View from ground

Recommended Posts

Enjoying this new Spitfire and got most things figured out. As an old FSX and P3D merchant I would like to be able select a view of the plane from the ground, in FSX it was called "tower view" and it was great for that "airshow aerobatics" experience, just like flying a RC plane.

There is a bewildering amount of view choices in the controls section, which one would I choose to get close to the tower view i'm after ?

"Airshow aerobatics experience", huh? While being somewhere "outside" in external cam mode, one can also lock the view on the airplane to track it easier (for movie making and such). Don't remember which stock assignment did it though - it was one of numpad keys I believe.

Thanks Art-j, in FSX that was called "locked spot view" I would love to know the key assignment for that, can anyone else help on this ?

If noone shows up with a reminder, I'd suggest trying out numpad Insert & Del, either separately, or with all possible Shift, Alt, Ctrl combinations. It must've been one of these, because I recall I lost the camera lock ability when I reassigned them to operate my TrackIR years ago.

 

Actually, when in DCS controls menu, whenever you hit a key or key combo, the relevant function gets highlighted, so You should be able to find it easily.
