There are no Dorniers in the patch.

Uh, the Dornier Do-335 Pfeil should be there. If you can't see it in the menu (before the 190, I think), you might need to reinstall. I've never had that kind of problem, but there are people here who have -- they can help better than I.

I'm not sure if flight models changed much, but I was pleasantly surprised when I put a Macchi into a spin. Very realistic now.

Reading is fundamental. He said standalone. The Dornier is not for the standalone but the option to select it exists. The model does not.

It will probably be removed in a patch.

If you have the Stand-alone installed, you're not going to see it. That is a Merged version add-on. No German aircraft in Pacific Fighters.

i believe theres a bug in the standalone patch that lets the players see the do-335 in the QMB and FMB plane list but if they select it, the game may crash.

Although I have to admit not having flown for a while, I didn't notice much change in flight dynamics. Same good things, same bad things.

No torque to speak of on takeoff roll (except the odd, 'can't taxi and turn against torque even at very low throttle' phenomenon). You can just gun the engine, tap the rudder, maybe, and you're off.

'Canned' snap/stall behavior. Most irritating on Zeros... and still very prevalent when nose up in any plane and changing direction, even with throttle pulled all the way back.

Cannon still seem way too effective. It's more like modern jet cannon: any one hit, no matter how fleeting, and you're likely done or badly, badly crippled. It just wasn't like that in WWII. You should need a good, full second sustained burst in one area to get that. Snapshots during wild dogfights shouldn't "instantly" oil windscreens and "disable controls" with the regularity they do.

The Bf109s felt nice, by and large. Didn't try any of the new birds yet; I wanted a sense of how "familiar ones" flew first.
