X-Plane Flight Model
We are always being reminded that X-Plane's flight model is really good, but is it? 

I've worked on a number of simulations in my career, all physics based and aiming to replicate the real-world. For X-Plane's flight model to operate as fast as it does, it must be very basic. I suspect they have implemented a model that's about 60% right, any more and then you're in the land of diminishing returns i.e. the increase in realism is not worth the extra computer power required. Just a thought.
