    I'm not an expret or some one with alot of experience in the flying field but I know that I love the P51H. My bud hooked me up with it and a personal skin to match and it was set in stone. Don't know if anyone else likes it but as for me, that crate is a God Sent Item. Just a thought.

    oh yes, that is a good looking crate.

    I was wondering if anyone else has flown the H?

    that was my bad. The "H" is the P-51d-nt. I was still stuck in CFS3 but soo very much like that crate. It's nimble, easy on the pilot and can lay down the smack when needed. But that's just my personal observation.

    Set your convergence to 125M and practice firing only at convergence. Those 6 fifties don't chop birds in half like a FW or Tempest, but you'll almost always cut some controls or smoke an engine in a single pass.

    Also, fly with considerable nose-down trim. You'll shed fewer wings at high speed that way. ;)

    Great advice! I love the P-51D. The climb rate is awesome and it is fast. You are right about the armament, it is good.
