    incredible!! Any chance of getting some more details / drawings of your box? Having a similar problem I‘d love to get some more information / details from your solution. Are you selling drawings / plans?

      Thanks!
      I do have some plans. I’ve said I will tidy them up and post them, but I haven’t had time.
      Here’s the build thread.

          Wow! That looks great!!!!

          I made some small progress:
          - I 3d printed switches and placed them on the panels. They are for now not functional. I did this to test if the locations match the VR cockpit
          - For the same reason I also made the hand rail. I installed only the left
          - I started building a prototype of the upfront panel including the mfds
          - I painted the wooden frame white so it looks a little bit better

          What do you think?

                I made some progress. I switched from vr to both vr and non vr. Also, for now I use F4toserial which for the non vr experiance only supports F4 bms. The succesor of f4toserial will also support dcs. Thats why i used bms for this short first test flight. The landing is terrible but i was just trying out if the pit worked.

                        Very nice chessna cockpit.

                        Do you already have VR experience with flight sims?

                        In VR no need for a cockpit when you are flying jets with HOTAS. You just need throttle and stick at the correct position in space. (Important for immersion). A configurable chair is also nice for immersion (I use a used car chair as desktop chair and flight seat.)

                        For all switches and buttons not on the HOTAS I use DCS clickable cockpit.

                        Use an used stable office desk with drawers.

                        one of the left drawers -> Throttle
                        one of the right drawers -> Stick (F16 no need for deskmount)

                        Invest the saved money in a nice Hardware, HOTAS and HMD.

                        You can switch very fast from cockpit to office desk as a bonus. :-)

                        I appreciate a nice cockpit and the creativity for conventional simming, but in VR I feel like it is a waste of resources ;-)

                          Thanks for watching. I do have a vr headset and I use it in the pit when I fly dcs. BMS doesnt support vr.
