I just got the 1.38 update with the firmware update. My mic hasn't dropped out yet. Maybe that fixed it. Before it would drop out every other time I entered /exited DCS World with VR enabled, especially if I was using VAICOM.

Belay my last. Just checked Rift S mic not responding. Normal headset mic working perfectly.

I have been lucky so far with my Rift S mic <knocking on wood>.

It is a strange problem. I found hits on google that indicate many people are suffering the same issue. As posted above, it may be related to the operating system at a specific patch level. I would even guess that it is possibly unique to a particular hardware/driver combination.

My work around for now is to wear the headset I use for TrackIR, then put on the Rift S headset, which more or less fits over it. This kills two birds with one stone: the intermittent mic and the issues with the open speaker audio of the Rift S headset. But it is much more comfortable to just wear and use the Rift S.

I am not sure what the nature of your question is, but I am using real world cockpit controls including a HOTAS and rudder pedals. In VR, if you use the "show pilot body" button for aircraft that have pilot bodies, the virtual pilot keeps his hands on the stick and throttle no matter what your real hands are doing.

I don't have the special VR capto gloves, but as I understand it, there is an option to have the VR pilot's arms move to match the position of your capto glove hands. If that technology matures and works well, I want something like capto gloves.

I doubt anyone would choose to use VR controllers over the tactile feel of an actual hotas.
Buttons do what buttons always have done.
I don't even use controllers for clicking in cockpit , I find a mouse is a far quicker interface than that, and a track ball Is even better.
Especially for scrolling dials.

Hey Wags, just to make sure we're seeing what you're seeing with those Rift-S units, send one of them to me and I'll concur with your findings sir. PM me for the address and thanks! Also, maybe when it's not so hot, let us know when we may join you at your desert house and do some volunteer voiceover work for upcoming modules, ATC, JTAC, Carrier, Etc...let us lend some variety to the game at no cost to you except a few beers and pizzas!
