  1. The requirement to connect the g-suit was added recently and I missed it in the patch notes. I had some interesting flights until I remembered the discussion about adding it!
  2. Huh! Not how I remember it previously! I really do need to fly it! It has been years...
  3. I agree with the above. I tried the Spit a little while ago during the free-fly event, and only managed about 30 minutes with it, but the ground handling was definitely very strange. It seemed worse than the P-51 when it was first released (if anyone remembers the issues back then). The P-47 is definitely better behaved. Speaking of the P-51... I need to dig it out of the hangar.
  4. Seems there isn't a defined glide speed for the P-47. All I can find is "maintain speed well above the stall". I guess they didn't bother much with the finer points of gliding back then??? http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/p-47/p-47.html
  5. "Engine controls - interconnected" Link throttle and prop for landing?? Am I understanding this correctly?
  6. Yes... while I don't doubt that it could be quite sensitive to mis-handling, I'd think it is more robust than we are seeing in the sim otherwise there would be a lot of destroyed engines IRL, and AFAIK that simply isn't the case (and if it was, those engines would be replaced with something better pretty darn quick). Something that is often forgotten is these WW2 birds were flown by pilots with very little experience, and they'd need to be fairly robust to survive war and the low-time pilots that were flying them. I really think the sim is over-exaggerating these things
  7. That sounds like there is quite a bit left to do. The live streams of it last year made me think 6 months or so to release. Looking forward to it nonetheless!
  8. Throttle curve seems weird... You need to crack open the throttle, then prime the engine. I had trouble at first, but it was because I was over-priming/flooding the engine. It would catch but not run. At sea level and OAT of +15 deg. C I prime the engine three times. Next, I hold the inertia starter to ENERGIZE for 15 seconds. She starts every time.
  9. Don't pull the power all the way off. Just pull "a bit" off so she starts to bleed speed as you cross the threshold. As the speed decays gently lift the nose up to the 3-point attitude and let it settle onto the ground. Once you have touchdown then pull off the power, add some backstick to hold the tail down and apply gentle braking. I prefer flying a curved approach.
  10. What does mission debrief say? If you damaged the bearings, it will say so there.
  11. Thanks! I saw another post that says this is accurate to the real engine due to it having a single main bearing.
  12. We would be here all day and face forum bans if we posted what we thought. There are threads galore about it in the JF-17 forum.
  13. I did both. First, I attempt the inverted spin from a loop. I show the slats are deploying as a result of high AoA, then after the second attempt I unload and show the slats retracting in response to reduced AoA. The aircraft does not behave as described in the OP video. Second, I show a +1 g stall, then attempt an upright spin (but it doesn't properly enter a spin state). I did provide some commentary as I was flying but it got split out to a seperate track and isn't in the video uploaded to YouTube.
  14. Do you want a straight stall, or want me to try and replicate what we are discussing here? What we are discussing here is inverted spin entry during a loop maneuver, but DCS doesn't simulate this specific phenomenon.
  15. We can stall in the sim. All it means is the wing is no longer producing lift. The video linked showed a stall with the aircraft climbing nearly vertically. The problem with this is it puts the gravity vector immediately behind the aircraft and will simply result in a tail slide/tumble. What we're discuissing here is an accelerated stall during a looping maneuver, where there was insufficient airspeed at entry, and over the top the aircraft experienced an accelerated stall. Due to the AoA effects of this particular aircraft, and the position of the gravity v
