    I really wish the guys at CAC took good pictures of the J-20 doing rolls and turning manoeuvres during the 4th and 5th flight. We could put a lot of this B.S. to rest had we gotten good footages.

    Sorry guys but IMO this discussion on FCS, maneouvrability .... and the comparison of Western to Russian air show performances leading even further to guessworks, if the J-10 or J-20 can do the same and if this is good or bad should be continuued in a seperate tread but not in the J-10 or J-20-treads which should be related to news.

    I just found that at the "Secret-Projects Forum" but I can't say anything about its reliability ... :confused:

    To all members. >>> I've asked you all to discuss the J-20 in a civil manner. Let us do so. I've deleted several post which I feel are unnecessary arguments and personal attacks. The J-20 is a very important development in Chinese military aviation. We will continue to discuss the J-20 withing the parameters of the rules of SDF.

    FORUM RULES: Things to Remember Before Posting, important, please read!

    do not respond to this post or any admonition by a moderator. If you do so your post will be deleted. And a warning may be issued.

    Here a nice summary at the CDF made by "pierrotlefou"

    Actually I have that strange feeling that there's something "fishy" ... .

    As such I would say it sounds too good (performance wise) to be true and as far as I know the WS-15 is an indigenous design - maybe with Russian assistance as some sources suggest - but not based on a Russian design.
