The very simplest way [probabally] is to use mouse yoke - start a flight and right click on part of the outside view, at the bottom of the menu this brings up you will see 'mouse yoke' click on it to select.

You can now use the wheel as a throttle and mouse movement for direction control. Works well for helicopters and planes.

Thanks SJA ill check out those links.

And eagle I hope it does! I bought a freezer 7 for heatsink, and going to run 3 120mm fans for the case, so if I can run a safe slight overclock I would absolutely like to, I bought a p35 gigabyte mobo. Only problem is I dont know that much about ram and I bought some ddr2-667 corsair ( 2 gb ) and I have read that that is horrible ram for overclocking. That and the e6550 already runs at 1333 fsb stock. Any tips I would greatly appreciate.

To be honest about FPS, I wouldnt like any less than 25-30, and if it means turning down some detail that is fine at 1920. Its a shame the game still doesnt run better at our current performance market ( within reason ).

The game is designed to run in the 20-30fps range. Its not like a shooter where 60fps is expected. Simulations have always been tuned for a lower fps range. I keep mine locked at 22 even though I'm capable of 30+ most of the time.

Default scenery, 16xS supersampling, and extremely dense autogen which is running faster than my frame rate lock of 22.

This is probably the nicest piece of freeware I've seen.

Nice plane and it reminds of me of the game "Red Baron", one of my first PC sims.
