Well, you have to had quickly towards your destination. It's like any game like this. Once they get too far, you lose them. Just quickly follow them. I hope this helps. ;)

I don't really understand why so many people are finding this mission difficult, but anyway.

Basically, to speed up your chopper, I found that leaning the left analog stick forward a tad, will speed up the chopper, watch the radar, for when you goes in between building, and take your 'foot off the pedal' when turning, and I think it was better when using RB to turn also.

Once you get out into the open, with the water, you have to maintain an altitude, so like RT to go higher, LT to go lower, until the symbol on the radar doesn't have a arrow on the blue(or red) marker. Jacob will automatically shoot, and you drop him off to pass the mission. Hope this helps.

I did it first try, lol.

The chopper will speed up if you put the left stick forward a bit.

Us RBN and LB to turn quickly.

Its stupid because he only takes one shot and thats when you get right near land and it never hits, damn this is literally impossible

Guest answered: Added 14th Mar 2013, ID #576770

(PS3) Hold R2 and tap L stick repeatedly forward to quickly head towards other chopper, fly ABOVE it when going through city buildings, and then when you get out over the water- Jacob shoots ACROSS your chopper aiming to your left. So keep the other chopper on the LEFT side of yours/ stay to the RIGHT of the enemy chopper and just try to fly as close as possible and about the same altitude (adjusting L2 to go down and R2 to go up) and Jacob will fire at it until he hits it.

I thought this one was impossible too until I realized Jacob was shooting across the chopper so I had been lining him up with the enemy chopper on the wrong side/my passenger side bc I was assuming he would shoot out his side towards the right. My first attempt flying to the right side of the enemy he nailed it.

Guest answered: Added 30th Apr 2013, ID #585364

If you don't get it the first time you have to turn the game off and restart, I tried 30 times and he would oinly fire once so I turned it off and turned it back on and it worked like a charm
