    I afraid that activating FSX could be a problem, and that is holding me from doing this.

    Hello Joop,
    may I assure you that your Windows version has nothing to do with this
    and you would be wasting your time.
    For me, the VC works perfectly under Windows 10 and both FSX and P3D v4.

    I am at a loss as to how or why you cannot move your eyepoint to somewhere
    sensible after all the advice that you have been given.

    If you wish to install something, do it to FSX which may well be broken.

    You have no need to uninstall it.
    Instead, do this:

    1. rename your FSX root folder.
    2. create a new empty folder with exactly the same name and in exactly the same place.
    3. using your FSX DVDs, run the repair for FSX and then install the service packs.

    Now you will have a new and untarnished version of FSX.
    Delete your fsx.cfg file, copy your newly downloaded C47 into the airplanes folder and try it before
    you do anything else to FSX.
    Regards,
    Nick

    Well Nick, did exactly as you advised, result you can see the screen shot I hope, re-named MS Flightsim as xx did the repair with the DVD, deleted the CFG ( which was difficult to find ) I feel that I'm getting to be a pain in the bud, so I think I'm going to leave this until I get back from Aruba ( mid February ) then make another try.

    Regards

    It's not as bad as it was, perhaps if you stand up in the seat?

    Hi Joop,

    The screenshot you posted of the external C-47 model proves of course that there's deffinately something wrong but that doesn't have to mean that there's something wrong with the internal model ( aka VC ) as well. Like Nick also says, why you cannot seem to get a satisfactory point of view within the VC is quite a mistery to us. Your first screenshot shows the POV too high, a second screenie shows the pov hovering over the seat, so atleast you've got the thing moving ! ;-)

    The screenie above shows that the pov is still too low but also shows 'you're getting there' . You're nearly there so why stop now ? It's not like you have something against fumbling around with those Ctrl/Shift/Enter/Backspace combo's, do you ??.... Spend some time playing around with them, get the grips on what exactly these combinations do. Keep both keys of any combo pressed and see your pov move even outside of the VC, left or right, above it or below. Press the reverse combo and you'll slide back inside again. ( if you get lost just reload the plane again ). And you don't have to do these tests with the C-47 VC per sé. Take the default C-172 f.i., might be easier and works just the same.

    With the view like in the screenshot above all you'd have to do really is keep pressing the Shift/Enter combo and you'll see the view move upwards. Stop pressing the keys once you can see normally out of the window. Than you probabely have to rotate the view a little bit. You do that with your hat switch.

    See Milton's post as a reminder for the key combo's. In additon Ctrl/Shift/Enter moves your view sideways to the right, Ctrl/Shift/Backspace to the left. Furthermore Backspace only activates the default zoom whereafter you can press the + or - keys to zoom in or out.

    Play around with these a LOT, Joop, it'll make your life in a virtual cockpit so much more pleasant ! They represent your *virtual you*, you know, your head, your eyes, your legs, your butt, the whole shebang

    Cheers,
    Jan

    No Jan, I did make anouther go at it, but the same bl…. result don’t make much sence.

    I know that “Shift backspace/Enter, for up/down, and Controle backspace/Enter, back/forward “

    The funny thing is when I select aircraft ( 3.14 ) I would see the panel for split second and it would be gone.

    I think I am gointo leave it untill I get back from Aruba, “leaving next week “ maybe with a fresh mind and some Sun on my pale skin may do some good.

    Thank you Jan for your advice, wishing you and all others Happy Holydays

    Kind regards

    This might be a corrupted 'cameras.cfg', which is located in the FsX root folder?

    Padding in way of instrument panel

    OK, I HAVE ALSO TRIED EVERYTHING RECOMMENDED TO JOAP. I'M TELLING YOU THERE IS PADDING BETWEEN THE SEATS AND THE INSTRUMENT PANEL. I AM ABLE TO BRING THE EYEPOINT THRU THE PADDING AND THERE IS ALL THE INSTRUMENT PANEL WITH MM. ONLY PROBLEM IS YOU ARE SO DARN CLOSE TO THE PANEL. I FLY FSX AND JUST LIKE JOAP THE V12 WORKS FINE. I'LL KEEP BEATING MY HEAD AGAINST THE WALL AND KEEP POASTING ANY POSITIVE RESULTS.

    You will find a default cameras.cfg file in the FSX root folder.
    Copy it to C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX
    and let it overwrite the one that's already there.
    On most forums, I don't know about this one, typing in all upper case
    is seen as shouting.
