    Thanks for the response and the link!
    What are everyone's thoughts on the current asteroid hanger that comes with the cutlass?  Any good, or is it kinda boring like most are now that they are smaller?

    So, I know this discussion is a week or so old, but I think I figured out a plan.  I think I may grab the cutlass now to see what it is like when the rework comes out.  Just a couple of questions about this: Do we know if the rework will come out with 3.0?  I know it is supposed to be soon, but is it supposed to be that soon?  Also, I am thinking of just grabbing the ship straight for $100 instead of upgrading my Avenger as this would give me two ships and a new hanger.  Any advice on this?  Is the VGF hanger any fun now that they are all a bit smaller?  Would having an Avenger and Cutlass be a good mix and/or good spots to upgrade from later?  
    Not really wanting to put too much money into the game yet, so I still may just upgrade the Avenger, but worth thinking about having another ship I suppose...and a hanger.
    Also, is the cutlass any good now? Heard many people complain about it, but I hear people complain about most ships so I was wondering what you all thought.
    Sorry for all the questions, but thanks for the advice!

    Thanks, Yodel, that is a really good idea.  I know that it is more of an outlaw ship, and while I have no interest in playing an outlaw, the general load out of the ship does seem to really fit what I would be interested in.  I can't wait to see the rework of it as well.  If I do upgrade, it may be a good idea to go cutlass first and then I can always upgrade again to freelancer if I like.
    I appreciate the idea!

    I have enjoyed it a good bit any time there was a free fly and I could try it out.  I like the look of it too.
    What do you mean by properly fitted?  Are there guns you recommend buying for it?

    Thanks for the responses!  They help a lot. 
    I am really glad to know that the aiming pip is off.  I couldn't for the life of me figure out how I was so much worse at hitting things than I was before.  The flight model is really not my cup of tea and I figured it would change some eventually, but I was pretty certain I was still just as good at pointing my mouse at things.  Nice to know not every miss was my fault!
    With your talk of other ships like the 300 series, I have thought of possibly upgrading to a freelancer, especially when 3.0 come out to enjoy more of the relaxed exploration and trade.  I can always buy another Avenger or something for not too much cash if I need to dogfight again I suppose.

    Questions about Flying an Avenger
    Hey all,
    I have been thinking about posting this for a while, but didn't want to sound as if I am complaining.  However, I have been having a real hard time with Star Citizen since the new flight model update.  My only ship is an Avenger Titan, which I have previously enjoyed very much.  However, now I seem to barely be able to fight with my ship at all.  I fly with mouse and keyboard, not for any specific reason, but just because I always have (I do have a relatively decent joystick I could use).  Therefore my gimbals are not locked and I can only either shoot with the main chaingun or the two wing mounted guns, not both.  The wing guns have always seemed pretty weak for me, and are hard to use with the mouse.  The chaingun worked well for me previously, but now seems to take forever to kill anything.
    I totally understand that things will continue to change and that I need to spend more time with the new flight mechanics.  Also, my computer is good, but getting old and the game doesn't run great on it either, so I do have some stutter and chugging which can make it hard to dogfight.  However, I just haven't really been able to enjoy the game in a while.
    So I guess what I want to know is: Is this normal?  Are other Avenger users experiencing issues?  Is the flight model a bit off or do I just have to get used to it?  Are their some tactics I can use to do a better job with what I have?  Really not trying to complain, just seeing how much of what I have been experiencing is due to me or due to the game.  I really enjoy Star Citizen and want to play it more, but since this last update I have really been staying away out of frustration.
    Thanks for any suggestions or advice you can give.  It is appreciated!

    I watched a lot of videos too and noticed it was buggy.  I also didn't really like the resource collection part.  Seems like some areas have a lot of resources and others have nothing at all.
    A good one to watch though.  I like the graphics and the general idea.  Maybe it will turn out to be something fun when they add some more too it.

    Yeah, it certainly is a nice looking ship!
    I do think I will eventually get a HOTAS for Star Citizen, but may wait a bit to see how everything ends up.
    One thing I probably do need to do is learn more about COMSTAB and decoupled mode.  That will probably give me more options in fights and things.  I don't even know what COMSTAB does to be honest   I've been enjoying learning dogfighting and things so I'll have to work on those next.

    That is all really interesting.  I still wonder if the SH is the ship for me, but I can definitely see how either going all gimbaled or all fixed weapons would make the sabre a lot more deadly.
    When you use all fixed weapons, do you find that it is easier to use a joystick than the mouse and keyboard?
