Seat height toggle switch, to the left of the landing gear lever.

I don't lean or hunch. Personally, I drop my chin to chest and depress the VR view recenter key. This way, the virtual pilot is sitting all the way back in the seat, rather than towards the front edge of the seat. Easy to confirm alignment in the F/A-18C as you have a pilot body that lines up your real shoulders to the virtual shoulders. A10C doesn't offer that "luxury" but doesn't take long to know where the sweet spot is and quick set.


Cheers,

Don

And for the set and save position using the keyboard, how do you do this in VR? I assume you have to keep your head still while hunting around for the keys.

Affirmative. Set the keyboard in your lap if it’s not easily accessible while doing so. Personally, I have reassigned the num pad keys to the UFC keypad on the Hornet so I can type coordinates in easier (or weapon settings if applicable). For the A10C, I have the num pad keys set to the numeric keys of the CDU, again for coordinate entry or TAD and weapon profile settings. I assigned the VR center key to one of the buttons on my McLaren GT3 wheel.




Cheers,

Don

Left alt + numpad zero to save your current position as default.

You can also go into your snapviews.lua file and precisely position your default VR position down to the micrometer. I found that just pushing it back a few cm, and maybe up a bit, perfectly suited my needs.

That is the best thing to do, as you can also zero out any unintended angles and lateral offset you may have input while 'saving' your viewpoint in-game.
Ideally you want to just adjust height and longitudinal position.

You're not the only one using those keys. I use them too, and the cool thing is you only have to do it once. After that, its just a matter of getting into a comfortable position, and then hitting the VR recenter button.
