I can control the things in the air without bother but is it possible
to make them steer better when on the ground? All the stearing does is
move the flaps but it is hard to get the aircraft to point the right
way in order to take off...

Cheers...

You also need to apply power (forward or back) for movement. Don't
apply full power or you will be in danger of hitting something and
exploding.

So far, all the aircraft that I have flown has had far better control
than anything previous. RS obviously has tuned them well.

I had the same problem until I discovered that the "roll right" and "roll
left" controls don't make the plane turn on the ground. I think the default
turning keys are Q and E. I reconfigured mine so that I can fly using the
num pad. 4 and 6 are left and right, and 8 and 2 are turn left and right.
These are similar to the Vice City helicopter controls, so I feel like I
know where I am with it.

They did a very good job with the planes this time round. I found it
difficult to do the flying school, but once I eventually passed that they
were easy to use. The Dido in GTA3 I could not fly at all.

Turning on the ground needs the rudder (yaw, as someone said.) As the
non-helpful key list doesn't tell you which keys are rudder control I
just zoomed in on the tail and hit stuff until it moved.

Then I forgot until the next time.

OK...Thanks for your replies...I have another question tho...

Is it possible to retract the landing gear on the planes without fixed
gears?

If so...what control is it?

Cheers...

you can retract landing gear on many planes but you'll have to wait
for a pc bod to tell you the keys :o )

On mine I discovered that the + button on the num pad retracted the landing
gear. It might be just me, but I seem to be able to fly a lot higher with
the gear up.

Same on the PS2 version, I can't be certain but I think putting landing
gear up allows you go faster too.
