I know the A-4 is very 'roll sensitive' but did that seem excessive to you?

It looked a bit excessive to me however, we don't have any idea what kind of stick he has or what the curves (or lack of) he had set up. I doubt very seriously that the A-4 was that "twitchy". I also don't know anything about what type of control system the Scooter had. Was it mechanical, hydro-mechanical or fully hydraulic? I do know that the Scooter had a reputation for a very high roll rate.

It's good to see they have the carrier and Air Refueling worked out as well

Yes indeed, however I am having a hellova time with control mapping and have decided to put this away until they update it a little more. It will make a nice addition to the Forestal class CV that HB is going to put out  :thumbsup:
