    Must be something fundamental if your on easy.

    1. Put the thrust sensativity to 10%, that way your at full throttle without needing to hammer down the button
    2. Apart from only a few specific corners on phantom you never need to stop accelerating. Your not driving a car so always use the air brakes to brake rather than simply slowing down for corners.


    Not trying to sound patronising mate, just must be something simple. Let us know if you still have problems.

    This is interesting, what corners are you talking about here Haydn?

    Sorry for going totally off-topic mate, just search some through the forum, you will have answers to many questions

    Are you sure you've set it to Novice? At the campaign event selection if you keep pressing square it will change between Novice, Skilled, and Elite.

    A friend to me who also recently downloaded the game had advanced further than me which made me even more mad.

    I asked him what he done, and he said he done nothing in the settings so I just resetted everything to standard.

    Did some races at campaign and all of a sudden I am getting points

    I never stop accelerating except for momentarily firing weapons !


    I use the air-brakes and the left analogue stick all the time for steering!

    Put the inside crease of the bendy bit of your thumb on the throttle, then you can rest the tip of your thumb on the fire button (default controller layout) and fire weapons whenever you like without having to come off the throttle. That will defo be losing you a little speed each time having to come off to fire.

    Of course, that may be easier for me as I have hitchhikers thumbs (they can bend backwards in the middle) so my advice may not be 100% feasible
