My thinking: Z-hat comes from normalized RVEL, X-hat comes from cross product of RPOS and RVEL, and Y-hat is then the cross product of Z-hat and X-hat.

From this, determine the three Euler angles to rotate the global coordinate frame to this desired orientation. But when I manually orient to the desired direction, and look at AROT from a GetStateEx, I get a totally different solution.

Has anyone been through this, and can lay out the math first, and then the implementation into Orbiter API?

TIA.
