Is it a bad idea to use 2 monitors, main monitor for straigt view and 2nd monitor for right hand side.

how can merge these 2?

I have 2 27" monitors mounted one over the other.

As mentioned above, 2 monitors set up vertically does let you see the 'dash' and the HUD at the same time, even when zoomed in so that things in the aircraft are roughly life sized, & if you look out the window you still are scanning the same volume of space as if you had the monitors side by side, just in a different format.

It's true that if you set the instruments up exported to a second monitor you can also see them and the HUD - or the outside world, but 2 one over the other is much more immersive...

Cheers.

I have a 24'' central monitor for the main viewport, and a right secondary monitor with the MFCDs, the RWR, the clock, and the CDU.

 

How did you manage to set CDU on second monitor?

I have two monitors once over another. Suits me nicely :D

 

CDU and MFCDs are exportable by default.

 

Essentially you need to modify your something.lua in Config\MonitorSetup

_ = function(p) return p; end;
name = _('2scr Helios, LOZ prof');
Description = 'Two screen config'
Viewports =
{
Center =
   {
       x = 0;
       y = 0;
       width = 1920;
       height = 1080;
       viewDx = 0;
       viewDy = 0;
       aspect = 1.777777778;
   }
}

RIGHT_MFCD =
   {
       x = 1406;
       y = 1200;
       width = 445;
       height = 445;
   }

LEFT_MFCD =
   {
       x = 67;
       y = 1200;
       width = 445;
       height = 445;
   }

CMSC_SCREEN =
   {
       x = 856;
       y = 1221;
       width = 230;
       height = 49;
   }

CMSP_SCREEN =
   {
       x = 1075;
       y = 1270;
       width = 270;
       height = 70;
   }

RWR_SCREEN =
   {
       x = 600;
       y = 1241;
       width = 175;
       height = 175;
   }
   
DIGIT_CLOCK =
   {
       x = 480;
       y = 1910;
       width = 122;
       height = 122;
   }
   
UHF_FREQUENCY_STATUS =
   {
       x = 635;
       y = 1645;
       width = 120;
       height = 30;
   }
   
UHF_PRESET_CHANNEL =
   {
       x = 748;
       y = 1557;
       width = 30;
       height = 30;
   }
   
UHF_REPEATER =
   {
       x = 656;
       y = 1775;
       width = 110;
       height = 30;
   }

-- GUI =
--    {
--        x = 0;
--        y = 0;
--        width = 1920;
--        height = 1080;
--    }
-- UIMainView = GUI
   
UIMainView = Viewports.Center

 

Some other things are exportable as well, but need some minor .lua changes.

when i export mfd's to right monitor, controls indicators have been placed very irrevelant locations like in the middle of the screen.
