Just tested it this evening.
As i only know Tiny combat arena since yesterday i might be wrong but I feel like with this flight model it's more about energy management. I like it.
The way planes behave at slow speed with the older fm is too far from reality for me.
So i would say that i prefer this new fm.
In my opinion adding a cockpit view with only the hud would help to test the fm.
By the way i really love the desert map, just one thing, flying over the white areas is difficult, i can appreciate how close to the ground i am.
And i miss a compass to know where i am.
Well that's all for now,
Thanks for sharing your work, i really like this game!
