I flew the P-47 yesterday and got an unpleasant surprise flying it in windy and gusty conditions - it was the hardest plane to control despite being the biggest. The wings were rocking back and forth like a pendulum.

I think it's because it also has the lowest wing loading, and could benefit from heavier batteries.
Here's the video. Seeing the hard landings made me cringe
