That's a good guide on flying the Dodo. I read through it once because although I've managed to fly the Dodo before, it was only ever quite brief...enough to get across from the end of the runway to Staunton at a height of about 40 feet tops.
But last night, with lots of practice, I was getting to the point of being able to stay in the air for several minutes. Flew over the Liberty City Cocks Stadium, and thought about trying to find the Ghost Town, but wasn't sure where it was.
I did end up flying round behind one bit of land which turned out to be behind the hill in Shoreside Vale where the swanky houses are. There was no back to the hill, and I ended up underneath the land! Crashed and burned and got wasted and ended up on the ground behind the swanky houses.
But seeing Liberty City from high in the air is such a great experience, so I urge anyone who's not flown the Dodo to practice and practice until you can do it.
Best thing is to get the Dodo and store it in your Staunton lockup and save, so you don't have to go too far to get the plane after each time you crash! Also, it's best not to try and learn to fly in the middle of a town, as you'll inevitably hit other vehicles, buildings or obstacles. Go to the edge of a town where there's a nice clear area. Somewhere with a bit of a drop-off is good too, as it helps build the speed to stay in the air.
