I know the Pony was supposed to have a "laminar flow" wing, but I don't know what airfoil it had exactly. What I do know is that some of the uncambered 6-series NACA airfoils at low thickness/chord ratios have some relatively poor Clmax numbers. I'm assuming that someone knows the airfoil used on the Pony, and also the t/c ratio for the wing.
If my above thoughts are true, can it be safe to assume that the airfoil shape/type may have one of the reasons that the Pony's slow speed turn performance in the game is comparitively poor?
From a general aviation perspective, I know Mooney's and Grumman's with 6-series airfoils have some quirky/poor slow-speed handling and stall characteristics, even though they use 15% t/c with design lift coefficients of .4. If the Pony used a thinner airfoil with less camber, seems like it may suffer drag penalties at slower speeds or high AoA maneuvers.
(I've been geeking out on airfoil books lately)...
