Default can keys for aircraft side and top view be changed?

Currently the looking to the sides and top of aircraft views are very very shabby, however its a pain in the ass that its the same key as switching weapons. Am i missing something? Is there a way i can make it so that my extreme 3d pro joystick can utalize those view settings in my thumb buttons instead of the same key as switching weapons?

(I stalk my prey when dogfighting, now i have to very very quickly press my switch weapons key three times when ensuing a dogfight when i want to switch missiles and its distracting. It disables my view of the person im chasing and every second counts.)

yea, each view is a weapon slot, i tink its 6, 7 and 8, but I can't remember in what order

I have my HAT switch set right so I press left and I look left, right I look right, back I look up and forward I am at weapon slot 1 (forward)

The side views ARE weapons. You will always cycle through them when pressing the weapon cycling button.

dont worry chaps, its really easy to do once you know which weapon number corresponds to which view, then just jump in to teh options, and put in ur preferences, takes around 5 mins max

I don´t have a problem with it, but one trick I saw somewhere. Use F to switch weapons but set an extra button to weapon 1 so that you can switch back to that first weapon without cycling through them all.

"Today's forecast calls for 30mm HE rain with a slight chance of hellfires"

"oh, they're fire and forget all right...they're fired then they forget where the target is"

Can't you just press 1 to get to the first weapon?

well....yea. But its easier in my mind to have the weapon selection above your left hand, and the view selector in another convenient location, on ur Joystick HAT, or on the numpad or somthing

This is the top of the joystick I use.
It's a Cyborg Evo Force.



That thing in the middle is a "mini-joystick"
I've binded the 6, 7 and 8 key to the left, up and right on the mini joystick, and I've put weapon 1 (gun) to when I move the thing down.

Trust me, it's perfect to use in dogfights and recon.

I still haven't found any use for the camera in the choppers though.
