While using the stock C172SP under version 11.26, I've noticed some flight dynamics aren't emphasized enough:

1. Lack of Ground Effect during landings.

2. Lack of Vertical Component of Lift, making it impossible to perform Intentional (Forward) slip, or feeling it regained during roll out from (steep) turns.

3. Lack of Heading Indicator instrument lag during turns by Half of the Bank rule of thumb.

Is there a plan to change those characteristics in the following versions ?


Love your Sim!

Hi! We are working to improve some of the things that you mentioned. I would recommend that you try updating to the 11.30 beta and selecting "Use Experimental Flight Model" in settings to try this out. Thanks!
