"cheating detected" I'm kinda new, so I've seen it time to time on servers. What is the cheat? Meaning..what are the cheaters able to exploit? Do servers allways find them, and are they booted when they do? Will the real patch solve this?
Cheers

The message "Cheating has been detected" means the server has detected lost packets or a sudden and dramatic change in ping for one of the players. It's rarely true cheating, usually being caused by a poor internet connection or low performance PC at the user end.

While not actually cheating in most cases, these things can detract from the enjoyment for other players as the plane flown by the player causing the message will fly erratically and not in a realistic fashion. Most servers use the built in autokick options to limit the effect of this sort of connection problem.

For the most part you can just ignore this message unless you're the one getting autokicked. If it's you, you may need to choose a server closer to home (lower ping) or look at tweaking your computer & internet connection to get a more stable network connection happening.
