I think that Vidal and Shadow Wolf have part of the solution for you. Many planes, including the stock MS CFS 2 aircraft, don't use lift in the flaps as that confuses the AI performance for some reason.
Given that, I usually keep stock planes with stock flight models for AI use and then use a properly built air file for the player planes. I'm able to then get off of the decks, especialy, if as noted above, you have your CV steaming at 28 to 30 knots into the wind. Setting wind up is best done in the Mission Builder.
The green ghost gauge can be set up to act as a catapult or super WEP, but it's been a while since I've used it. Perhaps one of our more nautically inclined members can fill you in on that. If not, instructions come with the gauge. It used to be available here, but if it's AWOL, you can get it at the larger sites.
