I can't hit a damned thing so it makes no difference.  :old:

Yes you are definitely below average. Have you tried the tings I suggested above? It helped me a lot, I went from under a 2 percent kills hit percentage to being able to keep it near 5%

If you want Ill look at a couple of your films and try to figure it out with you. let me know.

My hit % suffered when AH3 came along. Hit sprites and ammo trails were changed up a bit; just enough to defeat accuracy for an old guy with bad eyes. I don't normally film much but I'll give your suggestions a try and start filming. I have knee joint replacement surgery coming up next week so it may be a bit before I get back to you.

Oh...my use of rudder peds is sporadic due to my bad knees (both bone on bone) so I'm missing that element as well.

I was searching through bbs (could be easier ahem) and found some good stuff on a couple planes but wanted to get a recent synopsis. I have been playing long enough (decades) to be a purty good flyer and a constant annoyance on your six but lucky for you I shoot for sheeeeet. So seeing as I shoot like Mr. Magoo I was hoping to get a few specific convergence settings from the masters.  :old:

If in a fighter I spend most of my time in attack but am always trying to improve as a fighter pilot. Here is what I fly mostly and your preferred convergence for them in fighter mode is appreciated. Especially if you stagger and why or why not too. :airplane:

FW-190A8 (30ís if Iím porking, 20ís if Iím a fighter)
P-47N,M,D
P-51D eny dependent
Bf-110G
Typhoon

Planes I am starting to dabble inÖ
BF-109G (usually get whacked by one of these and want to know why?)
TA-152
NIK
F4Uís
F6-F

On a side note and realizing all of this is personal preferenceÖ what angle/distance do you have your rudder pedals from your chair?
One thing I didnt see, as for suggestions....GUNSIGHTS!!!!  I have the SAME in almost all my planes. With My both of my goto choices...only 2 planes I can remember off hand, have odd behavior with my CHOSENS?  BF-110 and N1K2. The difference is more noticeable in Rocket and Bomb release points.  Yes...the ballistics of the Cannon feel off as well...a given for .30mm and especially the N1K2's .20mms. Just something to consider :aok

I use a simple dot o' death - less clutter for me.

I also noticed the other day you were trying to take out a VH from a fast low angle (and didn't.)  I notice you're new to AH? (welcome) If you struggle with dive bombing and want some pointers about it or flying in general, you're welcome to tag along or join my plane for a few sorties.   Most American rides can take out VH, radar and ammo bunkers (2x) with a full loadout.

I'm always right, it just takes some poepl longer to come to that realization than others.

Thanks definitely not new. I must have just missed. Porking bases in 190ís and vhs/barracks with 110ís or 47s is my fave thing to do. Recently I have been zooming 110s to bases to take out barracks for stopping my base takes.

Ha itís nice to be recognized!  :salute

Last night I took a 110 three sectors at 30ft to take out vh82. Snuck by a cv and two circling planes lol! I bet I took out 15 vhís last night. It was a rare midweek good night in the MA. Come on over to the rooks and join the party!

Umm I think thanks!  :grin:

My dives are successful much more than they are not. If itís a field full of people I try to make the jug as small as possible to get it all in. Lately Iíve been trying to find more fun and creative ways to take them out in smaller planes. I can do it with a 190A8 but itís a few passes sometimes. Lately Iíve been sneaking 110ís to mess up the place lol.

Iím debating the vr myself.

See ya out there!  :salute :airplane:
