Its hard to get used to, but its really easy. Get a good run at the jump and let off of the gas at the base (bottom) of the jump. 9 out of 10 times it will fly perfect. I used to try to let off at the top of the jump and the car would get out of shape in the air. cars fly better when the engine is idling, so try not to touch the gas after you let off at the base of a jump. Of course if you have to, tap the brakes to get the nose down or gas it to bring the nose up.

mate, you must have small jumps or long run-ups, every jumps is different, some need throttle right to the top if you want to get to the next jump and some you do lift off for a lower flight more nose down.

controling the car in the air is important to learn so you get a good controled landing, like the guys said watch the pros and you'll learn a lot.
