I use the CTRL-F1 'no cockpit' view pretty often and I would really like to be able to hit 'F1' and go straight back to the regular cockpit view.

But once you're in 'CTRL-F1' mode you have to cycle through all the modes to get out of it.

I wish F1 would just ALWAYS go straight back to regular cockpit mode.

Can this be that difficult a thing to do? It surprises me what with all the enhancements and patches to this series that no one has asked for it before. Maybe it's just us non-purists (ie, not very good sim-pilots) who even use the 'CTRL-F1' mode.

Any chance we'll see this change sometime?

have you tried binding (assigning) your most used view keys to your joystick in the "Controls" section so you can switch without cycling. This works for me.

S!
