After testing the Dr1 is much better. It performs well and is more stable. The Camel however is too sluggish. It can't outclimb the Pup and doesn't turn much better than the Pup either. It does regain speed better though and is faster in level flight.

The new Camel acts more like a Snipe. It should have better turning ability and is too fast.

I just tested the new Camel you sent. The Camel was a turning fighter. This one certainly is not. I couldn't out turn an SE5. If this plane has been "dumbed down" then all of the other aircraft need to be tweaked accordingly.

Rgr... Some of the other aircraft may need toning down... But I will work on the turn rate. Smile

The latest Camel is much better. Turns and rolls well. It doesn't feel as sluggish as the previous FMs.

Excellent! It should still be a challange to down a Dr.1a in, but now I believe you have a fighting chance. Smile Is it release worthy?

I just tested the Camel against the Pup, SE5 and the DVII. I'd say it's good to go.

Excellent! I will await words from DDT before I do as he also has been working very closely with me on this. Smile
