I highly recommend buying a gamepad, if you're doing it just with the keyboard and mouse, then it's probably near impossible

Q & E control the rudder

 

A & D control the pitch of the plane

 

W & S control the thrust...

 

 

What's so hard? Just takes practice...

Sir Random

The easiest way is to re-map the keys.

I use the cursor keys for up/down & left/right, and I left W/S for accelerate/slow down.

 

Btw, have you tried the remote-control plane mission yet? It's much harder than flying the normal planes...

That's a negative! I'm using default controls (mouse + keyboard) and i fly like a bird! Like Kremit says... it just takes practice.

 

I recommend using the mouse to control pitch and roll (keyboard equivalents: Page Down/Page Up, A/D) when flying a plane. The keyboard isn't sensitive enough to fly properly.

 

When flying helicopters i recommend using keyboard only.

 

 

Works for me.

I've got close to the VC mapping that worked for me:

 

a/s = left/right bank , d/f = back/forward, numpad 4/6 = left/right rudder, and 8/2 numpad for pitch up/down.

 

I wanted 5 as pitch up, but stupid game won't allow num5 for anything.

 

Oh, and + and numEnter for primary/secondary fire (driveby/guns/missles).

 

Have a friend taking up VC again, and was furious because controls were suctacular.

 

Used my config and all was well, save for a little more practice as he admitted.

It takes a while to get used to, but you can always customize your keyboard. Makes it helluva lot easier when the rudder controls are closer to the d-pad and the mouse for firing weaponry and moving the camera about. Practice makes perfect.. tounge.gif

 

I'm new btw

W/S for speed and activate mouse steering and "flying with the mouse' from the controller options. Now Try flying just by pressing W and moving the mouse about. This takes some practice to get used to...

it took me only 3 tries to beat "circle the airstrip" as well as "circle and land" using the gamepad - its an invaluable thing to have tounge.gif

well what I would do is get a PC controller that is similar to the PS2 controller and program all the PC controls to the exact controls of the PS2. thats what I did for VC and 3 but I do not have SA yet.

I can fly fine but is there no way of steering them on the ground ie taxiing to the runway?

The rudder controls (Q & E) can be used for that....

I am having a huge problem with the flying school. Its that stupid course, circle the airstrip, I finish it perfect every time, and it give me 0% almost every time. The Highest percent I can achieve is 4%. WTF am I doing wrong? I am using a game pad and everything, so frustrating. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I hated the controls at first when I thought you had to use the mouse to properly fly but then I realized the arrows REALLY help me. Used those to get all gold at flight school

Speed, you must keep the throttle open until you are on final approach (landing)
