Hi all - quick quiz.....I saw ages ago a post somewhere that stated that having a zoom setting of 75% from the main cockpit view is more realistic thanb the default setting.....

Does anyone else do this? And if so, is the situation similar in FSX?

I don't know about more realistic... all the zoom does in cockpit view is lower or raise the seat. I've noticed that with some add-on a/c I have to adjust the zoom / seat but that's an exception. In most a/c I am at the appropriate height by default in cockpit view.
I haven't figured out yet what causes the discrepancy.
