Please, don’t take this as raw criticism, but as a constructive one.
I hadn’t flown a C172 IRL for 7 years until last week, as I’ve been flying jets since then. I was astonished with how off the flight dynamics of the C172 are on MSFS in comparison to the real thing. This is specifically true during takeoffs and landings. Other times, physics are ok, as aerodynamic damping is stronger as IAS increases. But the lack of left turning tendencies, lack of adverse yaw and last but not least the absolutely unrealistic stability at low speeds during takeoffs and landings make this sim a game, very arcade. I love the graphics, beautiful, but the sim is still a game in relation to flight dynamics. As I’ve said before in other topics, you can approach the C172 on MSFS without touching the rudder and ailerons in basically any winds condition, especially with no mountains nearby. This is impossible IRL if the wind is anything but calm.
I have over 1000h on the RL C172 and MSFS did not help me retain the handling for it at all after 7 years away from the 172.
I dream of having a sim with MSFS’s graphics and XP11 dynamics. Asobo, scenery is already fine! Focus on dynamics a bit!
Note: I do have saitek rudder pedals and a CH yoke.
