Just thought I'd drop a post with my thoughts on using only motion controls, I decided to see how far I could get using only the motion controls and no pilot assist and as yet haven't actually played at all using the sticks (I do use the dpad for barrel rolls however). I found it very difficult at first and it took me a while to tweak the sensitivity to my liking but I'm now only 4 gold medals away from completing the campaign on normal. From watching my friends play using the analogue sticks I notice that I use the air brakes in a very different manner to them, constantly applying tiny adjustments to one or the other instead of just using them as a cornering aid.
