Default Roll reversal

Hi,

New to the Spitfire and warbirds in general.

I am experiencing some heavy roll reversal while manoeuvering.
I try to be gentle on the stick, easy with the elevators and don't take too much AoA but still struggling to fly decently (needless to say the AI FW is flying like an eagle).

Any suggestions?

Suggestion #1: Don't look at the AI. They use a different flight model, use different physics and fly perfect.

Suggestion #2: Give us a few more details like: How much did you pull at which altitude with which speed? This way we can give you proper suggestions.

I was flying between 10-13000 feet, speed 200-240 mph no less than 170 mph, I pulled 3-5G.

I find it quite difficult to maintain a low AoA while turning, bad habit with the jets maybe (I had the same with the F-14).

I can post a tacview file, don't know if it's gonna be of some help.

I can fly fine without any curves. But I'd say try it with and see if you like it.

I do. Curves at 15, a tiny bit of deadzone.

Sounds like you're wing stalling. It's really easy for new pilots in the Mustang to do, but not impossible for the Spitfire.
My advice, don't pull so hard, or so fast and so hard. Also, coordinate your turns. It's amazing how much tighter you can turn a plane with just a little bit of rudder to keep the ball (or needle for the Spitfire) centered.
