    so those FW190 stalls in a sec in turns, even in not so tight turns..if that was the case in real WW2 why other planes turns much better in FB without quick stall?

    Just like real life.. high wing loading and little wings.. pretty much means it won't turn very well.

    You have to be smooth and gentle.. turn as little as possible and use your speed to fight with the FW

    I think most people will admit that the sustained turn characteristics (or the lack of same) is at best overdone in Il2/FB but it is a historical fact that the FW had a high stall speed and a nasty habit of spinning. I just think that the FW bleeds off energy too fast as it is now.
    However these problems do not prevent the FW from being an exellent fighter/bomberkiller, it packs a mean wallop of firepower, has great speed rolls like aristochrat-heads during the french revolution.
    In fact: IF the FM was to be changed to allow better stustained turn and less energy loss for the FW we'd have a plane so uber that it couldn't be beat even if the allies got the Joint Strike Fighter!
