I have a guy flying Hannovers! They are great! He has bagged three SPADs so far, too! The trick to surviving is if you see anything that looks remotely like a bad guy then dive away! Spin away to lose height. Yes... I am 'hähnchen' but survive better than most. Try to engage only if you can fly at tree top level and try to fly over friendly encampments. You risk pranging your buggy but the bad guys are worse for it and crash more often.

I just have the DiD career going right now. It is more than enough flying for me. Just transferred back to a Brisfit Sqn, a plane I never expected to like, but very quickly became my favourite to fly surpassing even the Camel. It is surprisingly maneuverable, stalls gently, and has teeth on both ends.

I’ve had several Brisfit careers.
Problem is, since I usually fly like a maniac in combat, I rarely hear from my partner in the back seat!

Yes, it does take a certain amount of effort to keep your observer in the war, but it can be worth it in many circumstances, especially if you can get below and slightly in front of Hun two seaters.

"Willy" Kaulitz, Jasta 2, January 1917. Even though poor Willy is the leading Kanonen in the Jasta, with his 14 victories, he's still flying an old hand-me-down Albatros DI (from Boelcke himself, while less accomplished fliegers are flying D IIs, and even a few D IIIs. Apparently, Herr Hauptmann dislikes Willy. Willy had been promised a new D III to accompany his Blue Max, but when "Little Manny" (he hates it when Willy calls him "Manny") went off to take command of Jasta 11, he took Willy's D III with him.
