X Plane Oculus Rift

A short flight in X-Plane 11 while wearing the VR headset, Oculus Rift. It is an amazing experience. I am a student real world pilot, as well as a Flight sim enthusiast (please don’t judge the flying skills. This was just a quick video to show it working). I have been flying on flight sim for many years, but this is by far the most immersive and best flight experience I have had, besides the real thing. It definitely helps to bridge the gap between real flight and sim flight. I wanted to post this video to show how the GTX 1060 handles X-Plane 11 with VR. It is smooth. In fact it is much better in the headset, however I haven’t found a way to record with the headset fps. The headset runs at 90 fps, thanks to fly inside. Fly inside is the program I use to run VR in x-plane. The sim can run slower, however it boosts the headset fps to make it an enjoyable experience.

I am running a i5 7600k, a 1060 GTX (6GB version) and 16 GB ram. I have overclocked the CPU and GPU slightly. This has only gained very minor improvements. The game runs fine in VR without the overclock. Here is a post I completed where I go over the details of my system.

  • Hello everyone, I am new to X-Plane 11 and VR. I recently purchased a Pro Flight Trainer PUMA (With toe brakes) and an Oculus Rift S. My current set up is a Dell OptiPlex 9010 with Windows 10 Pro (64Bit), Intel i7-3770 @3.40GHz, 16GB DDR3 Ram, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with X-Plane 11.41(From s.
  • X-Plane supports the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality (WMR). Note: Steam VR is a free download that enables X-Plane 11 to use VR. Steam VR is compatible with the X-Plane 11 DVD set, digital download edition, and X-Plane on Steam. No Intel GPUs are supported.
  • If you run X-Plane normally (from Oculus Dash, from explorer, etc) it will be the regular X-Plane. No uninstalling is needed, just don't run the injector if you don't want it active. You can close OculusInjector once X-Plane is running, it is only needed to start. Here's what mine looks like.
