I just wanted to really say thank you for all the hard work for a great Mustang. Especially considering that it was free for all of us. She is a joy to fly and it really has brought alot of childhood dreams to fruition. Closest thing yet in my estimation./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I don't know how you guys do it, but please keep doing it! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thanks!!!!

Agreed, 100%. I'd say most of us that have been waiting to fly the Mustang are happy. I believe that some of the CHIMPS, uh, I mean chumps had high expectations of the Mustang, thinking it'd turn on a dime, fly faster than a Me-262....and most of all, be easy to fly. Me, I'm enjoying LEARNING to fly the Mustang and hopefully someday I'll be good at flying it! So far I've learned that it won't overheat at all if flown properly, it can indeed turn very nicely, when flown properly, and can reach some impressive speeds, when flown properly....not to mention the incredible diving ability....amazing that some chimps, I mean chumps, complain about it! Don't pay any attention to the whiners, Oleg, they are a very loud minority. Keep up the great work!

Yeah, I mentioned over in the general forums that I hope they don't do too much to her. I agree with you. This plane has amazing potential. Everyone keeps talking about the leaked beta. I never tried that version, but it sounds a bit overdone from what I've heard.

Hello Guy's,

I too am very happy for the free Mustang. But I sure hope the final 1.2 isn't as large as the public beta. I doubt it will be but these large patch/add-ons are to much for 56ker's like myself. I would prabobly have the public beta installed if I had cable,but I don't. Not until December anyway. I'm just glad that the Mustang is flyabe finally. I've been waiting a very long time to fly my favorite aircraft. And too hear how good it's been modelled is even better. But personally I feel like I got screwed out of the P-51D with the gyrosight. From the beginning I thought we were getting both in the free add-on. But then I read it's going to be in the paid add-on in January. I mean it's fine because I'm buying it when it is released. But I still feel like I should have it in the free add-on. Now maybe they are still working on making the gyrosight work historically accurate and correctly in the game. If that's the case then I'm cool with that. If not then,well,I feel like I got screwed. I really thought we were getting version's in the free add-on. But anyway's,I am very greatfull that we our getting the P-51D flyable and earlier version's in the paid add-on. I'm excited and can't wait! =S=

I think the new Mustang is great but it does have some issues. It isnt as fast as it should be...high alt performance is lackluster, aileron trim,mixture and supercharger no longer work. Hopefully all this will be fixed in the final vbersion. Dont forget the infamous K-4 rudder thing.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Still though it is a good plane and the best Mustang I have ever flown.

Wow! Im not the only Mustang lover! I must admit, the Supercharger thing bafled me. Is it all automatic? Should we have control of the Supercharger?
Other than that I look forward to the B and C models. This will round out the battle for Europe scenery.

Hello Bearcat,

Yeah it should have aileron trim and everything else you said. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif But doesn't every plane in FB have issue's? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I am happy to hear the thing's I've been hearing about the Mustang. It will be something to look forward to when the final is released and I can fly it. I hate having 56k connection and having to listen to all this good new's. I just hope they fix the radiator animation and those stupid looking landing gear door's. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif God those two thing's drive me nut's. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif The landing light's are wrong aswell,but I won't get to picky now (positioned wrong,should only have one under port wing). Oop's,did those just slip in there? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif =S=

This is from an article on flying the P-51:

"The P-51D, which I flew, was a very straightforward airplane in every way. By that I mean it wasn't difficult to fly or hard to handle, as long as you remembered a few basic things. First and foremost, you never forgot for a minute that it could bite hard if you got careless. There are lots of airplanes that will let you have another chance if you get ham-handed. The -51, in certain areas of her envelope, wasn't one of them...

...Almost everything on the -51 is automatic after it's checked and set for flight. We had an electric primer that was VERY sensitive, instead of the old push-in-and-lock type. The Merlin will usually take only a few seconds of primer before it loads up. The mixture is automatic through a high altitude mixture aneroid through all flight ranges..."

You can find it here: http://www.warbirdalley.com/p51pr.htm

Oh, and here is something that really is missing from the FB Mustang:

"The only real drawbacks are ever increasing control pressures as speed increases, particularly over 300 mph, and immense fluctuations in yaw with power or speed changes, requiring a fair amount of fiddling with the trim wheels."

This was a common complaint about the Mustang, because while it did not really hamper performance, the directional instability made the Mustang not the best of gun platforms. In FB, you trim the rudder once and really don't have to touch it again. The Mustang exhibits no directional instability in the game whatsoever.

When you combine this with Oleg's removal of recoil effects due to incessant whining, you've got things in FB better than they ever were in real life.
