Post The head can go out the canopy

When you view to backwards it is possible to get the view out of the canopy using normal FOVs.

Seems to be an issue with some modules and TrackIR nowadays, P 51, Tomcat, Spitfire ...

It is very immersion breaking and should be fixed asap. It is a simulation after all right ?

Yes, which is a variation of video game.

If we are simulating whole flight models, radar systems and such, sticking ones head through the canopy glass is a major bug period.

It is a bug. It is not a major one. It boils down to axis limits, that's it.

Make a bug report, fine, but ''simulation'' is irrelevant. It's a video game, and such glitches will always exist to some extent. Plot twist, real aircraft have known ''bugs'' at times, too, sometimes fatal, and no, they don't always get fixed. ''Wonky camera'' is relatively low priority

I will check with the team when they return from there xmas / new years break.

This maybe intended with headtracking and VR devices to prevent motion sickness with 1:1 movement.
