So I have been very interested in doing aerobatics, but I have seen an Extra 300 roll REALLY fast to the right and instantly turn to the left. But in FSX when I try to do that it just keeps rolling for a split second. For example: When you do 10 rolls in an Extra 300, Edge 540, MXS-RH or whatever, and you center the controls, you will instantly stop. In FSX I try that and 1. The rollrate of the Extra 300 is WAY too slow in comparison to the real one and 2. When I center the controls, it keeps rolling for a second more, sometimes even when I apply opposite aileron. I just wanted to know if there is any way that someone knows or could possibly make the Extra 300 roll and stop instantly. It seems as if a nice crisp 4 point roll is impossible with that plane. Any edits I could make to the Aircraft.cfg that could make it roll and when I center the controls, it stops? I would be so thankful. Thanks for your time  :lol:

Have you real life experience of flying the Extra 300?

There is a roll damping limitation within FSX.... so you can't replicate it to level necessary for absolute realism in a really fast rolling plane.  With an externally driven FDE you could probably do it...

For aerobatics you can try X-Plane 10. DCS Worlds P51d is also great, but does not have the roll rate of an Extra :-)

Aerofly FS was acceptable, but had some inconsistencies in the FDM of the Extra and Pitts IMO...

If you don't mind me asking, what is an FDE?

I have had experience in an Extra 300L here in Florida, the aircraft rolled and you can feel it stop so crisp and suddenly!

How would I go about getting an external FDE?

 

That's something developer do to overcome FSX limitations. You can do nothing.

In your FSX.CFG file

 

under

[CONTROLS]

Stick_Sensitivity_Mode = 0

 

That should help.

 

I assume you already have realism on high and sensitivity on high and nullzone on lowest setting.

Ok, I'll try that when I can, I hope it helps. In the FSX Red Bull Air Race the roll doesn't seem fast enough to slalom through the chicane. It seems too close together and not possible. If you have any advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It didn't help, my view was limited and I couldn't really see 360 degrees, and my rolls were the same, if not maybe a bit worse, any other suggestions?
