<sarcasm>
I feel that I should be able to roll in on a target and have my pipper smack dead center on it after rolling wings level, like can be seen in RL videos. It's too bad really that legal reasons prevented ED from modelling the plane in a way that this is possible.
</sarcasm>

But seriously. The debate about the A-10's performance has come up so often on this forum, and every single time someone actually compared DCS to documented RL performance, it was within single digit percentage of deviation, and typically performed as it should down to a few knots, degrees, feet, or whatever measurement was used.

I find it completely amazing how the handling characteristics of the DCS jet provide feedback about the weight of the aircraft. As long as it's flown like its RL counterpart, I believe it also behaves that way.

With rule 1.16, it's certainly not easy to point out in public how the aircraft differs from RL documentation, but as long as people go by just a gut feeling, dunno, maybe there's something wrong with your gut instead?

I've been using it since a few months after early release (missed the free Nevada map, oops) and it's still my primary ride so I think that says something. Just wish that ED would fix the little bugs that have popped up recently.

Any plane that's not carrying cargo or passengers, no bombs and a half tank of fuel, will be fast and nimble. Burden it with max takeoff weight... why would you still expect it to be nimble? Load it with bricks, expect it to fly like a brick!

Same is true of cars, and a Formula1 car is especially light, go figure.

I fly MP servers where you need to be low and fast, go in and go out and the Hog can hold 270 knots easy with 4 mavs and 4 JDAM + half fuel.

Do you want more performance? drop the TER and go with 2 G MAVs and 4 JDAMs (or LGB up to you)

I never get right those steady turns and rolls without wobble the nose of the aircraft.

If the nose 'wobbles' you aren't controlling yaw/rudder correctly.

You are pulling to much on the stick. Aim for the specific G as the AFI 11-246 mentions and it will look just as in the video. My initial tendency was to pull back on the stick as far as it will go but that is to much. Just use the accelerometer or the steady stall warning horn whichever occurs first.
For example; the level 360° maneuver is not level, you only use 85° of bank and start gradually increasing G until reach 6g or steady tone. the first 180 should be with 1 and 3/4 degree nose up and the last 180 the same degrees down. See 6:48 in the video you posted. Note the pilots look like he is barely moving the stick
