Why do the controls suck so bad...

I find it easy to pursue an enemy plane but also difficult to escape. Maneuvering in 1st person view isn't very hard for me

I don't know - it's like the pilot has parkinsons disease. Everything is so damn jittery.

Wouldn't say it was jittery, actually quite smooth for me.

I don't find the flying part hard, but bombing I just cannot pick up. I only really use them in Air Superiorority.

Actually it's fairly easy for me. At first I crashed alot until I found out that my Y-Axis controls for my plane wasn't inverted. I am not happy that you have to hold down a damn button in order to keep the thing flying instead of changing it to use the stick like in the vehicles.

Edit: I agree with snake that bombing is shit.

It's not just you.  After directly hitting numerous tanks and not killing them I eventually stopped going after them.  The MG works pretty well on cars and infantry so I just stick to that.

I think the biggest stupidest issue is the enemy plane indicator. That is so retarded, it's not fair if you can't outsmart the enemy because once you pass he's FOV and you pull your stunts he just follows a stupid red arrow.

It's like going into the middle of a street in a firefight with a huge neon sign saying, "Shoot here".

Lol, thats true...but then it is like that in all air combat games Ive played, i.e. HAWX and Im sure Air Combat was the same.

True...that is, of course, if you can find them. After playing BF2 where all vehicles were represented with a big square...I just find 1943 flying to be... harder. There we go, I said it
smoove for me   and a ton easier than my attempts at flying in bf2

I can fly well offensively, but defensively not so well. I just try to out maneuver them, but if they are a decent pilot they can probably hang. Letting off the throttle when turning can help you turn tighter, but it can also make you an easier target. The problem with the bombs is their blast, it just isn't powerful enough. To kill infantry you have to hit them directly with the bomb, anything less and it doesn't seem to count. The guns are great though, can take out infantry and cars with ease. The guns can take out the anti-air gunner, but it seems like it takes a lot of hits to get him. I'd like to see them adjuster the bomb strength/radius. I'd also like them to get rid of the enemy plane indicator.

Shooting infantry with the guns is my favorite part

If play play on PSN, add me westPHXaz

You should try flying the aircraft in bf1942. Even easier than flying in bf1943. At least with a joystick it is easy.

Flying in BF42 is easy, dogfighting isn't. I also used a joystick but then it decalibrated itself. Haven't had a joystick since

I think they should limit the angle the AA guns can go down to. There's no friggin escaping them once they start firing besides flying out of its range, but by then you're plane and your ass is filled up with flaming shards of debris.

I'd like to be given the chance to evade by diving low and flying low, adding risk of crashing, but gains of not getting pelted. Besides, wtf is the point of a flak gun that shoots at 0 degrees when it has no effect against tank or infantry.

I don't think removing the plane icon would help. It would make matters worst cause we can really only see in the front and the rear. Anything to our sides are blindsides. They should implement some buttons to look to the sides if they remove the icon. Also, bombing does suck. It's like dropping coconuts cause they sure as hell do no damage if you drop it 2 inches to the right of a guy's head.

I can't fly for shit! Best thing I've managed so far was, lifting off, flying straight and crashing while trying to make a turn.

I also tried plugging up a usb joystick I had lying around - massive failure. Since you can't assign buttons to it the thing is worthless. I can fly around fine and occasionally shoot down plans and take out ground targets. There is just something off about the controls. The right and left is way to touchy. I tried lowering my sensitivity all the way and it's still way to much.

There is a button to look around when in a plane. The problem is the view control is not inverted like the plane controls so its a bit shitty.

Yea, i think the controls and shit should stay the same.

What needs to change is some sort of evasive maneuver. Like if you fly low enough your plane icon won't show up on enemy radars. Also, i think flying low should also allow you to evade AA guns. That will make things a bit more balanced

But BF2 and BF2142 didn't have it and that lead to some amazing dogfights. Also, if the planes aren't equally matched, then the indicator would make the person in the best plane invincible if he knew what he was doing.

I miss dropping down onto J10s and taking them out with machine gun fire while they were slowing down to take out a helicopter or lining up to reload. You can't do that if the enemy knows you're being you because of some stupid icon.

Still fail at flying. I've managed to learn how to stay in the air though, that is, without anyone trying to gun me down
