Changing the Default Views in cameras.cfg

Recommended Posts

Can anyone advise me about changing one or two of the default views in FSX SE.  In particular I would like to change the ‘locked spot’ view (which I never use or need)  to a view of a smallish part of the panel (some switches).  I want to use the Hotkey (3) to assign a yoke button in FSUIPC so I can refer to the view quickly during flight.  I have already used the hotkeys from 5 to 9 for other useful views.

If I simply edit the cfg file will there be unexpected effects?  If I do edit it will it be best to use a cockpit view or virtual cockpit (I’m never sure what the difference is!)?  As the view would be meaningless except for the particular a/c (Carenado Caravan EX)  where I want to use it I intend to use the parameter ‘cycle hidden’ in the definition.

Any help will be much appreciated.  I would normally leave well alone but I found an article which suggested that all ten hotkeys can be used – ‘Camera configuration in FSX’ by Gabor Hrasko (2015).
