~S~ trying to download version 2.8, but what I got is a file with and unidentifiable type " fbvwps28.rar"
Is this OK or what I'm doing wrong?

This means that the file is saved in rar format.
You need a reader like Winrar http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Utilities/Compression_and_Zip_File_Utilities/WinRAR.html

It's shareware but you can use it for 40 days before registering.

Couldn't get it!
While downloading the WinRAR program got plenty of bots from it, programs such as Freedownloads, Weather Cast, Save Now, Search, etc. got into my computer without my authorization. Had to run my Spybot to get rid of all of them.
If there is no other way to get that version, I better forget it

OK! I have it now, thanks for the link

Before I install it, could you please confirm the following assumptions:
1) It won't affect the operation of my CH pedals and Combat stick
2) Will work with one coolie hat only
3) Tis new version will work with IL2+AEP+FB

It's been over a year since this post from "Flak_Rambler" but could anyone address these questions about FB View Plus?

I would only add: Will FB View Plus work with Il2+FB+AEP+PF4.03m??
Thanks,

I don't now if anybody uses it here, try this thread in ubiforums There are a few threads about it there, though none very recent.

Thanks for the lead. It may be a while before I can stick a TrackIR in the monitor but I need to try something. The snap views from the button on my joystick leaves me with blindspots usually only found on city buses.

If you have a Saitek stick, or your stick has profiler software with it, try if you can set the hat switch to "mouse mode " - this works for all Saitek sticks. you then get an even-speed pan view when using your head Saitek Profiler has a slider with wich to set the sensitivity / speed of the panning. might take a little fiddling, but works great :) Don't forget you can use the F9 key to switch between pan / snap views
