I recently bought BF1942 and down loaded FH, I have Flight stick (a logitech wingman extreme digital 3d) so I've been practicing my piloting skills, so far I've gotten to point where I don't crash in to the ground much any more. But I can't seem to get strafing or bombing down. Do you guys suggestions as to which map would be the best to practice on? And I would like to say this is a great mod, it puts vanilla to shame

Gazala is a great map to practice divebombing in the stuka. Plane maps are good for dogfighting (coral sea, BoB, BtR)

Really, just keep practicing. I used to be an ASS pilot. Total, unwiped ass. I couldn't even fly straight. Now, while I'm not the greatest, I'm half-decent and can bomb pretty well and hold my own in a dogfight.

Hmmm...maybe Battle of Britain, Bombing the Reich, El Alamein, Coral Sea, Midway 1942, Gazala, Supercharge (All FH maps, of course).

Practice on Coop mode, so you can have moving and stationery targets.

Those maps mentioned are all good maps to practice on, once you have mastered them in single-player, you will find your self doing very well in multi-player.

Good luck.

Ack! No! Don't buy it, mine worked for three months now the damn thing thinks its always rolling to the left a little bit and them sometimes it thinks the stick is all the way over to the left. So bloody annoying. I'm using a game pad for the moment until I can get my old microsoft sidewinder forcefeed back going again, now that stick was a monster and never failed me.

Yeah that was a very good game, it was quite funny to see 1 lancaster circum to the combined fire of 5 109's then take 2 down with its huge floating wreckage :lol:

I too have gone through countless Logitech joystick, I got me a Saitek Cyborg Evo back in Feb 2005 and its been excellent since and i've only had one problem with calibration.

I dunno why your joystick is doing that... maybe you were too " agressive" with it.. i know how FH can get while ingame ...
