I'm finding the external view can crash the game.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Aircraft Select R22 helicopter
2) Location Select Downtown Manhattan Heliport
3) Press 5 key to cycle external view
You shouldn't need to take off or do anything else.
In only one or few cycles of the external view key, the game freezes.
If it does not occur, move the chopper a little and try again.
Perhaps it relates to being close to the ground and near buildings? This location crashes 100% for me. If I try in Switzerland or other places, it does not occur.
Crash appears as app freeze. Screen does not change but app is unresponsive. Requires Task Manager to terminate process.
Windows 10 Pro
nVidia Geforce 1070
FS2 Steam version
Have some user made scenery near NewYork, autogen + night lighting.
EDIT: Removed all user scenery, still occurs 100%. Only have IPACS scenery and ORBX Netherlands + Saanen now.
EDIT: tm.log file attached.
