I played online in the dogfight room for the first time last night. I've only had the game a few days now.

I've learned a lot already. Yes I got my butt kicked but I'm learning.

I flew the Hurricane with the mod not the IIC or IIB. Everybody was able to out fly me. Am I doing something wrong or picking the wrong plane for the job.

Thanks sms380

Give the Yak 3 a whirl. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

May the wind sweep you off your feet, and guide you to the distant stars.

Put your elevator trim on a slider and apply the RBJ Shift for fast response.

Hurri is a slow machine. You can get a little more power out of it by setting 120% mix, WEP and 110% throttle. It never overheats (at least until the patch).

If you want fast, maneuverable machines, you'd be well served by the Yaks, the Yak-3 being the best and probably the easiest plane to use. La-5s, La-7s and 109s are equally fast (especially 109K with MW50 and 103% throttle), but a tad less maneuverable. FW-190s and P-47s are equally fast (fastest being FW-190D9 with MW50 at 103%), but with poorer acceleration and climb; pick these if you want a challenge, or have a durability fetish. If you just want pure climb and turn, and nothing else, nothing beats the I-16 and I-153.

But of course we all know that the P.11 is the best plane in the game /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The Hurricane turns real good, and climbs better than it should. The patch may make it less effective. I think it's way to slow, and don't like it. It's a good noob plane as it's impossible to stall it, and it never overheats.

If you want to fly on the Russian side, than the Yak3 and La7/La5FN are a good choice for you. They are easy to fly, and are much faster than the Hurricane. The Yak3 doesn't have much ammo. The La7/La5FN is much better in ammo count.

If you want to fly German. All the late 109's (G6a/s, G14, G10 K4 are deadly planes, but have a poor turn rate, so you can't fight Russian planes in a turn fight. You'll need to learn how to do B&Z type of fighting. If you want to turn fight a german plane. The F4 is pretty good, but will be at a disadvantage to late Russian planes.

Do they let you fly a P11c online. Looks like fun for a change.

Do they have P11 furballs? Can't wait for Gladiator, CR~42.

You're not doing anything wrong. The Hurricane is maneuverable, but it's not very fast. People in faster planes will be able to run away from you, so your best option is to catch them by surprise or sucker them into a slow turning fight.

Anyway, if you're flying online you will get your butt kicked regularly. There are some utterly amazing pilots out there. Hope you're enjoying the game, S!
