I have made some tests of some airplanes.
I started at 2000 m at 270km/h and turned the engine of, corrected the yaw and tried to hold course and to keep the speed at 200km/h.
Time of flight is how long the plane stayed airborne.
Prop pitch automatic no flaps, no gear 75% fuel.
The planes altmeter stood at 50 m when the planes ditched.

Plane time of flight
FW190 A5 (43) 3.50
P39 (42) 4.40
Lagg3 (43) 4.50
La7 (44) 4.00
I-16 (39) 3.07
Me109F2 3.50
Yak9 (42) 4.01
P40E 6.14

200 km/h is 3,333.. km/minute
For the P40 it gives 6,14x3,3333 gives 20.46666 km which means that the P40 gives 10 m distance for every meter it looses in hight. Is that bad or good? It´s certainly better than all other planes.
It is worth notion that the ME and FW got the same time in the air, as the FW wriggled wery much.

I have heard that the Maddoxteam have made lots of efforths in getting the flightmodels right, so it should perhaps be like this.

Zug, this looks ~very~ interesting. Wow that P~40 sticks out there. Thanks for spending time on this.

-- you sure you turned engine off for P~40 test? Just in case. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Positive lex but the engine sounds so nice it was hard not to turn it on again.
