Yes, I've tried adjusting the seat, but that seem to obscure the HUD. This is the only aircraft I have this problem with.

Yep, there was always something a little off about the A-10C's tub. I feel child size in the thing in VR. (begging' not to have an IPD discussion)

Maybe its right, Maybe its not - but I too would appreciate if someone that's on the A-10C refurb team take another look at dimensions & default pilot placement.

Are you talking about getting the nut on the top right side of the HUD aligned with the top two screws on the whiskey compass? I think that's what I see in your pic, but just want to be sure.

Yeah, to be clear you should adjust the seat and view until you just barely see the top of the uppermost HUD frame. From this view, the two nuts on this frame forward and aft should line up with each other so they are essentially stacked on top of each other.

Tip regarding seat possition in VR.

Hold down Right Shift and Right ctrl and use the 1-9 numeric keyboard to move your possition..
This work quite good, BUT if you recenter the view during flight you end up
back in the old possition.
( it would be nice if the above adjustment became the new default vr view and the game remember your last known possition or at least do so during an entire flight so you can reset the vr view back to the one you manualy selected ).

The best way to set this reference is to make it so the two nuts on the right side of the HUD effectively bisect each other. The nuts are seen here:

In game I have noticed that no matter how much I adjust the seat or camera to reflect a real life seating position, the HUD is essentially unusable. If anyone is able to get a seating position that is what i'm referencing while also adjusting the FOV so that the HUD is usable?

Just tried your method of lining up the two reference points on the right top of the HUD frame. (using VR) I adjust my vertical height, so that the top of the two nuts appear level. I find the top approx. 1/3 of the HUD is out of view. In order to get full HUD in view I have to lean head forward and down.

Got it. I'll give it a try.

You can save the position once you find it. Then it will return to the one you manually selected when you recenter. You just have to physically be in the same position you were in when you start the sim. Have a look at this old post of mine. The key combo to save the position is at the bottom. You can do this same procedure with all the aircraft modules you own, and they will all start up with you sitting in the position you saved.

Tried it last night, and saw the same thing Lobo did. The top 1/3 of the HUD is no longer visible after doing that. With my view position set where I usually have it, I can see the whole HUD without leaning forward or hunching down.

In the real thing, what does that longer screw on the left side of the HUD do? It almost seems like that might be an adjustment screw to change the angle of the glass panels in the HUD to adjust for pilot/seat height.

The HUD of A-10C is narrower if compared with the one of F/A-18C or F-16, so the pilot view piont had to be closer to the HUD, so as to see all the symbols on it. The F-15C and A-10A has the same problem. Wish the new A-10C's cockpit update could fix this.
