Is there any way PLEASE of changing the controls? It is almost impossible to throttle back AND use yaw control at the same time using the right thumbstick. Whoever thought of that needs a slap.

Please help.

Greetings Fellow Happy PC Gamers:

You know, I LOVE been treated like a second-class gamer in the eyes of UBISOFT just because I choose to use a PC rather than the darling (Red-Ring-Of-Death prone) XBOX 360 console. Especially after I plunk down $40 of my hard-earned money for a DEFECTIVE GAME like BA2 for PC. The PC platform was; and still is, the home of the Flight Sim genre. That's because there isn't a universally-adopted flight control system available for any console to date. God forbid I try to use my rather expensive and quite capable Saitek X52 FLIGHT CONTROL SYSTEM with a FLIGHT SIMULATION GAME! What must I have been thinking? I knew I should have stayed with the professional-quality games like IL-2 and FSX. How can UBISOFT make such a work of art like IL-2, and then turn around and take a giant steaming dump on the flight sim community with Blazing Angels 1 & 2? I have been on the phone with UBISOFT Tech Support (another few hours of my life I will never get back). A patch is coming...a patch is coming! Folks, don't hold your breath for a functional patch anytime this century. We're still wating for a functional BA1 patch since March 23, 2006! I know that next-gen consoles are where the money is at today, but does UBISOFT have to make their distain for PC gamers so blatantly obvious? But they're sure willing and able to take our $40, aren't they?

Written by just another satisfied UBISOFT customer. Happy keyboard-mashing to all of you wanna-be fighter pilots out there in PC-land!

Greetings PC Gamers:

Very rarely in my life have I been made to eat crow so quickly - and it is not because of a bird-strike to the canopy glass. I AM TRULY SORRY ABOUT MY PRIOR POSTING!!! After having blasted UBISOFT so harshly earlier today, I decided to (for the very last time) try to get my X52 stick to work in Blazing Angels 2. Upon clicking play, low and behold, an AUTOPATCH 1.01 window pops up. I installed the patch, and after maping the buttons and stick axis (you guessed it, folks) MY X52 STICK WORKS PERFECTLY NOW!!! I sincerely want to say that I AM SORRY and THANK YOU to the developers. After playing the game for a little while properly, I was able to fully enjoy the drop dead GORGEOUS GRAPHICS minus the verbal swearing and stick beating. To all of those who were on the fence about buying BA2 because of control issues, the green light has been lit. ALL HAIL AUTOPATCH 1.01!!!! I hope to see all of you daring aviators online in the multiplayer arena! I wish to also formally apologize to the Tech Support representative who had to listen to my rant via the telephone. Now about Blazing Angels 1...

Writen by a truely happy UBISOFT customer (no sarcasm this time). Please forgive my impatient nature. Great job you guys! I will be the FIRST in line to purchase BLAZING ANGELS 3 for PC!!!!

I'd join you online...if I could get past the RedSquare mission.
