I have spend much time on interfacing all my switches and buttons in my cockpit to work with PMDG.

This can be done by EventIDs and FSUIPC but it's a big work.

Roar has developed a small utility which easily connects all your buttons and switches to the PMDG planes. Just press button you want to assign and select the PMDG function in the right side then it works. 

Together with the other utilities from Roar it's very easy to connect Opencockpit modules and hom...

When I made my pedals a year ago I then decided to use gas springs to push the pedals back. But these gas springs are too slow to move back and some times they stuck. So I decided to replace these with normal springs, but it required some customization.

My old setup was now 3 years old and after been using HP Reverb Pro VR headset for nearly a year it was time for a small upgrade. New MB Asus Z-390, Intel i9900K, 32 GB RAM, 2 X 500 GB M.2 harddrives.

I wasn't expecting a huge jump in frames but a smoother scenery. No stutters anymore and now I can be able to fly on EGLL and KJFK add-on scenery. Never been able to fly to those big airports.

It's overclocked to 5.0 GHz and runs great without being hot !

A new headset from HP has just been released. A lot of new headsets are coming and have studied the different ones according to specs etc. My choice this time went for the HP Reverb Pro. You can see my review here

Remember to add the timer key in the registration database:

The Mixed Reality Portal has an idle timer that is used to prevent Screen burn-in on Mixed Reality Headsets. By default, this timer is set to 15 minutes (900,000 milliseconds). Physically m...

Just shared a video showing how I have connected the hardware of my cockpit into PMDG 737NGX

After being a happy user of my Oculus Rift for nearly a year it was time for an upgrade. 

Even that many VR makers are promising new headsets I decided to go for a used HTC Vive Pro. It's not cheap but well know for a good quality and easy setup. Another key issue was support of FlyInside plugin.

Bought it on Ebay UK went smooth expect for delivery handlede by Ebay took 2 weeks !!!

Very easy to setup trough Steam VR and just install the lasted Flyinside plugin...

My Saitek rudder pedals have served me for many years.

But it was time to try to build my own real rudder pedals. You can easily buy a set but they are very expensive. I found a set of 737 pedals on Ebay total cost 120 EUR. 

It's difficult to make the movement of the pedals like the real one so I decided to go for the easy setup where the pedals just are mounted i the button. 

I have use 3 mm steel 40 mm X 40 mm for the pedals arm and 2 mm 30 X 30 mm aluminium...

It's always difficult to decide whenever a hardware upgrade will improve the flightsim performance as expected. Since I moved to VR my old Nvidia 1070 had some troubles when flying in clouds or very bad weather.

I have read many reports about the 2080 series. Some reported better performance other the same. We "simmers" are stuck with still an old platform but since VR will be a big part of mine simming I decided to upgrade to a Asus RTX2080Ti 11GB. 

Ins...

For some people it perhaps don't make any sense to have a Cockpit setup and use VR at the same time !

But for me it does !

Spending many hours in the cockpit you know more or less where all the knobs and switches are placed. When you are having your VR glasses on I just reach out to the switch or knob and moves it. In the VR cockpit you can see the switch move as you move the real one. The most common ones are those on the MCP, EFIS Throttle and so on.

VR ? Hmmmm when having a real size cockpit why looking into VR !!

Couldn't resist to get a couple of Oculus Rift headset. Saw some reviews and it seemed that people where happy about these together with Prepar3D. 

WOW !!!! Once installed everything changed. I was only my intention to fly VFR in small planes. Once in while I have the chance to fly the a real TB10 GT Tobago in Roskilde. This time I installed the TB add-on into P3D and started my Oculus headset...
