Same here, I crashed 3 choppers and 2 jets so far. I really want a training server to practice.

First time I got in a jet, I switched it right away to 3rd person, wich was a mistake because the camera doesn't roll when you roll. So, as soon as I took off, I rolled it straight into the ground, since I was so disoriented. I'm sure I pissed a lof of people off.

You type "training" in the server browser and a few will come up. Just remember to limit the search to maps which with jets.

Here's my tip and it helped me and many others out tremendously. I usually play hardcore so it's always the cockpit cam,which is easier for me.But just swap the stick layout on the heli and jet to southpaw.You fly the jet with the left stick and it feels more natural.Let me know if it helps.

Same here. Just about all console games use the left stick for the jet stick and helo cyclic control and the right stick for yaw. I can't quite fathom why DICE would do it backward from the standard.

I've gotten quite good at the helos after many crashes and missile hits but dodging lock-ons in between trees and buildings will definitely give you a crash course in fine control of a helo. I suck in the jets and can't quite get oriented to it yet. I really think I need an actual joystick, lol.

On consoles, you'll press in the right thumb stick, or R3.

Someone please tell me how to fly Jets lol I can't seem to perfect it. I'm on PS3 btw. So if you could tell me the buttons I'm meant to use with each other to maneuverer properly, would be appreciated. Thank you
