    Lol, that's usually the kind of thing I end up doing.

    it was made worse by the fact I was out of bounds so died within 10 seconds.

    One time I bailed out of my jet as it was going down. Somehow I bailed out in front of it and it killed me as it was falling.

    What do the pilots of jets/choppers here use for controls? Xbox controller, keyboard? I don't have an xbox so i'm hoping someone will come up with some hotkeys that will make flying that litle bit easier..

    Tips for jets and choppers....legacy controls!!!

    As for the angles of turning, if you think its not enough it didn't recognize the input correctly so do it again quickly and it will be fine. I'm not far from guided missiles now which means if people use the soflam on vehicles (any type) I can wipe them out

    Legacy controls means

    Up=up, down=down. Makes flying much much easier

    Is there an option to enable legacy controls, or do I have to set each command individually? *sigh* :P

    Once you have heatseakers they save a bit of hassle in the air (although I switch between heatseakers and gun run)...I do also like FFAF rockets as they do the trick against ground troops and vehicles on occasion.

    Just a thought.. do PS3 controllers work when plugged in via USB? Would seem easier when flying jets.

    Unsure, however my Xbox 360 controller is a "designed for Windows" one, not one straight from an Xbox 360.

    Actually, I think it was deal of the day on Play.com so got it for a tenner/fifteen quid? I liked to play Fifa, NHL & Dirt on my PC, and a mouse & keyboard does not suit driving/sport games.

    Will give controller a try. Already doing the uninverted axis with the mouse.

    And the wired XBox controllers are well worth it for a PC. They should all work with one, plenty of cable and work with a power pack. Shame the keyboard attachment doesn't work with the PC.

    I just use the arrow keys now, A and D for left and right, and the arrow keys for pitch and yaw, spacebar to fire.

    It's just too twitchy with a mouse, but my mouse is very high DPI so that might be why.
