For anyone that does not know how to click the buttons you have to go to your setting and go to custom controls i think something like that and go to FA-18 Super Hornet then change the interact button to alt then what ever you want hope this helps

Very good plane. My most favourite modded plane of the game similair to a FC3 plane or more from DCS.

The new versions of the Hornet already have Lowlands warrior mod integrated inside, so you don't need it.
Gives you up to 20km PiP

@Benchmark Thank you, I knew about the updated version but made the mistake of typing here, anyways I found mods that extends view range up to 14 km for both normal and PiP, if anyone is interested they are called Lowlands Warrior - Enhanced PiP Viewdistance and CH view distance.

Check 1 comment below yours. There's a new version.

And PiP VD is managed at the same place your general VD can be changed, so you need to do it from the video settings.
