Default Flying Pattern from the Cockpit - with Head-tracking FPV

I love flying pattern, not only with pattern planes, but warbirds, EDF jets, any plane I get goes through the same pattern trimming process, from CG to mixing out coupling etc.

Once I knew high-definition low latency digital FPV was available, I started installing them in the cockpit of my planes to see if pattern flying would be easier/different using full-scale-like perspective. After three years of flying head-tracking FPV, I can conclusively say, rolling maneuvers are easier to execute more precisely from the cockpit. While looping maneuvers are harder to keep round compared with conventional ground view.

Here’s a practice session flying an EDF sport jet from the cockpit, let me know what you think:
