I bought the harrier just before Christmas and have been flying (crashing) it pretty much exclusively since then. Now we are only talking ten or 11 days of around 4 hours total flight time which isn’t a lot in my eyes.
After slamming into the Tarawa and bursting into flames and pieces for what feels like the millionth time I thought I would jump back into the F15c to prove I could still fly something without it ending in a funeral…
Incorrect is the word.
I’ve just ordered a new flight stick and actual rudder pedals to improve my stability a bit but I really really couldn’t land the eagle tonight on my usual setup.
I even tried one of the aggressor missions against 2 F5E with guns only and a wingman helping me and I still got my butt handed to me. Although this was partially successful on one attempt with 2 kills but one 1 was me actually managing to fly the opponent into the ground which was nice.
How often do you guys switch aircraft? Do you try and stay current in all your planes or just hammer one until your bored of it.
I absolutely LOVE the challenge of the harrier. It’s just beautiful but I feel my control setup is mainly responsible for my lack of precision so I will have to see when my shiny box arrives next week…
I haven’t even fired (or mapped) the weapons on the harrier yet as I want to get the basics nailed first.
So do you guys suffer from skill bleed like me? I really made a lot of progress with the f15 and now it seems like I’m on the starting blocks again… I was nearly ready to take it online with you guys but that might have to be re thought as well now…
Sorry for the ramble
