I don't think you can change the key for "looking"(left shift). I am in fact a keyboard pilot, even after 2 years of FH. It's fine for me as left shift. But I think the key is hardwired in or something, so I doubt you can change it somehow.

You can change what the "freelook" key is in BF42, but that doesn't really help because when you engage the freelook key it disables your ability to fly the airplane. So any looking left/right has to be fast because the controls are disconnected while you're looking.

I have the same joystick I just got it and I was asking around and everyone said no. They said just keep pressing c or f10 f9 f11 and stuff

i have the same stick and i made the f2 button this. the bad thing is i still have to use the mouse to look so basically it is pointless. there arn't any keys that enable looking left or right just the one key that u can hit to trigger it. from my experience, you still have to use the mouse to look left or right which takes your hand off the joystick. i guess if your fast about it, then it would work. i use the "nipple" for my camera views. switching between those might be as good as it gets.

I use the middle mouse button for freelook.

You can download a program that will make your joystick hat (or any key on a keyboard or joystick buttons) make a "virtual mouse." Again, while mouselooking in an airplane, you can't control the vehicle.

I knew you could look around but when I pressed shift it wouldn't let me. Do you use the mouse or something?

Want to use the hatswitch in game??? http://bfarrows.com/files/molk/jtk379en.zip/ You can send me beers for this, thank you...

from readme...

This software is a keyboard input emulator for joysticks. It converts joystick input into keyboard input (and mouse input).

Use it when you want to control an application with joysticks that doesn't support joysticks. If you wish, you can control even Word, Excel, etc. with joysticks

I use a program called NewView, there's also one called "JoytoKey" that I think does JoystickHat>Mouse emulation.

In fact I have a Saitek X-48 or X-52 that has a mouse on the throttle quadrant.

Can you rekey the freelook key from shift to another key/button? Yes. Can you emulate a mouse using your joystick hatswitch? Yes. Can you control the airplane while freelooking? No.
