I am very good at doing that sort of thing with the Annihilator. I think it is just down to the camera mode you have. I use first-person view when flying. Centre of the screen is your target, and gives you a point when you need to fly around your target. I chased down an Infernus that was driving up and down the Dukes Express way at top speed. Got it before it could use the high buildings in the city as cover. Haha.
Oh, and the kicking thing. If a host decides to remove a player for whatever reason, they should be able to without other player's votes. Would make it much easier to deal with trolls and whatnot for non-modders (if it will be possible in GTA 5).
