How about a cockpit camera outside the cockpit that you can control?
Advantages: you have a camera mounted on the aircraft, which you can control like in the cockpit, during the flight it is wonderful, and the best thing is you can still control your aircraft.
I think Track-IR users will appreciate it.
Go to the folder: C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\SimObjects\Airplanes
Here you will find planes for which a camera position has already been saved. If the folder “Airplanes” is empty, there is no saving, no problem.
As soon as you save a position in the cockpit, a folder is created here.
If the folder is not empty we make a backup, zip all folders.
I’m assuming an empty folder and I’m using TBM 930 in my example.
- Start MSFS and go to the cockpit.
- Move the camera anywhere, hold Ctrl + Alt and press 0-9, Camera position is saved, remember the key (we need it).
- Open the folder Airplanes, then Asobo_TBM930 there we find CAMERAS.CFG
InitialXyz= 0.077562, 0.218672, -1.081527
InitialPbh= -7.893982, -0.005147, -0.106804
second last line: InitialXyz = 0.077562, 0.218672, -1.081527
replace first zero with -5
second last line: InitialXyz = -5.077562, 0.218672, -1.081527
Note: As soon as you change the CAMERAS.CFG, the simulator must be restarted.
Note: several camera positions are also saved there.
but you know what to do.
- I’ll see you in the cockpit, did you notice the button 0-9?
Ready for surprise? Press Alt + your key
- Bring the camera into position (Left, Right, Up, Down) and save Ctrl + Alt your key (can be the same key).
Have fun, see you in the air.
I apologize for youtube’s awful codec.
