You're going to want to determine what flight model you like best for flying. To learn details of dodging in each Flight Mode, read How To Dodge

Normal Flight ModelEdit

The game limits you a good deal in this Flight Mode. The advantage to that is it's hard to get disoriented or motion sick with this Flight Mode. A disadvantage of this mode is that methods for dodging are pretty limited. Also, as enemies twirl all around you, you can't easily track them, since your maneuvering is limited, unlike Advanced Flight mode. You can see a description of the controls in the article on Normal Flight.

  • Fly straight up/down: You can't fly straight up/down (but you can fly nearly straight up/down)
  • Up/down Loops: You have extremely limited looping abilities. You can do a pre-scripted "canned" half-loop (see dodging below)
  • Upside-down: You can't fly upside-down
  • Target reticule: Fixed in place
  • Dodging: The only way to dodge missiles is to use the pre-scripted "canned" dodges (which by default are activated by pressing X and moving the left thumbstick). There is also chaff (R3), but that isn't "dodging".

Classic Arcade FlightEdit

(this is similar to the old "Normal Flight" mode of Warhawk)

The game limits you somewhat in this Flight Mode, but not as limited as Starhawk's Normal Flight model. With this mode it's hard to get disoriented or motion sick. A disadvantage of this mode is as enemies twirl all around you, you can't easily track them, since your maneuvering is limited, unlike Advanced Flight mode. You can see a description of the controls in the article on Classic Arcade Flight.

  • Fly straight up/down: You CAN fly straight up/down
  • Up/down Loops: You have some ability to do looping (using the right thumbstick), but you don't have complete control.
  • Upside-down: You can't fly upside-down
  • Target reticule: Moveable
  • Dodging: You have 2 ways to dodge missiles. You can use the pre-scripted "canned" dodges just like Normal Flight, or you can use "organic" dodges (just manipulating your thumbsticks to accomplish your own dodge). There is also chaff (R3), but that isn't "dodging".

Advanced FlightEdit

(this is similar to the old "Pro Flight" mode of Warhawk)

You can do anything you want in this Flight Mode, the game doesn't limit you at all. Using this mode, it can be easier to track enemies when you're on the attack.

  • Fly straight up/down: You have complete control, you can do anything you want
  • Up/down Loops: You have complete control, you can do anything you want
  • Upside-down: You have complete control, you can do anything you want
  • Target reticule: Fixed in place
  • Dodging: You have 2 ways to dodge missiles. You can use the pre-scripted "canned" dodges just like Normal Flight, or you can use "organic" dodges (just manipulating your thumbsticks to accomplish your own dodge). There is also chaff (R3), but that isn't "dodging".
