I think just going by the F10 map isn't good advice in this case.
to each their own. i fly the mi-8 from the left seat, the instrumentation is better. F10 isnt so much cheating as it is the equivalent of having a navigator communicate course corrections to you. like many other features, its a "dont like it?dont use it" sort of thing

I mentioned in my review on steam of this campaign that one of its strengths is that it doesnt require mastery of all systems from the get-go, if you want to get used to vfr& dead reckoning with the compass, you can. if you want to spend a few missions fiddling around with the ark-9, you can. same with ark-ud. same with diss-15. you can mess with doppler during your slingload hookups, you can do slingload from the rear cabin. the campaign is a great lab where you can practice any of the competencies at the rate you want to and be able to focus on them & not worrying about getting shot in the process

Totally agree, the doppler nav system combined with drift info, and throwing in some NDBs if required, is awesome for cross-country nav.

I fly in VR and just peer over at the co-pilot panel and zoom in to see my deviation if any. Would be pretty awesome if he gave you a heads-up maybe if you reached 1km adrift from track for example.
Pretty much turns any crosscountry leg into a VOR/DME beacon nav solution (flying the outbound 'radial' for set distance from diss enable posit).
