I flew the BF 110 online tonight. My right engine was smoked by a P38 and I had to shut it down and feather prop. The problem is that it flew just as well with only one engine. There was absolutely no induced yaw from flying on one engine and I could fly 450 m/s straight and level.

The same happens to other twin-engined a/c.
No drag and no apparent loss of speed. I guess it has something to do with the game-engine not being made for multi-engine a/c.

However, my BF110 got considerably slower and never surpassed speeds exceeding 350....

You get yawing forces on the TB3 with engines
missing - I had to try to land one with no
rudder and two engines out once and had to
try to roll to keep a straight course to the
base (I was too low to bail when the engines
were lost, as the remaining two were
insufficient to gain height to bail).
Amazingly I actually managed to get it down
in one piece (due to the TB3 being able to
fly at such a low speed) but I landed at
a crazy angle on the runway, and due to
lack of ability to exert any useful turning
force, and the lack of brakes on the TB3, the
plane trundled up a hill, rolled back, tripped
on its tail and then blew up!
