neoqb, Albatros DVa is much slower than your published stats
Posted 07 December 2009 - 19:14
Indeed, I just tested it myself at about 75m altitude and did no better than 170km/h (radiator closed just to be sure). Your own published stats show a speed of 186km/h for the Albatros DVa, FYI. The best TAS for the Albatros DVa is supposed to be at sea level.

Yes, the DVa (and Albatros DIII) are way too slow. I send Petrovich a private message before the release of update 1.008 (late october), he said he would increase that in 1.009 and according to Lefty, they did "increase" (i don't see a difference, maybe 2-3 kph but can't tell from simple gauges) the maximum speed to 170 kph, which is still about 15 kph too slow.
I've no idea why they didn't set that to a realistic value, but whatever. I mean they must know that we don't make a 6-7 page long thread about a 2-3 kph too slow plane. It's a serious problem, probably the biggest FM problem in ROF right now, imho.

Alb DVa -> max speed (level flight) 170kmh
Alb DIIIa -> max speed (level flight) 173kmh
BUT in their store in description say Alb. Dva max speed was 186 kmh…also various infos from the net are around that number….
