when i boom in a 190 most times i cut completely the trotle 1 second before firing

on this way its easier to aim, maybe no torque

is this correct or theres no diference aiming with throttle 100% or 0%?

I tend not to twist stick much and not to abuse throttle either before firing, regardless of what throttle setting I am.

However I must agree with you it should be easier (more stable) without power, and you shouldn't lose much energy that way if you run your aircraft in dive for 5-10 seconds (but also, depending on aircraft, this effect shouldn't be too radical 100% thrott vs 0% thrott providing that you fly at speed, which you are considering teh dive).

I usually ****** the throttle when diving on a bandit in order to control my speed because the plane doesn't fly itself.

Makes sense to me, so long as you don't get fixated on the target and leave the power off for too long.
