She does get very dirty, be ready to bring the power on.

This is the NATOPS chart you should roughly reference to check the onspeed AOA indicator is working when level on the downwind 180 etc.

I guess it is a lot of getting used to and having a good HOTAS.

neofighter referenced this in one of his videos how quickly she just drops out of the sky with flaps down and that needing some adjustment.

The throttle thing as well, I got some "deadzone" at idle coming up (I saw there was a thread about it already)

I've noticed that she doesn't tend to slow down or loose speed when you are fast already and at idle but once the speed goes below 200 knots.... things go loco real fast.

Gonna keep practicing, see what this next patch this week brings.

EDIT: Yeah there is a lot of talk on the forums, I know it is EA, so I have no issues with it gonna keep practicing. One of the most exciting things for me is the weekly updates we will be having, just gets me hyped reading the patch notes and seeing what changes and how stuff progresses

Amazing. The chart is what I was looking for. Missed it in NATOPS, blindly.

I don't think this drag will change all that much...

She would be very dirty considering this jet can get down to the landing speeds of the A-10.

I see many struggling and yes she needs a tweak here and there in the FBW system etc.

You should practice A LOT in a less stressful area like they do IRL, not doing case 1 around the carrier. Here's a quick video I did showing how she will sit nicely once trimmed for onspeed AOA. Very little turbulence set here, watch how little pitch is needed if any and there was no re trimming here. You want to practice this throttle control, then have the pressure of case 1 carrier op's.

To have a 3 degree glide slope, use the tacan and punch in the airport. Be at 1500 feet at 5 Miles level and onspeed before decending, or 3000 feet at 10 miles.
