There is nothing than air around joystick and throttle. And throttle is on same position across aircrafts about every time, as throttle is lower than those virtual throttles.

It is simply not possible to "collide" with real controlled in VR and hand tracking as there is no such thing where to hit!

Some of us has been doing this already for year or two, and already built the proper "virtual cockpits".

People just don't know what they are missing when there is only throttle and joystick and pedals on floor, extremely simple setup as you don't need any table mounts or special chairs or such.

You can build PC inside a such chair, and it literally takes as much floor space as a normal office chair. Yet comfy, tactical and pretty.

That is the beauty of VR, the virtual reality IS your cockpit. No button boxes, no tables, no keyboards, no mouse, nothing than HOTAS and your hands...

Koolertron. Cheap and easy to set up. I now have more buttons than functions. At least for what I fly.

I use both VA and a trackball as well. I also have 3x TM MFD Cougars arranged in front of me in the F-18 config (and later will work perfect for the F-15E). The ability to reach out and touch the MFD buttons in the correct place is huge for the immersion.

VA has made some things SOOO much more intuitive. However, I still prefer to use the mouse for any switches in the cockpit that I don't have bound to the HOTAS. It seems more realistic to me than speaking a switch command. I tend to reserve VA to things that are not normal switches. Such as calling precontact with the tanker. Ot telling a wingman to attack a target or cover me or asking for Bogey dope.

Once you develop the muscle memory there is no real fumbling and minimal movement of arms. Just one way to skin a cat...
The cockpits are clickable to be clicked though.

Nice setup btw

Another vote for PointCtrl, it works great!

Also have 6 additional aux buttons attached to it and positioned on my Quest, use them to trigger nvg/nvg brightness, jettison etc.
