    What a horrbile thing to fly

    Never ever experienced anything so effected by speed variations in terms of lift.......no matter what speed I did it was different all the time.......try to drop your nose....speed increase.......lifted the nose to the moon.....

    slow speed....holding it the air involved carrying the damn thing on my back.....

    never ever again.... although it landed like a dream..how wide are those wheels?

    Yeah it was online...I took out a bomber and got home and he left the game

    Life huh...

    What plane do I mean......?

    Now your learning

    keep your throttle wide open, don't try to turn with ANYTHING

    and no one can touch you

    tell ya what.....the engine was built like a brick out house It was on max for ages......probably the hardest plane Ive tried. No kidding.

    With lift like that I guess it would carry bombs pretty well. It was quite slow until into a dive..but then keeping itin a dive was SO hard.

    It confused me a lot....I guess I have lots of practice to do if I wanna be a German

    I take it, Skii, that you like the plane. Tellme.....whats it good at? Oh by the way......canons

    oh...one thing I just remembered.....it did have bad visibility BUT it could invert after a climb and hang in the air better than everything I've flown....so it DID have a benefit I guess........gave me a chance to see the TB3 to have another go....

    BUT.......how do you trim a plane that has different attack angles on the air at every differnet speed.....I tried it at 250.....got it OK (although it rolled clockwise more that most)....and then it gently gained speed....and was nose up again.....retimmed....etc etc...

    and another German off-set gun sight..whats with the German gunsight thing? I had to use the toggle gunsight more than in any Russian plane. Like the ME109 .Weird

    Basically it will outrun and out climb most other aircraft. It will stay at full throttle and WEP as long as or longer than any Russian fighter, its heavily armoured and has ridiculously powerful armament.

    Zakk - you hit the nail on the head, it hangs in the air.

    You use all of its speed to climb, your assailant will try to follow you, but he will stall first.

    As your nose drops you line him up and unleash hell. Then you repeat to desired effect.

    If you get into trouble, point the nose down and plant the throttle, - you will leave your opponent behind, and extend long enough to come right back at him with 4 x 20mm cannon.

    It rolls twice as fast as any other plane, you can flip a 190 onto any axis and pull back on the stick in a blink of the eye, bloody hard work for the Yak behind trying to line you up.

    Its a pure b n' z machine in every sense of the word, used properly its unbeatable, but if you try to turn with your opponent, yeah, its a pig.

    Spitfires were ripped apart by 190s when they first appeared, not because they could turn better, far from it. The 190s would come screaming in with guns blazing, only to rocket upwards and come back down again repeating the process, the Spits couldn't deal with this type of dogfighting, all the tight turning in the world would just result in them floundering as the 190 came thundeing down again.

    Rest assured, after UBI get their arses into gear and release the patch, the 190A series will rule the skies

    K...I'll keep my arse in one of those when I'm playing on the German side

    Its a bugger to fly though.....still..most stuff interesting is hard. I'd never buy a classic car that was easy to drive...

    You've hit the nail on the head there, pretty much any plane in the world will need trimming at different speeds, some more noticeably than others.

    Don't forget that trim is affected by the airflow over the wings and tail plane, the faster you go the more air flowing over the wings therefore the more need to compensate for lift with trim.

    In the real world after the trim wheel is the fourth control, rarely left alone for longer than five minutes.

    The best way to use it to set the throttle, use pitch to attain the attitude/airspeed you want then use trim to set the controls so you don't have to touch them to have the airspeed/attitude you want.

    In techy car terms, its cruise control, yeah?
