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.

The ortho around the Isle of Man is on another level to the rest of the UK scenery, so I thought I'd check it out, close and personal in VR
Hi, After a very long break from FSX I jumped into XP11 because of the TrueEarth UK scenery. Always preferred to see the real thing out the aircraft window and now we can as the TE scenery is totally fantastic My background is virtual tours so made up a few views of TE Central for anyone that wants to take a look in this format. You view in a VR headset, Google Cardboard etc. by moving your head around or also on your monitor as you would a regular virtual tour / Google Street view. When using the Oculus browser inside the headset, open the page as you normally would and the 360’s will be shown on the browser window in front of you. You can of course view the tour this way using your hand pointer but to go full VR click on the Enter VR button to be immersed into the scenery and can look around with head movements. To view another scene / location look down towards your feet and the left and right arrows will appear. Look directly at the arrows until the next / previous loads. If you only have a Google Cardboard / plastic headset, open the link and then touch the icon highlighted in green below which will switch it to side by side view. Now you can stick the phone in the headset and take a look around. Please note that I've only checked this tour on the latest Gear VR with a Samsung S8 mobile and also using the phone in those cheap Google Cardboard / plastic headsets. * When in the Oculus App, there's currently an issue viewing full VR mode on the Samsung VR browser but trying to fix that. Here's the link to the small tour and many thanks to Orbx for getting me back into a flightsim again. Some pics have HDR switched on in the XP11 graphic settings and I also have XVision installed but no idea if that's working correctly http://cicadastudio.com/orbx/ Cheers, Andrew
Hey Orbx Devs, I have a very simple question regarding the unified lookup with FTX regions. I am beta testing Flyinside P3D, and my VAS requirements for VR are different from desktop simmer. I can't find a clear answer about FTX regions and openLC NA. So, I do know that once you install PNW, PFJ, etc these sceneries get migrated and installed fine. But if I want to disable them for testing and I need to that region in openLC-NA for example CYVR area. So all I have to do is disable them in the scenery and rerun global vector tool and everything will result back to openLC-NA. Or do I need to other stuff. Know if I have installed PNW with some airports KFHR and if I untick that too, will everything go back into openLC mode. Can I assume that installing FTX regions modifies the terrain.cfg and even if I load the sim with PNW sceneries disabled, the PNW terrain values exist in terrain.cfg and no harm will come to the sim? Thanks
