ok i seem to be always on full power in dogfights rearly going under 90% i know this is not very tecnical and i guess the slower you go the more acute you can turn right? so whats better?? slow with combat flaps or all out speed?

"Speed is life" - that's an old fighter axiom, and for a very good reason.

Speed can be turned into height. And a height advantage can make all the difference.
