I personally have 2 closed-door models which I have referred to in the SSC & both have been made with different orientations. I'm hoping the values I've put in will cover ALL shuttle models available.
Your model should fly level and face the right direction by choosing 1 of the 2 orientation settings above (you might have to try both).
To see really cool views of the sky, atmosphere, sunsets etc then position yourself behind the model, lock onto earth, speed up time to suit and enjoy the views- it would be nice to see what they look like with the highest resolution textures available.
PS Someone was asking about flying into the trench of the DEATHSTAR -although I don't have the Star Wars models perhaps this SSC could be used as a guide.
