FlyInside FS Receives Major VR Update

Announced over on their news section, the team at FlyInside has released a v0.5 update for their FlyInside Flight Simulator which overhauls the end user’s virtual reality experience. To accompany the update, a short trailer has been published to showcase what features the update introduces.

Version 0.5 introduces a comprehensive overhaul of VR controller interaction and makes it easier to more explicitly manipulate nearly every switch, button or dial within the cockpit. This overhaul also brings along the improved ability to use the yoke/stick with VR controllers making aircraft more intuitive and controllable. You can view the complete changelog towards the end of this article.

If you don’t own FlyInside FS, you can grab a hold of it on Steam as an Early Access product for a price of €30.99 (Incl. VAT). You can learn more about FlyInside FS and it’s requirements here.
