Im still a begginer and I find myself taking long turns to get behind my enemy. What is the best way to make the sharpest turn without stalling out. Thanks

Although, most will deny using it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif....the fastest turns in FB are achieved using full nose up trim, applying flaps to get over the top of loops and setting up your stick to maximize in-game effectivity.

You can set up your stick from the Main menu under Hardware Setup, then Input. Use the Quick Mission Builder to keep testing and try to set the sliders for a good response curve that lets you use almost maximum deflection of the stick and not cause a stall at speed.

Ease back on the YAW sliders and you'll find that your gunnery will get better faster, too. Also, learning good rudder control is key. it can help you wing over faster, get out of spins by holding full rudder in opposite direction of spin and help you maintain speed in turns.

The rest is experience and getting shot down allot. Also, try to grab a guy you thik is really good online and get on comms with him for a bit. Most Aces are always glad and willing to help out a new player because they know the better the competition, the better the fun.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Outturning is not allways an option. It depends on the plane(s)...

But control-wise - yup was was said already...

Sometimes you might want to seek it in the vertical... Allways keep your energy up - be it altitude or speed...
