  1. Something else: once you pick a place to land, don’t change it. If you are too high, slip, skid, or s curve, etc. Never turn away from where you intend to land, though.
  2. The faster you go, the greater the descent rate. Find out what the best l/d (slowest rate of descent for fastest forward speed) for what you are flying. The rest of the above advice is also good.
  3. In the one with the Sturmovik, why were the prop blades bent before it hit the ground?
  4. I guess it wasn’t “glaring” enough for me to see it. What was the “inconsistancy” about the Kurfürst?
  5. I didn’t criticize the video, I critiisized the background music. I would much rather hear the aircraft sounds. My preference is has good as anyone else’s, and I have a right to voice it. I mentioned the wings because none fell off, as so often happens in BOX. E69 seems to have less trouble with my critique then the rest of you. But you, too, have a right to voice your opinion I salute E69 in return for his response.
  6. Stupid music, has nothing to do with the action. CLOD TWC is how a flight sim should be. And, no wings fell off!!!
  7. In the first vid, the 109 was out turning the A-20, and would have continued to do so, until the 109 decided to change direction. In the second vid, the 109 lost the radiator, which is a 109 weakness. And then, of course a wing came off, as is usual in BOX.
  8. This is a bomber, not a fighter, he said. No steep turns, beware of accelerated stalls, wings get over stressed.
  9. I have seen the same show. I have a book about Bodenplatte that is like an encyclopedia of what happened. Not that I don’t think the FW-190 incident happened, but that book doesn’t mention it. It may be because it was written by Europeans who didn’t interview that particular American pilot. “Bodenplatte” by John Manrho and Ron Putz
  10. If I were to use only my own flights, I would have a far smaller data set to refer to. So, in reality, your observation of my observation is the one that is flawed.
  11. Disclaimer: I was flying against an AI A-20 in quick missions. I was in a G14. Not once, in 6 tries, was I ever on the defensive. So, I never had to try climbing away from him. I stayed out of range until I was ready to move in on him. I had no trouble out maneuvering him. There might have been a different outcome, if I was up against a live pilot. But, I might be better than him. Outcome, I would have no second thoughts about going up against an A-20 in Multiplayer. For me, the A-20 Monster is just a myth. Chuck Yeager: "Its the man, not the machine."
  12. You have a good point. I still think the number of incidents in BOX is too high, though. Either way, it’s not a big deal, just an observation.
  13. I’ve watched a lot of vids of BOX, and can’t believe how often a wing comes off of a plane that’s been shot up. Does anyone else think it is overdone? Real gun camera films don’t seem to show so many.
  14. Maybe you have seen this. But, Google A-20 crash, and then images. There are four amazing shots of an A-20.
  15. You are right, he didn’t hit you once, but his buddy sure did. Maybe Boom and Zoom is the way to handle the A-20. All of these vids are turning fights.
