If you don't know, too bad.

You don't deserve it.

I spent like ten hours practicing in boot camp to learn it. I'd suggest that you and your friends do the same, then come back and know it.

Just remember: Landing your chopper in or around cherno or elektro gives you infinite beans. Give it a try.

No it means that ARMA II has bootcamp for a reason.

Here comes the airplane, open wide!!!!

Not to land where you want to, fast, and lift off, touch and go umd fire... But that's cool.

I spent 5 minutes in armory learning how to fly the helicopter.
Do the same.
I guess those 500+ hours of Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising didn't go to waste after all.

It has taken me 11 years to master aircrafts in BI games. I can bomb cities upside down while top gun music magically drones from the clouds. It took a lot of time to master that last part.

Flying the helicopters is fun. It also helped me to learn the Chernarus map.

Yes, Q Z mouse X C is easy, but it's worth spending some time on and learning good landing zones throughout the map.

Personally I change the contols a bit.

W = increase thrust.
S = decrease thrust.
Mouse left = Left turn.
Mouse right = Left turn.
A = Bank left.
D = Bank right.
Q = Left pedal.
E = Right pedal.

I clean up my controls, so when I move my mouse left, I don't both turn and bank to the left.

In Operation Flashpoint most servers said: Train flying in singleplayer

-Start up ArmA: CO without DayZ. In DayZ singleplayer/editor is disabled.
-Click singleplayer/editor/select map.
-Double click on the map to open the unit window in the editor.
-Side: OPFOR,
-Faction: Takistani Army
-Class: Air
-Unit: UH-1H
-Press Ok.
-Press Preview.

Fly around in the editor, crash 1-20 times and you're good to go.

I'm not a big fan of the auto-hover, it has it's uses, but I prefere to land, while my forward speed is at 15-25kmh, when you touch the ground, you'll slowly slide to a halt.

If you have a bit of spare cash buy a 360wired controller it will make life a whole load easier. Also remove the movement controls from the mouse in settings otherwise if you get sent to desktop whilst flying and use the mouse to return to game you will prob be upside down when you return. Once you have set up ur pad for flying spend some time either in boot camp or armory and get used to flying.
