So, I have decided to buy the Langley. I have found a few YT videos, but so far are not overly helpful, maybe found the wrong ones, dunno.

1. Is there any way to increase how many flights I can launch? 1/1/1 is rather...annoying

2. How do I manually control the air wings? So far, I have found out the basics of clicking on targets and that's it.

Any other general advice, tips, tricks, keyboard shortcuts, etc would be helpful.

Until you get to tier 6 CV's are gimped but I would highly recommend watching Farazelleth's videos on youtube. very, very in depth and educational. Might be overwhelming especially since you are on the Langley, but you can still learn and practice.

The YT vids I have found were mostly discussing multiple air wing tactics, kinda hard when you get one, but thanks.

The number of squadrons you get increases as you go up in tier, but USN doesn't get as many squadrons as IJN. USN won't get another squadron until tier 7, and then again at tier 9 and t10. Ijn gets more squadrons at t5, 6, 7, 9, and 10.

That sounds a little...unbalanced

USN squads are equal to 1.5 IJN squads, so plane numbers are actually pretty well balanced between tiers considering.

Well, IJN squadrons are smaller and each torpedo/bomb deals less damage. But yes, more, weaker squadrons tend to be better than fewer, stronger squadrons.

Use Alt mouse controls.

Left click+drag equals multi squad selection in the box you make. 

Use the mipmap.

Don't think low tiers are an indicator of high tiers.

Learn to strafe fast and get good at it, Lex/Ranger have a powerful strafe, that is their one advantage over shoukaku/hiryu. 

Learn to micro.

Be close enough to the enemy that your BBs are concerned, but not too close, that way your re-arm on the planes is greatly reduced.
