Buy SA and do the flight missions. One of the most f*cking aggravating things ever in a videogame, but it'll teach you how to fly.

 

(I had to buy 2 controllers for that mission, I broke all of mine, lol.)

First you need the space to land.

Then to land nicely you have to be careful and do it slowly.

You can come down fast without blowing up though.

 

Controlling it just be careful and practice.

 

The thing is if you try to turn whilst going fast you keep going straight so you need to control the speed and be CAREFUL.

Practice, yeah. They're not as easy to control as in the other GTAs. Whatever you do, don't use that Sixaxis stupid movement thing if you have a PS3. That's the worst thing to use.

It's actually very easy and rewarding when you get used to it. My advice is to get in a chopper, and get to a high altitude and just get a 'feel' for the controls, then try doing a circle of the statue of happiness, finally practise landing, dont forget that you can change cam views! Good luck sir. Roger wilko and out.

You got to land slowly because if you land quickly (even not that quickly sometimes) the windows shatter.

It's still a sign that your helicopter is damaged but it's not terrible as I can always get another one (if I ever got the Police Maverick then I might not get it back as that thing is very difficult to get, never got it yet).

To stop you must pull back as if going backward, hold L2 and R2 to hover, then lightly hold L2 to descend. use R1 and L1 to make turning easier/more effective. When beginning to go froward from a hover, lean hard forward to go the fast. You will lose altitude, and will need to let off of the forward motion to regain.

When you get in your helicopter, find your favorite song or station. Just fly around the airport and learn the controls. Relax. If you lose your tail, just accellerate towards the direction your blades are facing until you find some flat land, and slowly bring 'er down. smile.gif Hope this helped.

Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, getting there, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, this is fun, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, this is wicked, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, Practice, this is my fave form of transport.

 

It's very hard to actually show someone how to fly with ease, even if you're in the same room. The best advice I can give is don't move the stick too much, when trying to land, It'll find it's own center, relax, it's actually quite hard to kill yourself in a chopper (unless you jump out)

If you have a PS3, make sure you take off the Sixaxis control. It's worthless.

The Sixaxis thing in GTA4 is pretty stupid. It's hard to control and useless in sharp turns.

I have the 360, but i'm not sure if the PS3 has the click-thumbstick feature. Anyway, when landing, for the 360, click and HOLD the left thumbstick to make the helicopter hover, then slowly press down, NOT ALL THE WAY DOWN, on the left trigger. Can't get any better landing = )

 

To fly, get into a heli and leave it like 1 minute to fly upwards by pressing the RIGHT trigger. Then you can just play around with the thumbsticks. Use the right thumstick or the BACK button and get yourself a good view. First person view might help. Helps to fire those machine guns cool.gif

I agree, but it's a bloody cool way to reload.
