I use the Reverb G2 with a custom mask, and have a Custom Built PC at 5 GHZ. Strix 3090 OC and I can fly with EVERYTHING in ultra VR at 100% rendering and still get 27-30 FPS pretty steady. I can actually see more detail in VR than on my wide 3440x1440 monitor because things look closer to real life in size and distance. It is not as “sharp” as a monitor for sure, but it feels more real. I can read all my instruments without zooming. Many who had bad VR experiences is because their gear is not top notch and they tried it before the SIM update patch came out, that almost double the FPS. If you can not fly at or close to 30 FPS with everything ultra at 100 rendering, then you did not fully experienced the VR effect. My Track IR which I deeply enjoyed, is now collecting dust. To me, VR is as real as it gets, and for anything keyboard, I use an app called VoiceTrack. I still use my Logitech Radio Panel which sits on top of my Bravo Quadrant to change the radio and NAV frequencies.
For anyone reading this thread, don’t be discouraged, because when someone posts something they like or dislike, will be followed by responses from lots of folks that feel the same way. If you have top of the line equipment and I mean TOP of the line, then go ahead and try it. I can afford any monitor size I want (the benefit of being retired) and still fly VR only.
I wear prescription glasses, so I ordered glasses inserts from Germany and they work awesome. I do not get motion sickness, like some people do.
It is all a matter of preference, so the best thing to do is to try it on a top of the line system (did I emphasized this enough?) . I know in Europe there are some VR shops where you can try different sets. I don’t know of any here in the US.
When I fly Jets at high altitude, it is nice to look at the clouds (what else can you look at?) and you have to sit there for hours staring at the instruments. Once I am at FL I take the headset off for breaks. With the current state of the SIM, I have TC disabled, so I don’t even have to listen to them.
