Hello Tony.I'm not sure what you'r saying.The panel itselfe is flat and cannot be viewed at different angles.But the angle the pilot looks out the window can be altered.That is defined in the Camera file.There is a camera for every cockpit view.They can be altered to your needs.Here is a example from the Skyhawk./////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Available Cameras // /////////////////////////////////////////////////// ---- camera entry ---- ##### ========== BEGIN CCAMERA OBJECT ========== ---- seat location (p,b,h,x,y,z) ---- 5,4 0 0 0 0.0 1.7 4.0 ---- panel ---- ---- begin ---- ---- id ---- frnt ---- default ---- ---- heading ----HER IS HORIZONTAL: 0.0 ---- pitch ----HER IS UP/DOWN ANGLE: 7.4 ---- panels (L,R,U,D) ---- uplt uprt NONE floo ---- end ---- ---- panel ---- ---- begin ---- ---- id ---- uprt ---- heading ---- 45.0 ---- pitch ---- 3.2 ---- panels (L,R,U,D) ---- frnt rght NONE NONE ---- end ---- Jan

Hi, Jan . thanks for the quick reply. From the drawing, I am curios to know whether a pilot's angle( relative to the instrument panel) can be changed from that of text A to that of Text B. In FLY2, the [ ] view keys leave the pilots angle to the instrument the same while changing the outside angle of view. When the pilot's angle to the instrument panel is changed with the keys SHIFT- arrows, the panel unfortunately disappears. The seat height should change this angle, all things being equal, correct?tony

Tony,I don't think it's possible without making a new panel(if I understand you right)Do you want to look at the panel like in pic 1instead of pic 2? Sorry I didn't have better pics.Jan

Jan, I am humbled by your pictures! That's right. I thought that the camera view and the "pitch angles" would provide interesting (and realistic ) views.tony
