Oleg never included the WER settings of the P-40 or any of the Zeros and probably just imposed the same limitation on the grummans.
P-40s are missing about 300hp under 5-8000ft, Zeros are missing about 120hp for take off, etc.
It's a very big job to redress all these individual aircraft, as you do some the others all stand out more. Eventually the job is to go through every single FM in the entire sim/game using good info like the documentation at above mentioned site.

I no longer have time to be a modder, but when I've dipped into fm modding in the past, it was always a very huge task before anyone doing it. People have been working on it plane by plane for years, there are so many it is still going to take many years, we'll be old men when we finally say, ah IL2 is completely finished now

Apparently, the F6F FM will be revised in the TD 4.12 patch.

The hellcat with the stock FM is a loser. Try flying the F6F-6 mod. You can pork it with fuel/stores to tweek it a bit. Works for me.

I agree, better the FM gurus here cook something up than waiting for TD.

Zero seems to retain too much 'e,' but that is for another thread...lol
Maybe it's not so much then that the US F4F and F6F need some tune-up, but the Zero series needs a bit of a tone-down aswell? (In terms of; getting looked into, the least)

One of the things that U.S. pilots testing the first captured A6M2 noted was that it didn't have a constant flow carburetor, so the engine would cut out if you flew inverted for any period of time - just like the early Spitfire versions. AFAIK, that's not modeled in the game.

True, true. I'm not sure why it was left out, I've noticed that feature on other non-carburetor aircraft (mainly the MC 200).

I always use 100% fuel for testing.  It would be a bit silly not to.

I haven't flown the new 4.11 Hellcat yet.  Supposedly they did some work on the Hellcat FM.  I'm curious to see what you guys think of the new 4.11 Hellcats.

It does seem to perform better.  At least in climb.  I can't say for sure for the other characteristics, other than increased stabililty.
