no undpilot87 you arent going to get the real flight feeling from this game. for anyone who has sat in behind the stick/yoke it will be quite different and a major let down. it is a game, and you have to approach if from that perspective. if you try to fly these ac from the frame of mind of how real ac react, etc you will simply not do very well. but that being said this game is a lot of fun. first off set your sensitivities to about 1/2 for most ac ( that is what i had to do to get the feel for the game...then start to move them up towards full). the 109s are the most stable, so fly the G6 to start and play with the others from there. the 51s are bricks, some of the spits stall like you said way too easy. the game is flawed. if you are playing ps3 then you have 2 different controls to adjust with xbox only 1. dont get discouraged though. actually this is the best non PC air combat game that you can get right now on console. hook up with some of the boys who play the system you do and learn to fly all over again. and you are best off trying real or sim ( there you have flap (10%ish) controls) difficulties. arcade will simply just really frustrate and totally piss you off.. if you are on xbox let me know and we will set up a time and fly around together until you get your gamewings.

I had the the same problem when I was trying to run with the big dogs and using purist settings. Ratman set me straight however and told me to change my elevator settings to something more manageable, and now it is a completely different and more enjoyable game. Good luck

Thats funny because last night I went back to the game and tried fiddling with the settings again and presto! I realized that I was actually adjusting something else besides the sensitivity. I am playing on the PC and there are a lot of different things you can adjust to get the sensitivity where you want it. Anyways I got my stick set up so that if I pull all the way back it will stall but not quite all the way and it will continue flying. After I got it figured out I started on ahh nuts at Bastogne and played through till the end, I was up until 330. Anyway its weird that they have the Spitfire being less maneuverable than other a/c because an elliptical wing is known to be the most efficient wing. I just wish the developers had talked to people that do fly a/c, they're not hard to find.

cool. the only thing with the sensitivities low is the ac is slower to react. so when you get into online dogfights it is a disadvantage. you wont turn or roll as crisp as the guy on your 6 or the one whose 6 you are on. i flew that way for a long time just to ge the feel for things. then i started to slide them towards full a notch or 2 at a time. if you are dissapointed with the way the spit handles you are really going to be upset when you fly the 51s and 190s...haha

Yea the P-51 on the highest sensitivity is pretty much not flyable. Now if they can just figure out cliffs of dover I can go play a real flight simulator.

You broke them by flying too fast.
