I have been trying (in the training mission - the first one where ground targets are engaged) to aim from the pilot's seat. I get to the first waypoint, hover, and hit the "I" key to activate whatever mode that's called (the one with the semi- or completely transparent cockpit). After zooming in, I have only EXTREMELY coarse aimining ability - when I move the hat on my joystick, the aim jumps what is probably the equivalent of 20 yards. In other words, I can't aim at a target - I have no fine aiming control. AAAAARRRGH.

Please, please tell me there is a way for the pilot to aim accurately, manually, without help from the gunner.

Thanks,

Andrew

Have you tried holding down the number 2 stick button and trying this? Maybe hold the number 2 button down and move the whole stick instead of the tophat. This may work.

Thanks, I will try that!

Have you been able to do this? Or anything similar?

Ok, just tired it, and yes, if you are piloting and zooming in after pressing "I" till the cockpit disappears, yes the movement of the heli you are still piloting will make precision aiming hard.
I zoomed out at far as possible, and held the stick number 2 button, and was easily able to precision pan and shoot with the cannon.
I rarely if ever use the hatswitch myself. Hope this was helpful. <S>
