Here are some very well done videos made by a gentle Australian man.

Now keep in mind that a lot of this doesn't really work like it should because of the current FMs making turn rate the only relevant attribute, but they should be helpful to some extent and much more helpful later as the game comes close to completion.

These are for Rise of Flight, a WW1 flight combat sim but the concepts are applicable to WW2. To put it another way, these are flight combat tutorials period, not Rise of Flight tutorials

For sure he is active nowadays, his callsign is "Requiem" when i remember correctly and hes a famous pilot in Rise of Flight, flying with his squadron on the full realism server "Syndicate" at which whole historic air battles will get replayed !!
You should be able to meet him there, but first RoF is good bit harder to master as WT (for unmatched realism and for the fragile planes) and second you have usually to wait out of the gates to join, cuz the maximum number of participants is 64 and its most times full !!
This means, ALL 64 people are participating in the same air battle...

(at least all this was fact, when i flew last time RoF 2 or 3 months ago...)

Someone in a position to should offer him an invite

Those Guys would give all here around such a hard nut to crack that you would perhaps regret your wish soon :fed004:
Whoever tried to get a Fokker Dr.I at least a bit to do what you want her to do and watch those Guys later performing in Dogfights with such beasts, can only acknowledge that this is state of the art of virtual flying :01212:

Nice topic and videos there from a really good sim, but in arcade sadly some of them are useless due to the over-strength of the rudders and arcade settings.

Yes, such as the head on... I find that the easiest way to do a good headon is to zero in on the target, and open fire at 1.5 miles. When i see their tracers i do a hard max displacement barrel roll followed by a hard turn to get on their tail. This is with mouse of course, with joystick, its hopeless to even try a head on.

Ah, silver hotdog. Been a long time since I first saw those, I learned a thing or two about shooting from watching them. Never saw him after I stopped playing on the Ace servers though, wonder if he still plays?

I don't know about the head on pass techniques - from Requim - I think BSH gives a much better simpler and more practical way of doing it..

Great videos. I feel like I instinctively did most of this stuff before I was ever exposed to maneuvers tho. I think common sense plays a big role.
