I have just installed MCFS2 and have leapt into the free flight option.
My problem is that I am unable to get aan outside view of my aircraft.
The manual refers to this as the spot view and states that one gets this by pressing the F4 key twice (from the cockpit view).
When I do this nothing happens!!
What am I doing wrong - any suggestions?

You probably installed it with the Flight Sim keyset, it gives you the option of that or CFS. If that's the case, it will be mapped to the 's' key. You can change it in the settings somewhere.

When you installed it, you were given an choice between the CFS2 key commands, and the “classic” CFS1 commands.
My guess is, that you choose the latter.
Going from memory here, the views in CFS1 were done with the S key.
To change it:
Go to settings, controller assignments, and select reset default: now you can select the CFS2 keys, wich I believe most of us are using.

If your new to this sim I suggest to do a lot of reading on this forum, there’s a lot of tips and info to be found.

Cheers, Willem.

this method always works for me ...apparently, the nosegunner prefers hitting the S key
