I don't know if I'm the last to figure this out, but I just worked out how to change it so the pilot can look down more. In the KA50 cockpit, I was getting annoyed that I couldn't look down to the controls. But I just worked out it's set in the eech.ini file.
If you change the last number in this line, it lets you look down more. I've now got it set to 40, which is pretty much straight down. Most cockpits are set to -5, which doesn't allow much movement. Before the next release, I'll probably check them all, and tweak it.
I also found you can use CTRL ~ key to change the pitch, and it saves it to the eech.ini file.
ka50_pilot=0.000,0.000,0.000,40.000 # wideview pilot position
So now I can look down to the left and right, and see more of the cockpit.
