It's just a question. I've noticed that the overall handling of the La family has improved alot in the beta.

I've never seen a roll chart for any La. But I doubt it could out-roll the Fw-190A series.

Are you sure the La-7 is rolling at 180 deg/sec?

What test methods have you used?

Shouldn't be able to do that, but I haven't noticed the roll rate improve either. They seem to be the same average roll rate...I will test this however.

What models are you flying?

Just a regular roll. Rudder and full aileron input. It's remarkably swift. Speed was around 400+.

Don't use rudder. Just use ailerons and see.

Hmm, I'm still getting 2,05 and 2,25 seconds for a full roll at around 410-420km/h, without the use of rudder.

If your using the 1.2b with just RC_01 installed you are using a combination of files that was never suppose to exist, the results are erratic and unintentional.

I will say it again, NOONE has the RCO2 file the ftp server crashed out before it could be downloaded by anyone. the combined zip people are downloading is the leaked 1.2b and RC_01 and because they are too lazy and ignorant to do their homework they think its the release candidate beta.

If you are using PURELY the 1.2b file then you might have a case for the results your citing, however even then it wasn't suppose to be a public release so what did you expect.
