In this video you can see very often how he is unable to keep the nose in a straight line, it is always pumping up and down.

What makes it so difficult to fly precisely is that it feels like 95% of the stick travel is for trim, and 5% are actually used for the full maneuvering around the trim center.

When landing, tiny movements of the stick make the plane go up and down by alot, which makes it harder to touch down smoothly than with any another plane.


Not sure if this is correct or not, but this is the simple reason why the MiG is so weird to fly in DCS.

Well, that may be just tuning the controls to your liking, this is why warbird pilots swear by extensions, etc. the controls on our desktop will never match the real thing, but the FMs were built with real controls in mind, it's our job as virtual pilots to get it to where we want it. It's like that for every module, but more or less depending on the aircraft.

No, it's not right. If you take a look at the trim chart, you can see that in subsonic range very small (but reverse - pulling with increased IAS) stick movement required.

Instinct and intuition are different things and are causing different reactions.
Especially considering the startle and surprise effect when entering an unintentional spin at very low altitude and the danger of immediate death.
This has very little to do with stupidity etc.
