Yeah, I cut off the testing at 20K -- climb rates for the CoD Spit was painfully slow by 20K.

I don't like the FSX flight engine very much, nor their graphics, even after purchasing the aftermarket enhancements. But I am impressed by the huge detail that A2A put into their Wings of Power 3 aircraft, which includes the flight data of the Spitfire MK1 and MK2. Although I would not say they are the authority for flight data, I wouldn't write them off, either. On this you and I will disagree.

Yes!! +1000! Especially with their latest retail version which finalized some engine settings & effects. It is a challenging plane to fly, but very rewarding. And it has guns, bombs, and rockets! Hear that, A2A? LOL
