    What patch are you flying? It flys pretty nice with the latest patches.

    you just need time to adjust to the P40. The 40 in FB is actually one if not the best modeled P40 I have ever tried. She may not have the best guns but she does fly like she should.

    You have to get really close to the enemy to do damage. Adjust convergence to 200 to get maximum damage at reasonable distance.

    The P40 may also be a little tricky to fly when you're really slow and in some curves. But with some training, P40 can be a deadly weapon. It is by far the best diver from that area.

    P40 is still my favourite, though I usually try to vary planes.

    Remember how easy the P-40 stalled before the patches? I'm thinking this is the problem.

    That's your problem then. You will see a big difference in many planes with the patches. I wouldn't wait for AEP. I did a fresh install of FB to 1.22 to AEP witout a single problem.

    The P-40 is a great plane to fly. You will be pleased.
