You'd be far more useful on the ground. It's a shame that the jets are so damn fun though .
Rocket pods are really affective against tanks, the machine gun is really only for other jets and helicopters

Got my kill last night on Wake & I think it was my 2nd or 3rd attempt flying these things. Definitely helped to read a bit here & other places and study the control layout beforehand.

There must have been some other jet newbs on the other side, as I was actually semi-competent in a dogfight-- was able to maneuver behind a guy but saw him get taken out by a missile right as I had my shot lined up. His buddy decided to try & fly right at me and a lucky blast from my cannon was enough to take him down as he passed. Had some valuable time after that to fly around & gain more familiarity with the controls. Finally got shot down when I flew too low near mobile AA.

Would have been nice to unlock flares, but the kill helped eliminate that sense of hopelessness. Now if the stars would just line up and I can get another kill and string that together with the other two Complete Warrior requirements, I'll be over the hump.

Which one are you taking? If it's the one that's right at the edge, facing the main map, then use LT to hover up and once you're at a decent altitude hit RT to begin accelerating.
The F-35 is a VTOL aircraft. That stands for vertical take-off and landing aircraft.

As for getting kills with the thing, that's another story. It's a crap jet in comparison to the counter-parts on the map. Far too sluggish and lazy for my liking.

No offense but nobody worth a damn will ever use missiles. Likely what locks onto is stingers, which if you know how to evade properly you don't even need them. I use extinguishers, on service star 9 or about to be, and heatseekers when I feel like messing around with kids in jets. That or just the attempted lock on will make them break and so much easier to kill.

Also I think I have like 45 F-35 kills?

Edit: 890 Jet kills total, 60 with the F-35 and 90 minutes in it. 1hr and 32 minutes to be exact. I'd say that's a pretty good KPM.

I just booped a guy with my F35 for a kill

He was swimming in the water and I roadkilled him like a baws.

Funny, I managed to take off in the F-35 on my first try. Still haven't managed to kill anything with it though; usually get shot down within the next few minutes. i really hate jets anyway, the damn screen keeps shaking all the time.

I got my kill with this one in the most embarrasing way possible. I was laughing my ass off all the way through. I was flying and then it started going really slow and didn't obey my controls at all. So I landed in a beach. I "drove" it forward to an enemy base that was just a few meters away and there I saw a dude and was like damn now I get this kill, and I did I was just laughing because there were others around there as well, running away like crazy. Even tho my guns were aiming in a direction where it's not possible to shoot you Guess you don't think of such things when a jet surprices you from around the corner. But now I got the kill yay!

I can't fly for shit in this game. I wish there was a flight simulator mode where you can practice flying so you can learn what the hell you're doing.

You could just join an empty server and figure it out... BF3 is no flight sim and jets are the easiest aircraft in the game to learn. You'll figure it out.

Neither can I, if you have End Game VIZIONZ, Air Superiority lets you get a handle on them pretty good too. Not the F35 specifically, not sure which jets are used in that mode, Flanker and Hornet?

But I've gone from a scant 5 to 36 kills on the Maverick assignment pretty quick and am a lot more confident in them now. No more crashing into the ground after 30 seconds
