track that I use for low-level flying blocking the route, and that other Helicopter is still on the Helipad spoiling all the hover practice at Shoreham. Its a good job Orbx are doing such a good job or I might complain.
  23. X Plane. VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter. Wonky's Blog! 50. The VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter Project add-on for X-Plane 11. At last the Chance to fly in VR a Gyrocopter over London. Even Tower Bridge opened up for me as I approached. At the eight-minute mark.for those that can't watch it all. Should I call it a shopping basket with blades on top?" The VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter Project is a highly accurate lightweight Gyroplane flight dynamics and handling simulation, designed for X-Plane 11.
  24. Goodbye Old Friend. Wonky The 1st has passed on and been replaced with an X52 Hotas. Wonky's Blog47! Wonky finally called it a day last Friday and has now been replaced with an X52 HOTAS. Not to much content in this Blog As I get used to the new stick, But it does Mean I can now get back into some DSC content. If anyone has the answer to the X52 pinkie button problem please let me know. Youtube and the web do not seem to know the answer to why it disappears as a modifier button even when programmed directly into DCS. I will try much harder in the next video.
