Pilot: Point of View


Recommended Posts

I'd like to see an option for a point of view closer to this video be available as an option with a key or button press. Would be very helpful during certain phases or aspects of flying. The gun sight centered POV is typically kind of low unless one is actually hunkered down and shooting.

Eyepoint view controls (and/or “snap views”) and the ability to set a default view as desired by the user have been part of every half-decent flight sim for decades.  Meanwhile, TrackIR has been around for a long time, and is considered standard kit by most, in lieu of VR.

I turkey neck in most of the European BoX fighters (small cockpits) to keep a good view of the landing spot until I approach the threshold. With TiR 6dof you can sit up, stretch a bit, and see quite a bit more over the cowlings for landings. Less so in the more roomy American fighters.

I've been using a rolling hat switch for years, along with view padlock. I've heard about TIR, but never looked at it or used. Frankly, TIR seems like a natural progression and improvement. I'll have to give it a go with CP, someday....

Well I need to read ALL of the other threads on this forum. @Jason_Williams said that TrackIR is already supported in CP. 🫡 So, one more piece of gear to buy for my new machine... 🤔🤪😃
