Flying Helicopters on multiplayer - how do you make it go forward?

I don't know why they've done it but like BFBC1 it is easy to fly the helicopter in campaign but the controls all change for multiplayer, seem totally illogical and I like many others manage to make the blessed thing take off and then, the only gear seems to be reverse and I back it into a mountain. Epic fail. - you have to laugh.

Until I can locate the instruction manual, which the cat must have shredded, can anyone explain to me how you make the wretched thing go forward
or can someone explain the basic controls for flying a helicopter in multiplayer?

Regards
Simon

Yeah my advice... practice in a private match first. Much easier, and you'll cop a lot less abuse

There isn't really a trick to it, Right Trigger is up, Left Trigger down, Right stick for rolling control, and left stick for Yaw (left and right movement).

If your finding it tough, you can always change to controls to what they were in BC1, just muck around in a private match, and you'll learn quick

Thanks for that. Must be because I'm left handed or am so use to pressing left stick to move vehicles or my character forward in other games.

I will go and have another go and try not to wipe the smiles off Mount Rushmore anymore.

I couldn't get the hang of flying helicopters in Bad Company and I still can't do it in this.

Flying helicopters in this game seems slightly "harder" but once you know how it's a lot easier to strafe with a helicopter, allowing your one or two gunners to keep a constant stream of fire on enemy bases.

just use the right stick to move the chopper forwards for forwards back for back left and right for left and right best to clime high then nose dive for a good bit off speed then it a matter off pulling back before you crash then off you go

Right stick foward, c'mon man!

Or at least change the controls to BFBC1's.
