you need to buy a joystick.

Apart from that what you're doing is normal. You probably press the arrows too long and that's why you stall.

Flying with the keyboard is handy at 1/4 speed. But really, for a few dollars you can pick up a joystick and it will make things a whole lot less frustrating.

You owe it to yourself. Now get out and buy one, soldier!

In an aeroplane you turn not by using the rudder on the back but by sticking your hand our into the slipstream on the side to which you wish to turn.

This is why large aircraft have more crew members than small aircraft, it takes more hands to turn a 747 than a Cessna.

You will notice that high performance jet pilots wear gloves, this is stop them chaffing their hands in the cold thin air of the upper atmosphere.

God's truth I swear.

Flying using the keyboard is the equivalent of driving while using your chin to steer.

Your making life extremely difficult for yourself and probably reducing your potential enjoyment of the sim second by second. Woe betide if you even try flying ONLINE like that.

Do yourself a favour. Get a cheap joystick, m8.
