As Victory has said previously, just don’t use the HUD. I personally never even reference the e bracket.

The only gauges I reference are the AOA indexer and altimeter then my eyes are glued to the meatball.

I got way way better when i just turned off the HUD entirely.

Tips, other than practice practice practice..

I'm beginning to think Jester thinks my call sign is "Bolter"
Don't stress it at the moment - the current slow-speed flight model is incorrect and is being 'tweaked'. So maybe work on other regimes of flight instead in the meantime.
Personally the jet has be shelved until a) The FM is a little more sorted and b) The '50% improvement in VR performance' actually eventuates...oh and c) my Rift S arrives

Absolutely correct, now is not the time to perfect your recoveries. Habits you learn today might be training scars you need to unlearn next week.

Spend the time learning systems.
