i have read the link given to me by tailhook

Got a iFDG airbus? Are you of sitting in front of the engines?
Do you want to sit behind the wing Do you want to see the flaps moving and the spoilers deploy on landing

Here's how........Open up you fs9 folder/aircraft/iFDG airbus/panel
(If you are aliasing the default 737 then copy all of it then paste in the iFDG panel)
Now alter the lines in views to (Copy&paste)
[VIEWS]
VIEW_RIGHT_WINDOWS=36
VIEW_RIGHT_ZOOM=0.9
VIEW_RIGHT_EYE=1.0, 0.0, -23.0
VIEW_RIGHT_DIR=10.0, 0.0, 70.0

VIEW_LEFT_WINDOWS=36
VIEW_LEFT_ZOOM=0.9
VIEW_LEFT_EYE=1.0, 0.0, -23.0
VIEW_LEFT_DIR=10.0, 0.0, 290.0

Ok, 1st you need a panel for your airbus any panel will do except the default 737
Search avsim for "greg 737" a nice easy to use panel with crew calls
If you already have a panel or you d/load one,here is what to do ➡

Copy below

VIEW_LEFT_WINDOWS=36
VIEW_LEFT_ZOOM=0.9
VIEW_LEFT_EYE=1.0, 0.0, -23.0

One can only guess which part you don't understand. Ok, let's start guessing.

Your iFDG A321-231 GB Airways\panel
is aliased to b737_400\panel - see your own post above.

Now read tomthetank's post above... it starts like this:

Ok, 1st you need a panel for your airbus any panel will do except the default 737
Search avsim for "greg 737" a nice easy to use panel with crew calls
If you already have a panel or you d/load one,here is what to do

In the first sentence he says: ... except the default 737. Continue reading, and you're even told which panel to use and where to get it.

Here's the link to Greg's Panel ➡ https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2645/fs2004-panel-for-default-boeing-737/

You have to install this panel first and then follow the rest of tomthetank's instructions above.

My advice to you is, if you have never done anything of this kind before, read all of the instructions and take one step at a time.
In this instance it means to install Greg's Panel correctly first of all. If you have problems with that, don't improvise, come back and ask. But you have to be more precise with the way you ask... let us know exactly what your problem is and where you are stuck, otherwise we'll just be going around in circles.

Go get the panel and let us know what's happening Read Idea

Ok, thanks for the help Tailhook, and sorry for my stupid question. I didnt realize i had to get a panel, i thought the 737 panel would do. Thanks again.

No question is stupid Mc_GaNgStA... if you tell us clearly what your problem is, it's much easier for us to help you.
I hope it's working out 😀

Yeah, ill make myself clearer next time. The panel works fine now and the views are pretty good, rather than the same cockpit. It's working out pretty good.
