GTA-SA PC V2.
I am having real problems trying to learn to fly properly. As far as I can tell there is no control over acceleration other than holding
the "W" key down. That seems to be maximum power. Unfortunately it is not enough. In the screen shot here I am attempting to
take off and hit the Red Corona but can't get to that altitude. I am following the prompts to hit the "Num3" key when the tail begins
to raise and I am holding the "W" key down to accelerate down the runway. If I continually tap on the "Num3" key I do gradually increase
altitude but I can never reach the altitude of the Red Corona. My engine just gets weaker and weaker and I can not find a way to
increase power/acceleration as the "W" key is already at maximum. The landing gear do not raise when I hit the "Num2" key so I am
assuming this model aircraft does not have retractable landing gear. Overall the main problem is a lack of acceleration power. The "S" key
does reduce power and slow the plane down, but the "W" key just has one level of power. Is that normal? What am I doing wrong?
I can not seem to figure out how to taxi the aircraft on the ground. It seems to have only two directions, forward and backward. I can't
make it turn right or left in order to taxi to the end of the runway and position it for takeoff. I can only head out of the hanger and reverse
back into the hanger. Of course if I ever do figure out how to taxi the plane into takeoff position I will be right back to question #1.
I have managed to get the flight simulator/training plane up and fly around over the area but there is always a problem with a seeming
lack of control over acceleration. Just one speed: "W" key held down.
Would someone please give me some tips on flying and tell me why I don't have enough power to reach the Red Corona in the "Take-off, Cirlce
the field and Land" training exercise.
Here is my maximum altitude in this screen shot:
