Oh My God I used to like the p40 but I think I will love it now, the zoom climb is mind blowing.It's still not a fast plane but at least it picks up speed a little better and holds it longer and wont explode when you get to 300mph /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Looks like the CEM has been worked on for the better /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

ALso has anyone noticed that the m-105 field mod wont lose RPM's when you shut the throttle it feels like it's stuck on around 30% power then it suddenly drop's (bug maybe?)

I had a go at P-40 today a little and first thing I notice is that at higher speeds (above 250mph) the roll rate is very slow and I thought that P-40 is supposed to be excellent at higher speeds because of it's small surface aerlons???

It dos'nt help,if you slowly advance the throttle it picks up revs suddenly at 25-30% ,makes landing a bit hard when you cant slow down.
