The results you do get are mostly players showing off.

" I can show you how to navigate" " you line your missile up on the target and "
No, please wait. I need to know how to navigate in the aircraft. Is there an auto pilot? How do I operate it?
"yeah well ya need to line up your attack run and"
Stop, please. What do I need to do between turning the power on and becoming an ace killer like you?
"well you need to load ya pods with these things and swing in from the"
Thank you, someone is at the door, I need to go over there now.

I did come across a really good tutorial, some guy called Robert ?. Only on the Su25T.

If I had known this program was only for qualified experts I don't think I would have bothered.
I certainly would not have spent money on FC3 if I had known you have to just mash the keyboard controls until something happens, then work it out for yourself what it did, and why.
I just keep plugging away at it, every now and then something works.
But no, we are pretty much on our own Bro.
This!..is what is WRONG with the world right now.. Somehow we forget about.. training hard, working even harder.. and not just expect that we can become proficient 'over night' in any field, just by reading 'tutorials' on 'how can I get rich' or 'how can I meet women' etc.. and, instead, we complain that we are helpless in achieve something because other people should do more than us, for us, instead of.. US!!! Feel me..?

I wish they made that clearer to newbies like me when they buy their products.

My basic, basic question:

Is there a detailed manual on how to fly and land the A-10A in FC3? Something like a walk through, for example:

To fly:
1. Press button x to start engine
2. Increase throttle to 50%
3. Arm master switches (which ones?)
4. Release brakes (what button?)
5. Adjust flaps...

I'm looking for a detailed walk through tutorial, not a reference manual or user's guide telling me _where_ and _what_ the buttons are for. Instead, I need to know *how* and preferably also *why*.

I see a lot of people enjoying this game. Please help me have fun with this too.


You should watch Bunyap's YouTube videos. He goes in to incredible detail with regards to systems, why things are connected etc. His channel is here:

CM Storm case | i7 6700k @ 4GHz | MSI GTX1080 | 32GB Kingston Predator PC3000 RAM | SB ZXR sound | TM Warthog stick & throttle | TrackIR 5 | Samsung Evo 850 2TB | Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

Personal wish list: DCS: Su-27SM.
