@ people who fly

Post by gijohn2 on Tue 5 Apr - 12:27:20

How many of you use joy sticks? And which one do you use if you do :)

As im learning to fly ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VQ_3sBZEm0 ) but i find using the keyboard abit annoying especially when making corrections / balancing the speed when landing

Any help would be nice Razz

Top tune..........

The more you practice the better you get.

Helis I use stick Jets I dont fly as cannot be arsed putting the hours to learn to land. Give me a flight sim and I can fly any thing and stick the landing even better if it has autopilot and ILS but PR no chance. Get a a certain speed and it drops like a lead brick.

Im using keyboard and mouse and so far that goes awesome. Sometimes I just get into a training server and practice some landings and supply drops. I got a joystick never use it tho Razz

Old Stick: Logitech Attack 3
New Stick: Saitek Cyborg X

Practice makes perfect dude, practice on a training server with mouse/keyboard or do as I do, USE A JOYSTICK with Throttle, makes it a lot easier flying. :)
I cant fly a plane or a heli for that mater, without my stick, it just doesn't "compute" aka I keep crashing the damn things so, no stick, no flyin' for me. :p

Mouse and key for helis like most ppl have said and you might be able to get away with mouse and key for a bomber (A10 - Frogfoot) but fighter jets you got no chance you will always get outmaneuvered by a player using a joystick
