This vid was posted in ORR and I thought it was so funny, I'd share it here too. Things like this have happened to me more than I'd care to say...either way, it's still funny.

Very funny video, but having spent most of the last 2-3 years flying mainly Spitfires, this happens the other way just as often. However, I've never seen two in a row collide like that. As long as you've been around, you know this game is very quirky about collisions.

Usually:

1. The faster plane loses a wing on the collision, while the other guy's rudder only gets clipped.

2. Sadly, many of the collisions are tainted by lag and intentional online connection manipulation.

3. I've seen 109s, FWs, P-39s and many others fly away from a collision just the same, some with absolutley no damage.

I hope in BoB we get better collision modeling. In a case like that, both should go down from the initial collision. A plane that flies away from a collision undamaged is a bit of a joke.

Actually, that was him in the 109 (his fav ride), testing out ATA 4.0 for the upcoming add-on.

Here's me clipping some Spit's wings in my 109.

Didn't work out so well for me but in this instance the Spits got clipped too.

you can be the slower guy , the faster guy , the higher guy , the lower guy , the guy who isnt shooting , the guy who is shooting , the flying straight guy , the jinking guy , & the you-name-it-whatever-else guy
& STILL LOSE THE COLLISION !!!!

FB has no set rules to this unbelieveably infuriating part of the game

Rgrt! Too many times I had my wings cut off by rammer, who flew into my plane from behind, i.e. HE was faster and left the crash unharmed.

FB Literal Geek Police Alert!!1!!11

No one stated it was a stead-fast rule about collisions. I stated usually it's the faster guy. Which, from my experience, has been the case, usually. I shall ensure to preface my opinions accordingly from hence forth, so as not to confuse you.

It's one of the more stupid aspects of this game, like engines still creating torque effect when they are OFF in the air. But, it's the best game out there and fun, fun, fun.

I was whacked by a 109 flying. My P-40 disintigrated and the 109 flew on to shoot me down again after I got another plane up in the air. I went on home with my head hung low. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif
