Just watched the first 15-20 min or so, and yes, nice sortie! I also watched quite a bit of your other VM mission. You appear to me to be a 'natural' in a dogfight. You keep your energy well, have good anticipation in the maneuver, and fly to the strengths of the airplane (last week in the SE5, this week in Tripe). EDIT: the dogfight at the 30 min mark in this video. You should have realized from the start that he saw you at a distance because of the flak trailing you. You should have been climbing from the moment you spotted him. That said, you did well to make him loose his altitude advantage, but he made you turn left and you obliged him, that was a big mistake in the Tripe. Keep turning right even though it means you might loose position in the short term.

Some other constructive critique, though it may seem silly coming from someone who gets shot down as often as as I do... :lol:

Your leading shots need work, you have to get the bullets well out in front to hit a passing target, and even then the math will reveal you would be lucky to land one or two shots. Deflection shots are more to rattle your enemy, make him make a mistake.

Your situational awareness is poor; you aren't spotting the enemy at a distance, which is so important. When you were escorting Mike in the Breguet last video, you kept your eyes on him and rarely looked around, and almost never above you. Watch your video again, you will see. Mike spotted the aircraft to your 6, and that is your job. Every time you look around to a different viewing 'sector' of your visual arc, you should be 'zooming' in. Each time, or nearly so. You have to keep your head on a swivel all-the-time. This is the hardest thing to do. Believe you mentioned you do not have TrackIR, well, all of us have it for a reason. It makes such a huge difference to helping situational awareness. On an airquake server, this is not as important as on our server, which does give a better feel for historical missions. Think about getting a used unit if you can't afford a new one, you will understand once you try it, trust me.

Close the map, don't leave it open. If you aren't using the mini-gauges, close them as well. Map and gauges are only a keystroke away. Start using the cockpit gauges, even better, they are only a glance away. Drag the 'score board' off the monitor edge, or as much as possible. I suspect you have the steam version of RoF. Close the pop-up messaging that your friends are joining 'Second Life'. Do you care if they do? Or are you concentrating on keeping yourself and the people in your flight alive??? All these other things are distractions from your real job of spotting the enemy at a distance before they spot you. This is one thing I try to be the best at (trust me, I do not always succeed :roll: ) but absolutely everyone in your flight appreciates when you can call out the location of a distant aircraft.

And please do keep shooting down J5! :cool:

Thanks for the tips ill keep it in mind.
I am more used to the speeds of WW2 flight sims when it comes to leading targets. So I am still messing with the lead Im supposed to take.
As for the steam popups I keep forgetting to turn them off, so Ill do that right now :).
And about the Tripe thanks for telling me not to turn left its like the 3d time I flew it.

Next Sunday I won't be there so no vid.
I'm looking into using a external HD so I can start recording with fraps instead of using a stream.
A fraps recording of 2+ hours takes up quite some space.
