The ONLY flight model change (THAT INCLUDES ENGINES)  in anything was the web bug fix. I.E. there was not supposed to be infinite # of wep cycles on all planes.

And how many WEP cycles or minutes total do we have now?

Each plane was always written independently, so it depends on which plane.The bug was a global code bug not a data issue. Planes with consumables should only have 1, unless a shorter duty cycle was defined in the manual. All other planes I would have to look.

You don't consider the prop pitch governor lag a flight model change?

While technically it is a change, it's so minor in the effect it has on any performance , I think of it as simply a sound effect change.

But your correct that is a change in the model.

What does it mean in terms of flight, some lag in throttle inputs / responsiveness?


Better a bloody good fight and a loss than no fight at all.

It changes the snap roll. Less yaw. Watch your rpm and listen to the sound change.

I've seen this in 109s, 190s, maybe others and been accused of it in Yaks. Planes seem to snap instantly through 90 degree roll changes.

Reminds me of GHI's "defensive manuever"....just got to hit him or slow down enough to stay behind him....definitely looks laggy and make it hard to hit

I'm really curious why you believe there is less yaw?

Don't confuse what you see the other guys do with flight modeling. Net lag and intermittentcy can do strange things.

HiTech

For the record, I wasn't referring to the flight model in my post.  I specifically stated the the visual representation appeared off, which of course could be lag related.

It varies with distance; the further away, the less frequent.
