I just started flying on-line. I'm awful. I get out-turned by everything. Any links to combat techniques/tutorials? Thanks.

I were close to getting into my aircraft (of choice) and just roll it into the lovely (water=1), since i have an old fx5600 (256 mem). but after understanding 90% of the opposition were using [cockpit off] i was just pretty **** bad as a pilot, not useless!

if you still fly like Ricky Lake on heroin, i really like to have a few training passes with you. As real as possible as i'm still pretty hopeless as a pilot, and also need to improve a lot.

I understand where you are at- after 4 years offline this week I went online and stank- seriously sucked- I have read just about everything and still no use- but Im having fun learning.

The best I can offer is to get on line communications like teamspeak and use this to chat to the pros who are friendly and who will look out for you.

one other recommendation is this


good luck

Well I am getting my butt handed to me on a regular basis, but I keep on getting out there. Sometimes it's frustrating, but I just tell myself it's a learning experience and chat up the other players...mostly quite nice and friendly, always happy to kick my butt and take me to school.

What's so surprising is the massive difference between off and on-line flying. I can kill Ace AI pilots in droves, no problems and I thought flying on-line wouldn't be so tough. What a shock. Also, seeing real world tactics at work makes me appreciate even more the depth of this sim.

I would welcome the opportunity to do some beginner dogfighting if anyone was interested.

James let me get this taking off thing down and I would be happy to dogfight you... although it would be more of a dog vs. a cat with 2 broken legs. (cat = me) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Grow up and quit turning. Take off, get up to 6900 meters alt. Look for enemy tracers or dots coming from the enemy airfield, get over them, approach at a shallow dive going 600-750 km/hr, shoot them and zoom back up to safety.

This works best on full-difficulty servers where you don't have a big colored arrow and a banner hangin off your plane telling everyone who and what you are.

What Jumoschwanz says but also see if the server has a ventrillo or TS server and join that. Try to pair up with someone, you do allot better and probably learn something too.
