These changes happen with the Yak and the TF-51 as well, but they are very mild.

The question is, can you fly the 190D at full power, close to the stall and keep the direction by just keeping the...

The last time I used the rudder trim option in the menu, it still didn't have any noticable effect on airplane.

And since the strut doesn't compress by 10ft it's obvious that the ralt is apparently calibrated to ~0ft ;)

Btw, congratulations to your Airpower 19 display pilot!

Are you talking about the real F-16 aircraft or the real F-16 simulator? Watched more than 10 HUD videos now and in roughly 75% the ralt shows 0 and in 25% the ralt constantly fluctuates between 0...

Don't know the F-16, but on most planes the RA shows either 0 or even a negative value on ground since it's usually calibrated to show zero at mainwheel touchdown at the correct approach attitude. ...

One of the advantages of a FBW system that you basically can't rip the wings off or stall the airplane, regardless how fast and/or strong you pull.

What lack of response do you mean? Response is...

I believe that many flightsim pilots underestimate the force required to move the controls IRL.

E.g. in the early 1950s the maximum force to apply full rudder was limited to 180lbs and this has...

I don't get it. First you are stating that my 'mistake' is, to touchdown at constant thrust and at a constant attitude.

Now you are saying, idle after touchdown. Do you reduce power before...

1. Of course it does matter. If you e.g. decrease thrust while still in the air, the total energy at touchdown will be noticable reduced. The ROD will increase and/or the speed will decrease as well....

The 402 achieves its higher performance mainly due to higher rpms and temps. I severely doubt that idle thrust is significantly higher compared to the 400 engine.

1. If you flare it takes longer to get the weight onto the wheels after touchdown.

2. ? The correct procedure is to maintain thrust and attitude to touchdown.

3. I'm looking forward to the...

That's more a question of design philosophy than being an actual advantage. E.g. the Typhoon and the Su-57 both have a conventional stick layout.
