Default Left MFD partially covered up

The left MFD buttons are covered up from 1 oclock to 4 oclock positions by the I believe radio comms and can't use the buttons there. Please advise.

Use track IR or equivalent and problem solve.

You can still push the buttons 'through' the center console if you aim the mouse correctly.

Alternatively you can shift your head to the left & right with RCTRL+RSHFT+KP4 or KP6

But, yes, but you're better off with head tracking of some kind.

I made two custom snap views for the right and left mfds and mapped them on my hotas, will post them here as soon as I get back to my pc.

The best option is trackir though, I need to get a set.

I use the mouse with my throttle hand to look around. Press and hold mouse button two lets me peer around the UFC. Also have the mfd buttons mapped to the keyboard.

For me it worked decently well to re map the head shift and zoom commands on the keyboard to something more intuitive and easier to use than RCTRL+RSHFT+KP4.
