20: Adjust Virtual Cockpit Panrate

There are two ways to adjust virtual cockpit panrate:

Option 1:

* Locate Cameras.cfg under C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX directory
* Under CameraDefinition.002 (Virtual Cockpit) section
* Modify the number (degrees per second) of the following two:

  • PitchPanRate=15     // vertical pan rate — I am using 40
  • HeadingPanRate=45     // horizontal pan rate — my setting is 100

* Add the following line right after the two PanRates to improve response time

  • PanAcceleratorTime=0   // zero equals to no delay

Option 2:

If only the panrate of a specific aircraft is needed to be changed
* Open the plane’s aircraft.cfg
* Look for CameraDefinition and do the same as described in Option 1

Note that this adjustment is good for CameraDefinition.003 (Spot) and CameraDefinition.004 (Locked Spot) too.
