    Hi! I'm just new here. I play Pacific Fighters and I fly the Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero for the IJN. Sometimes when I make a tight turn (90 degree bank) either left or right, the plane stalls and rolls to an inverted position. Is this normal and can anything be done to prevent this? Do I need to make some rudder input even when I'm executing tight turns? Thanks!

    Thanks for the help. Really appreciate it since most of what I've learned about flying is through self-study.
