First of all I installed file *_104 so this is version I'm referring to.

Ok, there are lots of things wrong with flight model of this plane especially flaps work, but can You please do something with pitch response to throttle? This one is killing fun to fly this plane on FSX.

I've flown so far 4 different Cessnas with my PPLA and believe me when You give power, real plane gives response to that.....and response is immediate and strong. Nose is going up or going down, simple. Especially while landing it is crucial. Flaps model to land of this plane is NOT good and if any real world pilot is claiming differently then I don't know what to say. But even though it is wrong it can be at least compensated by throttle work........which now is also wrong.

I beg do something with the response to throttle increment/decrement defectiveness

For the most recent release, I worked with multiple C152 pilots including at least one instructor. The flaps were the main area we looked at, they went through multiple revisions before we ended up with the current setting which was agreed on by all as being as close to realistic as we're likely to get (both in terms of pitch reaction and drag). Indeed, the reaction of one was that it perfectly matched the experience he has with his club's 152.

With regard to the throttle response, there is no setting within the fde for pitching motion specifically caused by thrust. We are reliant on the sim to calculate that movement. For the initial release (with the engine correctly situated) it gave a pitch down motion with power added before gradually rising. To mitigate this, I have moved the engine's position to below where it should be by approximately half a foot and this has given a slight nose-up movement with thrust increase. However, if the position is taken further away from its correct location it starts to affect many other areas of the flight model and that is not acceptable.

Interestingly, the TB10 and TB20 have a much better pitching response to throttle with the same basics and the engine in the correct place - I think it is possibly down to how the sim deals with high wing v low wing.
