  2. I have started to experince it the first time when the P40E was released. In the circuit, while configuring the aircraft for landing, I was running out of elevator trim to balance the need for continuous pull on the stick... Sometimes 100% tail heavy wasn't sufficient. Then came the P51 and the same happens with that model, and finally I noticed somehow the P47 shares the same lack of "enough tail heavy" trimming. I usually set my controllers without "force feedback" in the Game Options but I wonder if it makes a difference, even for those who, like me, don't have an FF
  3. The Fiat has recently been released
  4. SPITFIRE SPEAKS: Spitfire Longitudinal Stability - YouTube
  5. Like gliders ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUWzyqfpJbo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUqTzTkIZeY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KrLKM35ioI Oops, Hoots got me to it 🙂 I honestly miss Active Sky, and they having been left out, until for now, is quite a disappointment 😞 Been a long time beta tester with HiFi, all platforms, and they really do a remarkable job in FSX, P3D and even XP... Unfortunately METAR-based approaches are never going to work that nice with MFS IMO, given the way they will have to merge
  6. MFS, is indeed UNIQUE ! I am still on my 2012 rig, i5 2500, GTX 960 4 GB gpu, 16GB DDR3 RAM, and I can run it, noticing that when I enable photogrammetry and streaming + rolling cache it runs even smoother 😄 I really look forward for the flight dynamics and SDK updates, and the fine tunning of the Meteoblue weather feeds, but so far is the most Astounding flight simulation experience I have had in terms of scenery and weather rendering and effects 🙂
  7. Initially the Spitfires had it wrong, pitching up when flaps deployed, but it was fixed. The Hurricane is still wrong - pitches up when flaps deployed, while it should pitch down, just like the spitfires, for the very same reasons ( aerodynamically ). Yet another of many details that I would love to see addressed sometime ahead - the Spitfire usually cruises with nose heay trim settings, thus implying that we should be able to see the elevator hinges slightly to the up side of the horizontal stab, but they're always perfectly aligned... Things...
  8. Thx for your comment Melonfish ! Could you help me find those evidences in the net? I searched for a while but all I found was this video. Would really like to read / ear that the way it's modelled in IL2 is the right one. I remember the Spitfires were initially released with that pitching up tendency too on flap deployment and latter fixed to agree with reports from true pilots of the type.
  9. Looks more or less evident from the following video that the pilot has to pull when gear and then flaps are lowered during approach... https://youtu.be/h6m7z2HPW34?t=464
  10. @ZachariasX, Il2 109s do model asymmetric slot deployment. One just has to fly it the "right way" to cause it, but it's actually a lot easier to take place than in another combat flightsim that also has a 109 model... OTOH, I recall that when the 109 was first released, not sure if after or before the 190, in the Il2 BoS series, takeoffs were a bit more difficult to manage, including the need for brake application because the rudder was not as effective as it is right now... I find it a bit too easy to takeoff with the 109s in Il2, taking anecdotes I've read, namely bei
  11. Well, I just posted because i thought some might be interested... Personally I was never able to watch any war movie other than the one my father took me to see in the cinema some... 46 yrs ago - "The Bridge on the River Kwai"...
  12. The Full Movie is now available for watching during November, on Youtube.
  13. Welcome back! I am always returning too, after deambulating through other flightsims, mostly civil, but lagging a LOT of the feel IL-2 brings :-) And I am not even in VR ! A simple HeadTracker Pro is all I got...
