I've uninstalled DCS many month ago due to the still remaining basic bugs with the F-5, the F/A-18 and the Yak-52 (…) Absolutely nothing has happened in many month except that ED is constantly making announcements about new add-ons.
OK, so the Yak isn't moving as fast as any of us would like, but to say the F/A-18C has had nothing done to it for months is ridiculous.
Yes, it is in beta, but despite occasional griping from people that have nothing to base their claims on, the FM is near enough for a non-E.D. related F/A-18 pilot to say it's near enough that:

What it comes down to is simply "doing that pilot shiz".

The aircraft in its current form is more than manageable. As long as you make all the required airspeed/altitude/configuration "wickets" for the various locations in the break / pattern / approach turn / in the groove / etc , it is all "technique" on how you get there. Practice and try different things and do what works for you.
If we say your "months" is 2 months, the F/A-18C has received (& in the case of weapons, systems to support were added):
IR Maveric
Improvements to the Radar modelling and display (BRA to ownship & A/A WP)
Harm
JHMCS
&
AIM-9x with new tones logic
bug fixes / new options for MAV slew,
Dud cue fixed
changes to radar defaults based on SME feedback
Images of Data Link / MSI, MIDS and COLOR shown
Skins added
Timed (nose / tail ) fusing added.
AGM-65F
(I know I've missed stuff, but when did AIM-7 get functioning loft & changes to the guidance system ? Those were F/A-18C driven too)

from the newsletters over the past couple of months:
•Fix of stores weight calculation in MCc (LAU-61 rockets add absurd amount of weight).
•Unable to step through all GBUs loaded, Incorrect release sequence are fixed.
•AIM-7 will lose semi active radar guidance when the f-18C is hit and enters 360 spin.
•Fixed crash when cycle between CAP-9 and TST pod.
•Unable to select BRA with no A/A Waypoint Selected is fixed.
•Radar page BRA and A/A Waypoint Color Error is fixed.
•F/A-18C: Fixed AGM-65E target lock issue.
•Multimonitor: Left and Right monitors are changed is fixed.
•VR: One eye image blinks when water set to High is fixed.
•F/A-18C training - lesson 12 AIM-9. Default language will be EN not RU.
•In game debrief showing dictKey for unit names instead of actual unit name is fixed.
•Laser code panel does not close in some case is fixed.
•Corrected wrong VVI indication on HUD
•Crash when using Weapon.getDesc() on an Aim-7F from event handler is fixed.
•Removed GBU-16 dual carry on BRU-33.
•Added Instant Action Missions:
•Caucasus FA-18C AGM-65F Maverick Practice
•Caucasus FA-18C Paveway II Laser Guided Bombs Practice
•Caucasus FA-18C River Run
•Persian Gulf FA-18 Strike Fighter
•Added HARM delivery in the Self Protect mode.
•Fixed DUD cue for GPB/LGB.
•Fixed FOV of AGM-65E.
•Fixed TDC slew of AGM-65F.
•Radar ACM modes switching corrected.
•Missing Leading Edge Extension (LEX) Vapors restored.
•Added COLOR option to Radar, DATA sub-level.
•Added Maverick TTMR and IN RNG (in range) cues when seeker slaved to Waypoint Designated (WPDSG) point.
•Added new, more accurate AIM-9X sounds.
•Added Laser-guided bombs GBU-10/12/16.
•Added air show smoke for Hornet. New loadout option and key command added.
•Added BRAA (enabled on Radar/DATA) and AA Waypoint (Bullseye), set on HSI/DATA page with indications on and attack radar page.
•Added AGM-65F SHIP Mode.
•Cockpit textures updated to include fixed normal map issue on the left DDI.
•Ripple Single/Ripple Salvo fixed.
•VACQ and GACQ symbol on HUD fixed.
•Updated F/A-18C RU manual by Vortex.
•Added radio command to AI wingmen to “Go to Tanker”.
•Corrected nose bounce and blackout when launching from the aircraft carrier with a heavy payload.
•Updated AGM-65E/F. While the AGM-65E is now complete, the AGM-65F is still a work in progress. Known AGM-65F issues include TDC slew roughness, missile speed, and seeker lock distance against ships.
•Radar fixes:
- Radar will no longer move to the other side of the display when when the radar is commanded gimbal limits
- Fix the antenna position if the HMD is turned on and the operator looks at the HUD
- Radar no longer gets stuck in an 8-degree scan and that cannot be exited after locking a target and breaking lock
- Rmax and Seeker Cue can no longer appear outside the tactical radar area.
•JHMCS:
- HACQ/LHAQ mode - radar FOV circle will be drawn while looking through HUD
- HACQ/LHAQ mode - radar lock while looking through HUD is fixed
- Fixed radar antenna position lock when HMD is turned on and looking through HUD
- Up-look reticles was added

The Yak isn't moving as fast as any of us like? Did it move at all?
Btw, I should have been more clear since I'm only interested in the FLYING part in DCS.
I'm talking exclusively about basic FM bugs/problems.
e.g.
Flaps & rpm/mp problem in the Yak 52.
The tailwind/headwind bug & the tumbling AH in the F-5.
The pitch down/suck down effect in ground effect in the F/A-18.

The tailwind/headwind bug on the F5 still hasn't been officially reported so I don't know of ED are even aware of it. (I'm planning to make another bug report about it with a more concise description of the issue in the next few days and then PM Nineline about it to get him to take a look at the thread.)

The pitch down on the FA-18 will be looked at when ED go back and finish the FM after they have finished some of the more important systems modelling, they've already said this. Its also a pretty simple thing to avoid.

It's a bit maddening to see instruments like the ADF not functional after all these months.

Interesting. How can you avoid to takeoff and land without the ground effect?

Air start, and quitting whilst airborne!

Or you simply work round as best you can until a fix arrives like the rest of us.


Or are you suggesting we all sulk instead? It’s an option, “but therein does not lay the path to enlightenment grasshopper.”

Strange how the F/A-18 is suddenly the subject of discourse in a Yak-52 thread!

I’m guessing the commercial application of the Yak-52 is the reason it exists at all, and I’m also sure ED will need to complete it for their commercial customers benefit, so don’t lose patience or hope. It’s just a question of priorities, which never match our expectations.

Another option is to simply uninstall DCS and to use another sim like I did, to avoid any further frustration with EDs update 'policy'.

Then why are you even bothering to post when you no longer have any interest in the game? Want to poison it for everyone else?

And which other sim are you using? Ace Combat?

Where did I write that? Did you even read my initial reply?
Apparently I post because I'm still hoping and hence I'm checking the forum every few weeks.

@norbot, if you would have read my previous posts you would know that I'm only interested in the flying part of DCS, not the destroying and killing part.
So there are nice and realistic alternatives of course.
