To help with soloing I binded the seat switch buttons to my gaming mouse. It allows me to switch to gunner/thermal vision at the push of a button which helps with the time i get to knock out infantry but when i press the button i binded to switch back to pilot it doesn't work and i still have to push F1. Weird.

also i hate how long it takes for the helicopter to regain its movement after you've switched out of the pilot seat for like 3-4 seconds. I've crashed so many times trying to master it lol.

yeah the only shitty part about soloing is having to fly so high to hit long range tv shots.  it puts you right in the jets backyard.

I practiced doing this yesterday, I can tv effectively but the hit detection is shit. I'll directly hit a target and the actual missile lags between 1-2 seconds after the initial "impact"

just wait until you actually hit something and nothing happens.  that bullshit bug happens 1 out of 3 times i hit a jet.

yeah that one is awsm as well...  actually that's only happened a couple times so far.  far less than the hit/no hitreg bug.

The mobile AA isn't as beastly against a Viper with Guided Rockets and/or gunner with Guided Missiles as it is against infantry.

I don't even sweat the mobile AA on Wake.  I can usually take it out at just under 800m with 2 guided rocket salvos.

took me a while to master the chopper in BF3 again but now that I am finally used to the mechanics....I do quite well.  I prefer to solo with TV missiles since most slap dicks that jump in to gun dont have anything unlocked.

i am very happy choppers can hold their own against jets....I could avoid jets in BF2 but now I actually hunt them down.

Got fed up with never being able to use little bird & z11 thanks to only a few maps having it and people always taking them. And then when I was in one, I didn't have anything good unlocked. Really sad, but I flew around in an empty server capping flags. Even better, shot heli with RPG, hopped in and repaired from passenger seat. Counted towards scout heli points

Play a few rounds with Jord as your scout heli pilot, and you'll have the first 2-3 unlocks in no time.

I stopped doing that quite a while back, but the fact I was in the top 10 in the world is definately on my CV.

And your previous boss fired you because he found out that it was you who raped him on Damavand Peak?

Not quite, only in unemployment could I find the time necessary amount of time to make it into that elite club, the top tenners. And boy was it worth it, I had it all and threw it away.
