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
Energy Fighting (Rope-A-Dope)
Energy Fighting (Boom-n-Zoom
Defensive Energy Fighting
How to bounce a target
Types of pursuits
Barrel Roll Attack (Lag displacement rolls)
Head on passes #1 Frontal Attack <--- watch this to avoid the constant head on rams in WT
Head on passes #2 Turning Attack
Head on passes #3 Lead Turn
Bombing #1 Stationary Targets
Bombing #2 Moving Targets

Nice videos, I wonder if the guy who made them is still active, it would be nice to have him here.
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...)
Those Guys would give all here around such a hard nut to crack that you would perhaps regret your wish soon
Someone in a position to should offer him an invite
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

Reversing a bounce
Head to head sideslip
Drag and bag
Dicipline and restraint <- NEED MORE OF THIS
Boom and Zoom
Deflection gunnery <- Easier with the leading sight in arcade mode.
