I apologize if this is in the wrong section, or wrong whatever, but I'm new to BF3, and am having a hard time controlling all the vehicles. I tried to change the control layout, but you can't even change it to your liking, you can only change it to one or two other options. Jeeps and tanks, I'm what getting used to, but it's the helicopters and jets I'm havingthe most problems with, mainly because for me, the right stick is reversed (up is down, and down is up). Can I [please] get some advice for better learning how to control the vehicles? I wish there was a way to create a pivate match and practice, or at least get on a somewhat empty server and try
[Edit] Forgot to add, this is on the PS3..
Go to your settings and change your stick controls. From the sound of it, you have Helicopter and Jet sticks set to inverted. You sound like you want normal sticks. ••••Zealot_Guy(talk|blog) 13:58, July 29, 2012 (UTC)
Per Zealot. Also, a tip for practice is go to sever browser, then set the filter to, for example, Caspian Border, and then search an empty server, there you can practice with every type of vehicle, except for boats, but these are similar to control as a jeep. Hope it helped. Soapy MacPrice (talk) 15:47, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
This is a great tip. Better yet, find a friend and both log onto the same server on opposite sides. Then you can practice not only controlling the vehicles but fighting tactics against each other as well. For instance, just flying around in a jet is nice, but until you start having someone on your tail in a dogfight, you won't really learn what tactics you need in battle.
