For the C172 it appears that, when in VR, the small lights in the COM buttons (which indicate if COM1 or COM2 is activated, etc. etc.), only show when the user moves his head very close to these buttons. From normal seating position, it appears that the visibility range of these lights are too short. It also appears that it has nothing to do with aspect, because when the user is viewing the buttons directly in front, then the lights only start to appear when the users head is relatively close to the buttons.
I have the same problem. It’s not only C172 classic but other planes too (C172 G1000, button lights in Citation Longitude). It became more of a problem recently in Kodiak 100 where from normal seating position I cannot see lights on autopilot panel buttons, audio panel and so on. Is there any way to fix this?
Also the AoA indexer lights in the Kodiak, they are invisible in VR!
