Copilot view needs straightening ahead

Recommended Posts

With TrackIR now I would like to have the copilot position/view (sitting right) looking straight ahead like the pilot (sitting left) and not transverse direction down to the GPS. That would be exactly like in the FSX standard B58 Beach Baron.


If someone knows the parameter for the aircraft.cfg and where exactly to be amended, I'll be grateful.

Found out the solution myself.


Go to: (standard FSX Installation)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\Carenado BARON 58\Aircraft.cfg


Open Aircraft.cfg and change the last two lines in red with these in green: 

InitialXyz=0.52, 0, 0

InitialPbh=3, 0, 0



Title = "Right Seat"

Guid = {195EAB58-9E4A-1E2A-A34C-A8D9D948F078}

Origin = Virtual Cockpit

MomentumEffect = Yes

SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel

SnapPbhReturn = False

PanPbhAdjust = Swivel

PanPbhReturn = False

Track = None

ShowAxis = YES

AllowZoom = TRUE

InitialZoom = 0.15

SmoothZoomTime = 2.0

ZoomPanScalar = 0.5

ShowWeather = Yes

XyzAdjust = TRUE


Category = Cockpit



InitialXyz=0.55, 0, 0

InitialPbh=20, 0, 340


Then you'll have your Copilot FOV looking exactly ahead like the Pilot.
