Hi guys,

I'm learning to fly, learning to fly.....gotta love Tom Petty! :P

here is a helpful link to piloting a helicopter. I figured we should start using these strange contraptions to our advantage instead of letting them collect dust on the tarmac.

The above link is for the PC for any MPs who are interested. Still lokking for a guide for consoles.

Feel free to post any links you find.

maybe we should start a private match sometime on the PS3 and all just do it with intent of learning to fly the chopper. I know how to fly them, but I never get enough time in one to figure out my flight control configuration...so I pretty much flip upside down. I am all down for a private match if you we can get enough to do it. Waddya say?

yeah, in too

I've been trying to learn on atacama, but it's quite hard to get enough flight time to actually learn anything...

I want to get that air vehicle pin, it's one of the last ones I need :D

Dropping straight down (L2) seems like the easiest way to dodge an incoming missile in a chopper, just don't hit the ground. If you are locked (via the tracer dart), its harder, but I read that the vehicle smoke screen makes it easier. I haven't ever tried the smoke yet.

No problem REMEC! I know how it goes. :) We have to set a time here and then show up online together. I tried to do an invite last night for a private match but nobody joined, they were too busy killing baddies! :applause: I am probably going to take the weekend off and show up next week sometime, but with the birth of our baby imminent, I may dissappear for a bit. We will make this happen!

This is an excellent vid for the XBOX 360: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t36YHObY ... re=iv#t=4s (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t36YHObYN58&annotation_id=annotation_280628&feature=iv#t=4s)

Also, let's keep in mind that this is just a game. We don't have to perfect all the time (just ask my wife :)) )! I say, if there are a couple of MPs in a match why not team up and just grab a Helo? So what if we crash the thing? How the hell else are you ever going to learn? The PC guys have an advantage because they can run a private map and just fly around all day, but we are limited to in-combat training which is a helluvalot harder, IMO. I don't think it is really all that hard, but I find I am so intimidated that I just don't bother. At least if it is just two of us MPs then we aren't killing innocent teammates ;) .

Also, it would be best if both MPs were running engineer kits that way you can fly back to attackers deployment, jump out and repair the bird then get back into the action. If you watch the vid it also gives a breakdown of the various specialist options and how they effect the helo class. And, best case scenario both guys will have headsets and mics for comm. See ya' in the skies!

The second engineer can repair in flight if he jumps to a non-gunner seat.

Just be careful to press X and not O (as you would do to repair a tank)... B-)

Same here...nothing like dropping out of bounds, scramble to get back only to suicide and have the game make fun of me. EPIC FAIL! :))

I'd like to get with a group for a private match and practice some flying on the PS3. It seems that there isn't enough time during a regular game to try and figure it out except for crashing! Especially the attack helicopters!

unless ur me geting in the helo just to crash it. put c4 all over it and chash right next to the m comm works like a charm.

I went into the controls and inverted the controls! It's a trick i learned playing 1943, and it is a HUGE Help. I couldn't fly to save my life before, but i flipped the controls and last night i wasn't great, but i was able to fly in circles while my gunner laid waste. it sure beat the h3ll out of crashing!

it makes the left stick work like you would think...push away from your body to go forward, towards your body to go backwards...give it a try, if you are having problems flying, i think it will do the trick

That sounds like a good idea I am going to try out some different controls. But remember if you see me get into a heli to fly it you might want to make sure I am not taking it for a "test drive" because most likely we will all die!! =))

I'm actually getting pretty decent as a chopper pilot, but a pilot is as only as effective as his gunner(s). If someone sees me on and wants to get some practice gunning from a chopper, and talk through how I can be a better pilot for my gunner, I'd be up for that. A good chopper duo can devastate an opposing team. Just lemme know...
