Checking Six in VR Without Swivel

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have been using an Obutto "cockpit" for a number of years and am getting a HP Reverb G2 shortly. Was just wondering how you VR guys, without the option of a swiveling chair, check six in a dogfight.

Same way real pilots in non-swivel chairs do (though without the G's!)  In manoeuvring flight tilt your head back and lay it on the headrest sideways.  Flying S&L just lean forwards and turn your neck.


I also have the Obutto seat but will be ditching it soon as I can't get a good side-stick position without bucket seat/arm interface issues, but that is another story.
