Having a perfect control over your camera is what ChasePlane is all about. An addition to your mouse and keyboard to move the camera, you can assign any joystick axis, sliders or buttons to move the camera where you want it, at the speed and smoothness you desire.
Translate your head movements into camera movements in the sim with TrackIR.
ChasePlane supports TrackIR out of the box without time consuming configuration.
In ChasePlane, you can move the camera wherever you want in the world using Static Cameras.
Select from a predefined list of camera positions or create your own at any time.
In-Sim View Selector.
In ChasePlane, you can access ChasePlane functions and select camera from within the simulator without even going in the ChasePlane user Interface.
SImply click and hold the Middle Mouse button or assign a button to bring up the In-Sim View Selector.
In ChasePlane, motion effects react to the environment around you. The aircraft's motion is calculated multiple times per frame to give you a sense of immersion.
Each effect can be tuned to perfection in our dedicated Motion Effects tune sections
Download Camera Presets.
The community is what makes this product great. Instead of having to create presets for every aircraft you own, simply pick some from the community directly!
The Community section in ChasePlane will present you with the newest and most popular presets available for your aircraft. Simply import them and go!
A Leveled Horizon.
ChasePlane uses new technologies available in Prepar3D to allow for a horizon-aligned view of the aircraft.
This feature we call "Gimbal" will make your flights much more enjoyable by keeping the horizon leveled when flying from the outside of the aircraft.
Your presets are backed up and stored in the cloud. You don't have to worry about them.
In addition to your local copy, your presets and user settings are stored in the cloud to prevent any loss of data if your computer fails or if you forgot to keep a copy of your data.
There are lots of features in ChasePlane.
