Can we expect it in 1.021? 1.022? If all it involves is changing the deflection, without any further tweaking, could it be done right away, pretty please? :)

1.022

Probably a dumb question, but I assume this means both the V.II and V.IIF?

So with the 1.021b - hotfix and this:
2. Fokker D.VII/D.VIIF ailerons deflection is now symmetric (+23/-23)

Had anyone already time to see how the changes effect the DVII/DVIIF?

It makes quite a difference, when manouvering at low speeds the plane is a lot more responsive and less "stubborn" when changing directions since the adverse yaw is much reduced and less energy is bled.

The D.VII has now become a real alternative to the other Mercedes-equipped planes and the D.VIIF is even more superior than it was before.

I flew the new D7 yesterday and it seemed much better! here's the thing I can't wrap my head around though; The D7f doesn't seem that much better. So why does the D7 seem like a new plane to me?

I suppose the D.VIIF was powerful enough before to compensate for the higher drag and bleed the higher deflection caused before while the D.VII was not. But eve nthe D.VIIF became quite sluggish at slow speeds and reluctant to fly scissors which also changed now.
