I have the same issue

I spoke with the dev team and not being able to hide the yoke has been a design choice on their end for a number of technical reasons.

However, I did hear that in the very first tutorial there is a prompt to hide the yoke, so that cannot be completed in VR. I’ll escalate that to the team. Thanks!
