Good instructional P38 video on flight/flap operation.

"Power on stall of 70mph", "No tendency to drop off on a wing to either side during a stall at any altitude"

Actually, I don't think any of the US WWII fighters were setup for inverted flight. Inverted oil, and fuel systems were costly, and added weight.

Also, you can find the entire video on Zeno's Warbird site, along with a number of other WWII US aircraft.

I fly the 38 quiet abit and let me asure you that whle that video is correct, your speed should never go below 200mph in a combat situation http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and for landing 90-80mph is a more realistic flare speed. Tis an awsome vid though, watched it many milllions of times.
