Archived from groups: alt>games>microsoft>flight-sim (more info?)

Yesterday, I decided to try the default Airbus 321 in FSX, but was
unable to tune the Nav radio. I could change the decimal figure, but
not the whole number, i.e., I wanted to tune to 109.7 and could not
tune the 109 part of the frequency. I moved the mouse all over the
tuning button, clicking on the + and - positions, but they only
altered the .7 part of the frequency.

Have others had the same experience and found a solution?

The radio tuning controls actually do work if you are directly
in front of the controls, as in the 2D cockpit. When you are in the VC,
the mouse click areas are too small in that ( and other ) panels.
In the VC, depending on your view point, the areas get distorted
into non-existemce it seems.

I went through and edited the XML code to make all the areas larger.
While I was at it I repplaced the "inner ring, outer ring" scheme,
which doesn'r really work well especially in the VC, with vetical
and horizontal areas. The combination of these chages makes it much
easier to tune the radios in the default A321.

I use TrackIR4 and another thing that I have done is to create
camera views that are more "squared off" with the controls
so that the view point distortion is minimized. I have added
"HotKeySelect=" statements to the camera views and mapped the
keys to my sticks #2 hat. This way, at the flick of my thumb,
I can move about the cockpit. I've added these camera views to
all the aircraft I fly regularly and adjust the x,y,z values
for each to out me in the optimum spot in the VC for accessing
various functions.

Thanks Paul. I don't have TrackIR, but I will try your 2D cockpit
idea.
