Operating the systems is fairly easy. The first thing any pilot is drilled in for months
is how to fly the aircraft. No weapons, no funny stuff - so focus strictly on flying for a little while. Forget weapons, forget targets - just free flight and fly around the airfield making the aircraft do what you
want it to do.
Like Nate pointed out, you might just be running into AP interactions and you're fighting them - check up on that first. A video or track of your troubles would be useful.
I'm getting fairly proficient with the weapons systems.. but goddamit, I can not fly this thing worth a damn.
I'm having a ton of trouble setting up in a nice stable hover, so that I can actually deploy the weapons. It seems like I try and get setup to scan for targets and shoot, but I'm constantly fighting the bird to stay put. I watch some videos on youtube, and some of the training missions and the bird is in a basically perfect hover.
Any tips on hovering, and also evasive maneuvers?
