I think the fact that it can disappear into the distance with VR helps me as the same is true in real life. I find I now keep a better mental orientation of the helicopter, if that makes sense.
I agree with this.
On my system at 1440P, regardless of visual clarity, I can only fly a little further in 2D than 3D before I lose orientation.
However, what surprises me is that in VR I seem to be able to recover more often or fly through the loss of orientation. It's like the heli is more often where I thought it should be in VR than 2D.

I don't know if that means I am keeping a better mental orientation or my brain is just working better in VR.
Note: I still fly like crap in real life though.
