I run 10.41 in W7 x64.

I cannot find a way of doing an external walk around. The key assigments listed in your manual using $ signs etc do not work on UK keyboards.

Ideally I would like to assign the hat button to left, right, up, down external views but if it has to be keys I can live with that.

Please see the section of the manual "Configuring Keyboard Shortcuts" for instructions on how to change the mapped keys. For joystick mapping instructions, see "Assigning Functions to Buttons."

Also if you have Track I/R you can move sideways far enough to see the aircraft from outside - I have noticed some complaints about this "out of fuselage experience" but i like it. For walkround and checks that things really are set - doors, flap, spoilers etc i just use an outside spot and rotate it around the aircraft.
