VR gameplay from Starway Fleet, a space combat game with 6-dof controls and HOTAS support where you pilot a fighter.
Starway Fleet is a $9.99 VR space game that supports the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. It also supports regular PC gameplay on the monitor. Starway Fleet can be controlled with mouse and keyboard, gamepad, or HOTAS. It does not currently support the VR motion controls for Vive or Rift. Starway Fleet uses a 6 degrees of freedom flight model where you can control 6 axis of thrust including vertical and lateral thrusters. You cannot upgrade or change your ship, so the flight model stays the same throughout the game.
In this video I am using a Saitek x52 Pro HOTAS. Starway Fleet supports HOTAS and other flight stick setups with fully customizable keybinds and in-game deadzone and sensitivity controls.
My x52 Pro HOTAS is mounted to an office chair using pole mounting brackets. To see how I created this flight sim chair using cheap parts from Amazon, check out this video I made:
