Here's a short cinematic type video of the quick mission vs AI dogfight. Won handily but my wingman bought the dust. I'm LOVING the spitty so far. Great fun to fight with, and I got the hang of landing/takeoff fairly quickly. Still end up in the grass on landing sometimes but it's not that bad.

I just dont want to sound too clever, but I think the landing was great all the way.. I mean I was saying to my self how this can go extreme.. but then in the last last part of your landing you didnt have enough patience
In the flare you started to pull the stick too much so in the end it was one point landing - tail wheel first
Next time just little bit more patience, not to pull too much and it will be nice three point landing

Here's a quicky 2 minutes fight vs 190. I was a bit aggressive with controls

First few kills in the Spitfire on Burning Skies yesterday. And a few clips of the Spit getting killed.

Hey DefaultFace, how are you that good? I cannot see anything flying around, and when I'm in a fight I just get trounced most times. I can manage the F5 and Mig21 okay (Mostly F5) but when it comes to warbirds, there is simply no smoke/afterburner to spot.

I also find myself not holding energy like that, I just wind up flopping into a turn fight, ending up slow, and then dying horribly. And much like your Signature, it's not wrong at all.

Well step 1 is to cut all the parts out of the video where you crash into the ground, miss your target completely, get shot down and or do anything else stupid. Makes one look very good

In all honesty I'm not that good, there are others that I fly with who are much better. I have a fair bit of practice at this point though and flying with good pilots/wingmen really helps ease the learning curve. Holding energy comes down to clean and disciplined flying. Try to stay calm in a fight and know that you cant outturn a spit at 300 km/h no matter how hard you pull. Go back up and try again. In the 109 getting a feel for the rudder and flying coordinated makes a big difference as well. All in all practice is essentially the best tip I have to offer. And find a good mentor/squadron of people to fly with.

Other than that make sure you have the labels turned on in Burning skies. =BS= eekz did a good job getting them to the point where they are actually pretty good now. Spotting in DCS is also just a lot of practice and getting used to.

Well today went better. I spent some time on a quiet server with 2 friends and had some dogfights in the 109 there. Then switched later to Burning Skies and managed to get three kills and land safely enough in the 109.

Alright, 1 kill I never saw happen - just that I hit someone. Second kill was a good kill and the third was some poor sap in a seized engine Spitfire.

Heh.

Nice! Keep it up, it's the only way to get better.
