What F-16 are you talking about? I'm flying it with keyboard all the time.

Okay, so that should be all right then. Do you have other planes (from fgaddon) to fly with keyboard? How does that go?

A fast fighter jet is really hard to fly with keyboard.

Can use mouse, joystick, yoke or touchpad to fly it with, and that is much easier.

Because of that we decided that the arrow keys could used for moving the radar cursor around. They therefore no longer work to fly with.

If you really want to fly with keyboard, you can still use numpad if you have numlock in the right setting.

Correct. I fly the F-16 with the keyboard all the time, all the controls are on the numeric keypad, just like for the other planes.

That said, I highly suggest you to buy at least a cheap joystick. It will really make an impact and allow you to enjoy high performance jets better :wink:
