Default Head position height in VR

At what height should my eyes be when looking at hud? I try to align it with exterior view pilots eyes. And what looks about right is when my eyes are aligned with top part of hud glass. So when taxing on ground I cant see horizon line or flight vector. And the top part of his glass is at -2,5 degrees on the pitch ladder. Is this correct?

There is no correct answer..

The correct answer in real life and in DCS is the height you can see what is pertinent to you as the pilot to get the job done.

The A10 is not an aircraft that sustains massive amounts of Gs so it is quite easy to move your head about if you cannot see the HUD due to glare, position or otherwise.

Use the seat adjust in left corner of front and left console area.. Find what's right for you..

How do you adjust pilot height in the A-10C? Also in VR.

This exactly is the most effective way to align your view in vr. With this method you can set whatever position that suits you on all axes of view in vr.
Got to try this.

Why do people bother hunching/leaning adjusting in game seat height? Am i the only one using lctrl + shift numpadkeys or - +. And lalt + numpad 0 to save position. Is there a benefit using ingame seat height adjustment vs the technique i just mentioned(in vr)?

What Rakamora said... use the keys to set camera where you want it, then save the position and you're done.
