How do you hover a helicopter? I tried just pressing thrust in bursts but it seems to go forward and then starts moving completely.

With all these helicopter problems I'm beginning to think there's something the rest of us don't know about flying helicopters. If there's some kind of cheat then that would explain alot...

The helicopters are totally incomprehensible to me. They're just too hard for me to fly.

THat's fine though, I'll just let other people fly them. I've got better stuff to do.

My situation has not improved. I still can't hover the copter :(

The helicopters are really hard to fly. I practice with em and I have to turn really delicately and turning the way I do, I'd get shot up by an AA before my finger gets on the right key :p

That's why I am a land-only person. I don't like flying planes except on Coral Sea. And choppers = never. They're just too damned hard to fly. I don't know how people can do it properly.

Just keep at it. You'll get it. I used to have a hell of a time. My biggest help would be to use the rudder like it was going out of style.

I use a joystick with the 3D axis for rudder control. By the way the new HIND and Blackhawlk in DC are cake to fly.

Also for good practice try the Cobra on PW.5 it is a good beginer chopper that is easy to fly. After you get that down the DC choppers will be easier.

Have fun

Things needed to be a heli pilot:

1. A good joystick with a twist handle. 2. Patience and practice. (practice on your own server though, noone likes a newbie learning to fly during a game.) 3. The fine art of NOT oversteering. (helis tip over easy people.) 4. And finally, the throttle is just as important as the stick. Be gentle with it, unless your escaping a dangerous situation.

Although, that all being said, Ive become a very good heli pilot but I still cant land the hind worth a damn!! I can put that thing down gentle as a baby in a crib and it still blows up on me. WTF!!! Anyone else notice how sensitive it is?
