    I'm doing full VR/Mixed reality with full cockpits. Enclosing the cockpit is one method I might be able to use to avoid motion compensation problems, by using inside out tracking. Currently OVRMC is not an option with OpenXR, and OpenXR gave hugely smoother gameplay in DCS which is what my sim is being built for. Enough of that though, I don't want to go too far off topic here. I'll probably post a thread soon with my initial testing and experimenting with the reality blending.

    I will save you a job as closing in the cockpit will not work with inside out tracking ,I tried it and all it does is get the HMD confused as the internal gyro gets confused with what the cameras can see and it goes crazy

    In regard to motion compensation, I have in transit a 9 axis sensor to be used with SRS. A new phoenix is rising with steel from the old and a Trak Racer 160 frame. So easy to adjust (with a sliding seat Etc) and modify. Still a floor to go in, some painting of re-purposed steel and cable tidy up to do. Works great!

    The rolling ball mouse is such a good idea.

    Something that I should have done years ago - held in place with Velcro. Looking back surprised that it has been nearly 3 years since I have had a steering wheel/pedals fitted to one of my sims.
