Please advise on hatswitch and panning capability

Recommended Posts

OK guys, aI'll be honest.... I spend a lot of time just enjoying the scenery and use my spot view a lot !

I use the hatswitch on my Saitek yoke or X52 stick, to effect this.

But I still cannot work out if Chaseplane will allow me to do this.

I have literally 1000s ... (well a few dozen) posts, but seem to find conflicting views on whether this is actually achievable.

So, I can only buy this if I can use my hatswitch to pan.

Advice ?

 

Many thanks

I use hatswitch to pan using ChasePlane. There is a place in CP user preferences to set the hat up,down, left right. I have views for PIC, radios, etc set up on the numpad keys.

The Hat Switch is configured like buttons in the Control Assignments section of ChasePlane

Hi,

 

So how do effect a default panning effect, using the hatswitch, with the aircraft remaining in the centre ?

 

Thnx

Is there any way to pan freely around the aircraft using the hat switch, as in default locked spot view - or is it disabled when CP is running ?

Thnx

We recommend not using the default sim views and stick to the ChasePlane ones. You can make a custom Spot View camera with more visual effects and with greater control than what P3D offers by default.

Here's how you do it in CP:

  1. Camera > Advanced > Enabled Gimbal
  2. Camera > Advanced > Track Aircraft


TLDR Yes you can have that in ChasePlane

Hmmm... well if I press "S", it appears to switch to default external panning view - internal works as per CP settings..... and when I hit s=a CP external preset, it goes back to CP control !

Maybe an anomaly, but it works for me !

 

Great stuff.... gets better all the time.... well done (!) - next to Simstarter, this is the best app made for flightsim - just wish I'd come on board a year ago.

 

Thnx again.

Appears that once preset views are assigned to the hatswitch, that ability to use the panning in default mode, is gone !

 

Oh well, at least I have the choice.

 

Cheers
