@JB and Hellshade, also try an inverted dive with engine idle, if possible, since the top wing is sturdier. I do this sometimes in FE2 but have yet to try it out in a Nieup. in WOFF.
I always idle the engine whenever I dive and often try and go down on a bit of a sideways angle if possible, but haven't tried inverted yet. Might give that a go....or might just let them get away. Flying for hours on my Nieuport pilot so trying not to be over eager for the kill. Only 1 EIII to his name so far,
