i was flying in my F6F campaign, but every time i do a carrier landing in one i seem to nose over from the smallest bounce. what i've noticed is that when the conditions are met for a proper three point landing are met, the plane bounces and then noses over and all that. the thing is i've done this a series of times with the hellcat and haven't had a successful landing, the bounce is so severe that it's extremely difficult (i've managed it a few times, so it isn't impossible) to land a plane that from what i've heard was a quite doscile and forgiving plane in the landing pattern. so what's the problem, is it just me? if so would somebody please tell me, or send me a track with the proper landing technique? if it isn't, i've got a track of my landing a hellcat, in the above mentioned manner, and a corsair for comparison, which was known for it's high landing speed and nasty stall characteristics that anyone who wishes to can look at to see my problem (which i actually have no problems landing without fatal bouncing). i am using 3.01m version, F6F-3 late, vs. F4U-1D. i can email you the tracks if you're interested in seeing them.

thanks for the help and or feedback,
Max

nevermind, it appears that my problem is solved after updating to 3.02bm, hopefully nothing else is altered.
