Had to vote 1 thru 3, although with my convergence usually set for 200m, I rarely take a long shot. I miss quite enough from up close.

What exactly do you mean? In most aircraft I fly, I use the default view until enemies are sighted and then hit shift F1 to lock my view so the gunsite stays still. Mainly the zoomed out(page down) when enroute to target engagement area then to normal(end) view when engaged. I sometimes use the zoom in view if there is only one or two enemies still around to get better hits on target. I usually stay in normal view because of the restrictions of the zommed in view, when three or more enemies are in the area.

I die alot too so... lol.

Your answer was perfect just wondering how others fly.

I fly w/ wide view and scan w/zoom.In combat I use a medium view for decent SA and shooting, BUT sometimes use the zoom for more accurate shooting.

I only zoom in to look closer at something.
Dont seem to be able to hit anything inzoomed.

Other than that I use only maximum outzoomed view to have as much perifer reference as possible in case of close in fights and/or to keep an eye on multiple planes easier. (cockpit on)

Oops, sorry, I shoulda said that I always fly in Wide FOV with cockpit on, so I can see my instrument panel, altho some a/c's dials require Gunsight FOV to read'em. Once the DFing starts, I vary the FOV to suit the situation.

I use the Shift F1 toggle constantly.

It works well for looking around canopy obstructions.

I use it almost all the time.

As my primary mount is the Bf-109, with the 190 and 110 being close seconds, it's my ONLY choice if I want to be ready to fight.

I remember Franz Stigler saying that most Bf-109's did not have the offset site, they had it centered, but, whatever.

Er, my answer is 1 & 2 - 3 very occasionally - and one other when in the IL2, a quick look back thro' the gunner's eyes at (hopefully) the smoking ruins of a ground target!
I do my best to use the views like the Mk1 human eyeball - constantly focussing and refocussing - so I have all the views bound to my joystick buttons, including the incremental 10%age views.
It works for me! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I've mapped the views on my wireless mouse so I'm using them all the time. Usually I fly in wide view at takeoffs and cruising then I start scanning. I toggle between Shift F1 (another mouse button...I have 8 programmed Logitech MX700) when looking back to front. When I spot a contact, I'll go to gunsight view to ID. Same goes with Ground targets, then pull back to wide view, and prepare attack angle, etc. then when ready to fire I push my scroll button down and that gives me Regular view. If the target is moving away, I can use my left and right mouse buttons to increase or decrease FOV. Yep, flying with both hands http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Pollster does not see the true Value of gunsight view, so I can't Vote. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I mostly use gunsight view as limited pilot head movement for seeing around canopy struts, or toggle it for some small help in see over/under the near/far edge of the top wing of some Biplanes. I also use it for shooting but 9/10 times I use it to see better through canopy.

ive been learning to not use zoom at all (for combat).. it creates tunnel vision, and helps me, well ..kill myself.

i find it easier to not flip thru views (after you get used to it). now i feel, thru training, that if i cant hit them in regular view, i need to get closer.

mostly I use Zoom view for ID target , or looking where he heading to.

after I like to play hi-speed attack (over 700km/h) with 190D or Ta152 I have to use zoom view for open fire at 250 meter.

but normal case I not use zoom view for make a shooting.

S!

There appears to be some confusion between Gunsight View (aka Zoom View, default key "Del") and Toggle Gunsight (default key "Shift-F1"). It would appear that the original post was attempting to elicit our opinions on the former.

I use it for 1 through 3 but tend to do quite a bit of swapping around when in close combat.
