I'm just wondering if anyone can speak about the new flight models we'll get hopefully before arthritis sets in and we can't use our joysticks anymore.

As is, stall characteristics are not modeled very well at all. It's a very simple: pull too hard on the elevators -> drop from the air like a rock in a hard spin, the only difference I've ever seen is how hard you can turn without going into a spin. Will the new FMs be improved in this area? as in different planes stalling in different ways? Some planes should just drift back into an AoA that generates enough lift, some do snap rolls or dip a wing less severely while only a few (ie P-39) easily get into such bad situations.

None of the beta testers can talk about it. They already said quite a bit on SimHQ but nothing really detailed. I believe they have all signed NDA's and therefore are legally bound not to say anything. So I wouldn't expect much back.

But yes, probably stalls will be much better. The answer is "probably yes".
