hi there,

i bought abrand new pc with every intention of running IL2 : Forgotten battles ( best flight sim ) at the best and most realistic possible setting.
Does anyone really know how i can get a good VR headset and I don't just mean a tv set I mean one that pans around when I do with sound.
What ever happened to this concept and is there a credible website around?

These things are very expensive so very few are using it. Probably they are only used in professional environment.

The expense is not important only user friendliness and compatability.

please post any relevant web sites that you know of.

If expense is not relevant, then the website I've given already has everything you need to purchase V-Reality hardware... and for flight sim I think combination of high resolution Head Mounted Display and Gyroscopic Head Tracking device would be superb. I personally never tried any of these, I can only say that I have heard that image quality on the display systems are quite good, and the Gyroscopic tracking system can be only better then TrackIR which I, and so many others, use.

You might wanna email them and ask any relevant questions.

The thing that occurs to me, where FB is concerned, is that there are so darn many controls that are assigned on the keypad (how do you see to find it all?). I'm assuming that if you are going to this expense, you are going to have a nice HOTAS controller set, and could pretty well memorize all your assignments and go by feel?

Good Luck, (and I wish that I had your budget http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

Forget VR headsets. They suck. You'll just be throwing your money away.

I saw a single-projector, multi-screen setup on the avsim forums. It looked like it might work quite well.
