I was able to train myself to be able to play Bird on expert with the Xbox360 controller when my guitar broke

Huh? I can easily see every OSB from my standard view in the Harrier pit, what am I missing?

I experience motion sickness with track IR and don't like it at all.

@Sedlo: How do you setup snap views?

@=Buckeye=: Good for you, I'm not so lucky.

Tnx davidp57. That makes aircraft a little bit easier to use.

I have to pay attention whether cockpit geometry block something important when I buy an aircraft. It's definitely a no-buy item for me.

then don't buy the F18... the third (central) MFD is raised (towards the pilot)

I thoroughly examined f-18 cockpit:

Raised third MFD is not a problem at all. It doesn't block anything.

UFC doesn't block left and right MFDs like in Harrier.

ED have cleverly made flight stick removable so you can see third display.

Unfortunately, right MFD partially blocks line of sight to RWR and that's serious problem. I don't see workaround for that problem other then to use one MFD as RWR repeater.

I'm not gonna buy F-18 but that's offtopic, so I'll stop here.
