hey guys. i was wondering what key config you guys find easiest to setup for flying aircraft vehicles :confused: i'm having a hard time picking the easiest controls to fly with. i always end up picking an akward key config and crashing the chopper :mad:

I've had good luck with both Logitech and Microsoft ones. You can get either for $40 and under, depending upon the model you choose. If you buy some off brand, cheap stick, you'll get what you pay for.

Until then though, I've known many who were good using there mouse and arrow keys to fly. I couldn't do it....

I have the exact same one, a Sidewinder Precision 2. It's been a good stick for over a year for me.

I prefer the old Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro. $120 7 years ago seemed a bit much for a joystick (even one that rumbles), but it's proven its longevity. I've used it for BF1942 and Desert Combat but haven't tested it with BF2 yet because I've finally broken it (no resistance on the stick because the AC adapter broke). But I've learned how to fly everything with the keyboard, and once you become good enough at it, you can pull of some pretty good stuff.

Yeah i to have a sidewinder i cant remember if its a 4 or 2 but its really good its not very ergonomic for left handed people like me but i got over it by the way it seems they inverted the name of the controlls for aircraft so by the defualt pull up in a plane is the up arrow for example. What i dont like about the aircraft in bf2 is how fast the planes are the stingers and the igla is hard to use on them while its hard to target stuff at that speed for me while piloting

Flying is much easier if u invert the flying contrl on the mouse. So it like normal flying
