passthrough on keystroke for PC


Hi, is there a way to enable passthrough when hitting a keystroke on the keyboard?

I'd like to map that keystroke to my joystick so when flying i can toggle it and see my "real control panel".

If not Can we add this as a future improvement request?

Hey there, @Randallyz450f! We are glad to hear your excitement with playing flying simulator games and looking to change keybindings for PCVR to best support the playstyle you have. While we don't have any official options to change the keybinding for activating passthrough, there is a shortcut to enable and disable passthrough by double tapping your headset. For more information on how to enable this setting you can check the steps and video here.


Beyond this though we are always happy to have suggestions sent through our official forums, under the Ideas section here. This allows the community to not only gather support for ideas but share anything they have found to implement those ideas as well. I hope this gets you back to soaring through the skies with the functions you are looking for!

Tapping your head while playing with both hands on the control is not ideal. this is why i was suggesting a keybinding which then can be mapped to the joystick button.

Are you asking me to submit this request to the "ideas" form, or were you going to move that to that forum?

Hey @Randallyz450f , We understand when you are engaged in VR, it isn't ideal to have to tap your headset to toggle passthrough. 

We hope in the future to make this feature more accessible and convenient for users to activate without disrupting their immersive VR experience.
