    i am using f4u, there are two types of the rack and drag. one is at the center of the body for the 2000 bomb. another is the one for 2X1000 bombs. which one will affect performance less ???

    thanks!

    I've used the F4U2 ( Sorry couldn't help that).

    Depends where the bombs are racked.
    On the wings will effect roll, and if modelled 2 bombs will have more drag as I think the 2K is not 2x the physical size.
    If racked under the fuselage, I don't think there will be much difference.

    I heard that an excessive number of question marks in one's post determines the amount of drag...

    If I recall correctly...the two on either side of the fuselage are always fitted...maybe only on the F4U-1D. Anyways I'd always go with those over the center mount one as those are going to be factored into the drag regardless so once you dump your bombs you're as clean as that version gets. The other one will cause additional drag.
