Its the retraining part that's a pain...After months of practicing carrier landings with the old model the new changes are really noticeable. I am starting to get used to it but I figure I have a few more days of practicing to get back to where I was at on the previous model.

yep - more anticipation needed for power reduction on roll-out. That was getting me for a bit.

It seems nearly every comment here on the FM is related to landing. Is anyone else doing edge of the envelope aerobatics, wvr gunzo dogfighting, etc.? I'd be curious to see, if so, what people are finding with the FM changes.

Easier to get stable and trimmed for air refueling, in my case.

So my having issues keeping the nose from rising to 30° after dropping gear and flaps is an issue with the FM?

If not, how is the pilot supposed to bleed off the excess speed while keeping the plane from rocketing up 500 ft before he has to turn for final approach?

I'm not sure how to describe it, but it seems the instantaneous rate has gone up while the sustained rate has gone a bit down. I'm probably wrong though

No, I think you've described it well. Energy bleed in turns below 400 kts seems really excessive now. Though it feels more like inst. rate is the same while sust. has dropped. Not sure...and I could be off base anyway. Again, this latest FM iteration may be morerealistic, but it sucks as the low speed handling was/is one of the few things the Hornet has going for it (minus 9x w/ HMD ) in wvr dogfighting.

I find there is much more inertia in the airplane response to power application.. especially throttling down, the airplane doesnt lose altitude as immediately as it used to do.
(talking about landing operations)

me too. requires throttling down really early before the roll out and a prompt reapplication of power afterward.
