I'm just going to keep on the training mission setup until I get better, then alter the enemy AI setting.

I am really going back to basics though. I have started in the Po-2 for basic flight, then up to the I-153, then I will go to a LaGG 5FN (my fave Russian bird).

I will eventually (after I convince 'er in doors) get a stick though.
It's just LA. There was no LaGG (aka Lavochkin-Gorbunov-Goudkov) after mid-1942. Lavochkin took it all over, and Gorbunov and Goudkov both went under... somewhere?


Nice to be back by the way guys.

The tactics and manouvers you use depend on the oponent, dont try out turning one of those russian planes as you'll end up in little pieces quite possibly on fire. Also the Germans planes are lethal in a head to head attack.

Its nice to be back

I'm just getting the hang of the Immelman and finding it very useful to get behind and above enemies but haven't really got into anything more complicated yet.

I'm sure when you know how to perform a particular move the written description makes total sense but for me its hard to visualize what the description is trying to communicate. Might be a good idea to Youtube the manoeuvres themselves?

I've been trying to practice turning and looping while maintaining lock on a target as well. Still gets me pretty disorientated and often leads to a stall but I'm getting better.
Hello, i strongly suggest you to read this:

Those rules have been very helpfull for me.

p.s.: I fly simulator only

Have fun
