Good job - I've been trying hard to get it to spin, but so far I haven't had any luck.

The impact of your jet looked somewhat survivable though. I've hit the ground harder with the KA50.

I’m not sure the F-16 will spin in the conventional sense. But it will certainly deep stall. The pitch override works well to rock it back and forth to get the AoA back under the critical limit. Only time I’ve managed it was the top of a vertical climb and manoeuvring with an asymmetric CAT III load in CAT 1 and departing the aircraft rather unexpectedly lol.

Is that another version? Because the MPO ain't modelled yet, the button is not working from what I've seen. I'll try CAT III and see what happens.

DCS F-16 Inverted Spin Departure with Recovery. No MPO yet.

MPO does indeed work. Get it in a deep stall and flick and hold the switch, you’ll see you get a lot more stab movement.

The switch is not clickable.

What? Yes it is. It’s a spring loaded switch on the real aircraft. Which is required to be held by the pilot. In the “other sim” it is a toggle switch which stays where you put it, this is not correct to the real aircraft. In the DCS F-16 it’s best to bind it to a switch or button so you can press/hold it with your left hand and fly with your right hand. As per the real aircraft.

It's not really a spin, it's a slow yaw left to right and back. Been in the same situation already three times, no luck in getting out of it yet.

It's not hard if you've got the height. Hold Manual Pitch Override and then rock the aircraft back and forth in pitch until you get it far enough down that it starts flying again.
