Control XCSoar inside VR?

Post by JDS » Tue Jun 28, 2022 4:10 pm

I'm having trouble running XCSoar on my PC pinned in Oculus Link. It won't stay pinned and I can't control it because my pointer gets hijacked by Condor when I start a flight.

I stumbled across this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvzgeQaZgBM

I'm wondering if it would be possible to use this app or a similar one to control my android phone running xcsoar within VR while flying Condor.

That's an excellent write-up. It seems the only way currently is to run xcsoar on the same computer. My current PC isn't up to the task which is why I was looking at phone control options.

I'll be upgrading my PC soon and will use the native condor PDA until then.

Thanks for the info.
