That’s a fun, if intense experiment Taking a break after spinning out a lot in the MiG-19 and blasting fools in VR
@Bloodreina if you want, we have comms running on the mudspike discord, click the megaphone icon on the upper right.
Felt bad shooting up those beautiful spitfires. I was expecting to cook some Messers and fokkers tbh
@Cib You might not want to turn into your enemy all the time. Sometimes it’s better to keep going up for a bit and look down your wing at the bandit until you see you’re past his 9-3 line, then turn in.
@Victork2 You’re pullen’ too hard man. slack off if the plane starts protesting. Turn rate is a result of AoA, speed and available lift. Like my MiG-19, past a certain AoA and below a certain speed, pulling harder will not give more turn rate.
The F/A-18 of course, is a FBW plane, those are not actually flown by you, but commanded. You tell the plane you want a certain G or turn rate and it does its level best to give it to you. Not so in a tomcat or spitfire. Often I have the stick at near neutral in pitch when combat turning a tomcat. Especially when coming over the top.
