The AI in its current shape has a bit of a problem with front-corner awareness, that's probably what you've been experiencing. Side-by-side you're fine, but move into a 45 degree cone, and the AI occasionally decides you no longer exists. It's (AFAIK) being worked on, and once you're aware of the problem, it's relatively easy to avoid. Oh, and for those who use CC for a spotter, might I suggest taking a look at the Otter HUD? It doesn't have a spotter, but it does bring a radar (not unlike ACs HeliCorsa app). Brilliant little thing, and I've stopped using CC atogether since I was only really interested in the spotter.
