Next generation flight simulator could be your next ground station

 

Imagine strapping into one of these instead of your standard head-mounted display for FPV!

The system, while linked to the likes of X-Plane and Microsoft Flight Sim, can take raw input from gyro data etc and put the pilot into that position.  With a Mil-SPEC HMD, the system is really quite immersive and a fun ride.  While not a traditional UAV related post, I thought you might be interested.
