    Well, if you are taking off, on the runway you may notice that the AI has their flaps down in a takeoff position. The default "V", and "F" keys only allow you to have landing flaps in the Spit . . . as it was in real life. Since I play offline as much as online (I don't have flaps on a slider . . . Man, we may actually get RBJ back here over this one . . . ) the ai should be as handicapped as I am. Until my pixel pilots are restricted as I am, I wion't sweat it.

    Yes, I understand what this means for online play. I consider this an "exploit", not a cheat. There is a DIFFERENCE. Remember the Linda Blair view that the TIR users enjoyed at one time? I agree that this should be changed, but I still cannot consider this a "cheat".

    Also, I know that the AI flight model seems to behave independently of the visuals, it is just an aesthetic thing for me, really.

    I'm interested to see how this poll goes. I predict a couple of pages . . . at the very least. LOL

    This topic is likely to start an awful lot of bleating...
