    Its Dice, I'm sure it will work out.

    I think they become so overpowered because of the numbers. Sometimes you have over half a team sniping. As soon as you spawn you just get sniped again and it only take one bullet to the body so they don't even have to worry about getting a headshot.

    I meant any of the rockets. RPG/M2CG/M136.
    I like the RPG the most but any of them work.

    We need to play sometime together.

    I fly with keyboard and mouse. so as far as throttle goes, if there isnt a HUD displaying that info, i fly by the sound of the engine.

    I have a craptastic Saitek Cyborg X. I have tried using it but it makes no sense and is very difficult to use.
    I wouldnt mind one of those stiff sticks like Logitech has in their higher range or the HOTAS but Im not rolling in dough and flour

    I started off with a Cyborg Evo Force

    there was a bug with the drivers with BF2 that made any jet or chopper yaw to the top left. so it basicly made flying impossible.

    the bug was widespread, saitek released multiple patches and fix's. none of them worked. so i took the evo back to the shop for refund and just said it was faulty.

    the saitek joysticks look nice though.

    If youre not rolling in dough and flour, look for a cheaper alternative called the 'Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X' highly recommended.

    Are there any that are best for flying choppers? As that seems to be my forte per-say.

    a joystick is a joystick. doesnt matter which one you use*, so long as it has a throttle and buttons for weapons switching, attacking and chaff.


    (*So long as the drivers aint buggy with the game)

    No idea but with that particular model you linked, they are talking about the rudder pedals having adjustable resistance, not the actual stick itself.

    Some say its shopped. I don't think it is. It was posted by guy who works for EA, why then he should do that? They are obviously testing the beta for some time now

    So, the general consensus is to replace the craptastic cyborg X with the THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X for BF3? I'm not rolling in dough and flour so my bucks need to count. I want to be the best damn chopper/a10c pilot i can be. I have been using the k/m to fly in BFBC2 and BF2.

    In my opinion. force feedback is more of a gimmick. it adds very little to the overall experience. the thustmaster HOTAS makes an excellent buy. Its a solid peice of kit and has many great reviews.

    It might be worth waiting for the beta to come out to see what joysticks work well with the game.
    I never did get the throttle on my Thrustmaster Fox Pro 2 to work with BFBC2.
