The He162 is the best for acrobatic flights (Very maneuvrable, and NICE http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif)...i love its futuristic looking.

Im not going to use the HE-162, it would look stupid in formation ;]

Could you comment on the 3 in my list ?

YP-80 is fairly easy to handle and looks tasty

I would not use the Bl-1 because its aerodynamics are bad. Once you reach something like 650km/h it wants to point downwards and the controls get very sluggish.

I think the P-80's were used for aerobatics. I think thats the most manuverable of the ones listed there.

262's are a joy to fly (Not to mention look damn cool), but have a tendancy to overheat easily. I'd go with the YP-80.

Like most German planes the Me262 is not a good turner. Also, it's an interceptor, not a fighter. I would go with the YP-80 if the three mentioned are the choices.

BI-1 has rocket propulsion.

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Ignoring your list I would still choose the P-80. It has a good overall flight performance, quick roll rate, and even does nice snaps spins and tumbles. . . upright and inverted in each case.

The challenge in any jet in this sim is in managing power for formation work.

I'd chose YP-80.
Good maneuvrability at almost all speeds, good visibility.
Too bad that sometimes it's engine suddenly quits... is this historically accurate, BTW?
