Currently, the only military aircraft which has been verified to allow moving and resizing of the HUD image is Asobo Studio's F/A-18 Super Hornet.

Please note:

*Configuration guidance provided is for Windows Operating Systems. Mac OS X testing in process.

*It is recommended to set your desktop background to solid black since your HUD monitor becomes

an extension of your desktop area. Not all HUD images fill the HUD's internal monitor screen completely

and desktop background images & colors will be visible around exported HUD images.

1. While in the cockpit, hold the right-Alt button down on your keyboard, move your mouse pointer over the HUD and a '+' sign will appear. Left-click to pop out the HUD's image.
