Viewing Cockpit Panels Straight On

Recommended Posts

My apologies if this is an odd question, but I hope someone is able to help me. I'm not very knowledgeable of views , camera angles etc in basic FSX operation.

I am struggling to find a decent Twin Otter cockpit panel layout that I can refer to take measurements from and scale as I work towards replicating the cockpit physically.

I have been playing around with taking measurements from within FSX's Aersooft Twin Otter Extended aircraft using a software tool called "Meazure". For the most part, I felt OK with this less than accurate method. What I am finding, is that the default views and basic means of looking around the cockpit typically show panels in a somewhat perspective view, so a rectacular panel may show on the screen as trapezoidal. It is difficult to get acurate measurements when the view is askew.

Is there a means, that I can set a standard zoom level (.89 seems best) and when choosing to look at a panel, view it staright on?

 

I hope I've explained myself OK. If not, and you think you might know what I'm trying to ask but need more clarification, please ask!
