It has Battery Master, Avionics Master and Alternator switches. Therein might lie a clue. It's one of those where the switches work the wrong way round.

It won't restore in flight control but might make it possible to obtain a deeper field of view, when in level flight. When flying VFR, without eyepoint control, the choice of aircraft seems likely to be significant. First flight over the Horizon scenery, was in a Baron; because it was there... To get the sharpest picture I slowed it to 110 kias. In retrospect that isn't a good idea, since lower cruise speed should result in a higher AOA; thus less scenery over the nose. A slower aircraft might, therefore produce a better view. Another problem, not scenery related, affects one of my FS9 aircraft, that I'm trying to use in FSX. The aircraft is the Lionceau APM20, that I've modified so that it's ideal for farm strips but still with a cruise speed of 130 kias. Initially the stopper to using it in FSX was the FS9 panel. Having made a new, FSX compatible, panel I thought I was clear. Not so. Whatever I do I can't start the engine; not even with CTRL E . The only way is to load and start an FSX a/c, then load the APM20 with engine running. Anything blindingly obvious that I'm missing?

There's therefore nothing to obstruct the view. In FSX, in 2D panel mode, there's hardly any view of the ground ahead. In this mode the Eye Point can't, so far as I'm aware, be adjusted. To get a decent impression of this scenery I have to use either top down or look behind me. This 2D panel / Eyepoint thing is a giant step backwards!
