Firstly I must say that I have all the Bear Studio aircraft and am very pleased with them. There are a couple of questions though that I have.

Firstly, the roll rate of the MiG 15. I'm basing this largely on Koren War anecdotes, but it was well known that the MiG 15 had a noticeably lower roll rate than the F 86 Sabre. The estimate is about two thirds the roll rate. The Sabre could roll about 180 degrees a second. In the Bear Studios MiG 15, the roll rate seems to be about equal to that. The MiG 15 would be outclassed in a turning fight because the Sabre could weave left and right quickly, while the MiG 15's roll rate was too slow to match the Sabre.  The roll rate of the MiG 15 seems too great in the sim. A roll rate of about 120 degrees a second would seem more accurate, if the Korean War information is anything to go by.

Secondly, I find the f 7 Skybolt very difficult to land. 22 degrees of full flap isn't a great deal, and I find I have to keep power at about 90-95 military thrust during the descent. Is this normal, or is there a better landing procedure I should follow?
