    Welcome to the real world RedDeth. In fact, it's not uber enough. The secondary fire button should release the combat flaps and letting up on the button should retract the flaps. THis will increase the turn rate greatly, furthermore, the plane's flaps were designed not to burn off energy to quickly when deployed in a combat position. So the turn rate can be halved, or more, just by adding combat flaps.

    Even Maj. Bong, the highest scoring American ace of the war said, "The only way to kill a Ki-43 is if the pilot ain't lookin."

    YOu do have some things on your side though:

    Speed
    armament
    durability

    Use them to your advantage.
