considering the stronger torque effect and new stall characteristics we have heard off I would say that this will affect the slower planes more than the faster ones, such as I-153, p11 and J8a... maybe especially the J8 because this was hard to stall alltogether in earlier versions.... but I am not saying it's a bad thing if this is the case.... if it is more "real" I am all for it.
We will just have to find out when 4.0 is out - just speculating...

I haven't tested it either, but I agree with you. It's logical if you think about it. I-153, I-16, J8A and P.11c will be a handfull at take-offs.

The fps! - not because of the new FM but because of the clouds - the clouds will force every little chip in your rig to its knees...

The 109 series. If the FM is going to become more realistic and, therefore, more difficult the 109s will become much more demanding of the pilot.

The 190s already require a higher level of skill than most other planes to get their best out of them and I think that while the new FM'll sort the boys from the girls 190 addicts will rise to any additional demands it makes.

I resent the "boys from girls" expression, Ploughman, but I understand what you're saying.

For me I think the P-39 series may suffer the most, which is good, because the flight modelling for it has seemed off since the original IL2. I liked it before when any wrong maneuver would put you into a spin. You had to play your cards right, but once you learned to fly it, the P-39 dominated the skies.

I fear for my beloved spit... so many complaints..... it started off a little odd, a La7 could out turn it in the earlier patches despite a considerable wing loading advantage to the spit. However with successive patches the La7 got toned down for turn and so did some other planes....thank you 1c.

However, despite that the spit was a brutal close in dogfighter in RL, very slippery, with an excellent climbrate, I still fear that the endless spit whining will result in a relative shift away from it.

I'd rather be a live noob in a spit than a dead, but righteous, (P47, 190, P38 etc) pilot. And if you don't Bnz then the above are death traps....

I would say the 109 series, especially the later models. The first plane I'm going to try out in 4.0 is a 109G-6 then a 109K-4 to see how they handle on take offs and landings.
