Perhaps the following have been posted before. If so, apologies.

A couple of suggestions for the Heads-Up display:

1. Vertical Speed Indicator - just displaying numbers
2. Clock - stop watch: be nice to have a time display which could be reset, for turns and waypoints (eg. abeam carrier - start watch, at 15 sec out begin 2-minute turn)

With the raised-seat position, its hard to read the gauges, and this seems more important when trying to land on a carrier. What's nice about the current HUD is that it's mostly unobtrusive, with no gauge-like clutter. Without going overboard, I think these 2 items would be positive additions.

Thanks
