I've noticed that although sidethrusters are very powerful in normal flight, they become much less so in glide mode. This is unfortunate: why aren't the sidethrusters equally effective (same accel) in both situations? I assume it's because of some quirk with FS2's engine, but can anything be done about it? Are there any plans for fixing it at some point?
EDIT: Just checked, the same issue exists for rear and forward thrust as well (although it doesn't seem nearly as pronounced for forward thrust).
EDIT2: Correction: the forward/rear thrusters are less powerful if $use newtonian damping is enabled. Otherwise, they are more powerful. This is the only difference I notice from changing the "$use newtonian damping" flag.
