Same here. They can be pretty effective in skilled hands, but they're much easier to take down in this game compared to Battlefield 2.

Yea Im pretty good at controlling them but theyre so slow its like flying a tank. You cant pull off any stationary 180s cause you will be a sitting duck and just get knocked out of the air so instead you just have to fly around in big circles which isnt very satisfying for the pilot

but its very satisfying for the gunner. BTW, i found it MUCH more effective to switch to the passenger seat in the blackhawk and shoot gustavs down at the enemy, rather than use the terribly inaccurate minigun.

Is it possible for the other passenger to toss an ammo pack into the chopper to rearm you?

i was thinking about this too, and I dont think so, but even if you already have launched all 7 or 8 or w/e gustavs, you can hop onto the minigun then, but I can get lots more kills with the gustavs cause the minigun requires you to keep it steady on the target, and it's hard to do that when the chopper is circling around.

Dang the chopper is hard for me to control, what's funny is the tanks have unlimited ammo. Surprised to find the choppers actually have limited ammo.

Or if you want a couple of quick hundred points without aiming with the mini gun, just be an engineer and ride on the passenger seat. Repair the copter when it gets it.
