It is my pleasure to share with you my upgraded Cessna 172 camera system now also including a "fixed ground camera"
for "remotely" flying the Cessna as a RC plane if you like
  ^-^

download from here:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/re6bz2gq6jy9zoj/AABduRsOgoFt4qlw9lrY_DQVa?dl=0


installation:
click on sef-installing "cessna172-ugraded-cameras.otx"  file

Here is a demonstration video:




In detail the new cameras include:

1) simplified set of few camera views for better use
2) improved fly-by camera
3) added a fixed ground camera
4) formation flight camera
5) left and right wing cameras
6) vibration effect for cockpit and wing-cameras


controls:
press "v" key repeatedly to switch through the new cameras
press "c" key to use the outerra default external view

in all new camera modes
press "NUMPAD+/-" keys to zoom in/out
press "K" key to activate the ground camera
press "H" key to increase the camera viewing range
press "J" key to decrease the camera viewing range
(if you like to keep the ground camera or airborne fly-by camera fixed while you fly the plane like a "remote controlled" RC plane increase the range by pressing 3 or 5 times (or more if needed)
the H key.)

notes:
- when pressing C the camera range is reset to default, while in all other camera modes the view range can be changed by pressing H or J and
is still kept "alive" when pressing v.
- for better use the active "camera range" is shown in the left bottom of the screen together with the status of the ground camera showing wether it is active or not.
- note that the ground camera works in the same way as the airborne fly-by camera except that it is projected to the ground.

I'm glad you like it.  :) Its just a little thing but it opens a new mode of flying the cessna and a new enjoyable view of the plane from the ground.
