Everytime I pull back hard on my stick, I go out of control and stall very very quickly. How do I fix this? It wasnt an issue before I messed around with my config.

Well how hard are you pulling back? That is correct behavior actually - it is called an "acellerated stall". Remember that stall is related to angle of attack and not speed - it is surpassing the critical AOA that induces a stall not the speed at which you are flying. The reason stalls are associated with slow speeds is that generally you are at the highest AOA when flying slowly...however you can easily place yourself on the wrong side of the critical AOA in hard manuvering regardless of the speed you are going!

Sorry about that, saw the topic name and couldn't help myself. Now to your question, be gentle on the controls. Flying a fighter is like driving a racecar in the red. If you overcontrol, jerk the stick quickly, or slam the throttle back and forth, high performance cars and airplanes will bite you on the ***.

Just be smooth, and if you feel the plane wanting to depart, back off a bit.
