I am a complete clown at flying helicopters in Arma

Will a joystick make a real difference or should i stick to my crayons?
I tried the same mission ten times and the ground killed me at least nine times more than the enemy did.

Still, doesn't help one when one's gunner can't be arsed to shoot cannons and rockets at perfectly locked on targets.

I found it extremely difficult to fly in Arma without the joystick although some people seem to master it using the mouse alone.

I use a joystick and TrackIR and it's fantastic, if you can get hold of one then I would recommend it and if you can get hold hold of a cheap TrackIR then grab that as well you won't be disappointed.

I've messed about with full throttle/cyclic/rudder/motorised wiggy seat combos for flying choppers in VBS2 (which is just Arma on 'roids) and still managed to crash the feckers.
PM Stab23- he seems to know every-f*cking-thing about aviation.
