Please help, the Russian countryside is being destroyed by smoking holes every time I fly the I-16!

Haven't flown the I-16 so I can't help you.

Dont know if it is any different in the I-16, but basic stall recovery is approached in this order. Kill throttle(relieves torque effect), apply rudder in direction of spin and push stick forward. Hope this helps.

Cheers!

I presume you mean spins. . . the best way is to prevent them, recover as soon as a wing drops. Do this by pushing the stick very quickly forward, and applying rudder to lift the dropping wing. If done ASAP this will keep stalls from turning into spins. If a spin does develop you do the same thing, but be sure to cut power all the way ASAP. Keep in mind that time is the most important thing in the sim. . .letting the spin develop is a bad idea. To recap: suppose you are spinning to the left, kill power, give full right rudder, and push the stick forward (all the way is OK in the sim). In the current version of the sim many spins will not be recoverable from reasonable altitudes, if at all, so your best bet is to be quick at popping the stick forward and kicking some opposite rudder.

To prevent stall/spin adjust the elevator & rudder response to the joystick movement.Less at first for more gentle movement of control surface. Experiment with spin recovery, start at 3000 M, you may not need forward stick, Whatever works for you.z&x are full left & full right rudder.close throttle & punch the appropriate key. If you are still spinning below 500 M bail out.

Stalls are often caused by low air speed. Keep speed up & be gentle.

Practice-Practice-Practice
Perfect practice makes perfect.

To prevent stalling, change your spark plugs regularly.

There's also a little problem called flat spins, which are nearly impossible to recover from. You'll know you're in a flat spin when you're level with the horizon and spinning like a top slowly towards the ground. It looks like a slow descent but it will still kill you. The best solution is to bail out at that point.

This works for the I-16 (although I tend to push the nose down first to build up airspeed asap then apply opposite rudder). It's not a difficult plane to recover.

It's also possible to get out of a flat spin but you'll need about 3000m spare altitude (which isn't often).
