    Jets DLC Official Feedback

    Thanks for the info on key binding. I've got it setup right now, and the percentage showing up helps... wish they'd add that for helos. Another point, though, is wheel brakes. It's too difficult to steer aircraft on the ground, even more so when on the carrier. Independent wheel brakes would help, or at least some way of increasing the angle the nose landing gear will turn. I know that's kinda detailed for the type of game Arma 3 is, but if you've got aircraft you can fly, you should be able to taxi around, too.

    Jets DLC Official Feedback

    Apologies first if I've put this in the wrong place. I'm a bit dumb when it comes to navigating BI's forums. My question is about the Jets DLC as in how controls might be altered. As it stands with Arma 3 right now (unmodded), my Saitek X52 throttle can not have the zero (minimum thrust) set to the farthest back position of the physical throttle. Zero can only be at the mid-point of the throttle range. In other words, when I advance the throttle, it does not read as a positive increase until after I get halfway up towards maximum. Unfortunately, that leaves very little range, and that results in very coarse throttle adjustments. Will the Jets DLC give us a way to reset zero to the bottom of the throttle throw range? Thank you in advance for any help, and again sorry if this post is located poorly. Tim Schuster

    Jets DLC Official Feedback

    So... I'm a bit confused at the moment. I purchased the DLC pack that includes Jets, Orange, Tanks, etc. through the BIS website. Not sure what happens next... I'm assuming that I will receive an email upon release of each pack that will provide me with a code to use in Steam. Is that right? Also, I've upgraded to the Development version of Arma 3, and I can see the new jets, but for some reason they are locked and I cannot board them. When I try it asks me to purchase the DLC. Can someone help clue me in? Thanks in advance for any assistance! Tim

    Aircraft Controls Question

    Beagle, thanks for the quick reply. Now I'm off to see if I can finally finish the helicopter Boot Camp missions! Tim
  6. All, This is my first post, as I am new to Arma2 Free. I'm trying to set up my HOTAS to work with aircraft, but I'm having trouble with yaw controls. Can someone please tell me if: Left Turn Bank Left or Left Pedal controls yaw? I've tried all three with limited success... usually when I do get any rudder control at all it is very minimal; almost like trim tabs instead of actual rudder control. Any help with this, or redirect to the appropriate thread, is greatly appreciated! Tim
