Steve,Here are the settings I use from my Ariane/Dreamfleet merge package. These settings go in your panel.cfg in the views section. Be aware that they do not work on aircraft with VC cockpits. I have applied this principle to any G-max plane with wing views. I have it on the FFX 737-200, the Posky 747-400 and the Meljet 777.Obviously the settings change with each aircraft, they're based on the length of the aircraft and the placement of the eyepoint in the aircraft.cfg file. You have to experiment with each.The views are accessed by ctrl+shift+1, ctrl+shift+7, ctrl+shift+9 and ctrl+shift+3. I have also assigned them to the 4 buttons at the base of my joystick for quck access.This is the Ariane 737-400 setting with the eyepoint at:eyepoint=40.1286, -1.67323, 4.0988784 //(feet) longitudinal, lateral, vertical distance from reference datumVIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_WINDOWS=39 // RIGHT WING VIEWVIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_DIR=0.0, 0.0, 90//VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_EYE=0.0, -1.38,-12.57 //Adjust last value to move fore and aft, 2nd value is height and also above is the view dir.VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_EYE=0.0, -0.70,-17.87 VIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_WINDOWS=40 // LEFT WING VIEWVIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_DIR=0.0, 0.0, 270//VIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_EYE=0.0, -1.33, -12.73 // Adjust last value to move fore and aftVIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_EYE=0.0, -0.70, -18.03 VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_WINDOWS=41 // SEAT VIEWVIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_DIR=7.0, 0.0, 240//VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_EYE=0.0, -1.28, -14.27 // Adjust last value to move fore and aft VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_EYE=0.0, -0.70, -6.67 VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_WINDOWS=42 // SEAT VIEWVIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_DIR=7.0, 0.0, 120//VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_EYE=0.0, -1.28, -14.27 // Adjust last value to move fore and aft VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_EYE=0.0, -0.70, -6.67 As a contrast, here's my views for the Meljet 777VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_WINDOWS=39 // RIGHT WING VIEWVIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_DIR=0.0, 0.0, 90//VIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_EYE=0.0, -1.38,-12.57 // Adjust last value to move fore and aftVIEW_REAR_RIGHT_UP_EYE=0.0, -0.25,-31.47 VIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_WINDOWS=40 // LEFT WING VIEWVIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_DIR=0.0, 0.0, 270//VIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_EYE=0.0, -1.33, -12.73 // Adjust last value to move fore and aftVIEW_REAR_LEFT_UP_EYE=0.0, -0.25, -31.60 VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_WINDOWS=41 // SEAT VIEWVIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_DIR=9.0, 0.0, 230//VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_EYE=-1.80, -0.10, -7.49 // Adjust last value to move fore and aft VIEW_FORWARD_LEFT_UP_EYE=-1.80, -0.10, -9.49 VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_WINDOWS=42 // SEAT VIEWVIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_DIR=9.0, 0.0, 127//VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_EYE=3.0, -0.10, -7.49 // Adjust last value to move fore and aft VIEW_FORWARD_RIGHT_UP_EYE=3.0, -0.10, -9.49 I use the PSS 777 panel with my Meljet 777.Hope this helps,Lee

Hi Lee,Most kind of you to post, thanks :D the VC....thats a blow asI wanted to apply these to the CS 727, which has the most fantasticwing and flap/spoiler movement, BUT you have the option to setupwith normal bitmap cockpit views so I wonder if it can still be done..I will setup my Meljet/PSS 777 panel aircraft with your adjustments anyways ;-)cheers m8,Steve

Steve,Since this was kinda mentioned in the screen shot forum I had a look at the CS727. Unfortunately, it doesn't look possible with this particular aircraft. Still, neat thing to do with a lot of other aircraft eh?Rich.
