    Default F6F Bugged?

    I was flying my American lineup, and when I flew my F6F (not fully upgraded), I realized that it could turn insanely fast. I could out turn spitfires and could get into a successful dogfight with a zero. I'm guessing this is a bug, but could it possibly be intentional?

    I don't know if it's a bug or broken flight model...all I know, which you could probably tell from my signature, is that I LOVE IT!

    It was made to counter the zero in pacific operations and it did just that, but its Gaijin and most likely the model is broken or OVER balanced.

    I love this plane, but it has always been hard to fly. Not much better than a P-47
    Looks like they finally got the FM closer to how it was IRL. I don't think it's a bug.
    What NavyAv8r said is true. It was designed to fight with Zeros. It is basically a souped up F4F with a bigger
    engine and more maneuverability. I think Gaijin finally did something right with a FM.
    Be careful when doing hammerheads though. Full left rudder can initiate a stall spin even in arcade.

    It is fine. You can do some sweet turning if you have the speed. Nothing wrong with that, it could. You just need to keep that speed up. If you get caught turning too much and losing speed, especially at low altitude they will outturn you. Donīt rely on that turning (too much). You are still faster and should rely on that and possibly the odd fast turn back to get guns on the target - if you know you have a good opportunity and can still get off if you miss.

    Yes Hellcats were there to counter the Zeroes and it did it very well (19:1 K/D-ratio). But it was also a lot due to tactics.
    Hellcats couldnīt just get stuck in and expect to win - the Zeroes did for example outclimb the Hellcats up to about 5000m and still outturns it at low speeds.

    I took some test flying in Arcade mode on a RB map yesterday (to see what I can do to minibases in the ground derping mode). I think it felt fine. Well, it is great, but I would hardly call it bugged. It used to be very sluggish and weird in some ways so I am glad if it is actually real good now. Leave it alone..

    Mine is fine I guess it's a gaijin problem as normal
