Hey guys!

Is it possible at all to recover from P-39 spin? When i fly P-39 at maximum realism every serious stall turns into spin from which I cannot manage to recover.

I am able to recover from a spin on most of A/Cs given I have enough altitude except P-39.

The P-39 can get itself in to some nasty spins so be careful not to push her too far. I usually bail out of the P-39 if I can't recover after 2-3 seconds or if I'm below 1000 mtrs. If it gets into a flat spin it's hopeless to even try to recover.

Well that depends on the spin...
Most ain't to bad..But a FLAT spin in a p-39 is almost imposible to recover. I've only pulled out of 2 p-39 flat spins. Both times i was forutunate enough to have penty of air between me & the ground. Other wise i would have bought the farm. Wish i could give more advice,,but it's kinda a fell your way out of it kinda thing for me.

At the very beginning of a serious stall, throttle down and nose down, then let the plane take its course for a second and you'll have regained control.
