There may indeed be a misunderstanding, John, but it's probably my inadequate description of the problem!

Using the RealAir C172 in FS2004, 2D mode, I tried using the hat switch to snatch a glance to left and right - as is my practice with FS2002. Instead of getting a quick view through the side windows, no instrument panel, which reverts to normal forward view with instruments when I released the hat switch, the whole 'windshield' 2D view complete with instruments 'scrolled' to the side - so that I ended up seeing lateral scenery as if through the windshield. This view sticks when I release the hat switch, and I either have to scroll back to the proper position for forward view or try to remember what the keyboard command is to achieve this. Now whether I should start tinkering with the FS9 panel.cfg for the RealAir C172 is debatable ...

If I use the numpad keys to look left/right etc then I get a full screen
showing the view in that direction (no panel is visible). If I use my hat
switch to pan the front view then the panel never moves - only the outside

Is that true? I just checked the default Cessna panel.cfg and it just has

[Default View]

VIEW_FORWARD_DIR= 3.0, 0.0, 0.0
Which refer to the 2D panel

Perhaps if you /delete/ any other reference to side views it works as
