I tend to find if I play on no enemy icon servers, I have great difficulty in seeing the dot of an enemy aircraft, until it's close 2/3k, is this normal, or my pc spec? Any suggestions for improving this? I have dropped my res to 800x600 which has given me the 2/3k. Or is it just my eyesight!

A tip/trick that I learned recently is that you see "dots" farther away if you are on the widest possible view.

I find the wide view is better as well. I ideally I dive from a higher alt than the enemy and keep the enemy above the horizon as I close in. It's easier to see a plane against the blue sky, over snow it's the opposite. Also since I'm below the horizon I'm harder to see. Having icons makes all this moot if they're turned on though.
