Looking for a possible clan so that I can start learning tactics.  In a clan I might get some hints along the way.  Maybe.  I have flown sims before plus I fly RC planes so that aspect should not be too bad. I have to spend some time getting used to the JOY buttons for things like looking behind. Maybe there is nothing like that and I will be on my own which is ok.  I also play a lot of World Of Warships.

They are good at working people up from the ground... they just have a lot of Clan Rules you need to follow.  That is the only one I know if that will train a noob right from the beginning.


I never lose; either I win or I learn.

SF-special forces is the only clan left to my knowledge that trains new people. You need to have a headset to get the best training. You could also flight up with other clan members, they might help. There are a few new clans that might also take you in and will teach you some stuff.

Thanks for input; I don't have a headset at this time but I do have a hands-free microphone plus headphones that I use from my Bose desktop speakers.  Might work for now as long as I don't shout too much.  Have had a couple of flights with some kills.  Last time I went down was from a collision.  I will play around with the camera position in the cockpit and I am trying to use the toggle button on the joystick to keep an eye out for those that mean me some harm.  I am using the rudder a lot for aiming but I sure got to watch out for AA.  Good idea to draw the enemy over to the green side.  I think that I have already been sucked over to the red side, followed by a BOOM.  I will try to come back in here on a regular basis for some more good input.

 

The players at World Of Warships are also very good at helping noobs get started.  Figuring out and earning the required moola to buy ships is a bit tough for me right now.  Same as with buying planes I guess. Only moved up to one new plane and me thinks I will stay about there for now to learn.:izmena:


 

I want to figure out how to add an avatar or pic to my little ID box.

Gray Wolf has some great guys in it, but not too many of them are left playing WoWP.....they also tend to be grumpy old guys  (they are "Gray" Wolf for a reason....)

 

J/K, they really are some nice guys, if a little distracted....


There are very few problems in this world which can not be solved

by a suitable and timely application of concentrated firepower.

Well hell; maybe I would fit right in.  I am not usually too grumpy but I am an old guy.

We would be happy to review your application needle. We only have a few requirements and they are posted on our application. We have guys in and out of team speak throughout most of the day and are members are always willing to help out a new guy. The grumpy part i cannot confirm or deny but i think my buddy _warchylde_ is still a little soar because when he was a Gray Wolf we used to make him fly holding a rubber chicken between his legs.......:P Also our TS is always open, feel free to drop in anytime and join a channel with people in it.ts3server://graywolfgamers.enjinvoice.com/

Many thanks for info and invite.

 

All of a sudden the sun has broken out up here so I likely won't be playing as much WoW  or WoWP.  We have had disgusting weather where I am since end of October.

Anyway, right at the moment I am busy dusting off all my RC models and equipment.  I will be a tad rusty but will be taking 9 planes out tomorrow.  Hopefully they will all return intact.

I put together a 1400 mm Spitfire in January and if I don't get the shakes :ohmy: I will put it up for the first time.  Should be looking at around 120 + MPH.

Yes, I will be coming into the game on a casual learning curve for now.  I will see how it goes.


 

Thanks again.

Have someone record your flights and share them here. There are other RC pilots here as well as players who just enjoy video of them.

Indeed, I haven't flown RC in years (lost my planes and cars in Hurricane Katrina), and could use some good vids.

See what I can do.  I made an error; it is a 1200mm Spitfire, not a 1400mm made by Fliteline ( Motion RC ) and it has been totally modified from control hinges, wheels, electronics including motor.  Original was a four blade prop but mine is now a three blade.  Better balanced with the new motor.

For those interested; flew all my planes ( 9 ) yesterday.  Took me a while to prep my brain to fly the new Spitfire, but I finally did it.  It is the highest price within my budget so far.  Anyway, all went very well after some very minor trimming. Quite different to land as it is my heaviest plane.  Carrying a 5 cell battery doesn't help.  No one there at the time to do a video.  Only took a couple of stills before take off just in case.
