Unreal roll rate with aileron limiter OFF


Recommended Posts

I keep forgetting just how fast F-5E rolls with aileron limiter OFF. Its unreal fast. Like A-4E-C if you keep rolling, you go into GLOC and spin into ground. Neither Viper nor Hornet, empty Harrier, or empty Mirage2KC rolls that crazy.

You got any documents saying it is not like this? 

 

It is not the only Airplane that rolls fast. 

 

Mirage (without limiter), MiG-21 and the A-4 roll fast too.

I didn't it was unrealistic. Likely it is. Its just so quick, that it does not seem real. In a good way.

Ha, unreal, but not unrealistic.  Subtle!

Not only due to GLOC, also due to aerodynamic reasons e.g. consecutive aileron rolls are a no-go on many combat aircraft, e.g. the F-15.
