I was flying the new helicopter, the Tiger I think it's called, and when I was taking of or coming in for a landing it would sometimes flip and crash. Anyone else have this problem, is it that I am using a keyboard and not a joystick.

No. Its not you. EA screwed up the handling of it, especially when near the ground.

same problem. you have to take off before you can turn otherwise you crash.

The Tiger also has a bad habit of nosing down into the ground.

Nose down too much, you'll be hard pressed to pull out of the dive.

You can turn on the ground but you really have balance the opposite direction with your mouse or it is flip city.

I had the rollover problem happen last night, good thing I was at ~100m and managed to eject and open my chute. Too bad I was in the middle of the map, no where near a vehicle, so I offed myself rather than walk since we were waiting for more people to join.

Looks like the Euro Fighter is haveing the same problem.

The eurotrash fighter in the game sucks balls.

Plus it's got a fat belly of a pregnant bitch, coming in for a landing or trying to clear objects I sometimes smack the belly of the jet all over the ground when other jets I clear perfectly fine.


The new helicopter isn't too terrible, I just have to remember to pull up much sooner when angling down for an attack run.
