Is it me or is it easier to get it up in FB? I never played FB pre-patch, so I can't comment on 1.0... but comparing my P-39 from IL-2 to FB, it's just easier. In IL-2 I couldn't get above 170 or 180kph on the ground and I had to drag that sucker up into the air. In FB I can get up to 220kph on the ground and anything over 200kph and she just floats up no sweat. In general, the P-39 seems easier to fly, but I guess not all that different.

Has anyone found this to be the case with other planes in FB?

Yes, it's easier for all the planes.

Oh and it was even easier in v1.0 IMO.

Yeah, but I just bought a 6.1 system just for the p-39 (to hear the engine in the back). Does that work yet like it did in IL-2Ӱ

I have a surround sound system that worked great for flying.
I haven't used anything other than my headphones with the patch.
There are sound issues though.
