Just finished my first flights with it...Me likey! Very Much!(forget that it's one of my all time favorite aircraft) Seems to handle well.(though it's a bit too twitchy in the yaw axis, imho, like most of the BoS/BoM planes. Why everything has to handle like a P-39, I can't fathom. but I digress...)
Still it's got, trim on all axis's, all those guns, big cockpit, good visibility, cup holders, AM/FM stereo, 8 track tape player, devastating good looks, what more could you want? It's a chick magnet!!!
Best of all it lands much easier than the Lagg for me.(a key factor for my survival!)
Now if they'd just get going on all the rest of the missing lend lease stuff; Hurri, Spit, P-39, A-20, B-25...they've got a lot to do.
