Ugh, you guys want to make a flightsim and you don't even understand the basics of flight??? ;)

Or is this the new way to stop the SE5a from going up all the time? :)

I see your problem, that woman on your port wing should be slung on the under carrage. She has at least 2 20kg bombs on her chest.

No I rather meant that banking will be rather difficult with all ailerons pointed down 8-)

Maybe they function like "Flaperons" Using the ealerons like a crude set of flaps. If they lower them slightly it increases the lift slightly.

The "droop" on the SE5 ailerons is yet another fine detail that Neoqb has captured in their high-fidelity flight model!


Ive not seen any other WW1 Flight Sim include this real rigging feature for the SE5 ailerons.

He means that the ailerons "sagging" on an SE5a at rest is almost as iconic as the hump on the Camel. (they all did it, very much a known characteristic)

Maybe they designed the ingame elevator to match that picture as well.
