I have several aircraft that utilize both 2D cockpits and VC's. 2D cockpits are relatively easy to configure, however, the Virtual cockpits present a bit more of a challenge.
My challenge has always been in configuring the virtual cockpit so that I can set the zoom value accurately in order to obtain the proper outside perspective for the approach and landing.
Usually the default setting is about 75% Zoom, which is very close up to the instrument panel. This makes it impossible to see both the panel and runway outside. So when I adjust the zoom to a point ( about 40% ) where I can see both part of the instrument panel and the runway ahead properly, the distances no longer have the proper perspective for an accurate approach and landing. I make adjustments both in Zoom % and eye point view but always seem to end up with the same negative results.
I am curious to find out how others are setting up their VC panels in order to maintain a reasonable outside perspective. Any advise on this subject would be appreciated.
