    109K roll rate

    I haven't purchased DCS yet and I was wondering what the 109K roll rate was like? I love Cliffs of Dover-Desert Wings 109s

    Roll rate is comparable but it's the speed of the thing that makes it pretty much untouchable if u have the height to use it in. IMO anyway.
    System specs:
    Gaming laptop: Metabox P750ZM, CPU Intel i7-4790K @ 4GHz, GTX 980m with 8Gb DDR5 VRAM, 16Gb Dual channel DDR3 RAM, 2 x Samsung EVO 840 500Gb SSDs, Win10 Home 64bit.

    Gaming PC: Asus Rampage III Gene mobo, i7 960 3.2Ghz cpu (running at 3.8Ghz), Noctua dual HS & fan cpu cooler, 24GB Kingston 1600mhz triple channel ram, Samsung EVO 500GB SSD, Corsair 750w psu, EVGA GTX 1070 6GB vram vid card, Windows 10 Pro 64bit.

    The 109K above 8.5 km can run very fast without MW-50 (turn it off). Below it, it can run very fast with it.
    And it can do loops with its powerful engine. So you can bounce enemies and also dogfight (below 6 km and thereabouts) even with a Spit. Just stay in the vertical.

    Without MW-50 the K-4 is a fat pig that can’t really do anything well in normal altitudes. Except flying straight and fast above 8.5 km. Then expect your left wing to drop all the time when turning.

    Roll rate is ok if you get yourself in a scissors fight or need to split S quickly. It is good enough for that then. Otherwise you don’t really need to roll too much at max rate.

    The 109 locks up quite quickly above 600 km there, so watch out for that when diving on someone. Mustangs and Spits have a lot of pitch authority and will just chandelle away from you if they see you soon enough while you shoot through like a freight train.

    I think I have a problem with an out dated system at this moment but this will be cured in a few months. I notice especially when trying anything dealing with bombers things get unplayable. Also fun things seem to be on the channel map witch seems to be harder on FPS than the Normandy map. I've updated the old system witch plays Cliffs and IL-2 BOS maxed out well but DCS is a total different thing. I've been watching all the reviews on what I want by the long haired dude who really knows his stuff and trashes things if he thinks it's sub par

    Tech Jesus is great! I also based my decisions for the upgrade mostly on his reviews.
    I initially got a 10600k and switched to the 10850k hoping for better VR performance in DCS. I‘ll have to wait a bit longer until their engine optimizations come along.
