I had the same concern regarding the pan direction. I couldn't recall in which forum I saw this but I solved it and posted the fix in the Flight forum at Flightsim.com. I simply changed the Spot view HeadingPanRate from 75 to -75 in the Cameras.cfg file.
I knew I posted this erroneous information somewhere else and spent several hours looking for it. I guess I just got so used to the opposite rotation that I thought it was the same as FSX when I made the edit. There was no change whatsoever. In fact the camera definition which I suggested be edited had a "CycleHidden=Yes" entry. My apologies to anyone who may have suffered as a consequence of my error.
To err is human; to forgive is divine.
