Was flying online and got this tip from Hunter82.
In your setup command, scroll down to FOV, you'll see several choices from FOV 35 to FOV 65.

I've mapped the FOV view to the hat button, pull back on it and I've got (FOV 35)the widest field of view, push the button forward (FOV55) not the max zoom but the next one down. PERFECT for coming in hot on whatever and easily zooming in just a little for a better shot. And fielding back for the complete view for safety or cruising around.
I read the "how to kill a bomber" thread and figured on posting this tip. Safer to zoom with the hat button than take your eyes off the screen and poke the keyboard.
Kudos to hunter for letting this one slip out!

yep, i have the zoom button mapped to one of my throttle buttons and it works great, and like you said, it really helps when fighting those bomber snipers...../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

That's funny, I just discovered this recently while learning to program my Cougar.
