Yes yes people,

After my noob post here, I have been practicing allot after reading the hints and tips that where provided here. I managed to land, take off, and to get out of a stall, even if it is a nasty spin!! Favourite plane is a.t.m. the Yak 3 . Man, does this baby fly or what!! I can take ruff turns, make loops easy, I feel as free as a bird in the sky.

What I am trying to say is:

Thank you all very much for getting me up there and staying alive and well. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif
Hope to see ya€ll soon online!

You better switch to a different plane dude.Yak3 drivers don`t have a good reputation in this world.

Fly what you like but don't ever stop learning!

Here is a tip: stall is not a spin. You can stall without spinning and may not even notice
until you have learned more. Stall is to be avoided though anyway as it causes much loss of
energy.

Learn energy management techniques. You will become a bird of prey instead of a mudhen.

hmm.. Although I know more about flying a plane, I don€t know much about the difference between planes. I may assume that the Yak3 is a German plane€¦. ?

Good news, keep on going then, online will be quite interesting for you.

Nevertheless be prepared for something online.

In real life, airplanes were designed for different types of purposes, not just pure dogfighting with other fighters. Subsequently, some planes more easy to fight another fighter with, some are more difficult to handle that way, and they require more training, patience and teamwork to make it successful for its pilot.

Yak3 is a Soviet plane, and one of those planes that are easy to handle and be prepared that some people, especially when you shoot them down, may degrade your piloting skills by complaining about you taking easy planes.

So you have to know the following:
1. It is your right to take whatever plane the server allows.
2. If you find that your are very successful against someone, it is a nice gesture to take a plane with lesser dogfighting skills, so you can also extend your skills, and your opponents can also get some enjoyment our of playing with you.
3. Even if you are taking an easy plane, opponents may beat you with lesser planes through higher skills, better teamwork, more patience, so never accuse them with cheating.

In the online hierarchy, probably the bomber pilots are the most respected, than the ****-plane pilots lacking firepower and speed, then the pilots of planes optimized for speed (and not turning) and on the lowest appreciated are the people flying the easier turning planes like Yak3, Spitfires, Zekes.

What is quite annoying however, when someone thinks of being a good pilot, takes a plane with lesser dogfighting ability, gets defeated by a pilot with equal competence and a plane that handles better, and starts to offend the pilots of easy planes, calling them noobs and some much worse things. You should plainly ignore that. If he wasn't able to compensate for his plane's lacking with his alleged piloting skills, he wasn't such a good pilot he thought he was. Some guys just can't accept that - they want to appear better by taking hard rides, but unable to deliver the kills, so instead of going back to easy rides, they insult others taking easy rides.

I understand completely what you are saying. Again good hints for me to go further with this lovely game! Thanks rnzoli !

The noob calling .. aaah yesss €¦ I have had this problem with many people online in the game Half Life.

I have played this game for years and my skill level is very high, so many many players are calling me a cheater or even worse (I have heard some name calling, I can write a book about it) I think most of them are very young players€¦ Others may have a very frustrated personality (those are the ones that are hitting there computer or slamming the mouse or keyboard to the ground.)

My personality as Son In Law in Half Life: Always a respected player, never uses name calling, rather tells another that I love him too after he calls me for whatever€¦ Loves a hard and tuff fight. Never gives up€¦ Always want things the hard way..
(So if I see a plane in the sky, I would want to shoot it down with a plane that has less skill)

Already did several quick mission builders. Me alone against 4 others€¦ I LOVE IT!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It`s great because this kind of attitude will serve you while playing the game.Everyone of us had his time when was nothing but a terget.Additionaly prepare for hostile attitude towards all fps players.
You can take it as some kind of gaming promotion.You have a chance to prove that you are any better than just operating a keyboard&mouse.

The players here are much older, more mature.
About the frustrated kind, you'll find some of those here too. There are some guys that can't accept to be owned no matter how it happened. They'll blame it on cheating or anything other then their mistakes. But lucky for us, are verry few of them.

I see here some great FW-190 and P-47 material. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
Just for fun, after you had some kills in the Yak3 go try this two types of aircraft. You can start with easier ones like P-47D and FW-190 D9/FW-190 A6. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

In this planes speed is your best friend.

I would give the P-40 a try. Its a love to fly, it does have its quirks but they are foregivable.

Welcome! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif If you're really serious about playing, you should look up some history about the aircraft - it'll help you with using the proper tactics http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
If you want to try a real best of a ride, I'd suggest trying the MiG-3 once you've got more experience. It's not as hard as it used to be, but flying it is like riding a stall the whole way through http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif - wicked fun and almost no one else flies it (well, except me of course http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

I fly the MiG-3 when it is available. It is one frustrating ride online though ( or it could be ) because I can't find a winning strategy for shooting down Bf-109s! But I have enjoyed a lot of offline success with it and I did manage to bag a couple of pilots online while using the MiG-3U.

Good choice---the Yak-3 is the only airplane in this system that allows you to check behind you with any precision and the clear view windscreen gives you the best outlook for shooting. As Sakai, the Japanese ace, is quoted as saying elsewhere in these forums---checking behind you is 90% of the game. All of the hotter aircraft leave you nearly blind behind because of a systemic defect which keeps you from looking around your armor plate or headrest. Many of the intuitive choices are the best.

CornbreadPattie; my tactics are usually sharp turns and vertical climbs. IIRC the MiG is lighter than the 109, so you can climb better, and it can turn sharper as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Although from my experience, the Yak3 is able to hold energy better than the 190, but i find rthe later to be very rewarding once you get the hang of it - it relies more on perching at higher altitudes and diving down on its prey, shooting (hopefully killing in 1 burst) and climbing back up (Boom n Zoom) - hell that's why they call it the butcher bird http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
