As well as astonishing small, have you seen it in person? Ridiculously small, the whole aircraft is.

I regularly take down spitfires with only a few hits with the cannon.

A technique I've started using to counter the 109's lackluster pitch authority to pull out of fast dives is a little cheaty, but it works.
I have the trim bound tpy POV hat, and will try nose high while pulling to get out of the dive. Not really possible with the goofy crank wheel, but, in the words of Travis Haley, if I'm not cheating, I'm not winning.

Yeah.. that's why we all say the trimming is badly implemented in DCS. Those poor bastards would have no chance to save themselves from high speed divings if the trimming was working just like in DCS.

No, I mean I can do in DCS a trick that wouldn't work in the real aircraft, as you couldn't actuate the trim mechanism fast enough in real life, especially given you'd have both hands on the stick.

There are several 109 pilots who have mentioned using the trim in order to pull out of dives, and in a few cases even in dogfights. No reason you couldnt do what you're talking about for real.

The trouble is the trim wheel would be somewhat difficult to get to in certain instances, and would need to be shuttled aft several times to get to the desired trim setting.

if you stood beside one and saw how small the rudder really was, you would understand why..
