Oleg you introduced the open canopy to the game but you forgot one thing: it is part of the plane and has to use the same aerodynamic rules.
As the game is now you can dive from 10000m straight down, open and close the canopy all the way down, watching more aerodynamic parts (wings, rudder, elevators) being ripped off the plane as the speed increases.
It would not be a big problem if it wasn't a visibility issue. You can get read of blind spots in some planes just by opening the canopy. You can do it at any speed with no problem.
Can you please fix it.

You are absolutely right. I haven't try that out 'cause I feared http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif. I have flown on 11,250m in Haybusa Ia but did not open canopy..http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But if the different handling does not appear in some of the future patches, I suppose this will be o.k. also. It's much better with pit off function as it is than without it.

Some change in cockpit noise would also be cool when the canopy is open. I thought I read that there was some noise added to the Corsair maybe, but if there is I don't think its loud enough.
