Why from cockpit view, when I look directly out the rear (Press 2) on some
airplanes that I downloaded, I only see the tail stabilizer and elevators?
Because some authors, either by design, or through inability, decide to
leave out the "virtual" cockpit views. Sometimes all the eye candy we want
on the outside leaves no more parts for an inside. If you want aircraft
with eye candy inside and out, any of Dana McGee's recent uploads are
very good, and aircraft by "Captain Slug" (www.simflight.com/cs
some very good virtual cockpits.
Anything by Bill Lyons will have great virtual cockpits, especially the
new Luscome 8a, Piper J-4 Cub Coupe, and his Hughes H300 Helicopter. Bill
was doing moving virtual cockpits long before those boys in Redmond found
out about them. That feature of FS2K2 is NOT new! The Piper J-4 and Luscombe
were designed to be flown from the virtual cockpit, thus a regular panel
was left out.
Thanks for the info
