setting the point of view (height position) value in panel.cfg

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to edit the height of the point of view value anywhere in panel.cfg or elsewhere?
Some Carenado planes like Stationair, Skywagon and Aztec have a weird  point of view.
Normally (picture-1) you can't see nothing ahead of view neither on the runway nor in the air. If you "raise your seat" with keyboard commands (picture-2), you get this awfully high point of view where your head is all the way at the ceiling and the instrument panel is way below.
I'd like to set the default value to a height position, if possible please explain which value is needed to be edited and where it is in the panel.cfg or model.cfg file.

Hi,

 

The setting you want to change is actually located in the Aircraft.cfg file, not the panel config.  Look for the following:

 

[Views]
eyepoint = 4.3, -1.35, 2.65  
 
The numbers represent the Longitudinal, Lateral,  and Vertical viewpoint in feet.  Play with that - but don't forget to back up your original.

Thanks Mark, although it really does the same thing as keyboard commands. What the heck Carenado did with these models, oh boy.... 

Not so bad though, we can live with it.
