1. Is it me or do you now blackout easier?
2. Besides the giro-sight is there a preformance difference in the D5 and D20?

Yip she black outs very easy. Some will say its the speed when you turn. I will say what speed. That mustang ant got no speed in this sim.

I find they are the same as they where before in regards to blackouts.

In real life there was a slight differance in manuverablity between the P-51D and P-51K, i could be wronge. Both aircraft have the same engine and max top speeds.

I dont know if this has to do with all planes but i find that the P-51 holds its Energy better in manuvers.

I remember in 1.22 that i could pull off the Immelmann, now i can do two of them if i pick up enough speed. The P-51's seem to have a lower stall speed then before. You guys notice this?

tweak your Y axis sensitivity.

I use 0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0 with my X45.

With the settings too heavy the 51 seems to black out easily. (as do many planes)

With the settings tweaked right the 51 feels just about right as far as black outs, imo.

It does seem to lack speed/acceleration in the 325~ range. Im not sure about this, but it seems to me the 51 in FB is faster with auto prop pitch than 100%. I had to unmap manual prop pitch from a slider to really notice it.
Not really sure about this, still looking at it.

as a trade off, it does seem to have a lower stall speed. I think you are right Tiger.

I thought i noticed something differant. I mean i do fly the P-51's and P-47's alot. I just remember that in 1.22 when coming out of the Immelmann that i would have hardly any energy lol.

As for the P-51 and or i should say alied planes there is no option for manuel prop pitch. Even in real live they didn't have manual prop pitch for most alied planes.

The P-51 has a CPS(Constant Speed Propeller). All you do is set your desired RPM. The propeller governer will automaticaly change pitch to stay at the RPM you have set.

Again, the P-51 does not have manuel prop pitch(Variable Pitch Propeller).

I know that the 51 used a csp.

But I think the 51 seems faster in game if you dont even have man prop pitch mapped to a slider. Im not sure, but I think there is a bug with auto prop pitch.

the difference is mostly noticeable 325~ mph and up. Just an observation, need to dig further. I might be wrong.

I have manual prop pitch mapped to fly other aircraft, not the 51.
