I was testing this guy with just one engine and man did it handle nicely. I had the tanks almost empty but I had no problem flying with one engine.

I suppose flying this guy on one engine is like flying on a couple Merlins, which is still a fair bit of power. After feathering the other props it flew almost straight ahead with very little need for the rudder. I was quite impressed.

I guess thats some of the reason you like this plane so much, being its so dynamic like that. For me just playing around with the physics/flight modeling and seeing what different planes can do in extreme situations is part of the fun I have with FSX.
