I got like three "topic is a mandatory feild" errors and a "no topic found" error while trying to reply! One of you hit the delete button, tsk, tsk!


Anyway, here was my reply:
************************************
Whew, not very simple questions!


1 and 2 seem related to me. When landing, you must know how to do certain things, or at the very least, know of them. I would suggest practising this:

Learn to change altitude with the throttle, not with the joystick. You should be landing quite slowly, first of all. In this landing configuration, you should be able to maintain altitude consistently, and then change your arte of climb or descent with the trottle: more throttle, you climb, less, you descend. Learn to do this smoothly and slowly to descend, or at least be aware of the principle, and you may find your landings are a bit easier. Sounds to me you're coming in at too great an angle, and too fast

On 3, well, there are books written on the subject, literally.

Consider a few manuevers, like the high and low yo-yo. Basically, you are behind the target and can't pull a lead on him, or can't keep up in the turn, or you can't catch him. An option is to climb, or dive, and either roll in his direction out of the climb to pounce on him, or use the speed you gain in the dive to catch him. of course, I can't recommend either of those, not really knowing the problem you're having.

In a turning pursuit, you have two initial options:

Lead pursuit (not like a lead pipe or Led Zeppelin, Lead as in "leader")
and
Lag pursuit

Lead pursuit means your nose is ahead of his plane in the turn, basically. You are trying to 'cut the corner' or "lead" him, and travel a shorter distance in the turn that he is. That can make you catch up, but your angle of intercept may be high and that means a high deflection shot sometimes

Lag pursuit means you fall behind the enemy on purpose. You travel a slightly further distance, but you may lose less speed and energy in the turn. Also, your shot at him will tend to be a lower deflection if you get in range

I recommend you read up on any Air Combat Manuevering tactics you can; real-world techniques apply here

Nah. The mods here are all first rate and very responsive and willing to help at every turn and always get back to you in an ASAP kind of way.

Why would you want to go off on the mods of this forum? That's way out of line, totally uncalled for and might even result in punitive action.
