Calculated with a simple stopwatch after that i've recorded with Fraps (hello the experts, the objective is not to be 100% accurate here but to have a not-too-bad idea, nothing else).
I tested the La-5 too but it's useless to add it in the chart since his roll rate is really close (if not the same) to that of LaGG-3. Same story for Bf 109G-2.
Fw 190 was tested w/o outboard cannons
Now let's talk seriously... Does anyone here has data to share about Bf 109F/G roll rate ?
I only know this (DVL evaluation): http://bbs.hitechcre...?topic=160997.0 (the image is gone, sadly)
Max roll rate of Bf 109F-2, at 30kg/66lbs stickforce :
200 kph = 45 deg/sec (0.8rad)
300 kph = 68 deg/sec (1.2rad)
400 kph = 83 deg/sec (1.45rad)
480 kph = 20kg/44lbs limit
500 kph = 88 deg/sec (1.55rad)
600 kph = 91 deg/sec (1.6rad) - peak value
700 kph = 56 deg/sec (0.98rad)
800 kph = 23 deg/sec (0.4rad)
(speed is TAS, and altitude is 3000m)
EDIT: New chart
