This plugin gives you the option to make the chase camera follow your surface velocity vector, instead of being rigidly attached to your plane.
This gives you a better feeling on how your plane is moving, its angle of attack, sideslip, etc.
It is on by default in free and chase mode.
Press Tab to toggle.
(You can change the key in settings.cfg).
Toggling it off and on will bring it back to the default view angle.
The default view angle can be changed in the config file as well.
Bonus feature: The FOV can be changed in the config file.
1. Toggle while in Chase mode: Camera rolls with plane.
2. Toggle while in Free mode: Camera stays level.
