Dont know if this is a feature or not or if it affects all planes, so I just notify so U can check it out if u want or need to.
It's not a big deal to me but since I try to press the planes and fly to the absolute limit it can be good to know that this may happen, although very seldom.
---------------------------

Stumbled over this while testing divingspeeds and pullouts.
A m8 notifyed me that I had posted a wrong breakup-speed for the 109G2 in another post earlier today.
I thought I had made a mistake and mixed up my testresult with another 109. (wich can happen)
But then I started to look closer at my other testscores and began to re-test them and found that the breakupspeed wasn't the same anymore and I cant replicate some tests I made earlier.
----------------------------------------

Tested The 109G6 and 109K4. I used the speedbar for speed measurement.

109G6 began breaking up at around 870-880km/h in the first test.
Later today I tested again with same plane (G6) and achieved 910km/h without any damage. This time however I remembered to record a track. Now a while later, I'm again breaking up at around 870-880km/h.

Same thing with the 109 K4.
Earlier I managed to reach 900km/h without damage and now I can't get over 880km/h without breaking up.

It depends on the force you pull your stick back.
Pull hard and the plane will break, pull soft and you may survive http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Funny thing is that when I broke at 880 km/h I didn't pull at all, but at 910km/h I pulled hard without combatflap and without breaking anything.

Confusing eh ? (he he)
