Is there a way of panning around the plane from outside using the hat? Also, whilst in the cockpit, my pan viewing is limited. Should I not be able to pan Rt. or Lt. 90 degrees?
FWIW,
Good Hunting!

Kraut to pan around outside hold the alt key down and use the joystick, this is the same way DI does it in their other sims and it seems to work pretty well.

As for the internal views being limited in the degree to which one can pan left and right....well this one is frustrating me too.

My biggest problem with this one is the difference between F1(2d cockpit) and F2(virtual cockpit). I can't see and difference in the two views at all. Is anyone else having this problem?

Otherwise I don't mind this sim at all, like all the others it has it's good and bad points but I think the good outweighs the bad overall.

Thanks for the input! Greatly appreciated. I'm still trying to get the hat for panning. Maybe one should focus on the dash more than the outside views. In WW2 stuff, it certainly is the outside view but with all this electronic stuff, maybe it's not needed. Oh, by the way, on our TM WCSII, I have the throttle settings @
THR 45 5 = - = - = -. This a GAME 1 @ 100.
Hope this helps. It took me over an 1 1/2 Hr. to figure just this part out! I'm liking this sim better than USAF & F18. I liked the graphics on USAF but I'm enjoying the FM better on this one.
FWIW,
Good Hunting!
