I want to start flying with everything realistic just starting with practice flying to get a feel for not using any pilot aids.

Whats the most basic plane to start on, and can anyone recommend a kinda training regime http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ie a progression through different plane types to break myself in gradually.

start with the p47d27, once you get good any other aircraft is the easiest thing to fly

is that a case of throwing myself in at the deep end?

Throwing yourself in the deep end with concrete shoes and an anchor around your neck.

Start with the Il2. It has extremely forgiving flight characteristics and is almost impossible to stall.

You want to start with everything realistic? Fly a REAL plane, then. I'm afraid this is just a simulation. There's nothing real here. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif

Spits are also a safe bet.

I started with a Hurricane and P40. Both are good fun to learn in. The P47 is the deep end. Good luck.

If you do want to endure a baptism of fire then reach for the p47.

BUT

If you are a real beginner in the arena (and want to try and balanced and forgiving plane) i advise you to pick up a yak 1b.

It's not very fast but it's quite nimble and easy to control... (You won't go spinning into the ground every 2mins as most new guys do with the jug)

It's low speed will teach you to use the most of E (energy) and utilise tactics that will allow you to come out on top.

It has a single cannon and MG along the centre fuselage - neither has very much ammo nor is particularly powerful... however! This again will force you to become a better shot, to shoot accurately and learn to conserve your ammo - There is enough there to down about 3 planes if you're careful!

It's a great plane to learn with - with no marked superiorities to rely on - if you want to do well in it, you must work at it!

But as I said it's also very forgiving and a beaut to fly.

Good Luck! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Start with Spit. Nice FM and...MIRROR http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

Start with something like a Cessna-150. Go down to your local FBO and take advantage of their first time lesson special. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

After all, this is just a game. Realistice he says! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

commendable task sir.

This was suggested to me early on by an ace, and it was good advice.

I learned to see and track and identify. Skills that are many times more important than throwing around the stick.

I assume the p47 was selected so to teach you about energy. Something like a spit will teach you to throw the stick around at any given opportunity.

I suggest you fly offline in QMB full real and begin to learn these things first.

Salute!

I think i phrased the question wrong, chucking the plane around and using energy etc isnt my problem, ive had the game since day zero.

ive just never bothered with complex engine management and that sort of thing, i want too start using engine management and pitch prop etc to real advantage.

Maybe not the spit then, cos theres no mixture, supercharger adjustment.

Try the LA5fn, it did me fine when I started. Supercharger changer at around 3500 I think. Keep at it, it will be a little harder for you since you`ve flown easier before. I do advise starting with realistic settings right from the start (with icons, on plane map as well).

Ignore the jibes about the word `realistic`, these guys are as usual missing the main point to try and hijack the thread for a silly argument when we all know what you mean.
