So when flying a plane, do you use the cockpit view or the view from the outside of your plane?

For me, I used to use the outside view but yesterday I changed it to cockpit view and now Im a lot better with the plane. It's a bit harder to fly near the rock without crashing and trying to go through those rock formation in the middle of the coral sea sometimes goes wrong, but for me it's much easier to hit enemy planes this way. Plus, cockpit view just looks awesome

I do use the cockpit view and although I am not very good with the planes I do find I do better with it.

At first I changed the view and found I was useless at flying the planes but once using the Cockpit view I'm doing much better :)

Certainly not as good as some of the people out there but I can keep my plane up :)

I switch between the two, when im flying normally i use the outside view but when im gonna start shooting something, i switch to the cockpit view!

I use the "plane view" when I'm searching for enemies. When I've found an enemy plane to follow and take down, I change to cockpit view.

Can't really answer properly!
Like most people I think, for general Travel/Bomb Runs, its chase cam...
For dogfights, its the cockpit view so I can see where those rounds are hitting!

I use third-person when just flying around, but when I'm in a dog fight I'll use cockpit view, makes it much easier.

I vote yes, but at the same time I do use the chase cam as well as rear view to get full advantage of a 360 look at the sky.

I also mix thing up a bit when in cockpit view if you hold Left Bumper and move the right stick you can look around the cockpit and out the side windows. Not all that great, but fun wise it's awesome :-p

I use the cockpit view pretty much all the time. I will rarely use the chase cam.

I generally use the Cockpit view in a dogfight. otherwise i use the 3rd person view.

I use the cockpitt view for the planes but external view on tanks etc.

No, Because most of the aircraft simulators I play it is easier to fly 3rd person than cockpit view. It allows me to see my altitude clearly rather than Narrow camera view.

Also, I can see my surroundings easier. than if i was in cockpit view I can't see around my plane

I stay in cockpit view, but when I go to drop my bombs I go into 3rd person.

I find it alot easier the cockpit view, whenever I attempt to fly in the other view I always end up crashing since I can't steer it like that.

Cockpit view almost all the time. Occasionally I will switch to plane view to look for the location of a plane i'm circling endlessly to figure out what I can do to work in behind him, but that's all.

almost completely cockpit view. I seem to crash otherwise. I seem to have a good grip of the wingspan of the things, and haven't yet crashed in coral sea by going through a gap. Only when pulling up from dives.

Of course it's x10 easier to kill enemys using this view.

I use cockpit view to attack everything, only time i use the third person view is when i'm just flying.

Cockpit for me, the chase view makes flying too skitish!
