    Does anyone have a graph that plots the Hurricane's roll? The only ones I've seen are in the Hurricane Flying Qualities NACA document, and those aren't the standard miles per hour/degrees per sec charts.

    I started to convert some pb/2V graphs, but my head started to hurt.

    Thanks for any help.

    I just pulled this down

    Roll Rate:
    150mph: 5.0s
    200mph: 3.9s
    250mph: 4.3s
    300mph: 5.4s
    350mph: 7.6s
    400mph: 12.2s


    off here

    Thanks Colin, but I'm pretty sure those figures are from the computer game Warbirds. A great game—and one that strived for realism—but a game nonetheless.

    Thanks though.

    bletts,

    This NACA report compares roll rates of the P-36, P-40, Spitfire Hurricane, and whilst it doesn't include a full chart of their roll rates, it does give the maximum achieved for a given stick force for each at a specific airspeed.

    So it might be of some use to you!
