avallillo Posted March 19, 2019 Share Posted March 19, 2019 At long last it appears that VR may become more reality than virtual in flight simulation. Having been overwhelmed by the concept at last year's FlightSim Expo, but not by the execution at the HTC Vive level (poor resolution - graininess to the point you can't read instruments from normal seating position), I now see that not only 4K has come but also 5K and 8K, courtesy of Pimax. And even better, a 200 degree field of view that should put paid at last to the temptation to follow Dr. Joe Maldonado to the boneyard for another airplane nose (see A Night in Elf Hill, in the features) My questions to any of you who may be in the know -- 1. Is the resolution on either the 5K or 8K Pimax truly good enough to banish the screen door effect forever? 2. Is the 200 degree field of view for real? 3. Will it work with flight sims? I know that the 5K version works with XPlane 11; how about FSX and Aerofly FS2? 4. The unit is, to put it bluntly, enormous -- how much time at the gym sill be required to strengthen the neck muscles to allow more than a 5 minute flight with this thing on!?! And any other comments, yea or nay, that you can offer from the point of view of actually having seen and tried this. Thanks in advance for perhaps sparing me from being in hock to Flight Deck Solutions!! Tony Vallillo Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
