Hi Coda, when I was renting a 172 several years ago, it would be maybe several months before I could justify the money to go out an rent the plane again. During the interval of inactive flying the real thing, I flew Microsoft Flight Sim. At my biennial flight review, the CFI commented that he couldn't believe how well I flew with such a time span between aircraft rentals. I let him know that it was the yoke and pedals at my desk that kept some form of reflex and muscle memory in shape. Sorry I got long, but I just love this stuff. Gary
Dradecki, like others that have responded about VR, I have to also admit that the computer specs matter more than the headset you select. I use the Oculus Rift with the controllers along with a CH flight yoke and CH pro pedals. My experience with vr has changed my simming in such a fantastic way that words alone can't describe. I haven't had any issues with the Rift but I ended up purchasing prescription lenses from Widmo because glasses were not an option for me in the Rift. I don't ever see me going back to a flat screen and I know vr is just going to keep getting better and better. I run an I7-7700k @ 4.2mhz with 16 GB ram and a GTX 1060 and my fps varies depending on the plane I fly as well as the airports I fly from but the immersion is soooo worth the detail I might lose by turning down some options. Sorry this got so long, but my passion for vr is obviously high. I've been a simulation guy since the sublogic days and am a private pilot in real life so vr is what I've been waiting for most of my life. Hope this helps, even if just a little.
