Zoom in the cockpit

Recommended Posts

So i have been tinkering around with zoom in the cockpit. And have not really found a good angle to settle on. Ideally i would LOVE to use the wideview option, but using chaseplane cancels that out for its own inbuilt option. So what do you guys use?

I use a Acer X32 monitior at 2560x1440.

Heya Mike, 

Not sure what the issue is? I too use ChasePlane (with an Xbox controller - outstanding combination) with P3D on my ultra-wide 3440x1440 monitor with Wideview on without issue. 

As for "zoom", it generally use 0.60 but it depends on the aircraft. I like to be centered over the seat and high enough that the headrest is slightly below level line of sight. I then use Tilt to optimize instrument view.

Do you mean you use an Xbox controller as a separate controller?

So a yoke/joystick for controlling the aircraft and the Xbox controller to control your views?

If yes, how do you configure that?

Hi Frank, 

I have found Chaseplane to be an absolute joy to configure, and using the Xbox with my left hand to switch views, zoom, pan, etc, while leaving throttles and yoke to my right is great. Mine is a "Wired PC XBox Controller" since I have heard there are issues with wireless controllers and P3D.

Configuration is pretty straightforward, although I do have to warn you that when you first hook up the controller Windows will automatically load a bunch of "game" stuff that I subsequently deleted. As for specific programming you just go into Preferences -> Control Assignments and find the command that you wish to execute. The Chaseplane manual (page 68) has Xbox examples so that's a pretty good place to start.

Finally, I ended up gluing little pieces of rubber on the contact points of the controller and then placing it on another mouse pad. That keeps it from sliding around, and since the Xbox controller layout is so intuitive I rarely ever have to look at it in use.

I also use a game controller to control Chaseplane however I mounted mine to the center of my CH Products yoke.

May not look anywhere near "as real as it gets" but it sure is convenient because I can manipulate the joysticks with my thumbs while holding the yoke.
