My plane is so much slower and less manouverable than the others that I am fighting. It does not matter what plane I choose, even on takeoff my flight gets ahead of me, even if I am on WEP? Any suggestions?

I am only guessing, you are flying offline right?
The answer is simple but not very sattisfying: You need to practise. Get to know your plane, learn to trim the control surfaces just right, learn to fly completely smooth so you don't burn off energy, find the right prop-pitch settings for every plane, the right climbing attitude etc. etc. etc.
There is A LOT to learn and still you might not be able to fly as smooth and fast as the AI does (in most planes the AI flies the a/c absolutely optimal with a simplyfied flight model!) I still can't fly as good as the AI, and I've been playing since the demo-version http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/51.gif

AI has simplified flight models thus you can say it cheats.It will always be faster and Yaks can dive over 800kph even if 650 is their braking speed.
I haven`t flown offline for ages but you can try to enable autopilot until you catch up.

Let the plane fly itself. Stop trying to climb.

It really is that simple.

If the AI do not wait for you , just shoot them down maybe next time they'll listen... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
