Some good reading here...All in all I'm alright with the 109 they gave us here in game...the one thing that I would like to see worked on is the brakes. I have read that the aircraft had no tendency to be nose heavy when applying them

It is common that before you fly new type of plane you ask more experience pilots about some tips and it is something like pilots code which is understandable for another pilot.

F-35 reaches 5,000 hours of testing

Let me just get this perfectly clear: Are you two suggesting that there are aspects of flight dynamics that are not possible to quantify?

Yes or no?

I don't have a problem with the material; I just think that a more accurate picture would be painted if we collated as much hard data as possible.

I don't get what you are aiming at with all this. How about simply taking Buzzsaw's advice and forget about getting into some grandstanding debate about the value of what has been posted here, and whether the reports are of any value because they are not full of hard data. If you want 100% hard data, find flight test reports that have been written by robots.

To what point, honestly? They are not going to change it. There are no more patches. If they eff it up in the sequel, then we can have a 500 page debate. This is just more beating the dead horse.

Pilot Accounts (combat reports) provide good data with regards to flying qualities and tactics..

For example:

"I felt a slight buzz in the stick just prior to the stall".
"The plane gave no warning in the form of a shutter or stick buzz prior to the stall"

But Pilot Accounts (combat reports) provide little if any data with regards to aircraft performance let alone realitive performance.

We know this to be true, in that for every Bf109 'pilot account' that says he was able to out turn a Spitfire, there is a Spitfire 'pilot account' that says he was able to out turn a Bf109.

Therefore Pilot Accounts should be the last, if ever, data used to justify a change to the flight model performance wise.

In short see sig

In the end most gamers have a preconceived idea of how their favorite mount "should" perform and will pick and choose at will between flight data and pilot accounts depending on what supports there case best.

Meanwhile if you want a HUGE collection of anecdotes and historical assessments of the 109 from pilots of both sides have a look here:

A good balance would be pilot reports and hard data - that way you get the idea of the flight qualities, plus the analysis of hard data.
