Ka-60 HUD shows wrong altitude
Assigned, WishlistPublic


The HUD of the Ka-60, both variants, show the wrong altitude. And I don't mean the HUD of the player in the top left corner, I mean the HUD in the center. There is a 2 shown, when standing on the ground. But the altitude differs by 2 to 3 when flying. That can end badly, when flying low over water or over ground, especially when it's foggy or something.

I'll look at this, but I suspect one is ASL, and the other is AGL.

What does ASL and AGL mean?

Sea level vs ground level.

No, the top left number of the center hud is your speed, the top right number is the altitude and the number in the center right of the hud is showing you how fast you accelerate up or down with your main rotor.

I took a look, and I can confirm what CGMH said. That said the HMD altitude and the HUD altitude should probably match.
