Tony Albert has always been fascinated with fighter jets, but actually becoming a pilot might have been a possibility. So, he built what could quite possibly be the most realistic virtual reality flight simulator setup yet. It consists of a Thrustmaster USB HOTAS system, CH Pro rudder pedals, a Thrustmaster MFD button panel set, and an HP Reverb G2 VR headset. Once the headset is put on, it almost feels like you’re actually in the cockpit of a plane.
For those wondering, the flight simulator he’s playing is the F/A-18C module for DCS World. However, he also uses it to play Microsoft Flight Simulator, IL-2 Sturmovik, and sometimes used with a USB steering wheel for DiRT Rally 2.0. How much would a similar setup cost? Around $2,000 USD, and that does not include the computer itself. On a related note, Tony actually got started playing flight simulators as a child, starting with Falcon 3.0 on MS-DOS in the mid-1990s.
