Battlefield 3 guide: How to fly a helicopter

Flying helicopters is hard, but crashing them into stuff and scattering molten metal and flesh everywhere is super easy. Unfortunately, entertaining your team with human fireworks doesn't get you any points...and they'll probably yell at you more than clap. If you excitedly dash toward every vacant helicopter in Battlefield 3 but can't quite get the hang of not blowing up, this PC Gamer Protip is for you.

The Basics

    Ugh why do you have an AD FOR EACH VIDEO?!!!!

    I got all the videos to play at the same time, and paused them after the ad stopped.I did this after I saw the first ad had started to play, knowing that it was going to happen to all the videos. It saved me a little time watching ads. =j

    There is only one rule for playing Jets (on PC without pad) USE ONLY KEYBOARD. Keyboard + mouse will kill you.
