Perhaps she feels a little lighter? Hard to say. Takeoffs and landings feels the same.

Feels the same to me...........................I'm still grappling with the Spit

I took off and landed it twice out of 2 attempts with no drama in MP. I can hardly taxi the Spit, but I haven't spent much time on it (figuring nav in the MiG-21 right now)

I thought the Dora was the hardest of the game of the modules I use regularly, but the Spit is another level for me at the moment

Perhaps it is just something as simple as having now bought the spit, that my Dora is jealous?

Or more likely, my muscle memory is confused...

I have just revived my Dora after flying Bf-109 almost exclusively, and then putting in some flight hours with the Spit. I must say that the Dora feels better than ever; and landing it feels easier now, after struggling with the Spit which is hard to taxi and to land due to missing tail wheel lock.

I like the Dora however the muzzle flash looks really unpolished, immersion breaker, hopefully it will get addressed.

I've found that landing is easier if I turn off the gun-sight. One less distraction I suppose.

Yes, I also used to dim it. I also used to freeze the TrackIR during the final landing phase. With the TrackIR active, the view tends to jump up and down when you look at the instruments (speed and vertical speed) and that caused me to make involontairy stick movements which didn't help.
With more routine, I leave gunsight and TrackIR alone, but I have to use full concentration to land the Dora.
