Long time WoT player. Just trying to get into this game. 

I only know how to fly using keyboard. Can't use the mouse, just can't.


Is there a way to have the camera just follow the direction the plane is going?  Like if I turn left on my keyboard it just looks wherever my nose is pointed?

I find it very frustrating that I have to move the plane AND move the mouse just to look at where I am going!


Thanks all.

OP, there is not, the camera will orient towards "up" or away from gravity.  This has caused my planes to act funny in a steep dive more than once (with bad results).  IMHO it takes too long for the camera to rotate around and I agree that there needs to be an option to have the camera orient to the plane (which would make the artificial horizon much more useful).

Keep your head on the swivel.

welcome and keep trying!         no need to buy a joystick just yet... just keep trying with the mouse and kb combination together 


if you're available mon-fri during the late morning / early afternoon hours EST, i will volunteer to flight up using headsets to help you get the basics down


just search for my name in-game and pm me


if you fly at other hours, perhaps others will volunteer during those times?
