Post subject: How to change view angle?

Hi, Does anyone here know how to change the view angle that you look out from in the non virtual cockpit? I seem to be looking downwards below the horizon by about 20 - 25 degrees, a minor bug but very annoying.

I'm looking at the eyepoint line in the aircraft.cfg file, is that the right line to change?

Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks.

Interesting! What aircraft was this with? I looked at the default C172 and it's set to 8,0,0,0.....go figure!

So now we have even more places where views can be changed...this is gonna be kinda messy to keep track of now. I've been adding new views manually to the regular aircraft.cfg file and you kinda expect to find everything there, or in Cameras.cfg.

I don't know if this helps, but I just experimented with this, you can use the CTRL+Shift+Enter/Backspace and move straight up and down (right through the bottom or top of the AC, and also left and right with the view still straight ahead. You can also just move forward and back using the - and + key.
