    Posted: January-07-2017 at 5:40pm
I'm prob the only ezdok user who doesn't understand what this horizon hold does. I watched youtube videos but to me there's no difference with or without  horizon hold ? it looks all the same to me.
I tried activating it in the software. I made sure I had a a joystick button in the toggle box and the main  horizon hold box is also  green and active. No joy.

Any one with  fool-proof explanation  for me ?


Thanks

Don't worry, you're not the only one. I think V2 is very good, but don't understand horizon hold either.

What it does to mimic the human head point toward the horizon while the aircraft is turning (so horizon almost a straight line on the camera)

When released the camera will focus on the VC so the head moves with the plane and not the horizon.
Easy to try in the sim just pick your preference aircraft, define a key or button to the horizon function in EZDOK.

Test flying in a straight line do a left or right turn and watch the horizon in the sim.
Again fly straight again and activate the function via the defined key or button and do a left or right turn and see the difference.

Other test you can do in your own home sitting on a chair lean your body to the left or right and move your head the opposite way, same effect in the sim ;-)

If you don't own EZDOK V2 just buy it, Flight 1 has 30 days return policy when you don't like it.


Hope it's helpful

I own ezdok v2. i tried what you suggested but it's all the same to me.I know the camera  kinda banks with the plane but I don't see why it would be better with it on or off.I really do not see the diff. orr or on.

Thanks for explaining anyway.

Hold horizon off: the panel is horizontaly, the "world" is moving:

 




Hold horizon "on" the horizon is nearly horizontaly, but the plane (panel) is moving:

Flight training 101, dont compensate for the turn with your head. This can induce auto-kinetic “tumbling effect” and cause disorientation.  Plus - IFR flying you dont have a horizon to reference anyway so clearly it is not the way to fly. 
Maybe a nice feature for simmers; but if you sim and go flying as well - this is a habit that will get beat down from flight#1
