    Thanks for the update. Especially like the improved ground handling. Has anyone else experienced engine suddenly cutting out and surging alternately? I seem to be experiencing it when climbing or under engine load above say, 30 MP. Might be just under load at altitudes above 10k though. Haven’t investigated more than one flight which was in cold conditions ~11°C.

    Oh I love flying this P-38!! so fun!! The Spitfire and P-38 are my absolute favorites to fly! You guys do a great job with these planes!! My uncle was a B-24 pilot, any chance of seeing a Liberator in the future? :)

    Update on my comment regarding tablet use in VR. Removed all mods and add-on folders from community, and tablet does work – so clearly some compatibility issue. I read in patch notes something about changing the naming of tablet and radio to avoid conflicts (which I did not experience in the previous release), unfortunately there remains some incompatibility. If I can pin it down will let you guys know (might be with other tablet functionality from other releases e.g., Milviz Corsair, CRB5/700, DC-6 perhaps?). Apart from that, excellent work and for anyone interested in this release – I highly recommend it.

    In the last couple weeks, the Lightning has quickly become my favorite plane in the sim. The email today about the update was a happy surprise. Can’t wait to download the update and give the new version a spin after work today!

    Good day Gentlemen, and a big bravo! Thanks for a great flying aircraft. These updates are going to make it better yet. I can’t wait to get off work in 9 hours and update her.
