The Bf-109 was notorious for whacking rookie pilots during takeoff/ landing because of its narrow wheelbase and high torque. Use rudder and aileron at about 50% power for takeoff. Good luck!

    @XPERIM no prob. I took some screenshots of vectors at different aoa's/ speeds etc. I'll post them somewhere. Another thing that might help is the propeller blade doesn't travel at the same velocity down its length. You'll see propellers twisted so the entire blade has roughly the same alpha at its optimum speed. Most aircraft of the era had constant speed (rpm) props. The pitch of the blade would change and not the speed of the prop. I tried a few different ways of having the electric motor 'on off' at a set rpm and varying the pitch with throttle. Problem is that there are too many connections and they all like to rubber band. Increasing joint stab just makes it worse. I have a Bf-109F and a Bf-109Z with more aggressive blade pitch/twist but they're harder to control. I should post them probably

    @anjulmusic It wasn’t the spin that surprised me, it was that there was absolutely no transition from the use of rudder to the typical rolling before a spin, it literally causes the aircraft to fling around on its horizontal axis without any rolling, causing the spin stall.

    As for its speed, I found using a m/s to kph conversion program I made with Vizzy that it’s stall speed with flaps is 70 kph (18 m/s), and that is super slow, even for a Cessna aircraft, and a top speed of 350 kph, at least 150 kph slower than in reality. Might be realistic for the Bf-109 B model, but pretty epic slowness indeed.

    Edit: How did you get it to fly on a electric motor? I’m curious because a few other propeller designs use jet engines, and replacing them with the motors I found the motors speed the aircraft (eg, a Flying Boxcar made by someone else today that I modified with 2 motors) up to 30 m/s but not more. Also it is possible to disable lift physics on the wings not primarily used for flight which would improve the speed issue, but having a stall speed 7 kph slower than a Cessna 150 is insane for a fighter 4-5 times heavier (a Cessna 150 with an empty weight of 500kg, this with 2400kg)

    Using full rudder during flight causing a spin doesn't surprise me. If you're in a spin, try opposite rudder and pull stick back while at full throttle. It's a single prop monoplane but the torque can cause some unexpected behavior

    This truly has to be one of the strangest flying aircraft I’ve ever flown. It is obviously completely silent, but it has such bizarre flight qualities such as being able to fly straight up when you full throttle after cutting it and nearly stalling, and any full use of yaw puts it into a flat spin easier than it is to take off.
