Problems with MSFS camera system

Recommended Posts

Hi together,

I've been using MSFS here and there for a while, while my main simulator remains P3d v4.

One thing that prevents me from using MSFS more, is the camera system and the absence of ChasePlane. Why? Because I can neither save, nor load custom camera views in the aircraft. Normally that should work using Ctrl + Alt + <number> to save a custom view, and using Alt + <number> should load a custom view. However, that has never ever worked on my system, even if the keyboard assignments reflect exactly that. What is working, is Ctrl + <number> to load a view inside the cockpit, and saving views doesn't work at all. Shouldn't that be the case in the "instrument view" only? I've got the impression, that I'm in a wrong "mode", which sets the Ctrl + <number> option free, and doesn't support the Ctrl + Alt + <number> option. If I switch to cockpit view in the camera menu, the same happens.

Could anyone imagine, what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,


Regards, Dominik

Hi Dominik,

Don't know why it's not working for you it always has for me.  The Ctrl+number is set up by whomever created the particular airframe and I don't think it's easily changed.  The Ctrl+Alt+number to create a custom view works as it should here.   I can show you what the camera dropdown looks like for me (I never use this dropdown) but perhaps you will see something different:




System:  7800x3D, Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, Noctua NH-U12A, MSI Pro 650-P WiFi, G.SKILL Ripjaws S5 Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR5 6000, WD NVMe 2Tb x 1, Sabrent NVMe 2Tb x 1, RTX 4090 FE, Corsair RM1000W PSU, Win11 Home, LG Ultra Curved Gsync Ultimate 3440x1440, Phanteks Enthoo Pro Case, TCA Boeing Edition Yoke & TQ, Cessna Trim Wheel, RTSS Framerate Limiter w/ Edge Sync for near zero Frame Time Variance achieving ultra-fluid animation at lower frame rates.

Aircraft used in A Pilot's Life V2:  PMDG 738, Aerosoft CRJ700, FBW A320nx, WT 787X
