How to turn off the camera lag

I've been through what I thought was all the settings menus, but have not yet been able to turn off the camera lag. It makes high speed passes nearly impossible and I'd like to reduce it to zero. Does anyone know how?

I don't know how to do it but just curious, how fast is the plane going?

Is it a "camera lag" problem or a low frame rate problem? I tried RFX with an inadequate video card, and the low frame rate made it totally unflyable. Is it OK with other cameras?

The frame rate is fine, but the problem is the intentional delay of the camera back behind the airplane. Another way to think of it is that the airplane is not in the middle of the screen- the faster it moves, the further it migrates over to the side of the screen.

In RF8 this is a setting that we can turn off (which is great) but I have not yet found the setting in RFX. On a high speed pass that is close by, it causes the camera to snap so fast that I can't keep sight of the plane and fly it precisely. The closer the airplane is, and the faster it is going, the worse the problem is. If the camera would just follow the plane with the plane in the middle of the screen, this would not be a problem.
