Is this thing really only $1000? It seems that the buyer provides the chair- does it come with a frame on which to mount ones peripherals?

Hi, yer the buyer provides the chair but everything else is provided, if you wish to have an extra mount they may charge and extra $50 but so far this set up has been amazing.


I have had this for a month and no problems to date


I'm going to make a review video as not many are out there so hopefully can post one later for you

This looks very interesting! How do the rift sensors keep track with the chair movement?

No problems at all. I have two sensors facing the front of the chair.

Even with one I had no problems at all.

But how does it distinguish between headset movement due to the chair and your movement looking around? or is the sensor mounted to chair so chair movement is zeroed out?

No they are in the room corners. To date I haven't noticed any issues with the chairs movement effecting the headset position.


Normally I'm moving my head so don't notice and change. Although I'm sure it will slightly move.

Hey Ravens, Very nice!

I'm quite interested in this so could you answer a couple of questions?

First off, how do you find the senasation of movement?

Does it take the joystick inputs from DCS and accurately translates this into movement of the rig?

How noisey is it when running?

Did you have to pay import duties? (I'm also in the UK ).

Do you know if it would take a centrally mounted joystick?

Many thanks!

No problems

First off, how do you find the senasation of movement?
The movement is only slight as you can see in the video BUT the sensation is very realistic, it's like starting in the rift for the first time - you will get motion sickness again

But it's a must have for vr, the Emerson is there, I tend to be aware harsh turns will be violent so I try to be as smooth as possible.



Does it take the joystick inputs from DCS and accurately translates this into movement of the rig?
Setup is tricky without a hrlp section within dcs, I'm 98% there and willing to help anyone out. But in short yes it's there (I'm going to do a full video to show this soon)

How noisey is it when running?
This is a bad point for me, the electrics box has two small fans which are set to run at a very high speed, it is noisy. I had to place resistors in the fan loop to slow them down as the speed is way to high.

The noise is now the same as a pc running.



Did you have to pay import duties? (I'm also in the UK ).
Nope nor tax l the way they shipped this was as warranty parts so it avoided these fees which is a great saver, but I advise you mention his when placing an order

Do you know if it would take a centrally mounted joystick?
Yes it will, it comes with various options for mounts, I chose the side mount as it's more comfortable for me

I hope this help but i will make a full review video shortly

Excellent! Many thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

I look forward to your review video!

One quick question, in describing the setup as tricky without having a "hrlp section" in DCS. Is that refering to the name of the unit?

Cheers!
