Am I doing something wrong? For me it flies like a hurtin Bf110, in speed and turin. My quick missions often end in disaster battling other twin engine type fighters.

Yeah I know I am a bad pilot, just wanted to compare notes.

Pretty plane still.

I find it to really really fast, especially for a 1942 vintage plane!
That seems to come at a cost, it seems less than agile.
But then very few twins really are.

The mossie is not a fighter, its a bomber with great speed, its made out of wood, and the armour on it is werry close to nothing...

Its fast, not agile not ment to be agile, just fast

I realize the plywood type construction, I just cant seem to get good speed even without turnin, maybe my trim is wacky?

If you didn't know it already, there is a DM bug where the strike zone for your right engine extends a significant distance above the top of the engine.

Really fast, heavily armed with fuselage mounted weapons and a terrific diver!

I have better luck (and yes - for me it's all about luck) in the 110.

Also, while I was looking at the 'invisible hitbox (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/4501099904/p/4)' business, I noticed that - when shooting the magic hitbox (with MGs on the I16 only), and ONLY hitting the invisible bit - the Mosquito would be fine until it completely exploded. Total 'hit in the bomb bay carrying the 4x2000lb bomb style'.

When that's fixed (co-incident with the Pe-2 addon?) it's supposed to be sorted out.

On the contrary, for a light bomber its pretty agile.
