    I just wanted to put my findings for configuration for the yawVR on DCS World
    Since i plan to use yawVR tethered to a VR headset, i dont want to have the yawVR rotate 360 degrees so yaw limits will be ON. with that said, the available export.lua file available by the company only allowed the yaw responded to yaw position (as per the cockpit compass) but i find it more realistic for yawVR to respond to yaw speed (as per the cockpit turn & slip indicator), especially since i am not using yawVR in full 360...

    hope this helps anyone out..
    i attached files and settings to use with yawVR game engine...
    ***RENAME export.lua.txt to export.lua***
    and drop it in the C:\Users\USERNAME\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Scripts folder

    How good is Yaw? I'm torn between building my own cheap 2DOF and saving up for a yaw? I currently just hammer war thunder in VR

    Both are viable options, depending on what your personal priorities are, cost, capability, time availability, skill, upgradebility.

    u have to see what all your considerations are.
    theres good and bad in a yawVR, and theres also good in bad in building 2Dof.

    if u are technically inclined, i say DIY wins.

    so @hannibal you would take a DIY 2DOF over the yawvr 3DOF? what would be the pros in that? other than maybe being able to upgrade to more DOF later I guess lol

    if you have the dexterity to build things or learn some technical skill, hands down, DIY is better... semi high learning curve, but you have great ppl here to help.

    yayvr is nice for compact..but it is limited.. dont expect to put triple screens with fanatech wheels and high end controls. there are yawvr users that like it for the 360 aspect.. but for VR you still have a cable to deal with. personally i dont care for 360, it gets me dizzy to have more than 15 degrees of yaw.

    6dof requires alot of work, time. and some money (cost less than buying one of course)
    but overall, building a DIY 6 dof was worth the time.

    @hannibal The yaw vr can also limit the yaw axis to what ever you want plus I would really only use it in VR. I do plan on doing a DIY 6dof and I already have the yaw coming. the thing I really liked about the yaw was the compact design. you are 100 percent correct about attaching screens and wheels, although the wheels are not really the issue but pedal weight is an issue and you will have to compromise on that as right now they are saying to keep pedal weight to no more than 3kg lol. other than that all other weight, wheels, hotas and shifters or what ever is fine as the weight is pretty much inside the chair and only adds weight to the total weight capacity that is 310lbs max and recommended at 265lbs.
