Considering that you have replied already a few times in this thread, this is a rather strange post.
It takes less than a minute to test.
At least I've learned my lesson as I will not make the error again to post screenshots upon a request from non-LM staff.

I set up FSUIPC to fly the LM F16 for a short test circuit ending with an ILS / visual approach to the check the HUD during touchdown / landing.
I seen no problem with the HUD in flight or during landing / roll-out (screenshots).
So, my test with the default LM F22 and F16 are ok with the HUD display.

Marty,

As 1050E and I have been trying to explain.... try taking the screen shot the moment you touch the ground (all wheels on the ground too rear and nose) when landing - If you wait too long the HUD will refresh itself and be all normal again after all wheels are on the ground once you land...

Also, I know this is stupid, but please double check your version p3dV4 (not using 4.2 as it is perfect) and you are indeed using 4.3.

I will make a video the next time I re-install 4.3.

P.S.

Maybe this is not the case but I am using Windows 7 Ultimate (with a GTX 1080ti)... 1050E are you also using Windows 7???

Marty, you said you have no issues with 4.3, are you using Windows 10 ???

Thanks!

My tests results:
I seen no problem with the F16 HUD in flight or during landing and roll-out.

Can you tell from my screenshots when all wheels are on the ground?

When you land how do you tell when all wheels are on the ground while watching the HUD?

Can you tell from my screenshots which version of P3D I am testing with?

I use Win7-64 Pro

Edit:
Are you going to test with P3Dv4.3 today?

In addition to my last post:
Why not do a HUD landing video of your current P3D install so we can compare it to the video you will do of the same landing in P3Dv4.3?

Hi Marty

I installed the 4.2 client and things are back to normal, so I am going to wait until 4.4 is released.

If for some reason I re-install 4.3 I will post a video.

I guess 4.3 is no problem for people if they are not picky about the HUD flickering out for a split second.

It's easy to overlook and maybe not an issue at all.

Can't tell the time elapsed between your wheels on ground and whats depicted with your HUD

When you land how do you tell when all wheels are on the ground while watching the HUD?

I'ts a still image so I can't tell about your landing

Can you tell from my screenshots which version of P3D I am testing with?

You will need to go help and about to know for sure

I was asking:
When you land (your approach) how do you tell when all wheels are on the ground while watching the HUD?

My HUD did not flicker .
And. I had two views in my screenshots during landing and roll-out.

My screenshots show the wheels ... mains and lastly nose.

Your videos of P3Dv4.2 and P3Dv4.3 should show what is happening.

Ok, sounds good.

Note:
I have also been testing the C130 (in this forum) which is new to P3Dv4.3.
