Although vvs planes now bleed energy better and stall a bit more realisticaly after patch their turn times are still too fast, also luftwaffe ac that should turn don't.

109 f's turn performance in RL 18 seconds in object viewer 19.5 in FB 1.1 20 seconds.

yak 3 in object viewer 18 seconds in fb 1.1 16 seconds how could this be overlooked?

vvs ac already have turn advantage but this is ridiculous...

Need sources and details. As with everything else...credible test data is usually accepted over one persons word or another.

Its easy to overlook something when you have to program the physics of an aircraft...its not a table based engine as I understand it. Climb rates are calculated by the physics engine which take goodness knows how many variables into account. You can't just set the planes climb rate.

Thats how I understand it anyways. Its definately not like someone at Maddox just doesn't go in and proof read a flight data table.

This is true for many planes in 1.1. Turn times are better than in 1.0, but still too quick for some planes. At least now they are mostly close to the correct turn times, whereas before some were off by 5 or more seconds.

It seems with every patch, it gets closer to correct.

over the naca roll charts by alot 180 degree testing, all the planes below do a full 360 quicker then the 180 degree tests

190s
yaks
p39
mig3u
b239
he111
il2s

under the charts

p40
p47



I can imagine all the complaints when the tempest gets here since its roll was far worse then the jug 10 22 and 27.

they should go by the 190s first and get it as accurate to the charts as possible since it was the best rolling prop a/c of the time. then the others will fall into place.
