    Thanks Sundog your team did an exceptional job all around. I agree the control feel seems spot on (I've never flown a spit :)) , but there are limitations with using a joystick interface as you mention and some limitations within modifications available in the airfile itself, particularly with pitch character. Subjective control of pitch during flight is good, but the nose has a tendency to continue pitch without control input, without damping or oscillation as speed moves away from trimmed speed. If cg and center of lift were so close to exhibit that level of instability, then sensitivity with even small stick movements in a trimmed condition would make control difficult and PIO a problem. I know the real aircraft were light and sensitive in pitch, it just seems a slightly odd mix...

    I can also confirm it works with the above mods in P3D 3.1; it looks very contemporary with perfect dimensions, good animations and sounds, and is especially enhanced with the latest P3D shadowing and accufeel. With a minor .cfg edit is a beautiful flyer. I changed Pitch stability from 1.0 to 2.0 to reduce what seems an odd amount of negative stability, especially noticeable when the nose drops when flying at lower than trimmed airspeed. Pitch moment imparted by elevator control feels good, just stab seemed a bit off. Not a perfect solution, but feels right, and the roll and yaw stability and control effectiveness are suberb. This is (I think) the third time I've bought and download the PD Spit. With mods the interior textures and gauge animations look ok in FSX-SE, but it...
