Hello fellow gamers! I was wondering if you guys us mouse either joustick, when flying in FH? I have a Joystick and pedals, so that I could use them, but after I played vanilla BF1942 for a few months, I got used using only a mouse. :rolleyes: But what kind of controls do you have when flying, or driving a car or a tank? Cheers!

Dude, JOYSTICK!!! The mouse royally sucks for flying. Can forget the good 'ol arrow keys.

I play FH with my good old arrow keys.

However I find flying in BF/FH a lot easier with a Joystick then with a mouse. But people have been known to master both...

Joystick is the better choice. Though I tend to be a more accurate bomber when I use arrowkeys.

I wish I could use my joystick, but BF has such basic support for controllers I can only use my speedpad. it's one or the other, so I fly by mouse, which means I man an AA gun...

Flying with the mouse is perfectly possible, but if you really want the egde over other experienced pilots you need to use the joystick. But you will need some practice.

Saitek Cyborg EvO Joystick. Works great, no complaints. Makes planes so much easier to fly, but if you've only used a mouse, there's a HUGE learning curve. You will adjust to the stick sooner or later though, then you'll be a lot better pilot.
