Playing FB merged with PF I noticed a few irregularities with the latest patch.

I was flying a mission(over smolensk) in an I-16 and was using autopilot to get to my flight(far away from me) and abruptly, the autopilot put the plane into a straight down dive and rolled until it hit the ground after flying perfectly straight. I know the AI has trouble with mountains, but this was over flat land.

Also flying a campaign mission over new guinea, I noticed a few problems with the P-40E. pre 3.02bm it flew perfectly normal. I was in a dogfight and turning very gently and with combat flaps on, the plane suddenly went into an uncontrollable, unrecoverable spin. after reflying the mission several times(with the same thing happening) I tried turning with enemies without the combat flaps and under the similar conditions (180-230 mph, about ~600 feet and a fairly gentle turn at around a 30 degree angle rolled to the left or right) the plane turned much better without coming close to a stall. I also noticed a much faster energy gain and loss in the same plane. Could this please be looked into for the final patch release?

Instead of posting it here you should email this to the PF@1C.ru as is stated in the patch Readme file.

The latest patch is a public beta patch.
