    Not really gonna comment on the merit especially as we don't know all that goes on behind the scenes.

    The trick with flying choppers.... throttle control!

    Attack choppers in BF2 were leagues more responsive then transport choppers, but the same thing still applies....

    100% throttle at take off, gain some altitude and set a nice angle (pitch down) which can get you accelerating without losing too much altitude, then ease off the throttle a little to 80% and keep the remaining 20% in reserve.
    By the time you ease off the throttle, you should still be accelerating fast enough towards your destination if done correctly, you might need to pitch the nose down again to bring your speed back up.

    set up your HAT switch on your stick for camera viewing angles so you can see if youre being tailed by enemy jets, attack choppers or Missiles - being able to see behind you is crucial to your survival as you can see if its a Missiles or a jet that has locked on to you and dispense chaff at the right moment rather then too early.

    Most jet pilots can be real crafty. ping you with a lockon so you go apeshit with evasive manovers, jink the chopper all over the place and waste chaff then switch to ground attack mode and move in for a guns kill so you dont they are there...

    Most jet pilots are pussies and will very rarely attack you head on, if they do a head on strafe with a their guns its most likely they are going to try and get behind you to take you out as you cant see them.

    -------

    If someone does get a lockon on you and you can see the missile behind you there are a few things you can do....

    #1 wait until you can see the missile a little closer shouting distance. then throttle right down to zero and literally let your chopper fall out of the sky. the missle might not be able to follow your sudden direction/angle change.

    #2 wait until you can see the missile almost about to hit you then throttle up to 100% and drop chaff at the same time. - this is where the 20% torque in reserve comes in handy.

    Obviously, timing is very crucial and depending on how responsive these new choppers are in BF3.

    the Missiles could also be more agile in BF3 making them harder to dodge so these 2 pointers might not be as effective as they were in BF2

    Maybe :(

    But I talked to him yesterday on MSN about things. Hope he comes back soon. Hopefully he will not be banned from the TS so when BF3 launches, I can have him give that evil laugh when he slides into people with his knife and banana pants :)

    if rockets are like in BC2, they will not simply miss, they will pull a 180 and hit you from the other direction. I once saw a rocket circle a chopper twice before hitting.

    I have to admit that chopper footage gave me a serious erekshun. that guy is an amazing pilot and he uses the terrain really well instead of 'up top' where he could be taken out easily by attack jets and anti-aircraft.

    ^^, His posts are entertaining.. But he definetly takes things too far and gets away with more then say any other user would.. I know I've been banned for less.. Twice...

    --

    But back on topic, did we ever discuss getting a server? I know my group I game with is gonna have one we can mess around in, but what about a TPU member funded one.

    We should stick to one, that was the problem with our BC2 servers... 5 Different users went and got a server and then came into the clubhouse asking for donations, just make it so donors get admin and someone is the primary POC and money collector.

    Maybe when BF3 comes out you can demonstrate in a video for us. Still recommend the Thrustmaster X HOTAS?

    Or can you create one for BF2 chopper flying since BF3 mechanics are similar to BF2?

    Meh, he's just one guy who's funny, he'll be back.

    He can never be perma-banned.

    Bare in mind i love MailMan, just don't want to make a big deal out of his absence.

    Flying since BF2 has been changed only slightly. I loaded BF2 up last night and could still fly like a champ. They changed the turning speeds slightly

    I'll share my infractions in his honor.. But he should serve out his ban like everyone else.. Cause like I said above, he definitely deserves it despite how entertaining he can be.
