Where do most of you have the sliders positioned for the sensitivity and null zones of the ailerons, elevators, throttle and rudders in the settings screen?

In my opinion the planes in this sim bleed speed like they hit a brick wall in the sky. Furthermore, I can't get any American plane to approach max cruising speed let alone max speed unless I hit water injection and dive.
And the P-38 seems to be a brick with no turning ability at all even at low altitude where it could hold it's own with FW190's in the European campaign. This plane in particular seems to be caught in the grip of compressiblity without even diving from a great height and building up speed.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

OK; stick control set on simple. Flight sensitivity set at 90 percent; null zone set at 10 percent. Gives a real nice feel. Man, that essex class carrier is pretty big isn't it. Have trouble catching the wire on it; but can still stop using full brake if I miss the wires.

Try using the Wells flight models. They seem a little more realistic to me in terms of bleeding speed.

I have the sensitivities all the way up for airlerons, about midway for the elevators and almost all the way down for the rudder. I use no null zones except on the rudder because I have a twist stick control for it and it's easy to inadvertantly twist it a little. I've never really understood why people use null zones for elevator and ailerons.

Try Wells' FM 1.6. It was posted today on another topic. It seems to have increased the power and overall speed of the planes.
