as much as i am disapointed with the new "boosted" jug i must say after playing around with the p-51d in 4.02m im thrilled so far. finaly acts like it has a pair. ecellaration seems to be much improved as does E retention. wing snap is still there but is a little reduced at least from what i can tell so far. its turn rate down low has been reduced but its high alt turning prowise seems to be improved. dive rate is still fubar but thats across the bord http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif . it MAY all just be in my head but it sure feels like it has alot more pep. has any one else noticed this. i think its even faster on the deck than the 38 late.

If you want some interesting info on the danger in flying a P-51 check this out:


My wifes uncle (80 sqn. RAAF) disappeared off Labuan in a P-51 high altitude test in Sept. 45. They were replacing the P-40's the sqn. had been using. Perhaps this is what happened.......

Now that is interesting.. and yes the P-51 is the best it has ever been. When we first got it it was too fast.... then it was neutered..... I hope that it stays like it is now. You still have to watch yourself with it but it is a contender.
