Hi all.
I haven't been flying for nearly 2 and a half months. Started to fly again this weekend with 1.21. Now i have serious problems with the 109s I used to fly them all of the time but the first thing i did this weekend was to try a little 1on1 online on HL. We both took a 109F4 but I couldn't turn with the guy and the rudder felt so heavy. So I went to mess around with my sticksettings and tried offline but I can't seem to find the right settings anymore http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif The Hurri and La5 seem to be much better in the vertical than me. I'm using a Saitek Cyborg 3D stick btw. Anyone got any advice how to adjust the settings? I tried a couple of things but nothing seems to work. thank you

How much fuel do you have before you enage? Do you use Combat flaps when you turn? Try Open rad and reduse throttle when you go into a dive then close rad and go full throttle before you go vertical.

A P-51 can out turn another P-51 that has the same amount of fuel while bough are using Combat flaps. If one use's Auto Rad while the other use's a Closed Rad, the guy closing his Rad will evently win in a sustained turn.

thank you. I know how to use flaps and rad in combat. I've been flying a lot before but had to take a break due to work at Uni. Now I installed the new patch and I'm a bit confused. I know that the response of the 109 is not that good at higher speed but I'm surprised that the F4 behaves like that as well so I think it's my stick. I don't get any blackouts anymore for example, on the other hand I can stall her easily at the moment. this is the thing that confuses me a bit. On one hand it seems like i don't have enough stick response on the other hand it seems to be too much?!?
