Short of buying a gamepad, what can I do to improve my control of helicopters using the keyboard in GTA IV - The Ballad of Gay Tony? I am stuck on a mission where I have to blow up a yacht and then chase and take out three moving boats. Whenever I press a key, the movement becomes too much to handle and compensating for it causes me to spiral into a watery death.
I am using the default controls for flying:
- Number pad 4/6 for left and right rotation
- W/S for altitude
- A/D for banking left and right
- Mouse 1 for shooting
I turned off mouse control for helicopters in favor of the keyboard as this would just aggravate my control (or lack of it) when flying.
