190 is easier to take off and land. 109 is much easier to dogfight. I have both.

Although coopes is online quite a bit and he loves the 190 so if you are looking to fly with someone

109 Handles almost too well in a dogfight, the thing can just scrap and has the armament to boot. The 190 is a much smoother plane to fly in general with its huge control surfaces, but and absolute bitch manouvering under its optimal turning speeds. Snap wing stalls are common to a beginner. In short 109 for easy mode turn and burn hang on prop no problem, 190 for earning your boom and zoom prestige; because you really don't want to turn in it. Ever. Unless you are fighting a P51 pilot that doesn't use flaps. :nuts: :B:

Even if they drop flaps, you can pull lead into a p51, if done right :joyman:

But yeah, As a spit driver you will probably prefer the 109 over the 190.

I had been telling Hitler for over a year, since my first flight in an Me-262, that only Focke Wulf Fw-190 fighter production should continue in conventional aircraft, to discontinue the Me-109, which was outdated, and to focus on building a massive jet-fighter force. - Galland
Any idiot could fly a Spitfire, but it took a lot of training to fly a 109. - Gerald Stapleton
