VR gloves for sims

Hi helisimmers!

I would like to know more about the choice, if there is, of gloves for VR for heli sim. I’ve search a little like the first ones that came out on google but does anyone have ever tried those in DCS or X-Plane11? I plan to buy but I’m afraid it is a little too earlie for that as it might still be in developement state. :face_with_monocle:

Thanks,
Phil

Hi Phil.

There’s nothing on the market that really gets our attention right now. I have a set of VRFree gloves by SensoryX but they aren’t fully supported by all sims.

I know SensoryX has been showing off the gloves in DCS but I have contacted them about it and am still waiting for a DCS beta version to be able to try it.

Another question just popped out while viewing the VRfree video of x-plane. If we use them and use a joystick like the PFT puma, how it’s gonna work? I mean, if I put my hand on joystick controls, does the gloves would fight the controller inputs? Is there gonna be somekind of a disabling options for the glove over the inputs of the cyclic and stuff? :thinking:

Thanks,
Phil

We don’t know that yet. SensoryX doesn’t support X-Plane yet (they are trying to get Laminar on board but didn’t succeed yet).

I own CaptoGlove but I’m in the same boat, er… chopper. I’ll keep this post updated as I learn more about those gloves and any support we get.
