Half the time I have the enemy fighter in my sights, we're flying in circles I manage to lose him. he goes past my field of view and then I have to start circling around like a jackass till he flashes by my screen then try gettin' behind him again. Any aces have any tips on how to stay circling behind the target without losing him?

One thing that works better in mods with Jet fighters is to go vertical, then slowly glide down and look for the enemy.

Keep an outside view until you can get enough lead on the gunsight.

Or break up or down because most people dont look there circle wide while the bandit continues a tight circle and get him on a straight away

I don't really like dogfighting because since DC came out I used the choppers, and stopped playing BF for a while, so I lost my touch In dogfight.... Now I'm good + (lol) with choppers, assualt, spec ops. I learned a pretty good way to win mostly any assault combat I get into.

I can fly the choppers ok, tho I have seen many many people better than I. My biggest gripe with the helis are the people that somehow think every one that spawns belongs to them. LMAO
